“Great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

Coming from Colombo we spent 5 days in Mount Havana with another family for New Year eve. Our friend is in wheel chair and the very attentive staff made everything to help and provide a confortable stay for him as well. The location is outstanding, feeling surrounded by the Sri Lanka garden like nature, the attentive staff attention to any need or request by the guests and the calm discreet atmosphere. Everything aims to follow the same concept: the Mount Havana is elegant through reduction to good construction materials down to the
culinary ingredients for the food, avoiding the unnecessary and the waste. Room are spacious and comfortable. The food is prepared with accuracy and may take some understandable time to be served, but very tasty taking advantage of the vegetable garden. Overall an impression of love in following and developing this concept by the manager and the staff. Accommodation was provided for our two driver for free.
A recommended place. Corrado Signorotti, Shanghai

A month ago ended our Ceylon holiday. We still remember Mount Havana. The hotel is very nice, cozy, hospitable staff. We first was somehow not on itself, but we quickly got used to such attention. I liked everything - accommodation, food (thanks to the chef), a nice swimming pool, garden, monkeys ...... We would like to go back there again ......

Stayed here for two nights, warm welcome and lovely service throughout our stay. Staff and Management were really helpful and friendly, Rooms are big, tastefully furnished and spotless. Food was good and nothing seemed too much trouble. This is a great place to chill out, take a walk in the grounds and just unwind. Must admit that you can be tempted not to want to leave the grounds once you have checked-in. Everybody just smiled, this is a really special place. We will come back in a few years!

Room Tip: It's a log trip to get here but well worth the effort, in fact it's the best part of Kandy!

Spent two evenings at Mount Havana during our stay in Sri Lanka. The service and attention to detail - outstanding. Really appreciative of the efforts of management to be environmentally responsible in all aspects of the property including the garden and the grounds.

Beautiful location. You feel just one with nature. Lovely plantations, coffee and tea and all fruits and vegetables are home grown. Spent very relaxing 2 nights. very convenient with children and family, We could order before and get food not in the menu also. Friendly and very helpful staff.

Room Tip: Very few rooms are there and all are good with private garden

The owners of this place are really trying - perhaps a little too hard in some areas. The establishment is a delight, set in extensive gardens with a pleasant outdoor dining area fronted by a lawn and small infinity pool with views of mountains in the distance.

Our room was terrific - probably the best we had in Srti Lanka - with a bathroom to die for.

Our host took us on an inpromptu guided tour of the estate which was fascinating. And their attempts to be as self-sufficient as possible were impressive.

Probably the least satisfactory part was the food. Not breakfast - that was excellent - but dinner was puffed up to be much more than it really was. The "executive chef" provided completely edible fare but not to the standard that the establishment's blurb suggested.

We enjoyed a relaxing 2 nights here. This place is well worth the money if you stay here The whole time. Service is excellent and the chef is skilled, using largely produce grown on the estate. We especially recommend the Devilled cashew nuts.
However, the driver service was good but greatly over priced compared to local firms. The room quality was good, but would need to replace the blinds and fix the wardrobe door to be excellent.
