Suzy and Bhathia are great hosts! They were absolutely lovely and gave us great advises/tips for our trip. They even invited us to attend a private puja - which was a truly exceptional experience. The house is very cosy and tasteful with a beautiful garden and a nice view. Thank you, again!

Born and raised in an aristocratic Kandyan Family, I, Bhathi, my wife Suzy and three children, Nigel, Damien and Ishika, are now managing The Kandyan Manor located in the hills in the Central region of Sri Lanka.
Having lived overseas, in Mauritius for 7 years, after our return to our beautiful paradise island, we decided to covert our property in to a Home Stay unit and named it Kandyan Manor in February 2011.
We are a friendly family with warm hearts, extending our personalized services to our guests, to give them the best relaxed holiday.
Our doors are open to you with warm hearts and we invite you to a truly Kandyan Experience at the Kandyan Manor.
