I enjoyed three nights at Borderlands. The setting's great and the tent stayed dry through four days of intermittent rain. The food was darn tasty and the staff was pretty attentive. I enjoyed the canyoning, kayaking and rafting, although hardcore folks might find the adventure too tame and cityslickers might find the accommodations too rugged. A quiet place, i'm sure the Long House is a hoot though for a big group.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Borderlands Adventure Eco-Lodge offers comfortable riverfront accommodation, in 4 tents and 11 cabanas (3 of which have en suite facilities) which are fully kitted with beds (which can be arranged from singles to doubles, with up to 5 beds able to fit in a family cabin) and have electricity throughout so guests can charge their laptops, phones and cameras. Each tent and cabana is located on a wooden platform with a private deck, with views overlooking the Kelani River and the surrounding mountains. All meals are served in The Long House, a great place to chill out at the end of the day. A full music system means guests can listen to their Ipods. Evening Movie Nights are offered, which is a great hit with kids. As well as offering accommodation, Borderlands runs white water rafting, canyoning, and white water and flat water kayaking activities from our ecolodge, and offers the largest number of sit-in and sit-on-top kayaks in Sri Lanka. Other activities include abseiling, hiking, and swimming. ... more less
