Introduction

Polwaththa Eco Lodge was created by its Sri Lankan owner who is originally from this Kandyan village and does much to benefit the surrounding village community. His Dutch wife is an ardent trekker and is well versed with the area: she is happy to accompany guests on their treks. The Lodge follows eco-friendly practices of recycling wastes, harvesting rain water, and organic farming. There is no mains electricity here – solar power is used to light up a few bulbs and provide hot water into the bathrooms. Relax on the veranda and take in the sounds of nature; go on a trek with a picnic lunch in hand; or visit the nearby village and learn of traditional Kandyan crafts. This peaceful and rustic holiday retreat is a nature lover’s paradise.

Accommodation

Accommodation is in five simple, earthy cottages, which are scattered at different levels hugging the hilly terrain. Two are built on stilts which gives a feeling of being in a tree house. Each cottage has a private veranda with wonderful views of the surrounding wilderness and some have views of the scenic Mahaweli River at a distance. Each of the rustic cottages has a spacious bedroom furnished with twin beds opening out to a private balcony with lounge chairs and a table. The attached bathrooms have h/w shower, wash basin, and w/c. Red Dot recommends cottages three and four which are built on stilts and have better views. Cottage four is at the highest level on the hill and has views of the Mahaweli River at a distance.
