Set on 80 acres of magical ‘Deyoge Kaele’ (God’s Forest) which extends from Sri Lanka’s famous mountain Adam’s Peak to the sacred Katagarama, the retreat is centered on an ancient elephant migratory route, where even today, wild elephants can be spotted crossing through for a drink at the nearby Iriwendunpola river.
The Living Heritage is a secluded base from which travelers can trek through thick jungle paths, climb nearby mountains like the Ella Gap in Bandarawela, have rivers baths or go cycling through sleepy farming towns like Monoragala (home to a large number of ancient Theraveda Buddhist temples).
Surrounded by the southern mountains of central Sri Lanka, scenic plantations of tea, rubber and pepper, one of Living Heritage Koslanda’s main advantages is being placed just a few steps away from a secluded waterfall, a great place to spend a few hours and even have a picnic breakfast at. Once you’re back at the retreat, an infinity pool an elevated ledge of the property, offers more serenity and breathtaking views of the Uva Province hills.

– They have their own trained masseur and butler who is now trained to be the naturalist of the property.
– Excellent place for nature lovers, people who want to trek and hike
