À propos de la Rangala House

Haut perchée, à 1 000 m d’altitude, dans la brume des montagnes, Rangala House surplombe d’immenses plantations de thé et offre des vues à couper le souffle. Rangala House était autrefois le pavillon d’une plantation de thé, en bordure de la forêt des Knuckles, site inscrit sur la liste du patrimoine mondial de l’UNESCO. Les nuits claires, des températures fraîches et la vue à perte d’horizon sur les collines ondulées font de Rangala House un magnifique et paisible refuge.

Le bâtiment principal de la villa abrite trois chambres. Il y en une quatrième dans le bâtiment adjacent, appelé « le studio ». Chacune des trois premières chambres dispose d’un lit double ou de lits jumeaux qui peuvent être rapprochés pour en former un double. Toutes les chambres ont une salle de bains attenante, dont l’eau est chauffée grâce à des panneaux solaires, et l’une d’elles dispose d’une baignoire.

Le studio est un peu à l’écart du bâtiment principal et bénéficie d’un balcon privatif offrant une vue panoramique sur les montagnes. Avec un lit à baldaquin et un autre lit double installé sur une estrade à laquelle on accède avec une échelle, quatre personnes peuvent y dormir.

Rangala House est chaleureuse et accueillante, avec une cheminée en pierre et un salon doté de portes-fenêtres. La véranda est un autre endroit très agréable de la villa, où profiter de l’air frais tout en admirant la vue.

We had 7 continuous days of rain and white-outs, and yet we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Rangala, thanks to the wonderful setting (even when you can't see it), all the staff and Anthony, the perfectly warm and homey and cozy vibe. The setting and the set-up are simply unbeatable. (This was our 5th or 6th year at Rangala, and every year it gets better, is never boring, and is always fantastic!)

We came here on a visit to the knuckles range organized by our hotel. Staff couldn't have been more helpful in organizing a walk we could do that took into account my limited mobility( as I have two artificial knees).we set off on a gloriously fabulous but gentle walk and got caught in one of the very typical short but torrential rain falls. We got back drenched to the skin and were promptly offered towels. .hairdryer etc to dry of. We then had the most fabulous home cooked lunch of pasta with the freshest tomato sauce I have ever tasted, beautiful local salads and freshly baked bread . This place is so beautifully maintained and planted it was an absolute pleasure to visit and I only wish we could have stayed .

We stayed here for 2 nights during a 2 week tour around Sri Lanka. Set in a magical setting overlooking the Knuckles mountain range, this place is extremely special. Small boutique hotel with lots of charm. We did "Charlies walk" from the hotel. A 3 hour walk around the local hills and villages. The views are stunning and the locals are so friendly. Also well worth walking down the road for 10 minutes to the local cloth making factory. A few ladies making cloth on traditional looms. We had so much fun with them. They are happy for you to take photos and let you have a go on the looms. You can also buy their products such as sorongs, table napkins etc. which are lovely authentic souvenirs. This place is also excellent for doing a day trip to Knuckles mountains. It is a bit over priced at USD 40 pp for half a day but that seems to be the going rate. The highlight though must have been the food. The chef there is professionally trained and the food was the best we had on the whole trip. Do not hesitate to choose this place, it is extra special.

Our family of 7 stayed here for 4 nights. The views were truly amazing even if the surrounding hills drifted in and out of clouds while we were there. The staff led by Amila made our stay perfect, nothing was a problem. Sebastian the chef gave us some of the finest breakfasts and dinners we have had and he was able to cater to our youngest children just as well. His 'apprentices' Chalika and Nyuen were SO polite and helpful. We hiked the 3 hr trek and were rewarded with stunning views throughout the local tea plantations.....if you stay here you should try this walk, it is a bit taxing but we'll worth it. Also, if you are up for a bit of rock scrambling get the boys to take you down to the local river where you trek into hills to find a beautiful river/waterfall. Our kids thought this was amazing. All in all this was a perfect spot to rest and unwind on our trip through Sri Lanka. One hint if you are just looking for a simple lunch, the shops across from e Ducktari Tea Factory make great snacks.

Situated about an hour out of Kandy, this is an alternative to the day-long trip to Newara Elia to see tea plantations and enjoy some mountain air. It is an old house that has been converted to a small hotel with fairly basic rooms, but an astonishingly beautiful outlook. They provide lunch on request (need to book ahead to ensure there is space) and what we had was superb - a large and very tasty quiche, plus several dishes of vegetables and salad (enough to feed several people) plus a delightful ice cream and rhubarb dish for desert and coffee, all for about AUD20 per head. We would have paid that for the view alone, sitting on the broad terrace looking out over the expansive valley in the cool of the shaded verandah.

We stayed at Rangala for two nights and loved it. Our room was simple but very comfortable, and opened onto the wonderful deck with views forever. Sam and his staff were friendly, very natural and eager to help at all times. A delight. The recommended walks through the tea plantations were excellent, the best we had in Sri Lanka. We will remember them for a long time. Eating on the deck with the other guests was very enjoyable. Sebastian's food was top-class, with the wild boar casserole a highlight of my husband's trip. A great escape among the tea plantations, and great value for money. We would love to go back.

My two friends and I spent two nights here and enjoyed every moment. We shared one room and found the bedroom spacious and very comfortable. Everything about our stay was perfect. We had spent the previous two weeks travelling round Sri Lanka so wanted some peace, quiet and comfort before we flew back to Ireland and Rangala House provided all of these in spades. The location is spectacular and the view from the veranda just amazing. The house has been beautifully restored with great taste shown in every aspect of the decor ( there are well-stocked bookshelves as well). The final cherry on the cake was the swimming pool where we were able to cool down after our walks. The garden is a delight as well - beautifully maintained and carefully planted and full of bird life! Walking through the tea estates was one of the highlights of our stay here and Sam gave us great printed directions which made getting lost impossible, We liked to get up really early and go for a walk ranging from 1 1/2 to 3 hours before it got too hot - then we would come back to a gorgeous breakfast on the veranda. We spotted some very unusual birds on these walks - but had to keep an eye out for leeches in the long grass! No mosquitoes though at this altitude. Sam and his staff were courteous, charming and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The cook in particular was first class and we enjoyed all of our delicious meals eaten on the veranda. All in all, Rangala House was everything we had hoped it would be and I just hope some day I can go back and sample its delights all over again!

We spent 2 nights here. Unbelievable views form the verandah. Anthony, the owner was always interested in us and gave great advice on where to walk and what to see. Did 2 great walks into the tea plantations which were almost our SL highlight. My only gripe is that this was the only place in SL where we didn't get a Queen bed but 2 singles pushed together. Even in other Asian hotels we quite often get the two beds pushed together but at least they give us Queen sheets over the top. At Rangala the beds were even made up as singles. For the money we are paying I think they could perhaps have King sheets to go over the top. A small hassle but other places manage to get it right. Sebastian and Charlie were fantastic in the kitchen.
