What a find! I'm a total sucker for good quality sheets and the bedding at hanthana house was beautiful. So was the food. The best dinners we've had in Sri Lanka! But the best thing about Hanthana House is the hospitality. Patti and his family went the extra mile to make sure we were comfortable and informed. Our two year... More

Rating is based on a 2 night stay. The House is run by a welcoming Sri lankan Family and is located around 8-10 minutes from Kandy on Hanthana Hill.

We spent 2 nights at Hanthana House. The family made us feel very welcome. Our en-suite room on the first floor was comfortable, and we benefited from having access to the verandah, where we enjoyed watching the wild boar feed. The home cooked food was delicious, and we appreciated the effort that went into preparing it. Tranquil setting about 20... More

Hanthana House is set in the hills above Kandy on a narrow, steep road. The house is built on the side of a small valley overlooking and surrounded by trees and small hills. From the balcony there are wild plants to see and lots of birds. In the evenings there are wild boar and porcupines close by. The house has... More

If you are looking for a hotel then this isn't the place for you. The accommodation is a short distance from Kandy (you will need transport) set on a hillside on the edge of open countryside, the wildlife is all around you in a nice way. Rooms are comfortable although our en suite bathroom felt unfinished and lacked ventilation. Food... More

Found the home stay very well maintained with all basic amenities. The family was very hospitable and welcoming. Though we found the food a little expensive, the variety offered was very good, and suited our individual palate. Very picturesque location.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hanthana House is a boutique type accommodation which offers a comfortable stay in an attractive surroundings with added benefit of tasty and Srilankan Cooking which you can learn to prepare yourself!. Hanthana House consists of two en suite double bedrooms and one en suite twin bedroom and one en suite triple room, all with generous balconies overlooking the neighbouring tea estate. The bedrooms have ceiling fans, teak furniture and polished cement floors as well as a wet room with shower, basin and WC. The newly-built spacious and light dining room also has views of the tea estate and it is open to the generous new kitchen, where cookery lessons are always available! The upstairs sitting area has a comfy sofa and armchairs as well as a piano and Wi-Fi access! An organic kitchen garden is planned which will provide most of the vegetables for meals, and various walks through tea plantations and up to local viewpoints are accessed from the front door. Hanthana House is approximately 4 km from Kandy in the Hanthana hills, an area famous for cultivating some of the first tea grown on the island and the location of the Ceylon Tea Museum. Please be aware that a homestay is neither a hotel nor a guesthouse as you live and socialise with a family in their home. Think of it as an extension of your own home, with the usual creature comforts and no-one to make your bed or clean your room on a daily basis! The real experience is the interaction with a Sri Lankan family as they go about their daily life. ... more   less
