Horathapola estate is a little corner of heaven! It was simply perfect in every way. The food was tasty and thoughtfully prepared. The rooms are of old world charm with all the modern comforts. The grounds are immaculately maintained. The staff were excellent. It was the most relaxing time we have had in a very long time.
Horathapola bungalow is amazing.so serene and calm.the food is excellent staff are so obliging and welcoming.a place to either relax and enjoy solitude or there are many treks..paddy fields and gentle cows and feisty donkeys to pet.and the birds ..myriads of them.its a pleasure to listen to their beautiful songs. The bungalow is spacious and extremely well maintained.the pool and jacuzzi are a must use... Will definitely be back
We stayed here for two nights and couldn't recommend it highly enough. Beautiful large room with four poster bed and great big bathroom. Everything was spotless. The staff were fantastic, excellent service throughout our stay. All the rooms have seating areas outside perfect for relaxing with tea and a book. The Sri Lankan food was some of the best we've had, breakfast under the frangipani tree was particularly lovely. While there, go on a bike ride in the surrounding area and explore the coconut estate.
Horathapola Estate is a perfect weekend getaway from Colombo or ideal for a short stay to recover from long haul flights! The coconut estate is a little gem that has retained its charms over the years and refused to embark on the fast treadmill of modern life. The place oozes tranquility and beauty. The gardens are so magnificent and all facilities arranged with meticulous care to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. The food is organic, local and cooked to perfection. There is plenty to do; bullock or bike rides, walk around the estate and learn about the workings of a coconut estate and more, or just relax by the pool and jacuzzi with a book. We loved the place and in particular getting to now the team at the estate. It was a perfect weekend at the estate, one that reminds you why you so much love Sri Lanka! Thank you Horathapola, we will be back!…
We spent 2 nights here just to have a rural weekend break from Colombo without driving for hours. Beautiful natural scenery, lovely bird sounds, and the interior of the house was wonderful. Even the cutlery and crockery were top quality and gorgeous. Traditional rice and curry dinner was exceptional with just the right amount of spice so that you could actually taste the other ingredients. I highly recommend this fabulous place for those enjoy peace in paradise.
