Introduction

Martin’s Lodge is a timeless small guesthouse cut off from the rest of the world, which used to be the only accommodation close to the park entrance. Martin, a charming and eccentric host who is a legend in the Sinharaja area, runs this guesthouse with the help of his family. This is such a remote area and so far behind the rest of the world that reservation requests are still collected during Martin’s weekly visit to the post office. The six-roomed property is very basic, but the hospitality and stunning location both amply make up for the lack of luxury. Martin is also an expert on the forest and will talk freely about the place that he clearly loves deeply. The guesthouse is regularly visited by naturalists, ornithologists and university students who come there for research and exploration.

Accommodation

Martin's has ten basic rooms which consist of four triples, four doubles, one quadruple and a dormitory (which can sleep up to ten guests). None of the rooms have a/c. Rooms are furnished with single beds fitted with mosquito netting.

Aug 31, 2012 : Location is superb – the remoteness of the lodge is a key factor, allowing easy access into the forest.
Jul 28, 2009 : Welcoming environment. Close to the Rainforest. Good Birds
