Another excellent gem in the 'Back of Beyond' chain of Eco Lodges. If you love birds and birding, the dawn chorus will amaze you. Try some of the excellent birding treks and walks around the village tanks. It's also a great base to explore Sigiriya - but do not miss the trek to the top of Pidurangala. The resident naturalist does a good job of explaining about nature and history on these treks/activities. What it lacks in terms of formal star-classed comforts, is more than made up for by the comfort in the rooms, the fantastic open air showers, the warm and informal service by the staff, great food and an authentically Sri Lankan ambiance which you will not get in many star classed hotels.
