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.

Stopped over at this lovely hotel on the first night of our Sri Lanka tour.

The staff were outstandingly friendly and nothing was too much...

We stayed at Horathapola Estate for two nights in early September, and we absolutely loved our time. We were welcomed late at night after the hour drive from the airport with ice cold coconuts that had the sweetest water I've ever tasted, and we were shown fabulous hospitality throughout our stay. The room was very comfortable, with a large, intricately...

We were warmly welcomed and were looked after amazingly well by the staff. They are friendly and attentive. The food was the best we had in Sri Lanka, absolutely delicious. The tour of the estate, village and coconut oil factory were very interesting. The family lodge and swimming pool were fantastic. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

We arrived at Horathapola Estate straight from our flight and the welcome couldn't have been better. The staff are excellent and the rooms large and airy and colonial in style. The food was delicious. I would thoroughly recommend a stay here.

If I could rate higher than a 5, I would. The only thing I regret? Not staying longer.

Staff were incredibly hospitable and knowledgeable- the walk around the plantation grounds was...
