After a horrible trip of 40 hours and a driver who could not find hanthana house, we were so happy to arrive. Our host was really the best host we had in sri lanka. He phoned with our driver and told him where to drive (after we have driven around in the mountains for 2 hours without a plan..). It...

The four of us, girls from Malaysia, stayed at this accommodation for 3 days (9th March - 12th). Our host took such good care of us and ensured that we had a comfortable and safe stay in Kandy. The food served was excellent and the entire home was clean and well maintained. Our rooms were well furnished with our requirements...

This is coming in a bit late. But we would like to travel Mr. Pathi and his charming wife. Subha for being wonderful hosts at their homestay - Hanthana House, Kandy. Located in the Hanthana hills, their home is a modern charming stay with spacious well lit rooms, extremely clean and removed from the main town hustle bustle, but accessible...

We came here slightly unplanned after our trip in the Knuckles ranges was cut short due to rain - but what a lucky find! This is a real family home in the hills and a fabulous break from the hustle and bustle of Kandy. We paid a little extra for dinner and it was the best - and most authentic...

A perfect place to return to after a busy day sightseeing in Kandy. We spent three nights there and loved meeting the owner Pathi and his lovely wife as well as the other guests staying there. The meals were superb, all home cooked and absolutely delicious. We were made to feel so welcome and would definitely recommend this accommodation to...

We stayed two nights here. We booked a standard but were upgraded on arrival to a superior which was very nice. The room was spotlessly clean, had a huge, comfy bed, good bathroom and some nice touches. There was also a great view from the balcony. The owner is really so kind and helpful, nothing was too much trouble, including...

Hanthana House is well out of Kandy, up windy roads set on a hill surrounded by tall, beautiful trees. Our top floor room was comfortable, with a perfectly good bathroom. We had a balcony looking out over the tree lined hill, and looking beyond to mountains the other side of Kandy. We were a group of 6 friends, and congregated...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hanthana House is a boutique type accommodation which offers a comfortable stay in an attractive surroundings with added benefit of tasty and Srilankan Cooking which you can learn to prepare yourself!. Hanthana House consists of two en suite double bedrooms and one en suite twin bedroom and one en suite triple room, all with generous balconies overlooking the neighbouring tea estate. The bedrooms have ceiling fans, teak furniture and polished cement floors as well as a wet room with shower, basin and WC. The newly-built spacious and light dining room also has views of the tea estate and it is open to the generous new kitchen, where cookery lessons are always available! The upstairs sitting area has a comfy sofa and armchairs as well as a piano and Wi-Fi access! An organic kitchen garden is planned which will provide most of the vegetables for meals, and various walks through tea plantations and up to local viewpoints are accessed from the front door. Hanthana House is approximately 4 km from Kandy in the Hanthana hills, an area famous for cultivating some of the first tea grown on the island and the location of the Ceylon Tea Museum. Please be aware that a homestay is neither a hotel nor a guesthouse as you live and socialise with a family in their home. Think of it as an extension of your own home, with the usual creature comforts and no-one to make your bed or clean your room on a daily basis! The real experience is the interaction with a Sri Lankan family as they go about their daily life. ... more   less
