Staying at Kuwera Eco Lodge means living an authentic and unique experience in close contact with the local culture. Its peculiar collocation inside Udawalayagama, a rural village near Sigiriya, allows our guests to take part in scenes of everyday life. The care of our staff to guests is oriented to make your stay something special. Particular attention is paid to food. Most of the vegetables are grown in our organic garden and sometimes we buy vegetables and fruit directly from the farmers of the neighboring houses, in order to enrich the villagers. We try to limit the use of single-use plastics as much as possible, drinking water is provided free of charge in glass jugs. On our yoga platform guests can practice yoga in total tranquility surrounded by nature either by themselves or by signing up for one of our courses followed by certified yoga teachers.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A fantastic experience, the best place I have ever been in years of travelling around! It´s poetic and magic at the same time, Beauty is sovereign here.
This is a real pearl, a trasure hidden in the middle of the jungle: the atmosphere is unique, you feel and hear the nature around you but it is quiet , too.
A sense of peace overcomes you as soon as you get through the gate and then you get stunned by the beauty of the place in general and of the rooms in particular, the amount of love that has been put in every small detail, the comfort you get, the cleanliness of the whole place and the quality of the staff, which is extremly skilled, friendly, and helpful ( I appreciated in particular the special attention given to our kid´s needs, sometimes even preceeding them), truly masters of their job. The food is high quality, varied and very well served.
At the same time it is indeed not far away from Sigiriya, Minneriya safari Park and other interesting places so you if don´t just want to relax in the beautiful pool you have lots to see and after that you can still come back here and enjoy.
Our kids were particularly impressed by their organic garden and from being able to climb on a the REAL elephant watchtower used overnight to protect it.
The lodge is located next to some local, typical rural houses, very simple and authentic, nothing is fake here: so you can get a glimpse of real rural lifestyle, too.
It is perfect for both couples, families or just normal tourist, I just regret not to have stayed longer.

We so enjoyed our stay at Kuwera Eco Lodge. We booked at the last minute as we were not happy where we were staying before. We couldn’t have made a better choice. It’s in a secluded location, which means you can relax. The pool and the area around it is lovely. The bungalows are simple but very comfortable. We visited Sigirya early morning on the one day we had there (we stayed two nights) and got back for a delicious breakfast at about 10am and the relaxed for the rest of the day. It’s about 20 minutes in a tuk tuk and Prasad, the manger of the hotel, took us and picked us up after 2 1/2 hours. The staff at the hotel are fantastic. Such nice people. Also the food is stunning. We had dinner there both nights & thoroughly enjoyed everything. It’s a set menu with a lot of the ingredients from their organic garden. The dinner costs a bit more than you might pay in a restaurant, but still cheap by western standards and worth every penny. We liked the ethos of the hotel of no plastic. There’s a water fountain where you can get drinking water. All in all a really memorable stay at a wonderful, small hotel.

After finding the lodge quite at the end of a very dusty and bumpy road a small paradise opened its doors, when we got there.
With only a handful of well equipped bungalows around a pool and an open food court/bar situated in a combined garden/mini-forest we enjoyed perfect service, perfect food and a place to relax in a most comfortable way.
The ecological concept is - in our eyes -implemented in a very good way.
E.g. usage of plastic is reduced to a minimum (in the rest of Sri Lanka unfortunately not) and lots of the fruit and vegetables come from the attached small organic farm. On request you can be guided around the farm, which we found very interesting.
Place to stay for some days to either only relax or visit the sightseeing spots nearby (own car is of advantage, didn't try other transportation).

Fantastic place, cosy cabins, excellent service and smiling personnel making us feel welcome from the arrival and during the complete stay. It is a very small lodge but pool and dinning (vegetables from own garden) was perfect. placed near Lion Rock, allowing us to visit this in the early morning and having breakfast after. This place will always pop up when in my mind when thinking on our Sri Lanka tour.

We stayed with two small kids. The family cottage was ideal, and so beautifully built with all wooden material. The outdoor shower made you feel even more into nature. The pool was nice with a shallow part for kids. In the backyard a vegetable garden and a view on lion rock and Pidurangala.
Dinner served was excellent, such nice curries and Sri Lankan food, also spaghetti was possible for the kids. People super friendly and helpful. Poor wifi but that might help to take a break even more.

Eco from growing their own vegetables and fruit to the no plastic bottle policy. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Free bike rental, ideal distance to cycle to the lake where you get a peek at the lion rock.

We stayed at the resort for 3 nights as part of a family trip to Sri Lanka and we couldn't fault it; the bungalows were very spacious and comfortable and the food was excellent. Dinner is a set menu with few choices but is delicious and breakfast is an option of Sri Lankan or Western, both very good indeed, both served in the outside restaurant. The service was just brilliant, especially from Wasantha, who seemed to be able to provide whatever was needed before we'd even thought of it! We booked a yoga session on the outside yoga platform behind the pool which was very enjoyable, and the pool itself was a great bonus. Wifi a bit patchy but manageable. All in all an excellent stay!

It’s a small resort in the forest with a wonderful swimming pool and comfortable bungalows with all facilities: mosquito net, coffee/tea, fridge, hair dryer. The rooms are lovely and the bathroom big and comfortable. The eco in the name means waste is reduced to minimal, water is delivered from a dispenser, bath foam, shampoo and lotion are in clay bottles that can be filled, hot water comes from solar panels. The staff is very kind and helpful. Towels for the pool are provided. There is a little patio in front of the rooms where you can sit. The food is excellent in traditional style. Breakfast is served at the table: juice (only suggestion would be to give a choice of juices), tea/coffee, large dish of fruit, eggs, different kinds of bread with jam.
Dinner is traditional, well presented and tasty.

This is a lovely hotel a short drive from Sigiriya. We had 2 rooms adjacent to each other which were clean and comfortable. Breakfast was very good, we didn’t have a meal here in the evening.
Only criticisms would be that rooms were only cleaned if you asked for it to be done & not really enough beds around the pool.
Wifi is patchy but bearable!
