    Our opinion

    A wonderful, boutique residence that boasts truly stunning vistas over Sri Lankan hill country.

    Hotel description

    Amid panoramic natural scenery, Rangala House is a secluded hill country residence offering boutique accommodation to the north-east of Kandy. The building is a timber-framed bungalow perched on a hillside on the edge of the Knuckles Mountain Range, which is a UNESCO protected area of outstanding natural beauty. The architecture is reminiscent of a mountain lodge, and its colonial style is nestled in an overgrowth of unspoilt natural gardens, which harbour a fascinating array of native plant and wildlife. In the midst is a leisurely outdoor swimming pool and terrace, while a 50ft veranda at the front of the building promises expansive, westward facing views. Interiors are warm, welcoming and homely to create the environment of a private home so that guests can relax and enjoy the simple pleasures of countryside life. Cosy sofas are organised in a sociable living/dining area warmed by a log fire to engineer an environment ripe for communal living. Whether you book Rangala House exclusively or by individual rooms, the property comes fully-staffed, with Chef Sebastian on hand to prepare evening feasts of Sri Lankan and international dishes. Ingredients are locally-sourced and some come straight from the hotel’s own vegetable garden. A boutique guest house, Rangala House has a mere three double bedrooms on offer, with a Studio Suite just set apart for those seeking additional privacy. Each is simply, yet comfortably, furnished and views vary, with some boasting a panoramic outlook over the idyllic landscape. The only guest house in the region, Rangala House a back-to-nature experience of Sri Lanka’s hill country; pastimes include nature walks, bird watching and observing tea-plucking practices in the terraced plantations.
