Slightly underwhelming first impressions of this place but welcomed by tea and tasty homemade treats. This is a family affair and their hospitality is fantastic. Rooms are very basic and could do with a few small additional items but these are on the way apparently. The food is all home made and delicious, nice rotti for breakfast to set you... More

Amazing home stay in the mountains near Haputale. After being picked up from the train station, I was met by the loving family. Since it was almost diner, I was invited to eat and it was the most amazing rice&curry I had during my stay in Sri Lanka. The owner and his family are very friendly and go every way... More

View and the environment is wonderful. But they give their priority to the foreigners. They serve meals to the locals only after serving the foreigners. So we had to wait till 09.00 p.m. to get the dinner. Also they limit the water supply all the time. Don't recommend this place. We are a bit disappointed.

Viraj and his family made our stay very special. Even we did not book in advance and the Hostel was fully booked, the Dias family managed to get us a place to sleep and served us the most delicious homemade food. The view from this place is just breathtaking and the Hostel is a good starting point for hiking tours,... More

We had a great time at Dias Rest with Viraj and his family. We arrived without reservation and the place was fully booked but Viraj managed to find a place for us to stay. Exceptional view right from the hostel, delicious meals and fair prices.

Probably our favourite place we stayed in Sri Lanka: wonderful, helpful family; stunning, unbeatable views; and very tasty food! My husband and I had heard about White Monkey from a couple of other travellers earlier in our journey around Sri Lanka and said it was a must stay - they were completely right and we are so grateful!
