Constructed along the lines of the early 18C Cape Dutch bungalows, the Dutch House is a tastefully designed two-storey villa that also incorporates design elements from the colonial bungalows found in the south of the island. Set on a two-acre garden filled with fruit trees and flowering plants that attract many birds, it has been a highly-praised boutique property which encompasses a distinct local feel, with the use of antiques, art and soft furnishings that are locally sourced. The Dutch House offers well-appointed bedrooms, Sri Lankan cuisine and an informal and relaxing ambience, with 24 hour buttler service and a chef on site. The Dutch House can accommodate up to four guests and is ideal for couples, friends travelling together and families with children over the age of 10.

Our stay at the Dutch House has been a delight. With Kannan catering to our every whim and Joseph cooking up a storm morning and night, we have been truly spoilt. Then there is the house itself.. so enchanting and beautifully appointed. It will be very sad to leave our Dutch

Dear Desiree, Unfortunately all our rooms are situation on the first floor and they are only accessible via staircase. The bathrooms have separate shower areas and there are power sockets near the beds. Best regards, Rajiv Dutch House Bandarawela Management
