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

Amazing view from our room down the hillside which we got up to watch sunrise for, amazing. The family are lovely, they invited us in and we instantly felt welcomed. If you want to stay in somewhere quiet, with a good view and experience great Sri Lankan food with a very friendly family, stay here. Also when we were there... More

Already with such a welcoming and warm family and the amazing views provided, the place is awesome. To this you have to add the knowleadgeable head of the family (with you can have an interesting insight in politics and environment), the great cook and the perfect location (Haputale is just gorgeous): it is a must place for any backpacker in...

The reason i keep on coming back to this place is the warmth and hospitality of the Family. The cottages are mostly full throughout the year so make sure to book early to avoid disappointment. The view from the Cottages are breathtaking. Several of the locations in and Haputale can be easily reached from White Monkey Dias Rest. Prices are... More
