Tired after a long car drive from Habarama, we were greeted by our extremely welcoming hosts, Razik and Nasli. The room was very clean and comfortable (had a fridge!) and plenty of powerpoints to recharge electrical equipment. Razik explained everything about the hotel, ie., ensuring mosquitos and monkeys did not spoil our stay. Both hosts were knowledgeable of tourist trips within the vicinity - and that afternoon we were able to purchase tickets from them for us to go and see the traditional dancing at the arts centre (well worth it!) We ate lovely breakfasts on the patio. They will cater to any dietary requests, you just need to ask. In the evening we decided to have dinner there too. We would highly recommend any guest to purchase the dinner produced by Nasli and her wonderful chef, who has been with them for 31 years. The traditional Sri Lankan food is different every night,and is fantastic in taste and quality. The quantity was just right for us too., What made our four night stay there particularly special was the attentiveness and humour of both Razik and Nasli...they are lovely hosts who enjoy sharing stories and laughter. We would definitely revisit them if we visit Kandy again.
