EKHO Lake Polonnaruwa, is located in North Central Sri Lanka, the medieval capital of the country dating back to the 6th century BC. It’s now a UNESCO heritage World Heritage Site. Caressed by the waters of one of the greatest man-made lakes, it is the perfect destination to immerse yourself in serene surroundings and rich history echoing inches away. King Parakramabahu the Great had perceptiveness for splendor. Reigning from 1153, he built great lakes, beautified the land and created this, the most picture-perfect location. All 40 deluxe rooms are completed with modern comforts and overlook the tranquil lake, Parakrama Samudra. Wake up to the breath-taking views of the wildlife habitat that surrounds it.
