We visited the hotel on 19/04/14 and unfortunately we stayed only for a night. The Eco-hotel is in the middle of no-were with 15 to 20 minutes away from Habarana and with a bit bad road at the end until you reach the hotel. The location is excellent 2 tree houses with 2 double rooms each one. The hotel is within the forest and next to a beautiful lake. The ideal place for relaxing in the nature, bird watching and walking on the side of the lake. All the hotel has been made with eco-friendly materials (basically recycled wood) and with a very nice decoration by the owner. Dinner and breakfast was with nice local traditional products and was cooked in front of you at the basement of each treehouse. Finally the staff and the owner was very friendly and helpful. The only thing we wished was to been able to stay a few more days....
