We arrived at Horathapola for our 2 night stay after arriving in Sri Lanka, mainly to relax and recover from our flight before doing our tour of Sri Lanka. Horthapola is a lovely place to stay, more like someone's home rather than a hotel. The staff are wonderful, always there but never intrusive. The food is great and you can... More

If I could rate higher than a 5, I would. The only thing I regret? Not staying longer. From the ice cold fresh coconut upon arrival to the breakfast feast and casual lounging by the pool, the estate was more charming and relaxing than we ever expected! Staff were incredibly hospitable and knowledgeable- the walk around the plantation grounds was... More

Lovely people and a perfect introduction to Sri Lanka just an hour and a half from the airport. The property has a stylish colonial feel without ever feeling contrived or forced. The pace is gentle and we were lucky enough to have the place to ourselves for the first of a two night stay. Modern and luxurious pool and simple... More

We also enjoyed a bullock cart ride around the village in which we saw some more of the area. overall it was a really enjoyable stay and i wish we could have... More

This was an overnight stop over before we made our way to Sigiriya. From start to finish it was excellent. A welcome drink of refreshing coconut water followed by dinner. There is no menu but a wonderful array of Sri Lanka dishes were prepared for us- all delicious using local vegetables. They catered for my sons no spice requirements as... More

We travelled with our two children, arriving at the Estate after flights from the UK around noon. We were greeted with huge smiles, and a fantastic Sri Lankan welcome. After getting settled, we had toasties with sambal, and our culinary experience had begun! The evening meal was one of the best of our trip, perfectly cooked and with plenty of... More

We stayed here for one night at the beginning of our tour of Sri Lanka. We had a camare room in the garden which was lovely (apart from the huge spider which dropped onto my shoulder from the ceiling when I was drying my hair!) This didn't spoil our experience here. Food was fabulous, from chocolate cake with our first... More

After a long journey, being greeted with a cool coconut drink and an a/c comfortable room was lovely. The colonial style hotel, with its beautiful frangipani tree, fan cooled terraces and clear swimming pool was a perfect beginning to our exploration of Sri Lanka. Our stay coincided with the local village's new year festival and the hotel took us there... More
