This was our first stop on our first visit to Sri Lanka. We arrived at 5 in the morning and were welcomed by fresh coconut juice in the pod. We were then given a temporary room where could relax until our room was ready. Everything about this place was just perfect. The staff, the food, the rooms, the ambience, and...

It seems that this amazing place thrives off it's proximity to Colombo Airport as the majority of it's guests either use the hotel as a place to recover from a long flight or as a final hurrah before saying goodbye to Sri Lanka. Horathapola is actually so good that it should be a 'destination' hotel that is integral to one's...

My wife said that the dinner and breakfast we had here (assortment of Sri Lankan food) were her favorite and most memorable meals throughout our honeymoon (we went to multiple different countries). Really good service here too.

This was our first stop on our Sri Lanka leg of our honeymoon and we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay!

First night in Sri Lanka. Could not have been better. 90min drive from international airport you are welcomed in a secluded estate. 5 or 6 rooms ( call them appartement ) each beautifully maintained and with everything you need. Dinner is served when you want and delicious. Apparently there is a market on Saturday and you can have a visit...

I and my wife spent one night at this very private and comfortable Estate Bungalow. Staff was friendly and attentive while being able to not invade privacy. Shady gardens and the peace and quiet was the highlight of our stay. It's good value for money for people who want just peace and tranquillity.

What a gorgeous, restful place. The house has such a lovely, relaxing atmosphere, the rooms are beautiful, the pool and grounds are lush and zen, and the chilled coconut drinks are delicious. Plus the staff was incredibly nice and accommodating and we really enjoyed learning about the workings of the plantation and its history.
