EKHO Lake Polonnaruwa, is located in North Central Sri Lanka, the medieval capital of the country. Caressed by the waters of one of the greatest man-made lakes, you cannot find a more serene and picturesque place to immerse yourself in serene surroundings and rich history echoing inches away. In 1870 the British Empire chose it for a circuit bungalow, making Lake House a heritage site of its own. The royal wish of Queen Elizabeth II on her visit to serendipity was to stay here and the comfort enjoyed by royalty has grown seamlessly over time into a boutique hotel with a whiff of classic colonial times. In addition to that, all 8 rooms, are completed with modern comforts and overlook the tranquil lake, “ Parakrama Samudra and provide breathtaking views of the wildlife habitat that surrounds it.

We stayed at the Ekho Lake Hotel for two nights and were upgraded to a suite. Hands down, this was probably one of the best hotels we had throughout our 2.5 weeks trip. And a total surprise! Based on the pictures we assumed it would be a nice hotel but never ever THAT nice!
