Boulder Garden is a remarkable eco-boutique hotel, lovingly designed around a crop of gigantic black boulders. It took three years to build Boulder Garden from local stone, preserving the surrounding natural environment and providing employment to the villagers. The end result is unexpected luxury and a deep commitment to its natural origins and the surrounding wilderness, which is inhabited by numerous species of endemic birds. You feel as though you are enshrined in an ancient rainforest: winding steps lead through the trees, which are inundated with monkeys and squirrels, past rock pool and flowing water. The occasional jackal will prowl by and eagles and hornbills are a regular sight. Rainforests are naturally wet, so be prepared. Boulder Garden is the sister property of Rainforest Edge located nearby, and is ideal for wildlife enthusiasts looking for comfortable accommodation close to Sinharaja.
