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.
