The Ark is a fascinating three-storey, metal structure that is designed to capture spectacular views of the valley below, with its lush green paddy fields, surrounding mountains, untouched wilderness and tea and rubber plantations. Inspired by the ark-shaped, small cadjan houses traditionally used by farmers to protect their crops from wild animals, The Ark is the creation of Sri Lankan architect Narein Perera. When you arrive, there is a short walk along a wooden path before The Ark comes dramatically into full view, rising above the trees. The first floor consists of an open-sided living and dining area with breath-taking views, whilst the three bedrooms are located at different levels below. An infinity pool rests amidst the foliage with spectacular views across the valley. The Ark has a tranquil setting and is ideal for the adventurous, keen bird watchers, and those looking for a relaxing and peaceful holiday. Up to six guests can be accommodated here comfortably. The Ark is not recommended for those with mobility difficulties and young children below the age of ten years due to the heights. The Ark is rented on full board basis.
