The entire structure of the property takes into consideration the preservation of the surrounding environment, which is reflected in the design and construction of the hotel as the majority of materials used in the construction have been recycled. ‘Illuk’ straw has been used liberally in the interior and thatching of the roofs to maintain cool temperatures, exuding a true Sri Lankan identity and elegance, while discarded railway sleepers have been put to good use in the construction of decks, walls and furniture. The furniture has been made by expert local artisans using widely available timber for a warm and rustic atmosphere. Rough, hewn granite rock lends a simple, hand crafted elegance to the look and feel of each villa.
The property has a beautiful pool elegantly constructed with a deck of natural cut stones and a baby pool for children. A gym is under construction and will soon be opened. Also special at the property is a range of herbal spa treatments using specific ingredients derived from local grown tea and other plants from the 98 Acre tea estate. All treatments are done in the privacy of a guest’s room. For guests who prefer to fly in, the resort-owned Helipad is located just five to ten minutes away from the property.
