“Unforgettable experience”
Reviewed 27 February 2018 for a stay in January 2018

You don’t stay with a family twice in one month unless there is something truly special one . Laughing and learning about what it is like inside a Sri Lankan home. Dishantis knowledge of food taught me, changed me and opened up another world. Definitely going to see me there a third time.

“A Lovely place to stay”
Reviewed 26 February 2018 for a stay in February 2018

Dushy and Saman’s homestay was recommended to us by friends. It was so nice to arrive after a long journey to find a hospitable friendly, clean, stylish and comfortable place to stay. Dushy and Saman and their daughters were so welcoming, we felt at home very quickly. Dushy’s enthusiasm for Sri Lankan cookery is infectious and I will try to be a good student from her teaching and reproduce the dishes she taught us. I would recommend their home as a lovely peaceful place to chill out in the heart of Kandy city.

“Cooking demonstration”
Reviewed 3 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018

Nivahana guided us through the cooking of a delicious rice and curry with chicken.
Her enthusiastic and instructive way of demonstrating every step in the cooking really made us want to continue when being back in Sweden.

“Fabulous pad”
Reviewed 11 December 2017 for a stay in December 2017

What a lovely surprise to find this welcoming & hospitable homestay in Kandy. The rooms & open spaces are delightful and so tasteful. Every care is taken to ensure a comfortable & fun stay including a fun cookery session & supper. We felt part of the family by the time we left. Thank you Duchy, Saman & girls, & an extra thankyou for sorting us out with last minute transport when the trains went on strike! (PS good luck with the badminton tournament, hope it goes ahead!)
