We stayed in the upper cottage for 3 nights and had a fantastic time. Te guesthouse is a 3k outside of town, situated evenly between town and Lipton's seat. There's a bus that runs in both directions every half hour. Our bed looked out a huge front window at eagle rock and an endless expanse of tea plantations and the... More

Dias Rest came highly recommended and it didn't disappoint! My large private cabin window looked out onto miles and miles of amazing hill country greenery. The large family were incredibly welcoming, and it was a pleasure to be cooked breakfast and dinner each day, dining with other guests. The food was delicious. Despite a recent bereavement, the whole family couldn't... More

We spent only one night here and in our opinion this guesthouse is overrated. Room was very basic, shower water was mildly hot. Food but ok but not exceptional. The views are nice but it did not compensate for the rest. If you are looking for a very economic place and don't mind the rest, go ahead. If you prefer... More

The place is just amazing. If you are looking much more for experience, home-like atmosphere and wonderful fairytyle view from your place then for starched luxury hotel, I believe this is the place for you! A view from the hotel is much more beter then even from the Lipton's seat! We spent a couple of days with Dias family. They... More

I have not stayed in this place but met Viraj who is owner/owner's son during my travel. He was helping out through all my journey and was providing some hints and tips. We is a great person and very passionate about his country and traveling. I wish all hotel/ hostels owners were like him. We still stay in touch and... More

Lovely family staff, awesome view, great food. Go there if you can. Change your plans if you have to. Hope to go there someday again. I really enjoyed dining together with the other guests as you meet new people. Everything feels like family. Attached is a photo of the view from my bed when we stayed there.

The family at White Monkey go above and beyond to show you life in Haputale and make you feel like one of the family. Delicious meals, clean rooms and breathtaking (literally) views from up high. See you again!!

Room was basic but had all essentials (hot water; mosquito net; clean sheets) so great value for budget; however, what makes this place is the family who run it. They fall over themselves to help you, tell you when best to visit certain attractions, tailor tours/activities to your interest. One of my highlights in Sri Lanka was a hike along... More

Could not recommend this place more. The welcome was amazing, with their son viraj helping us settle in and making us feel part of the furniture. Described all the best walks (including those off the beaten track). The family provided lovely meals at a very reasonable price. On top of this, the view from the room is one of the... More

Wonderful location as it is on the way to lipton seat. The family is very welcoming, if you want a taste of the real sri lankan culture go for it! Typical breakfast which is delicious. Only flaw would be the fact that there is no Wifi, but we found it great to disconect from the social medias a little bit.... More
