Don’t just take our word for it… here’s what our past guests have had to say…

We were privileged to be the first guests to stay in the newly built separate bungalow situated just below the main house. The place has fantastic views over the Knuckles range with beautiful trees, birds, nature in the foreground. We awoke to the sound of birdsong every morning. The bungalow has its own pool for cooling off so you can be as private as you wish. Alternatively you can join other guests up on the terrace of the main house which overlooks the other pool. There are wonderful views everywhere.

Strathisla sits amongst tea & spice plantations and it is a must to take a walk around with JKo who will point out the various spices and fruits to you. You will also pass a few smiley locals along the way….everyone is very friendly.

Great location for… Matale town center, tea estate visits, mini worlds end and temples.
We had a cooking lesson with Priya and “estate tour” with Jeyakumar – both really good experiences.
Jeyakumar and his wife, and the staff were brilliant. Peter and his wife also very welcoming.
Nice relaxing atmosphere with light music being played, the house has lots of character.
Look forward to our next stay with them!

My partner and I booked a 12-day holiday in Sri Lanka, and Strathisla was one of the best place we stayed. We were there for only 3 nights, and it was so relaxing that we wished we had booked for longer. We didn’t have quite as much time around the pool as I would have liked.
The guest house (an old tea plantation estate house) is located in a quiet rural area amongst absolutely amazing scenery – lush tropical forest, a spice garden, and the tea plantation. Our room, with its high ceiling, timber floor, and elegant furnishings, was a beautiful balance of modern amenity with colonial past.The food was exemplary, as was the service. All in all, it was exceptional value for money.
Thank you Peter, Mozelle, Jkumar, Priya, Muthi, and Prassad.
