Awesome place to stay in Kandy! The owner and family make you feel really welcome. The home cooked Sri Lankan food is delicious and they even dropped me off to the train station. The rooms are super comfy and bathrooms very modern with hot water and polished cement. Loved the balcony outside my room and the peaceful view of the...

Kandy was our first stop on a 18 night trip around Sri Lanka and Hanthana House was a wonderful base for our 3 nights in Kandy. Pathi was very attentive, helping us plan our days out/ organising a FANTASTIC driver!! Hanthana house was extremely well kept. Probably the biggest room we had during our entire trip, with a very large...

Hanthana House was one of the favourite places that I stayed in my two weeks in Sri Lanka. As a solo traveller, it is lovely to stay somewhere where the host makes you feel very welcome, from a free ride in his car to the botanic gardens, to the delicious home cooked meals (possibly the best I had in Sri...

Simple, immaculate rooms. Lots of polished concrete, great design, lovely lines. Lovely family who will make you a fantastic curry right in their kitchen. The tranquility of this place is sublime. Bird song, peace and beautiful views. Probably not everyone's cup of tea but personally I can't fault it. Exactly how a good guest house should be.

On arrival we received a warm welcome from the owner Pathi and his wife.We had a lovely room with a balcony with beautiful views of the hills and the local bird life. The food was excellent. The hostess prepared me the most delicious soup when my stomach needed a bit of a rest from Sri Lankan food. Very kind people...

The hospitality of the owner and his wife at Hanthana House were outstanding. Firstly, all of the meals were delicious and the hostess explained to us how they were cooked and prepared. We had problems obtaining train tickets to Ella but the owner went out of his way to ensure that we had train tickets and a driver for part...

While the Hanthana House is quite hard to locate especially if you are driving yourself as we were, and I suspect with a driver as well, the folks there could not have been nicer. If you find yourself lost, all you need to do is call them and they will direct your driver to their location or in our case,...

After a horrible trip of 40 hours and a driver who could not find hanthana house, we were so happy to arrive. Our host was really the best host we had in sri lanka. He phoned with our driver and told him where to drive (after we have driven around in the mountains for 2 hours without a plan..). It...

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
