“For total relaxation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2013

Eco Village is ideal for nature lovers and those who want total quietness or privacy. Its and ideal destination to relax, read a book or even for authors.

This place is owned by a very kind heart ed old gentleman "Uncle Abey" and during my stay it felt like he was family.

Don't expect any luxuries or 5 start treatment here. Uncle Abey has 2 helpers for the cooking and cleaning etc.

I would recommend this place for budget travelers and those who want to unwind and relax without the luxuries.

I have been to Eco village 3 times and plan on visiting again. It gave me the feeling of home away from home each time I stayed there.

The rooms are clean and they have a mini fridge if you want to buy and store any drinks. Galle, Hikkaduwa and Unawatuna are all less than 30 minutes away from the hotel.

Room Tip: If you are a couple try and book the cabana that floats on the river in advance

Eco Village is well worth the visit. There is a raised jungle walk through the marshland, and cabins over the water. The owner is now an old man. He told me he built the place himself with his two sons. There is some interesting architecture, although the accommodation is fairly basic.
It´s a great place to chill out in solitude and enjoy the natural beauty for a few days, or just go there and have a drink in the bar overlooking the lake, walk the trail and chat to the old man as we did.
We were led to Eco Village by Ajith Bandara, a tu- tuk driver who speaks good English. He guided us to some fabulous places off the tourist track, such as ancient temples and lakes frequented by locals. His cell number is [--]

Room Tip: ask for a room on the water
