Bhathiya Suzy were the perfect hosts. The food was absolutely amazing along with the hospitality. Bhathiya and Suzy could not do more in making us feel at home and to...

Great place to stay, just outside Kandy. Beautiful home and lovely owners. We enjoyed a great dinner in the garden, some candlelight and tranquillity ; wonderful ! Mr. Ratwatte, the owner, took the time to talk with us extensively, we really felt welcome! If you go to Kandy, go to this guesthouse !

The Kandyan Manor was so lovely and authentic and Bhathiya and Suzy were such great hosts it would be difficult to find better hosts in Sri Lanka. We looked forward to returning to the Kandyan Manor each day it truly felt like home. Suzy's homecooked meals were the best we had in Sri Lanka. The hosts really made our stay...

We couldn't have had a better experience than when we did staying at the Kandyan Manor. Bhathiya, Suzy and all of the family welcomed us into their home and catered to our needs with generosity from the moment we arrived. We would recommend this booking to anyone visiting Kandy. We were helped with generations of local knowledge and also got...

We stayed at the Kandyan Manor for 3 days at the beginning of the Esala Perahera (the largest festival in Asia). Despite struggling to find the place initially we were extremely grateful that it was about 4 km away from Kandy as it felt like we could escape the mad streets and crowds and return to our beautiful green guesthouse....

What an absolute pleasure it was to stay at Kandyan Manor. The location, accommodation, dining and service are impeccable. What you get at Kandyan Manor can not be bought, personal touches, friendly accommodating hosts and relaxation. Thank you for restful undisturbed time. Our children felt very at home and enjoyed the hospitality shown. Highly recommended.

Stayed here for three nights and it was wonderful. Just far enough away from Kandy to not here the noise, but only about 400rp to get into town, just don't expect it to be walking distance. Suzie and Bhatia are great hosts and will call a tuk tuk and organise where they need to take you. Suzie is an amazing...

“If you want more privacy you can ask for one of the rooms next to 'the big house', because the family uses the big house also.”

“The bedrooms in the main house are much larger than the cabins, but not quite as private, so it depends on your priorities.”
