Rangala House

Overview

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. 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.

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!

  • The First Bedroom - has large bay windows looking out across the mountain view and also French windows leading on to the verandah.
  • The Second Bedroom - (‘The Garden Room’) has its own small terrace and shady garden. It is slightly away from the main verandah but still near to the First Bedroom. Families with children often like to take these two rooms together.
  • The Third Bedroom - also has access directly to the verandah via French windows. Normally twin/double, this room can be converted to a triple by the addition of an extra bed, as required.
  • The Studio - is a larger room, slightly separated from the main villa, with its own private balcony affording spectacular mountain views. There is sleeping accommodation for a maximum of 4, comprising a four-poster double bed plus a further double bed (or two singles) on a raised gallery, accessible via a loft ladder.
