Living Heritage Koslanda is a gorgeous and secluded boutique hotel located 50 minutes from Haputale. The hotel, situated in the middle of a beautiful forest,offers incredible views. It's a perfect place if you want to have a sort of retreat, a luxurious one ! Rooms are also amazing, the food is incredible and the staff (including Johnson, one of the... More

Living Heritage is a gorgeous boutique hotel off the beaten track in the Hill Country. Its very quiet and relaxed, which is so welcome after the hectic pace in the towns and cities. It is surrounded by nature and wildlife (mostly birds). The rooms are so lovely. Very comfortable and spacious and meet all your needs. The staff are welcoming,... More

A 45-minute car ride from Haptule or in our case a 1.15 car ride from Ella, in the middle of a beautiful forest, this boutique hotel is luxurious, and an utterly relaxing place to stay. Our room was beautifully appointed, my only criticism would be the shower which had the controls installed upside down and therefore made it very difficult... More

Nestled among the hills of Koslanda comes the wonderful surprise of Living Heritage. The rooms are plush and the infinity pool amazing with a waterfall hidden in the grounds too. The manager and staff are very friendly and accomodating-just a call away is anything you want! The lovely food is western style but a nice change and beautifully served. Breakfast... More

The rooms were nicely furnished, with stylish touches, the beds were comfortable- although there was no a/c in our room. The pool was great and service was impeccable. Food, on the whole was delicious, my personal favorite being the chicken soup. All in all, an excellent stay, would highly reccomend to anybody visiting Sri Lanka. (also, I really liked the... More

We travelled around the World so It's hard for us to be surprised with something really great. This is a place to visit. Staff is charming as in the whole Sri Lanka. The property staff are local people. The food is excellent. The attention to detail makes this place heaven. The location is superb and peaceful. We were there with... More

Peaceful, relaxing, beautyful. Amazing setting straight from the beginning. It takes a while to find it as there are no signs on the road but after you pass the gate you're taken on the path with tropical fruits to arrive in the most wonderful, manicured gardens with modern but traditionally design houses. Amazing infinity pool. Probably not the obvious choice... More

Living Heritage is such a beautiful and peaceful place. The service was friendly, attentive and the food was great. We only had one night there and were late leaving! We ventured out to the lovely waterfall where we had a refreshing dip in the water. Even our two year old daughter couldn’t resist jumping in. This was followed by relaxation... More

Koslanda is a gem. Absolutely beautiful and, whilst possibly a little ascetic for the fan of chintzy decor (as seen on other Tripadvisor comments) it has been built with a generously of spirit and perfectionist attention to detail that is a complete credit to the owner, with interesting antique furniture and artefacts throughout. It is hidden away in its own... More

Beautiful scenery, stunning rooms and first class service combine to make a stay at this hotel an exquisite experience. An absolute must for the discerning traveller. The food was excellent and served in a delightful setting. If you are looking for that 'special place' then look no further ...
