Sujatha's home is truly Paradise. Hard to find but worth the effort. A beautiful home set in a lovely, peaceful garden. Birds and geckos abound. Apparently there are monkeys but we did not see any - just as well as they eat the tomatoes growing in the garden. Breakfast was one of the best we had. Try the Buffalo curds... More

Roney and Sujatha are fantastic hosts and interesting people. Their rooms are spacious, clean and very comfortable and the food is authentic and proudly Sri Lankan. The cooking demonstration with Sujatha was one of the highlights of my trip so far. It's a quick bus or tuk-tuk trip down to the lake, so as far as I'm concerned (after having... More

I assure you that you won't regret staying here. The house is lovely. It's a bit further from the lake but it is easily reachable by bus or tuk tuk. Sujatha and Ronnie are great, friendly and helpful. They can help you with anything you need as a traveler and at the same time you have your privacy and peace.

Breakfast each morning was a delight as we were served a different ethnic breakfast each... More

Ronnie and Sujatha are so welcoming and made us feel at home. And a lovely home it is too! Very near the town of Kandy but in a lovely quiet location in the tree tops. The homestay dinner was one of the best meals we have had in Sri Lanka. Cannot recommend staying here highly enough!

We stayed 3 nights recently and were made to feel at home. Sujatha and Roney are such kind people. Their house is set in a lovely quiet area 15 minutes drive to Kandy centre. Our room was spacious and clean. Sujatha cooked a wonderful Sri Lankan meal for us with such care. Sujathas Homestay was a highlight as it gave... More

Roney and Suthaja are incredibly helpful hosts and have me lots of useful travel information. The house is a 5-10min rickshaw ride (300-400LKR) away from the city centre so as long as you are aware that is the location - then you will love the place. It's very calm and peaceful here so if you want to be in the... More

Roney and Sujatha have a very pretty and immaculately kept house just outside the hustle and bustle of Kandy. You can tell that the hosts are well travelled and understand what great hospitality is all about! They arranged a reliable tuk-tuk driver for us which made getting around very easy - he was always happy to get us where we... More
