Living Heritage Koslanda, Koslanda
A peaceful hillside eco-retreat, Living Heritage Koslanda is a luxury boutique hotel set on 80 acres of protected forest, and located on an elephant migratory route. Accommodation consists of nine bedrooms that combine contemporary-styled luxury with traditional Sri Lankan design and colours. Three luxury villa suites feature private courtyards with Jacuzzi pool and outdoor showers, and the Forest Pavilions offer back-to-nature, romantic open to the elements sleeping experience, among the treetops. Surrounded by misty mountains and tea, pepper and rubber plantations, guests can enjoy treks through thick forest paths to an idyllic private waterfall, hike through nearby tea estates and Hindu villages, have river baths or go cycling through nearby towns. There’s no shortage of delightful places to unwind – the hotel’s large infinity pool overlooks several paddy fields, and offers great views of the mountainous landscapes. There are several pavilions located around the estate, ideal for relaxing with a good book and cold drink. A 10 minute drive or a beautiful walk will lead you to the scenic Diyaluma Falls, Sri Lanka’s second highest waterfall. and the surrounding area of Koslanda offers walks through tea estates, a visit to nearby Lipton’s Seat or the incredible rock carved Buddha’s at Buduruwagala.
