Located on the edge of the Sinharaja Forest, this remarkable eco-tourist hotel was hand-built into, under and around a slew of gigantic boulders.
Delicious food is served in the open-air restaurant situated beneath the largest boulder, a unique experience; it's not unlike dining under the prow of the Titanic! There is also a cave bar and spring-water swimming pool tucked into the shady, quiet and luxurious surroundings.
The bedrooms have a rustic charm to them with rough stone walls, shutters rather than windows and no doors on the bathrooms.
Guided walks can be arranged into the nature reserve (about a 30 minute drive) although you can see plenty of bird, insect, reptile and mammal life around the resort.
