This guest house is somewhere that you simply have to book, it’s location gives you excellent views.

The house itself is immaculate and beautifully designed, we had a fantastic room with a balcony, a kin to any top quality hotel, with a view of the jungle outside!

The best thing about the place is the family who ran it, so attentive and helpful. The food was excellent, real traditional Sri Lankan home cooking. The ethos of place is to allow you to relax, that’s the mantra of the family and it was a magical place to stay.

The only regret is that we only stayed for one night.

The gentleman who ran the guesthouse was very knowledgable about the country and gave us some advice that improved our holiday no end.

Great place.

The Hanthana House is a very nice place. It is about 10 min. by Tuk-Tuk to Kandy city. This short trip costs about 300rp. The people there are very friendly and helpful. The room is clean and tidy. There is a hair dryer, a Soap, an adapter and hot water available. The bed is very comfortable. The view from the Balcony is absolutely amazing. The ladies, who worked in the kitchen prepared delicious breakfast and dinner. They support you in your plans and give you good tips. eg. a daytrip to Sirigiya. Overall, we can recommend this place for everyone. Regardless of whether you are traveling alone, as a couple, or with Family.

One tip: The Hanthana House books for you the train tickets, if you plan to travel from Kandy to Ella by Train. The tickets need to be booked min. 1-2 weeks in advance. Otherwise you don´t get a reservation.

We stayed at Hanthana House for 2 nights whilst visiting Kandy and seeing the Perahera. It is a short distance from the centre but offers a lovely tranquil place to stay. Pathi and his family are very welcoming and helpful, the accommodation is luxurious and the food is excellent. I would thoroughly recommend it.

We stayed at Hanthana house early Sept. The owner , Patti, organised transport for us from Colombo. On arrival he gave us a free room upgrade . The house is situated in the hills above Kandy. The view from our balcony was stunning and the bird song tremendous, it felt like we were in the rainforest. Paths and his family were very welcoming, we ate traditional Sri Lankan food which was delicious, although they were happy to make alternatives. Pathi organised a car and driver for us to visit Kandy. The prices for all the extras were very fair and honestly billed and itemised on departure. A very pleasant stay.

Stayed: September 2017

Prathi and his family were welcoming, warm and friendly. The room was excellent, bed comfortable and the food was the best I've had so far in Sri Lanka. My only regret is that we didn't stay fit longer as he suggested cooking lessons and hill walking as activities that we didn't have time for.
