Living Heritage Koslanda

Koslanda | Superior

Living Heritage Koslanda is a very special, small property; more akin to a private Sri Lankan home, but with the service and attention to detail you would expect from a luxury hotel. Its location in Sri Lanka’s Hill Country (halfway between Yala and Tea Country), surrounded by forest and plantations, makes it a great stopping off point for a couple of nights to hang out, enjoy a cooler climate and soak up the wraparound panoramas.

There are just six beautifully designed rooms: interior decor tastefully fuses authentic Sri Lankan style and antiques, with contemporary touches. Each of the three spacious suites benefit from their own private walled garden that houses a jacuzzi and outdoor shower. The Deluxe Room is on the more compact side, but also features a private garden, and its setting away from the main building offers more privacy. For the more adventurous, two new open-sided Forest Pavilions sit on a timber platform with spectacular views over the treetops.

You’ll need to stomp up a hill to get to the infinity pool but it’s well worth the walk - the views across the valley below are breath-taking and you can happily while away several hours beside the pool gazing at the scenery. For a more ‘natural’ swim, stroll down to the river, where you can bathe in a secluded waterfall. When it comes to dining, you’re obviously a captive audience, but the talented local chef rustles up delicious Sri Lankan specialties cooked on a traditional wood-fired stove, as well as some western favourites.

We Say
Don’t just skip through in one night: you really need two or three nights to appreciate the property.
