The amazing home prepared food by Suba (Pathi`s Wife) gives a best selection of srilankan spices and a traditional taste. Its no point just staying there and not having their... More

Nice, value for money accommodation with very warm owners. You also see a different side of Kandy from here.. Would definitely go back here.. But do remember that it is a bit of a drive up in the hills to get here. Also remember to understand what meals are included in your deal. But th meals are also worth having... More

It is a family run home that offers good basic accommodation with AC, Wifi and truly excellent Sri Lankan cooking and the house has developed and modernised over the years... More

My mom and I stayed at the Hanthana House last year for 2 nights. This place was our favorite accommodation of all we had in Sri Lanka. The rooms are so pretty, very clean and tidy. The view is beautiful. But the best part are Pathi and his family! Pathi's wife prepared us a passion fruit drink upon our arrival.... More

My travel companion and I happened to stay at Hanthana House for Sinhala New Year, and it turned out to be one of the highlights of our visit to Sri Lanka.

A family of six, we stayed in the 'luxury' rooms which had the feel (and price) closer to a hotel than to a homestay. Very new, spacious, good views and well appointed, but without in-room tea/coffee facilities. There was a kettle in the shared area, and the staff will provide tea and coffee on request. The TV was not working... More

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
