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

As soon as we walked into our cottage, the views just blew us away. From the huge window you could see the valley stretching out below, we were even above the clouds at some points! The room itself was simple and clean, shower was a bit temperamental, but really no issues. Apart from the views, the other unique aspect were... More

If you want to get away from it all, this is the perfect setting. Apart from the incredible views - make sure you book one of the two cabins as the view from the other two rooms is obscured by vegetation - it was great to get an insight into a Sri Lankan family's life and chat to them about...

Most friendly host family, attentive, helpful, organised our transfer from the station. The kids were a delight to be around, the mum cooks amazing Sri Lankan food. They really create a lovely family atmosphere. Make sure you stay in one of the cottages, breathtaking view. The rooms are basic, as to be expected for this price. But it has everything... More

+Authentic family feeling +Food was the BEST +Breathtaking scenery and really exotic feeling with all the monkeys ;) Probably the best place to stay in Haputale! Good spot to take it easy, and near to Lipton´s Seat and the Dambatenne Tea Factory.
