We spent three nights here during our honeymoon. The location of Tree Tops Jungle Lodge is about half an hour's tuk tuk ride from Buttala. A stunning place where you really get to live in nature in a forest setting with views of the beautiful mountains. The tented huts were large and comfortable, very good bed and bathroom in the tented room. We were treated with thundershowers in the afternoon and it was wonderfully peaceful and relaxing to sit in front of the tented room and watch the light and clouds change over the mountains. A perfect place to relax with a book. The manager Kamal and the team took us on a tour on foot in the forest which was a real highlight. The food was fantastic; fruit and vegetables from the local area, curd from the local buffaloes. Breakfast was served outdoor overlooking the bush and included fruit, toast, fresh juice, rotti – flat bread - , omelet and of course tea. The Sri Lankan curry meals were delicious made up of perfectly cooked dishes which varied every day. The service by the local staff team is friendly and quick. The lodge hires people from the village and trains them in hospitality and English. This is an excellent, relaxing place to stay that gives back to the community. A relaxed forest paradise not to be missed. Highly recommended. Thank you. Rebecca and Nick, Canada.
