Rainforest Ecolodge is located in the south of Sri Lanka, in the midst of the scenic Enselwatte Tea Estate, and bordering one of the worlds last remaining rain forests and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Sinharaja Forest Reserve.

Fish spa therapy.,Kids who are interested in the nature will enjoy the treks,Kids will be the sole responsibility of the parents Many guest use saloon cars to visit the hotel, But if the car is up to its maximum load it may be hard to maneuver for some drivers , so its best to use a 4x4 if the passenger count is high or if the passenger has heavy baggage otherwise a saloon car has no problem accessing the Hotel Regards Camelia

"Probably best rooms 10-16, although watch out for monkeys on the roof!"
"Go for one nearest the restaurant and the tracks to each one are quite rough and the furthest ones are quite a trek."
"All lodges are the same."
"Have a room near the main building - the walk to further rooms is steep down hill."
"Go for a walk in the forest with Jagath, the hotel guide - great guy with a lot of knowledge and real appreciation of the forest."
