I stayed at Kandyan Manor with a friend for 2 nights. Very responsive and always available (email and phone), helpful in organizing and planning our days in Kandy even before we arrived and despite they were spending New Year's with their newly born grandson. They organized the pick-up from the bus station and a knowledgable driver to Sigiriya and onwards. We were welcomed by the caretaker and met the family on the second night. We received a very warm welcome and felt like home. They rook care of all our needs. I would definitely stay here again and recommend to my friends. The mansion is a fantastic escape from the noise and bustle of the city but be prepared to spend appr. SR 400 for a tuktuk into the city centre (worth it). They have a very good tuktuk driver available to drive you around and pick you up whereever you are. Rooms are spacious, quiet, clean and very cozy (old heritage building). The dinner was a delicious home-cooked meal we did not find anywhere else in SL. We enjoyed dinner and breakfast on the terrace overlooking the lush (URL HIDDEN) invites you to spend a few more days just to relax. We enjoyed our time at the Manor and with the family and would have liked to stay longer.

We stayed at Bhathiya and Suzy's house for 2 nights. It was a very nice experience. Their manor is a bit far away from the city but you can still travel back and forth in a tuk-tuk for a reasonable price. A perfect location for chill-out and hide-away from the dust and car-fume in Kandy city. Bhathiya and Suzy are very nice and warm to me and my girlfriend. We counted down in their house with their friends and other guests also. It was really unforgettable. The stars in the sky and the fireflies in their garden were just beautiful.

Kandyan Manor was the perfect place to stay in Kandy. A bit away from the noise of the city, the manor provided a comfortable, quiet, and serene place to unwind. It was a bit tricky to find the first time, however. The room we booked was not the room we were given, which was a let down but something acceptable was provided. Everyone was very hospitable and helpful. I highly recommend staying.

I booked the orange room but on arrival we were offered the chalet which is not listed on airbnb. On any other occasion I would be really disappointed but Bathiya and Suzy are super helpful and are great hosts and their hospitality is unmatched! We ended up staying only for a night instead of two because of the bad weather but it was an enjoyable stay. Couple of pointers to keep in mind before booking this property: - They have super friendly dogs, but if you're uncomfortable with dogs this property isn't recommended. - Check on the meal timings because we missed out on breakfast as we were unaware of the timings. - Its a little far from Kandy, so be prepared to shell out 400Rs everytime you want to head into town - Check with the hosts about the weather conditions before you decide to travel. We were caught midst bad rain and train cancellations. Just to relax and enjoy nature at its best- this property is highly recommended. They also conduct cooking classes and walking tours which is the added bonus. Overall loved the place and will definitely go back :)

Etwas außerhalb von Kandy liegt diese kleine, ruhige Oase mit viel Flair und sehr freundlichen Gastgebern. Wir hatten sehr schöne Tage im Kandyan Manor. Der Besitzer bot uns an in einem kleinen seperaten Haus zu schlafen, damit wir ungestört sind. Wir hatten ein wunderschönes, gemütliches Zimmer mit offenem Bad und einem tollen Blick in den schönen Garten. Wir kommen gerne wieder...

Bhathiya User ProfileBhathiya is a superhost.

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.
