This Villa is located in beautiful hillside in a 35 acres of land…therefore getting the maximum privacy you can ask for. This luxury boutique villa offers a beautiful view of the hills and a poolside which will always be super cold. Rooms and the rest of the area are beautifully furnished and very spacious. Keep in mind if you are booking the entire villa they have two quadruple rooms and two suite type double rooms, so dividing the rooms among friends can get tricky. Best thing about this place will always be the food. They put on quite the display for every meal and it’s absolutely gorgeous and very tasty. We also had a 1 1/2year old kid with us and they prepared special meals just for her. Suranga, Samantha and Raghu were excellent. Thank you for having us on 23-24-25th of September. It was a super relaxing experience for us. Hopefully we’ll plan another vacation to Mount Havana again!

Beautiful luxury villa amidst the mountain! We traveled with kids and the staff were super accommodated all our request and even went out of their way to organize my son's birthday party there. Food was great and the rooms were very clean and the staff were excellent. Would highly recommend this place for families or a group of friends looking to travel.

I had the good fortune to stay at the Mount Havana Villa and it was honestly the best lodging experience in my 12 day journey around Sri Lanka! Beginning with the warm welcome from Chanaka upon arrival, every minute of my time on the property was curated to my specific desires. From the sunset hike around the organic farm to a delicious dinner served outside, I was instantly comfortable and relaxed. A beautifully serene night's sleep was followed by a sunrise swim overlooking the mountains, delicious fresh fruit and juice from the property, and a memorable Sri Lankan breakfast of dal and eggplant curry along with homemade roti. I only wish I had more time to spend. Highly recommended!

Beautiful luxury Boutique Villa, surronded by the blue mountains of the garden hill country cities. Beautifully built villa with a amazing infinity pool and a tastefully desingned flower garden and all the modern ameneties. The villa is silent, romantic and great relaxation. The rooms are very clean and large with five star hotel standards. Natures walk and a dip in the pool are amazing for a deserving traveller. The food selection is amazing and heginic with mouthwatering dishes. The staff are courtieous and very friendly. A good night sleep is guaranteed with a romantic dinner in the night.

Amazing hotel! Pity we only stayed for a night. Comfortable rooms - very clean. Great breakfast- most of the food is grown in their gardens. Staff were very helpful. You pay for what you get! Definitely recommend.

We arrived at Mount Havana after a bit of a difficult drive, it was raining and we were so tired from travel, but the minute we arrived we couldn't wipe the smiles off our faces. The place is SO peaceful and the view is magnificent. We loved our 2 nights there - we did a trip into Kandy one day, and just relaxed on the grounds the other. The food was great, the staff were incredibly friendly and personable and the rooms were beautiful. I couldn't recommend this place more.

We stayed in the aftermath of the devastating Easter bombings but we couldn't imagine a place where we felt more welcome and save then at mount Havana. The staff is swift, professional and friendly and always at your service with a push on the button. The menu is of high quality and they serve great wines. Do take a tour of the 25 acre eco farm surrounding the complex and get educated about al the local spices and fruits, afterwards you can enjoy the infinity pool with an amazing view. For us it was a special treat for my birthday but we thought we got great value for money! Highly recommend!

We stayed at Mount Havana for 2 nights in January and it was wonderful. It is very out the way from Kandy, but I would recommend staying here rather than in the centre of Kandy. We checked into the hotel and had the pool to ourselves all afternoon. We felt like it was our own private villa. We had to just press the bell when we wanted any food or drinks which was wonderful as we didn't feel like we were being watched by staff at all. The food was wonderful for lunch, breakfast and dinner. We visited Kandy one evening for a walk around the temple and popped to a few bars and a restaurant, which for us was more than enough time spent in the city and so glad we chose to relax in the hills instead. We were taken on a walk around the grounds of the hotel, which was beautiful and a must do when you stay. I would highly recommend staying here on your travels around Sri Lanka.

This beautiful and peaceful property is nestled in stunning scenery and offers the perfect location for those looking for a totally relaxing break. The food is exceptional and offers great Sri Lankan options for breakfast and dinner with much of the produce being grown and produced on the property. The guided tour of the 25 acre property is a 'must do'. Surang and his staff are all so charming and helpful and we thank them for making our visit so enjoyable.

Definitely not a five star hotel ! Nearly two hours drive from Kandy, in the middle of nowhere. We thought at least it would be a quiet retreat but not at all because there is a road right in front where buses pass flat out and hoot every 5 minutes ! Definitely not recommandable! Looked liked a ghost house or old age home of some sort! Zero atmosphere and felt not safe there. Had to ring a bell if we needed assistance!!!
