Rangala House is on the edge of the Knuckles Mountains about 75mins drive from Kandy- being a bit higher than Kandy, it feels a little cooler. Formerly a tea planters bungalow, it has been beautifully converted into a small boutique hotel. There is a large comfortable lounge but the piece de resistance is the amazing 50ft verandah where there are exquisite views of the mountains, paddyfields and tea plantations – most people decide to have their meals here, to take in these views. Down below, in the stunning terraced gardens, is a fantastic pool which also enjoys these views. Would certainly recommend a minimum of a 2 night stay to take in the beautiful scenery and enjoy the fantastic hospitality here.
AT A GLANCE:
- Standard: Small boutique hotel - high
- Rooms: 3 in Main house and 1 in Studio (can sleep up to 4 but 2 beds on mezzanine floor via a loft ladder so not suitable for the very young or elderly)
