Rainforest Eco Lodge, Sinharaja Sri Lanka, Hill Country
Perched on stilts high above a working tea estate, Rainforest Eco Lodge is a great the place to go if you love adventure and nature. The sense of remoteness gives it a feeling of utter peace.
Rainforest Eco Lodge stays true to its name and conforms to an eco-tourism concept. The surrounding rainforest and tea plantations are yours to explore, with guides on hand to give you an introduction to some of Sri Lanka’s famed flora and fauna. Dive into some of the nearby waterfalls or wait in the sound of silence for a sighting of one of the 25 bird species in the area.
After a day of exploring guests can retire to one of the 16 chalets made out of recycled materials. The private balconies are perfect for spotting monkeys or giant squirrels. All the chalets are en-suite and have large spacious living areas. In your recycled bamboo panelled bedroom you’ll fall asleep listening to the sounds of Sri Lanka’s wildlife and then wake up to breath-taking views of the tea estates and forest canopy.
This lodge is ideal for nature lovers who like to be off the beaten track. For those who are not too keen on insects or bugs this may not be the place for you!
