Really can't fault this place. A real taste of colonial life in Sri Lanka. Great food cooked by an excellent chef, Sebastain. Outstanding staff, including the young bloke Charlie. Great personal touch from the owner, Anthony, who was full of stories and trinkets of local information. Nothing was too much trouble to arrange. We even almost caused a fire in... More

An absolute gem of a place. Rooms were clean & spacious and the staff looked after you really well. Beautiful home cooked Sri Lankan food, including wild boar curry all eaten on the terrace with a magnificent view. Also fantastic & easy walks through the tea plantations! Would highly recommend!

Friendly service and cosy setup makes you feel just like home. The candlelit alfresco Sri Lankan dinner was an absolute gem. We arrived at about 3:30pm and then took a short walk around, visiting the tea plantation around and tea factory. :)

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 days & 2 nights. My greatest memory of staying here was the FOOD! Some of the best Sri Lankan curry during our 2.5 week holiday. After the first night of delicious food, I knew I needed to learn from the best. The head chef Sebastian was nice enough to let me into... More

We arrived at Rangala from Kandy. The house is set in a stunning location and is a beautifully restored planters property. The staff can not be faulted the food is superb and Anthony the owner is a very hospitable host. Do drag yourself away from the house which is hard to do, and do the walks around the plantations, they... More

We arrived late and were greeted by the owner and the manager, we were the only guests for the two nights we stayed and we were shown to our room which was on the back on the property with windows all around looking out over the incredible views. The rooms are simple but have everything you need, i would definitely... More

Charming warm and friendly jplace with an exquisite view surrounded by tea estates and far from the clamour of Kandy. The cook Sebastien made us the most exquisite Sri Lankan food and the service was delightful attentive but not intrusive . The library was well stocked.

This is my 4th or 5th visit and the first with two friends who spent their first three nights ever in Sri Lanka, here. A perfect place to unwind after a long journey. We slept and ate and swam and festered all excellently, all well ministered to by Anthony and Sam and Amila and Sebastian. Feeling a bit more active,... More

We stayed here with our 20-month old daughter for three nights, and wish we had stayed longer. From the moment of arrival, everything was perfect. The 180 degree views from the veranda are amazing, the pool peaceful and quiet, and the grounds and building are like paradise. The food presented by Sebastian was incredible, every bite a treat. We stayed... More
