anxious about the place given that it was new with just one review on booking.com. Once we reached, the owner, Mr. Chaminda, personally came and picked us up. This on top of the fact that the rest of the drive was off road, kept building up my excitement.

When we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised with not only the stunning views, but also the luxury offered at such a remote location. Adding on to this, the personalized service was on point and the organic food fresh out of the farm was a true Sri Lankan experience. An exclusive experience is the sunrise breakfast served on the helipad overlooking the knuckles mountain range.

Day 02 and 03 was packed with off road drives and trekking to some remote locations and mesmerizing views of the mini waterfalls and mountains across the knuckles mountain range. In particular trekking with Mr. Kotawatta who was not only pleasant company, but had a vast knowledge of endemic species and mountain ranges was a wonderful lifetime experience.

I am a seasoned local and international traveler, and hands down this is one of the best experiences in terms of location, service, food, luxury, activities and climate.

Unfortunately I didn’t do much research about the area so ended up staying elsewhere however wish I had booked here ! I met the owner by luck (the place I was staying hadn’t picked us up) and out of the goodness of his heart drove us to where we were saying. After chatting and hearing about Ferndale Retreat (the photos and location look amazing) I can’t imagine how guests would be treated, given the kind act that he did for us. Thank you so much again, when I visit Sri Lanka again or I know someone that does I will highly recommend they come here!!!

We spent Avurudu at Ferndale Retreat. With family and friends like family. We occupied all 4 villas. It was truly a spectacular location, at the border of Knuckles mountain range & rainforest. . The misty, chilly ambience was so so welcoming. What really touched me was the personalized service and the delicious organic cuisine. All of us truly loved the holiday and are very grateful to the ownership and team for treating us with such warmth, care & affection. We will return !

There is no better place to relax than the Knuckles Range, surrounded by jungle mountains and surrounding by lush vegetation. There is no doubt that the Ferndale Retreet is the crowning jewel of it. Quite a remarkable experience we had in the vila. The service and the level of luxury were at a very high level. There are so many things that we were blown away by in the villa, from the hospitality to the food quality and to the view over the knuckles range. A big thank you to the friendly staff and to the management for providing us with a great stay.
According to my experience, this is the ideal place to relax your mind and connect with nature at the same time
