We wanted to experience the Hill Country and get away from it all and we were not disappointed. We got a driver from Colombo which was about 5 hours but well worth the journey, we were greeted by warm smiles, jasmine garlands and freshly squeezed papaya juice. The hotel is hidden in Koslanda and has been lovingly designed and built... More

With just 4 suites, treated like honored guests, a truly unique experience in a special & relaxed setting. I stayed at the Living heritage Koslanda for 1 night and it was such a remarkable experience. In short, the jungle and place are made for each other, the food was exquisite and the service was just great . Perfect & spacious... More

Our fourth visit (which really sums it up) to this gorgeous place and hope it won't be the last. The views from the terrace and the pool are perfect. It's set in its own estate so there's an enormous amount of space. The tranquility absolute, the rooms and bathrooms superb (best sleeps we have had in a long time) and... More

Wow. Koslanda turned out to be a very pleasant surprise. We arrived at night after a long day of driving, and were met at the front gate by a kind staff person with a flashlight. The jungle around us was lush, and were it nor for our guide I would have wondered if we were lost. It was not until... More

Very nice boutique hotel in a remote area of Sri Lanka. Perfect design reflecting local artisitic traditions. Spacious rooms with an inside patio (mind no air conditioning). Absolutely fantastic swimming pool and "private" waterfall (beware of leeches along jungle track - protective shoes are essential). Drawbacks: 1) food was rather mediocre. 2) rooms are not well maintained (minor fauts i.e.... More

A wonderfully, relaxing 3 night stay to re-charge the batteries. Amazing bedrooms and bathroom, very comfortable and private with all the amenities you will ever need; tv & dvd player, board games; tea & coffee; mini bar; mp3 stereo. Set in a considerable sized plot of land, and nestled in a small valley, you are surrounded by tropical fauna, rolling... More

If you are looking for a quiet place to be in touch with nature you should stay at the Living Heritage. The rooms are exquisite with a courtyard entrance and beautiful wooden doors and furniture. The food is perfect and you have a choice of local and western cuisine. The service is wonderful and you will be well looked after.... More

When we arrived after a long journey by car we got beautiful flowers and fresh juice as a welcome. Its quiet, peaceful, and you hear only the noise of the birds, monkeys, and you see the most beautiful butterflies we have ever seen. The food was good and the curry was the best we've had during our two week Sri... More

If only Koslanda were better located for sightseeing. The rooms are spectacular. You enter your accommodation through a doorway and come to a beautiful courtyard before entering a lovely bedroom. The service is great. Everything is done for your convenience. So why not 5 stars? Because we went here to use it as a base for sightseeing. The road, the... More

Two years since our last trip to Sri Lanka, my husband and I returned to Living Heritage Koslanda. We loved staying in this unique and glamorous hotel.
