Mr. Pathirana and family made us feel welcomed and cared for during our one night stay. Mr. Pathirana arranged a guide for Kandy at a very reasonable rate and advised us on what to see in our one day in Kandy. Then he also took special care to make sure we had suitable arrangements for our trip back to Colombo... More

The house was so lovely, well decorated, nicely furnished, naturally beautiful mountain view when you open the window. I have to say something about... More

Spotlessly clean with the best food we'd eaten in 3 weeks travelling Sri Lanka. Pati and his family are fantastic hosts, they have the use of their own 3 wheeler and their driver is a real gentleman. It means you can visit Kandy and the surrounding area without the aggravation of bargaining for a driver. The prices were perfect and... More

Perched in the hills above Kandy, this friendly family home has a few rooms for guests. The owner is very welcoming and will put himself out to make sure uyou enjoy your stay. We visited Kandy from here, although the road is narrow and winding and you need a good tuk tuk driver! The most memorable part of our visit... More

We liked a lot the Hanthana House, it was nice to spend some time in a sri lankan family house. The room was very nice as well as the bathroom, both really new. The house in general was nice, the food very good and it was nice to have dinner with other travellers to share expériences. The service was perfect,... More

High in the hills above Kandy, Hanthana House is a private home offering an insight into family life in Sri Lanka. We spent 2 nights there. Our en-suite room was spacious, comfortable and spotless. The hosts gave us a warm welcome with afternoon tea complete with delicious cake. Their son and daughter were delightful - both musically talented, we enjoyed... More

Pathi and his family were a joy to stay with. The food and variety of choices were excellent quality in a family friendly atmosphere. We thought the standard of accommodation was high in comparison with others of similar price point. Pathi is a very helpful host. He arranged some lovely helpful drivers for us from Negombo and to Sigriya. These... More

After a crazy trip from Australia to Kandy via Colombo, arriving at Hanthana House was like arriving to our own little patch of paradise. Set in the hills looking down over Kandy City it's only a 10 minute drive from the hustle and bustle of the town but feels a million miles away. Pathi on arrival showed us to our... More

What a wonderful place! Located up in the hills above Kandy, with amazing views, fresh clean air, and very peaceful. Pathi and his wife Suba made us feel so welcome, as did their two children. Nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were very clean, modern and comfortable. The food was absolutely delicious, and the cookery lesson was great fun.... More

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
