“Cooking demonstration”
Reviewed 3 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018

Nivahana guided us through the cooking of a delicious rice and curry with chicken.
Her enthusiastic and instructive way of demonstrating every step in the cooking really made us want to continue when being back in Sweden.

“Fabulous pad”
Reviewed 11 December 2017 for a stay in December 2017

What a lovely surprise to find this welcoming & hospitable homestay in Kandy. The rooms & open spaces are delightful and so tasteful. Every care is taken to ensure a comfortable & fun stay including a fun cookery session & supper. We felt part of the family by the time we left. Thank you Duchy, Saman & girls, & an extra thankyou for sorting us out with last minute transport when the trains went on strike! (PS good luck with the badminton tournament, hope it goes ahead!)

“Perfect, Welcoming, Friendly & Fun”
Reviewed 25 November 2017 for a stay in November 2017

From the moment we arrived at this amazing home stay in Kandy, we were treated as family. Dushanti, Saman and their two girls were the perfect hosts, who ensured at every possible moment that we had a fabulous stay in their beautiful, spacious and clean home.
We were a group of 2 couples visiting Sri Lanka and Dushanti and Saman welcomed us to their home and made sure at every moment we fed, satifisfied and well-looked after. Dushys food is truly amazing, and on our second night of the stay she even taught us how to cook a traditional Sri Lankan meal, whilst the boys sat on the roof terrace and drank as friends.
We couldn’t recommend their home stay enough, we will stay in touch, and next time we are in Kandy we will definitely stay at Nivahana! Thank you Dushy & Saman did make our trip memorable! We will miss you!

“A Perfect Start To An Amazing Trip!”
Reviewed 25 November 2017 for a stay in November 2017

When we arrived at Colombo airport, we were driven straight to Nihavana Homestay and didn't get in until about 1am. Since it was so late, I didn't expect the house to be lively but upon arrival we were greeted with the warmest welcome from Saman, Dushanti and their two kids. They even prepared us a delicious snack, which was so needed after a 2 hour drive :) Not only is the house very, very beautiful but also spacious, comfortable and immediately felt like home. We unfortunately only stayed two nights and at the end, wished we had more time there. In our short time, the girls were able to squeeze in an amazing cooking lesson from Dushy and learned her talented cooking ways! She was previously a trained chef which is why all the food is soo delicious and also a jeweler/designer with a beautiful collection that I couldn't resist to buy a beautiful blue sapphire piece. We left with such a memorable experience and will never forget the great chats, cooking, the food <3, and our new friends which we will definitely come back to visit! I highly recommend anyone and everyone to stay here if you like to be well taken care of and want to be treated like family.
