Nestled amidst the lush greenery of the wet zone rainforest is Palmstone, a six-bedroom luxury hotel in Kitulgala. Famous for the water-based adventure sports it offers, and for being the stunning backdrop of the award winning movie ‘The Bridge on the River Kwai’, Kitulgala offers both relaxation and adventure for those who seek the pleasures of both worlds. The hotel is close to Belilena, which was once inhabited by a lost generation of Sri Lanka 12,000 years ago.
Inspired by contemporary design, Palmstone Retreat is open-plan: the reception area follows onto a lobby then a dining area, where you can hear the sound of a waterfall nearby and look out over the turquoise-blue pool and manicured garden.
The six-bedrooms are located walking distance away from the main building, immersed in the untamed wilderness.
