What a wonderful place to visit! You are right in the middle of nowhere, but what beautiful countryside and views! This place has it all for a five star get away from the crowds. Absolute luxury for room comfort, food, pool, service and setting. marvellous!

We arrived early in the morning after a 5 hour drive from Colombo Airport - very tired to say the least! The staff were very welcoming and the hotel was absolutely glorious. The pool is so quiet and in the most beautiful location, a very short walk from the main hotel. The rooms are gorgeous and spacious - it is... More

We only booked 1 night as a last minute recommendation and boy were we upset that we did not have more time to stay at this place!! Could this place have been any more idillic? Calm, serene, picturesque, this property has acres of land you are free to roam as well as its own private waterfall which is perfect for... More

A hidden gem. A pain to get to due to road quality, but once you're there, it is truly worth it. The rooms are more like villas, each with their own courtyard, and tastefully decorated in the subtle, sleek style you'd normally associate with an Aman. View is spectacular. There is jungle all around, and lush hillsides rising on all... More

Great location, great room, great food But what can really make or break such nice place is the staff. Excellent team which will make you at home from the very first to the very last minute! That is what makes the difference between a great place and an excellent place. Can something be more than perfect? Well, they are well... More

...but missing something. We stayed here for three nights (Feb 15) soon after getting married. The location is pretty impressive; the infinity pool looks over hills and jungle, and the waterfall in the grounds were beautiful. There were hundreds of butterflies everywhere when we stayed, which is obviously dependent on time of year. The rooms were huge, nicely decorated, and... More

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights earlier this month and it was just the most relaxing place to stay. Exceptional accomodation, we stayed in one of the terrace rooms, with stunning atrium and lots of unique features. The staff were just brilliant, locally recruited and very welcoming and helpful. The food was excellent, my only criticism would... More

After all the usual suspects and long winding drives to get to them, I was happily mesmerized by the offerings of Koslanda. Exceptional location and exquisite architecture made the whole experience almost dream like. The pace is relaxed and that is how you will be after a couple of hours. The first time I've stopped and just breathed for decades.... More

I have recently had my second visit to Koslanda - such a magical place and I can't wait to return again. The drive from Colombo is, admittedly pretty long and winding (but a beautiful drive), but as soon as you are through the Koslanda gates it is long forgotten. Perfect for a few days r&r, the hotel is beautifully and... More

After reading all of the wonderful reviews online, we went out of our way to travel to Koslanda in order to stay at Living Heritage...and could not have been more disappointed. It was such an awkward stay that we wonder if we were there during a period of maintenance or a shift in staff. It's a gorgeous spot, but an... More
