We are so glad we stayed here. Lovely atmosphere, incredible views and food to die for. The young chef and wait staff were incredibly attentive and owners Anthony and Sam made sure we were well looked after. Lovely walks in surrounding tea estates were just enough to develop the appetite required for the next round of feasting. Without doubt the...

Ranagala House was the highlight of our stay. Hidden in the hills an hour from Kandy we relaxed into this country house with a few other guests. Our room was one of only four or five, enjoying wonderful views from its own terrace. We breakfasted and dined on the incredible verandah looking 25 miles or so over misty forest back...

We had a delightful stay at Rangala House! Do budget ample travel time as it is located in the hills about an hours drive from Kandy. The structure is thoughtfully designed and the grounds are lush and intimate, with stunning views from the veranda. I recommend at least 3 full days respite here with full board as there are no...

Our idea was to stay two nights - in the end we stayed four. What a great place. The mountain views: spectacular! Most beautiful sunsets one can imagine. The smell of the nature, the sounds - a sensual experience. Nice studio room, nice pool, lovely garden. Our 5 year old daughter loved it, too. Sam, Anthony and your staff -...

Hello Sam and Anthony. We spent 3 nights here and everything was fabulous. Sam is an excellent host and we liked sitting for dinner with the other guests (optional). Attention to detail everywhere......would suggest comfier chairs on the veranda. Excellent walks around this area close to Knuckles range. Well done.

Three days and nights is not enough time to enjoy and appreciate Rangala House, the surrounding beauty and hospitality. We were warmly welcomed by Anthony, Sam, Benny (the delightful new kitten) and the rest of the fine staff. This splendid house and gardens, with a view to die for, far, far away from home was the perfect place to unwind...

I returned again with two friends on their first visit to Srl Lanka almost directly from the airport. As always the rooms and meals and service were superb and provided the benchmarks by which other places we stayed in were judged. None matched up to Rangala House. The weather was a bit wetter than usual but we still enjoyed one...

We booked one night at Rangala House and loved it so much we stayed for three. Anthony, Sam, Amila and the rest of the staff make you feel at home. Rangala House is not so much a hotel or B&B as a home where all your needs are accounted for. Luxury for the right price. Amazing food, arresting views and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Coming from Kandy , the journey (slightly more than one hour) takes you through Digana, Teldeniya and then left, through Udispattuwa and onto the Duckwari tea estate. At an altitude of just under 1000 metres above sea level, the situation is significantly higher up in the hill country than Kandy (500 metres) and the climate is noticeably cooler and fresher. Rangala House is situated on the edge of the Knuckles Forest Region - now classified as a world heritage site. This area is up-country from Kandy on the North Eastern side. The house faces almost due West on a steep jungly hillside. Spectacular sunsets are common. The view from the verandah is enormous - a 180º panorama from Hantana mountain to the South right round to the Duckwari tea estate and Knuckles Hills to the North and North East. Far down below in the valley, paddy fields give way to further hillsides and, on a clear day, you can even see Bible Rock many miles away. At night the lights of Kandy can be seen twinkling in the far distance. Behind the house, the tea estate rises steeply and is attractively dotted with shade trees and huge igneous boulders - common hill country features. The house is situated on the Teldeniya - Rangala mountain road, about 25 minutes up from Teldeniya. Cars are not often seen, traffic being mainly composed of three wheelers, country buses and estate tractors. The road is mostly in excellent condition up to Rangala House and beyond, but the section through to Corbett’s Gap is impassable to vehicles. ACCOMMODATION There is a large sitting room with double French windows, a stone fireplace and spacious dining area. The LED TV has many satellite channels as well as all the local stations and there is also a DVD player. For music lovers, there is a high quality sound system (classical and jazz CDs available) and a Roland electric piano. Broadband wifi is available in all room and is free of charge. Adjacent to the sitting room there is a western-style kitchen, fully equipped with all mod cons and finished in solid mahogany. Guests are welcome to come and talk to the resident chef - and perhaps pick up some tips on cooking curries Sri Lankan style! ... more   less
