A perfect place for absorbing the peace that only nature can bring- this may not be to everyones taste but if you are looking for personal community based service, fantastic food and a holiday where you can really chill and not worry about what you look like or endless activities this is the place for you. We loved it, we sat and looked at the stunning views- I really recommend the Lake View Cabana- became becalmed by birdsong, ate the best food we had in Sri Lanka and slowed down to the pace of nature. One of the highlights was the hot water, smelling of woodsmoke that was heated in the tin drum above our cabana, staff light the firewood half an hour before you need it and you can then shower surrounded by the forest canopy and the calls of the birds.
One morning we were awoken by a troupe of monkeys clattering around our balcony, we watched a giant squirrel as we ate our breakfast, when we needed activity the jeep took us to Kandy or a nearby tea estate and we even did a walk out of the lodge and through the villages amidst the clove, nutmeg and coffee trees. The staff are really helpful and friendly and all of us from aged 8 years to middle age thought it is one of the most natural and special places we have stayed.
