We stayed in this guesthouse for two nights, and had a wonderful stay. If you are looking for a luxury hotel with super clean rooms you might have to look further, but if you like to stay in a basic guesthouse with an amazing view, great food and lovely people, I would definitely recommend this place. We did not have... More

Dias and his family welcomed us into his home with open arms, they were super friendly and really helpful with ideas to visit the local area. Their home is 3km outside Haputale and the view is fantastic, with the rolling hills of the tea country poking out through the mist as far as the eye can see. We went on... More

We really really enjoyed this place! The view was excellent, the food was delicious and the family was very good spirited, helpful, humorous and honest. People should be aware that the area around Haputale generally has very shifty weather and that it can get very windy and also rainy from time to time. We didn't mind that but thought it... More

Awesome. That was my first impression. The landscape is amazing. This family runs a cosy guesthouse in a tea estate. There is so much nature and wildlife all alround. Lot of fruit trees, wild monkeys and birds. They have a perfect view to Lipton Seat and some tea factories. But also to the south coast and the big lake at... More

The family seemed ok, I can see why others liked them. The father of the family welcomed us warmly with some food and tea, but I noticed him shoo his wife away after she'd brought in the tea. The rest of the family seemed cross and a bit unfriendly. The hut re-defines the word basic - it is like a... More

Owned by such a lovely family! Absolutely beautiful scenery with Lipton's tea plantation close by (great trip out!). The family can also take you to visit Horton Plains (quite a distance away). Horton Plains is impressive but Lipton's seat has a FAR better view. Great place to stay. The family will cook meals for you, these are delicious! We were... More

White Monkey cottages are quite a different experience from the other homestays/guest houses we had in Sri Lanka. The cottages are quite big and cheap but very basic - the toilet was not working, the hot water switch barely changed anything and without isolation it got very cold inside. However - the view is amazing from the little chairs on... More

This was one of our favourite experiences during our trip to Sri Lanka. You had the privacy of being in a small and simple cottage overlooking an amazing hillside vista (provided it isn't too cloudy!) but also get treated the the most warm and friendly Sri Lankan hospitality, delicious home cooked meals and the company of Dias, family and fellow...

Staying at this place is incredible. Not only do you have some of the best views over the hill county you can find in Sri Lanka, but the guest family treats you as if you are part of the family. Everyone will help you get the most out of your time, whilst helping you to have an eye on your... More

we (couple with 6yr old daughter) stayed for 3 nights and couldn't help but shiver in the evenings- the cottage gets cold and damp quite quickly and you need all the blankets you can get! Fortunately, the Dias family is very friendly and helpful and really go out of their way to make your stay comfortable. You eat almost as... More
