Yes. It is 15 mins tuk tuk from central but that's a good thing! The host is a hugely interesting character with an amazing cook wife. They really made us genuinely feel at home. Wondering around their home you discover lots of antiques all with their own story. Great food cooked by Suzie. Just stay here. Trust!

We stayed for 1 night unfortunately because we loved it. The property is very nice and peaceful. A great escape from the chaotic trafic of Kandy. We met the hosts and their beautiful dogs. They were so friendly and helpful, lovely people! We slept in the chalet. It was cozy and clean. Great experience

This is not a usual place, it's simply THE best place where we stayed in Sri Lanka. The landlords are the most charming and discreet people we met during our journey, always helpful and ready to give the most interesting information about the country and its customs or talk about the family history of the manor, the food is excellent,...

This was one of the highlights of our trips! We stayed in the bottom cabana by the jungle it was immaculately clean and very impressive .. We had a great shower and fridge for our cold drinks. The wildlife is amazing , spying porcupines and squirrels at night with many amazing birds,fireflies zipping around,and some lovely well treated ridgebacks :)... More

Marcus and I stayed at the Kandyan Manor in November. We were not disappointed. We stayed for one week bed and breakfast and also had evening meals during our stay. Bhathiya Suzy were the perfect hosts. The food was absolutely amazing along with the hospitality. Bhathiya and Suzy could not do more in making us feel at home and to... More

Great place to stay, just outside Kandy. Beautiful home and lovely owners. We enjoyed a great dinner in the garden, some candlelight and tranquillity ; wonderful ! Mr. Ratwatte, the owner, took the time to talk with us extensively, we really felt welcome! If you go to Kandy, go to this guesthouse !

The Kandyan Manor was so lovely and authentic and Bhathiya and Suzy were such great hosts it would be difficult to find better hosts in Sri Lanka. We looked forward to returning to the Kandyan Manor each day it truly felt like home. Suzy's homecooked meals were the best we had in Sri Lanka. The hosts really made our stay... More

We couldn't have had a better experience than when we did staying at the Kandyan Manor. Bhathiya, Suzy and all of the family welcomed us into their home and catered to our needs with generosity from the moment we arrived. We would recommend this booking to anyone visiting Kandy. We were helped with generations of local knowledge and also got... More

This homestay will make sure you will leave kandy very relaxed! The home stay is an wonderfull jungle villa which is decorated very cosy.
