A world of colonial charm that blends perfectly with its sublime surroundings of rolling tea plantations and emerald green forests. A beautifully restored 10 room bungalow, dating back to the days of the Raj, sits amidst the lush vegetation. Only 15 minutes from Kandy city center, the Hanthana mountain range is recognized as one of Sri Lanka’s most picturesque regions and the panoramic view from our bungalow will not disappoint. This heritage residence is reminiscent of a by-gone era, revived to accommodate every whim and fancy of the discerning traveler. The main bungalow features 6 exclusive and individually themed bedrooms with 4 more rooms being situated in the Stables. All accommodation is split into 3 exclusive categories. Each room has its own unique character and flavor waiting to be discovered and enjoyed by guests.

From the moment we contacted W15 reservations (Shahi) we realized that was no ordinary hotel. The booking was extremely efficient and professional. We had Tharanga contacting us prior to our arrival asking about our food preferences on arrival and ensuring we found the hotel by sending a pin. When we arrived we were welcomed graciously by the staff and shown to our room immediately which was absolutely beautiful and luxurious. We had a wonderful 3 nights, the food was plentiful and first class. The chef is extremely skilled and the beef was the best I have had in Sri Lanka. The experiences were fun and we took lots of pictures. We did a hike up to the mountain which is a nature lovers dream. Our guide Sanath was very knowledgeable with a degree in zoology and botany. He gave us a great commentary about the plants etc My son and my husband did the electric bike ride which they enjoyed..but it was not for the fainthearted, it was difficult! We all did the 11km tour of the area in the amazing vintage landrover. This was my highlight. I thoroughly enjoyed this..not to be missed. The views from W15 are absolutely breathtaking and are constantly changing. We really enjoyed having our delicious meals whilst looking out onto the mountain range. My son absolutely loved the swing, swinging with that view in front of you was spectacular. What really made this experience extra special was the personal butler..we had Tharanga and Gehan, both were absolutely fantastic. Extremely professional, helpful and courteous. I cannot rate this hotel highly enough if you get a chance..just do it! You won't regret it.

Really happy with our stay will definitely come again and recommend to other friends and family .

What a total disappointment! It’s more expensive than Tea Trails, yet served us Nestcafe in the morning. Morning coffee matters a lot to me. I don’t blame the staff at all, it’s the management that should know better. When I’ve complained they said they ran out of their “Guatemalan Beans”. If I’m the manager/owner of such a high end place, I’d personally drive from Colombo with at least a pack of local Hansa coffee. I do not expect this from a regular lodge, however when you charge this much and market it as a high end boutique, we go there with certain set of expectations. Overall people were service oriented, however I just couldn’t get over with the coffee situation as we’ve stayed there for three nights.

Dear mangkaru, Greetings from W15 and we sincerely thank you for taking the time to leave us your valuable feedback. We are sorry to hear that your stay with us was less than satisfactory. After taking time to thoroughly look into your feedback we have identified a supply issue as the reason for the shortage in coffee. Due to the Sinhalese and Tamil new year, during which you stayed with us, our courier partner was unable to deliver essential goods to us on time. Our team did it’s best to manage the issue on the first day and was able to provide imported coffee for the remainder of your stay. Our sincerest apologies for this shortcoming and we hope that apart from this issue your stay with us was satisfactory and we are also happy to note that you were happy with the service provided by our team at Hanthana. Thanking you once again for your valuable time and feedback. Best regards, Amrick Andrado Manager – Sales
