The hosts are very friendly and the view and the breakfast is fantastic! It is just a little far from the town but tuk tuks are very reasonably priced in Kandy.

The View!”
We loved Haven Upon Hills! Staying with this family felt like staying with friends. Very hospitable, welcoming, and accommodating. I was a bit worried about being so far out of the city center, but the view and peace and quiet in this place were fantastic. If you're looking to relax, then this is the place for you. Having breakfast on the balcony in the mornings was my favorite part of the day!

Perfection”
We booked a homestay as we had used One in Thailand. But this was a real "home" ran by such an accommodating family of four. We sat at their table, eating beautiful home cooked delicacy, while their son was being tutored in the room next door, conversation was great we felt so welcome that now I would class this family as friends. The views were out of this world, the highest accommodation in the hills of Kandy, the vast wooden varanda remained cool throughout the day. We could watch the sunset from the comfort of our bed, the room had floor to ceilings windows and so much space. Eating breakfast on the the varanda was a wonderful way to start the day. The tuk tuk driver they used was reliable and friendly. If you choose to walk down the long winding hill, you will get the opportunity to see cows, monkeys and stop for a traditional king coconut drink. It's so tranquil compared to the craziness and crows of Kandy, take time to relax and absorb views it's a phenomenal place.

Just like home”
My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. It was great. The owners are super friendly and make for great conversation. We learned a lot about Sri Lanka that night. Also, the food is freakin' fantastic. Authentic Sri-Lankan cuisine!! extremely exquisite. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. On the minus side, it is a bit outside of Kandy and can be a bit confusing to reach, if the driver doesn't know the area. However, the view from the terrasse is unbelievable.

Great view but ....”
We booked because of the view and were not disappointed. However, the cleanliness left a lot to be desired. The bathroom was grubby, the mirror was dirty and the floor mats were dirty. The polyester sheets were rather interesting and the hair dryer was shared with the other guests and the family. Don't think we would stay here again.

Lovely place, lovely people and the most amazing view ”
It was lovely to stay at haven upon hills, definitely the best bit about staying in Kandy. Amazing views, and the family are very accommodating and lovely to have a chat with over some tea. We will definitely be back next time! Note that you have to get a tuck tuck from Kandy as the property is high up on a hill (about 10 minutes,400 Rps) and we walked down one day which was a lovely little walk into Kandy. Thank you for having us and see you next time!

The family are lovely, I had been throwing up on the route to haven upon hill and they couldn't have looked after us enough. The location was stunning with views over kandy. People have complained about it being too far out but you would pay a lot more for a place like this per night if it were closer. Would definitely go again

It's a homestay not a hotel”
View/house is beautiful. When we went the owner had just had a heart attack + wife was feeling sick + hotel help was on holiday. Overall it was a nice house, but they really didn't help us get the most out of tourism/planning activities.

We much enjoyed our stay and especial black tea and breakfast tastes good. Our room has such a big balcony as an open air dinning room. They cannot cook dinner for us, but provide taken-away food from Kandy town.

The hidden gem that makes the holiday!”
The owners only opened their house for guests last year, but how great it is they did! The house is located about 7 minutes away from Kandy, and it's the highest house on that mountain. The view is something special: so beautiful it's difficult to take it all in. We watched sunsets and woke up for the sunrise. Its quiet, its inspiring, its like being in a painting. Both rooms also have access directly to the terrace, so thats basically where you spend your time. The owners are super friendly, and they go out of their way to make your stay flawless. Testament to that is the breakfast: in many hotels in Sri Lanka we were dissapointed with the standard egg and toast. Not here: waffles, eggs, cake, fruits, tea... it was awesome. And did I mention you eat that on the terrace, watching the view, in a breeze? We hope we can stay here again one day, and even more: if we ever go back to Sri Lanka, it would be partly inspired by the promise of staying here once more.
