This stay was the highlight of our trip. I loved having a cabin in the jungle with nothing around but nsture. We got to do some lovely hikes. Would go back in a heart beat! The only down side was food while very tasty was not at all spicy and one morning breakfast service was poor. We asked for more...

We were due to stay here for five nights but ended up leaving from sheer frustration after four. When we arrived we were offered a room upgrade as we were on honeymoon, this was at cost to us and partially due to us being unhappy with the original room we were given. We accepted and settled into our new room...

First time we'd tried anything like this and what an experience. Nothing like waking up to the sounds and smells of a rain forrest! Only there for 1 night so could only do one hike but even so was a fantastic eye opening experience. Food was nice and staff helpful and very friendly. Only down side was the Mosquitos in...

We had a memorable stay. It was truly close to nature, we did a couple of hikes and just enjoyed sitting in the 'wilderness'. Our guides Chandana and Wije were exceptional. The food was very good and the rooms were nice and clean. Our room had an exceptional view as well.

Eco-Lodge was the place to get a real touch with nature. When we first arrived in Kandy, we felt a little bit annoyed by the crowd and pollution, We decided to stay away from the city for our last two nights, and it was really worth. We experienced Kandy from a different angle and we like it. The Eco-Lodge is...

Awesome place in the mountains where hospitality is common. The lodges are clean and there is warm water. The place is like a homestay. Our kids (16 and 19 years old) cooked along with the staff (this was possible because there were not so many guests at that moment). When you like to be surrounded by nature...this must be your...

If you are looking for a quiet time, listening to the birds and the bees, this may be the right place. The staff are very courteous and they will take you on some great treks too. The one to the waterfall is a must. One of the cottages overlooks the lake and we were lucky to get it. The chef...

We spent two nights at the Eco Lodge with the family during our roundtrip through Sri Lanka. It is very nice to spend a few days in the jungle, very different from the other places we stayed. There is a variety of lodges that differ quite a bit in distance and altitude from the restaurant area. Some lodges have a...
