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...

We had a pleasant stay at Hanthana House. The room is clean, tidy. There is a small balcony, but the view is quite bare, with little flower, overlooking a construction site (they are building a new house?) The house is in Hanthana area, a bit off Kandy. A tuk tuk drive from Kandy to Hanthana House costs around 500 -...

Was abit worried with the whole "Guest House" concept, but it turned out to make my whole holiday. Super clean, and large rooms with all the privacy you need. Tucked away on the mountain, you really feel at peace, and he is more than happy to drive you into town or organize transport when required. Great place to meet interesting...

I have to say SORRY to the boss as I were so late to write a review of them. We were there in May, 2015, the boss and his family were all very nice and kind. Hanthana House was in a quite area, about 10 mins drive from town. The location is perfect as Kandy town was way too busy....

This is a pretty tricky spot to find so make sure you have their phone number with you so your driver can ring them when, not if :), they get lost. The home cooked meals were lovely and the owner was very helpful in sorting out our rearranged travel plans.

Lovely big clean rooms. The house is in a quiet location away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre. The key difference between Hathana House and other accommodation in Sri Lanka is the family and staff, they go out of their way to make you feel like a guest in their home. Mr Patti helped arrange a driver...

Me and my husband stayed for 5 nights at Hanthana house for our honeymoon. The location of the house is very quite with amazing surrounding nature, and it's only 10 minutes far from the city center by Tuk Tuk. The owners of the house are very kind with great hospitality, they helped us planning our trips and gave us very...

This is a small oasis outside of the crowded and noisy Kandy. Lovely furnished rooms in a high class house! Patti and his family are very friendly and try to make your stay as comfortable as possible - in my case they took into consideration that I am not eating wheat when preparing the breakfast.

This place is a must. Up on the hill outside the centre the Hathana House is a Sanctuary. The house is stunning. Rooms to perfection, well designed, immaculate, and comfortable with great balcony views. The food was delicious! You cant get nicer staff! We felt so welcomed. Not only was the stay amazing we pretty much got our whole trip...

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
