Me and my brother had a perfect stay at dias. Nice basic but clean rooms with a stunning view over the valley and hills. So, if you will not need a luxery room, the host famaliy will make your stay unforgetteble!

One of the best places I've ever stayed. Truly beautiful location on the side of the hill with views that honestly left us speechless. The family are really lovely and cook great meals which are really good value. Guests all dine together which gives you a chance to meet new people and sample some real Sri Lankan cooking! We stayed... More

We were there from the 1st of August for two nights. We liked the great view from our cottage. Taking a few steps out of the cottage, you're in the middle of a tea estate and it smells like tea. The family of the owner was very friendly and helpful. One of the sons guided us to a great waterfall... More

This place has a great location on a hill with an awesome view from all rooms. You will be hosted by a family who makes your stay as comfortable as possible. The son, Viraj, is a great guy who is aiming to show you the beautiful area and can give a lot of advise. All the food we had was... More

Really welcoming people, but the best of all is the stunning views. We stayed in a double room downstairs, which was a litte chilly at night and we needed blankets - a relief after the coast! Close by there is a little walk to a lookout spot - Eagle Rocks, which showcases the location and cliff edges, and set in... More

We spent three nights here and thoroughly enjoyed it. Welcomed with a relaxed brew and some banter. Food is very good and the family so welcoming. Views are incredible and on a clear night the stars are even better. Take a nice stroll up to Lipton's seat from the tea factory and watch the pickers go about their job. Views... More

We had a great stay at Dias Rest. The first thing that hits you is the view. Amazing. Dias and his family were very welcoming - his wife cooked great dinners and breakfasts each day for all of the guests staying, one of his sons took us out on a waterfall tour and they also arranged a tuk tuk to...

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
