Living Heritage Koslanda, Hill Country

This magical four-suite hideaway in the southern Hill Country is set amidst 80 verdant acres of tropical gardens and ancient forest home to prolific wildlife. Wraparound panoramas – of steeply wooded valleys and distant mountains – reveal themselves everywhere, as the traditional Sri Lankan design of this small boutique hotel pays the utmost respect to its breathtaking natural setting.

The three atmospheric timber-and-stone guest suites brim with eye-catching antiques and a host of luxurious private amenities including outdoor jacuzzis, ensuite bathrooms and open-to-the-sky showers. Each has a central courtyard, and this traditional Sri Lankan design feature enhances the feeling of space. The more secluded fourth guestroom comes with its own garden and relaxation pavilion.

Promising absolute tranquility, Living Heritage Koslanda is a mesmerising place to relax and unwind. The hilltop swimming pool is stunning and a hike to the pristine waterfall through ‘God’s Forest’ is an absolute must. This sacred woodland home to giant squirrels, monkeys and birds is an ancient elephant corridor, and these gentle giants might be seen passing by from June to August.
