Homestay of a Horticulture Artist


Hi, I am Chitranganie or Amma (which means 'mother'), and I live just outside Kandy (very easily reachable by tuk-tuk, though). One of my passions is horticulture, so my house and garden are full of plants. I also love cooking and am happy to teach you some truly authentic Sri Lankan recipes while here.

My house has two bedrooms with one bedroom featuring a double bed and another with two single beds. The rooms are basic but clean.

I can prepare you a variety of Sri Lankan food for breakfast, lunch and/or dinner and am happy to assist you in planning your trip in and around Kandy.

Wow, where do I start... I booked one night and stayed for too many to count, over several visits. If you're looking for more of an authentic cultural experience, this is the place. Meeting Amma and her family were honestly the highlights of my trip. They welcomed me into their home and ensured I was comfortable, happy, and well-fed the entire stay. Amma has a beautiful garden which adds so much charm to the property. The room was huge and close to the bathroom, both were spotless. The food was 11/10, everything was fresh and cooked with love and I enjoyed having casual cooking lessons.


What an amazing place to stay! Amma's homestay is absolutely lovely. The house is beautiful, her home is very clean and her urban garden is just incredible. I wanted to stay only 1 night and ended up staying 5 and I already have plans to come back here. She makes you feel at home immediately. She taught me how to make some great Sri Lankan food. She can keep up with all Sri Lankan restaurants I can tell. We even used dried vanilla and chili from her own garden. Can't recommend her place enough!
