A very beautiful and relaxing place with very amiable host and people. Would like to thank Samudhra Aunty and Kamil who made our stay very pleasant with their hospitality and stories.

A fantastic hide away house secluded and well away from the madness of Kandy centre. Only a short tuk tuk ride away (complimentary at certain times of day. Our hosts couldn't do enough for us and made us feel at home. Lovely intimate feeling at meal times with other guests. Beautiful garden and pool to cool off in!

Great location, very green and calm but a few kilometres out of town (550 rps from the main railway station). Enjoyable garden and nicely decorated house with a history and nice pool! Sitting area was comfortable and food was nice - although a bit on the pricey side. We loved the room with open air bathroom. Host Bhathiya has great stories of his life most enjoyable to listen to. WiFi restrictions from 7-9 am and pm (during meal times) made further trip planning while eating a little complicated. Thank you for allowing our private yoga teacher to come over! All the best for your family!

Bhathiya's appartement is the best one in my journey. It's so beautiful and elaborately designed. It's faraway from the busy central city ,but it's really quiet and a good place to block the noisy. It's worthy to spend several days here to appreciate the garden and the whole house.

Bhatiya was really great, super responsive in any situation, and the place was really nice. The family's home is also very nice and you can eat on the veranda and use their pool if you'd like. The place is a 30 minute ride away from the Kandy tourist sites but it's nice to be out of the city and the surrounding area is beautiful to walk around.

We loved staying at Bhathiya & Suzie's beautiful homestay, in Nigel's room. It was exactly as it was described in the listing; the bathroom was lush, and the room was really cute and cosy. Suzie's cooking is exceptional; we ordered the Sri Lankan dinner & breakfast and it was superb. The garden is beautiful and very peaceful. Bhathiya was very generous with his time and showed us through the property and recounted its history. Highly recommend.

Thank you for the wonderful stay and great tips you've offered to us during our very short (one-night) stay! We felt really welcome and enjoyed the delish food that was prepared. The environment was very nice and we wished we saw the porcupines you told us about. Some tiny areas for improvement may be: response to Airbnb messages, and bigger water flow for the shower. Thanks again for having us!

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.
