Located in Kandy Sri Lanka. Most visited location in Sri Lanka. Hantane mountain range as the backdrop, surrounded with stunning mountains . Privately owned bungalow with 3 private rooms and a caretaker.This More bungalow features secluded environment for families and friends to appreciate the beauty and culture of Kandy, nature, wildlife and breathtaking mountain views in Hantane. 3.5 KM to Kandy City or 15 minutes in tuk tuk taxi (Rs 250). It has 3 bedrooms (with attached bathrooms). A quiet retreat with plenty of light and great experiences to nearby nature. Can occupy up to 6 adults with few kids accompanying them or separate rooms. The house will have a caretaker / cook. He is a great cook specially Sri Lankan food. He will look after you in your daily needs. He is with me for the last 7 years and guests really enjoy his food. In addition i am available for any support. The Bungalow is also within very close proximity to tea plantations, water streams, diversified flora and fauna. Less
