Very comfortable room and great sri lankan food. Was a perfect and relaxing start for us. Pathi has great recommendations and also organized for example a great safari in yala. The road to the house is difficult, Google Maps routed our driver over various bumpy passages. You should let him call the hotel to pick the right one (the route...

This was the best guesthouse we stayed at during our two weeks in Sri Lanka. We had a triple room with a very spacious bathroom with hot water. A huge balcony was right off our room and there are also common areas where you can sit comfortably. The wifi connection was great. The family who runs the guesthouse is very...

Without doubt the perfect place to stay in Kandy. I stayed here for 2 nights, my only regret was that I was not able to spend more time with Pathi as well as enjoy more meals that were prepared by his wife in her kitchen! Brilliant rooms, the location faces the hills and greens (I even spotted deers in the...

We had an amazing time at Hanthana House! Pathi and his family made our stay just perfect. From the moment we arrived we were treated like friends. The food was super awesome and the best we had in Sri Lanka. The room was perfectly cleaned and comes with AC and a mosquito net. Pathi supported us with many local insider...

My husband liked this one very much. The hosts were friendly and kind. Got us some tea and crackers on their balcony. Had a whole area to ourselves including a living room and bedroom. Unfortunately the hosts weren't able to make us a dinner but we headed to the White House in central Kandy and had a delicious dinner. Kandy...

We stayed here one night and found Hanthana House to be such a beautiful and tranquil stay, we wished we had more time in Kandy to remain here. The home is large, with modern architecture. Large windows, floor to ceiling, illuminate all spaces. Wooden furniture is the principal decor of this house, combining vintage chairs with modern. Our room was...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hanthana House is a boutique type accommodation which offers a comfortable stay in an attractive surroundings with added benefit of tasty and Srilankan Cooking which you can learn to prepare yourself!. Hanthana House consists of two en suite double bedrooms and one en suite twin bedroom and one en suite triple room, all with generous balconies overlooking the neighbouring tea estate. The bedrooms have ceiling fans, teak furniture and polished cement floors as well as a wet room with shower, basin and WC. The newly-built spacious and light dining room also has views of the tea estate and it is open to the generous new kitchen, where cookery lessons are always available! The upstairs sitting area has a comfy sofa and armchairs as well as a piano and Wi-Fi access! An organic kitchen garden is planned which will provide most of the vegetables for meals, and various walks through tea plantations and up to local viewpoints are accessed from the front door. Hanthana House is approximately 4 km from Kandy in the Hanthana hills, an area famous for cultivating some of the first tea grown on the island and the location of the Ceylon Tea Museum. Please be aware that a homestay is neither a hotel nor a guesthouse as you live and socialise with a family in their home. Think of it as an extension of your own home, with the usual creature comforts and no-one to make your bed or clean your room on a daily basis! The real experience is the interaction with a Sri Lankan family as they go about their daily life. ... more   less
