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.

Very nice rooms, quiet part of Kandy as this is about 10 mins tuktuk ride from city centre. Super friendly and helpful host who provides dinner if you'd like @ AU$10 per person. Overall great guest house!

Hanthana House is a nice guest house, away from the city centre. Its not a Hotel its a guest house so do not expect all luxuries of a hotel. But Mr. Pathi and his wife are very welcoming. Food served is delicious and you can tell your preference to get the desired food. But food is very pricey as each... More

This is a very good choice if you are looking to have a guest house experience in Kandy. The family and staff are very friendly and helpful and will happily engage in conversation about your holiday plans. The food is very good and dinner options are worth taking as the options in Kandy are very limited. The owners will accommodate... More

Lovely stay at this home of a truly welcoming family. Room was spacious. Bathroom very nice, modern facilities. Excellent WiFi. But the best thing of all was the amazing home cooked food. Some of the best I had in Sri Lanka. Would definitely stay again and certainly will be recommending for anyone I know visiting Kandy!

This hotel was by far the best of our trip around the country. Pathi and his family go out of their way to make your stay memorable and you feel like part of their family. They helped arrange a car to Sigiriya, things to see in Kandy, as well as our next destination. We stayed upstairs and the room was... More

It was a great stay with a very homely and personal touch. Pathirana was very helpful right throughout from the reservation to the directions to the actual stay. We were treated as family and we were very much living and interacating with the family area of the house. The bedding and rooms, toilets were very clean and comfertable. The food... More

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
