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, biking and swimming.

Had a wonderful time at Borderlands. Accommodation was beautiful in a treetop open cabin with en-suite bathroom. Great to fall asleep to the sound of the river running past. Great communal area to hang out, would be great when the place is buzzing! The rafting and canyoning were

The staff were fantastic and quickly addressed a mix up with our rooms. The white water rafting was also terrific but not for the faint hearted. The river has proper rapids and not the slow flow found in many other places....it is a wild ride. I wouldn’t recommend the

"try for an ensuite cabin!"
"Tents on platforms have shared shower and toilet facilities but the individual rooms have en suite. Head torches advisable."
"Ask for a room overlooking the river"
"The best rooms are the one upstream"
"There are family rooms with ensuite; if you need that, be sure to ask for it."
