    Lovely guesthouse with jungle views

    We had a lovely stay at Hathana House. The rooms are very spacious & the views are great. It’s not walking distance from Kandy, however it’s not far & about $2 CDN in a tuktuk to the town. The hosts made a delicious curry for dinner and provided a great breakfast in the morning!

    The Perfect Stay

    It was the perfect place to start my trip in Sri Lanka. The place is clean and rooms are spacious with a well functioning AC. The food they serve is great, home cooked meal feeling. As this was my first stay in Sri Lanka, they help me organized better my trip, and went out of his way to help me get a window seat at the train from Nuwara Eliya to Ella and this was priceless.

    I had a wonderfully relaxing stay at Hanthana House. Nestled in the hills, each room has a great view of the surrounding greenery. The host was welcoming from the minute I arrived. The home cook dinner was one of the best meals I had in Sri Lanka. The host also helped arranged for a driver and guide to Dambulla and Sigiriya. My guide, Ayesh, was super knowledgable, extremely patient, and a safe driver.

    Lot of room for improvement

    Our overall experience was mediocre. If not for the service of two employees, it could have been worse. The owner was interested in our ranking more than the service they provided. There was bed linen hanging outside our room to dry. The bathroom is sub par, and there were cockroaches in the cupboard. When told about the spiders, he did not seem to care much about it. However my ranking of the facility was purely because of the exemplary service provided by the kitchen and service staff, Kusuma and Nuwan respectively. They were exceptional. Overall this facility has a lot of room for improvement to reach the level a hotel or even a home stay.

    Friendly hosts and yummy meals! Small room but had everything we needed. No tea and coffee making stuff but the hosts happy to provide! Very long windy drive to get there and the view was ok but not amazing! Would stay somewhere closer to town next time!!

    Schöne Unterkunft in ruhiger Lage!

    Das Hanthana House ist ein wenig vom Stadtzentrum entfernt auf einem Hügel gelegen. Die Lage ist optimal, da die Stadt sehr laut ist. Mit dem Tuktuk kommt man aber schnell ins Zentrum. Die Zimmer sind schön, gepflegt und sauber. Wir hatten ein Zimmer mit Aussicht auf die Hügellandschaft, was sehr schön war. Das Essen zubereitet von den Gastgebern war fantastisch, es gab auch immer ein reichhaltiges Frühstück. Die Unterkunft ist für den Preis unschlagbar!

    Amazing Hous in the Mountains

    This modern accommodation is reachable via a 15 min TukTuk - Ride from Kandy Center (~300-400 Rupee). When we arrived we were welcomed by the super nice host and his wife with a fruit drink and a sandwich. What makes this place truly special is not only the amazing view but the Homestay experience. The owner gave us a free upgrade, tips for the city and ordered us a very good TukTuk - driver (400 Rupee) to the city. Besides the great complimentary breakfast, there‘s also the option for a typical Sri Lankian dinner (7$, quite pricey but definitely worth it!). The dining room is next to the kitchen, so we could have a nice talk with the owner‘s wife who is the chef. The room is clean, has mosquitoes nets and is very comfortable. Furthermore, the private bathroom is modern and hygienic. Additionally the balcony is very nice. Extra Tip: Next to the house is a beautiful view point reachable in a 20 min. walk from the house. Ask the helpful owner about it, it’s an amazing point to look at the sunset (Don’t forget your flashlights for the way back though..) We would definitely recommend this accommodation and want to say thank you for an unforgettable stay!

    Endroit très agréable au calme

    Une très belle maison située dans un environnement calme. Un accueil chaleureux par les hôtes. La maîtresse de maison prépare une cuisine familiale typique très bonne que ce soit pour le petit déjeuner ou le dîner. La chambre très propre donnait sur une grande terrasse avec vue sur la nature. L’emplacement nécessite un moyen de transport pour visiter Kandy.
