Sesatha Hotel

Guesthouse in Matale

An elegant, modern place with rice-field views from the balconies of the five rooms, Sesatha has delightful gardens, dotted with palm trees and overlooked by restaurant tables. The catch (and it's potentially a big one) is that it's also a popular wedding venue, so time your visit wrong and you'll end up centre stage in a no-holds-barred Bollywood-style extravaganza.

Sesatha is 1.5km south of town, about 200m off the main road, and easily missed.
