Our fourth visit (which really sums it up) to this gorgeous place and hope it won't be the last. The views from the terrace and the pool are perfect. It's set in its own estate so there's an enormous amount of space. The tranquility absolute, the rooms and bathrooms superb (best sleeps we have had in a long time) and the staff are always friendly and helpful.
Lovely just to sit, watch and absorb the beauty of your surroundings. Visit the waterfall, swim, or float about in the pool and remember what it is like to relax and enjoy nature at it's glorious best.
What ever age you are, we travelled with half a dozen smallish children, you will love this place.
If you stay here as part of a longer trip, Udawelawa is about one and a half hours drive and we got to Aragam bay in a little over two hours. Yala is also just two hours away and from there you have the whole of the south coast to explore!
From Colombo it will take probably at least five hours to get to Koslanda but the drive itself is stunning and with such a beautiful place awaiting you at the end of it's well worth the trip.
