We booked for 4 days with a hope of a chill out and relax. We found the room to be dark and damp, we had to wash all our clothes after we left because it was all damp. There was building works ongoing so we asked to change our booking from 4 nights to 3. This reasonable request was refused....

The location is simply awesome. The owners are really charming and the other guests were lovely. Three very entertaining nights and whilst the weather was not excellent we had a great views on Liptons seat. Lots to do around the area .. shame we had a lot of rain.

This place is really special, amazing view and tea everywhere. It's on the way to the tea factory and Lipton's seat but tucked away from the road so its all on its own. So very easy to hike or jump a bus to wherever you want to go. The Dias family are so nice....really funny, and know the area so...

We stayed for a couple of nights to climb Liptons seat and see the area. The guesthouse is very nice and clean. The rooms are modern and reasonably priced.

The people, food and an audacious situation 1000m up above the clouds and facing the distant ocean and rising sun in the morning make this a rare gem. Family run and they take a pride in what they are offering. Interesting wildlife. Chilly at night.

This place is a must stay! The location has been our favourite of Sri Lanka. The accomodation is run by a really lovely family. The rooms are good and all you really need, because it's what's outside that makes this stay amazing. Set in the hills Hapatule, you are surrounded by amazing views and gorgeous tea plantations. Perfect for walks,...

This was one of the highlights of our trip to Sri Lanka, despite the rain. The views are breathtaking, including sunrise if you're up early. The rice and curry includes local ingredients like bread fruit, banana leaves, and taro, which were all well prepared. The rooms are very basic, but sufficient. You can ask for another blanket. They give good...

Travelling in Sri Lanka for two months and this was the highlight of our trip. The location is incredible and the family who run White Monkey are so beautiful and welcoming and go above and beyond to ensure you enjoy your stay! We originally only booked one night here and in no way was that enough time to spend here!

We spent two days at white monkey.their hospitality is very good even though the room facilities are basic we did not feel that because when we looking at the view from the room in morning we felt like we are in the flight.Also they have homemade delicious foods.I recommend this place for nature lovers.
