Living Heritage Koslanda

The hotel data

Living Heritage Koslanda enjoys a fairytale setting on the fringes of Sri Lanka’s southern highlands. The hotel’s estate is an untouched natural paradise where birds, monkeys, and deer roam, and even has a private waterfall. The view across the hills has a beautiful backdrop of the mountains beyond.

A masterpiece of Kandyan architecture, Living Heritage is a network of open-sided pavilions with verandas and courtyards, topped with a clay-tiled roof. The six suites are split into three categories: luxury villas, with rear garden and Jacuzzi; Pepper Garden Cottage, set away from the main house, and the Forest Pavilions which have an outdoor shower on the terrace.

Meals prepared with fresh market produce include Sri Lankan traditional cuisine and Western options. Plan ahead and bring any alcohol you may wish to drink. In the day, enjoy the sensational views from the infinity-edge pool or yoga pavilion where a massage can be arranged with notice. Explore the spice trees in the garden and the wider estate beyond, including the magical waterfall
