Living Heritage is a carefully designed hotel highlighting the best of Sri Lankan architecture in a peaceful location. It was immaculately clean and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. The food was fresh, local and delicious. The pool has a stunning view and again the design and attention to detail makes such a difference. There are two types of roos; the suites which are traditional in design and with great bathrooms and outdoor spaces. The forest pavilions, whilst more contemporary, have the same attention to detail. We can't wait to go back....

It was an amazing place filled with amazing staff. Not to mention the humbleness and flexibility when requested. You can always talk with them and they are very friendly. I was there taking twelve students of mine for a meditation retreat and it was beautifully arranged and service was excellent. From the food to accommodation we were well taken cared of. Throughout our stay for three nights we were given amazing service. You can walk to the waterfall and that place is a true heaven on earth. Reiki Teacher Kanisha H Tharuka

The property is amazing in an excellent location. Rooms are very clean and well maintained. The hotel blends in with nature and provides privacy and calmness throughout the stay. However, there were few instances where the service was below par. Food - Food is average with a very limited a la carte menu. Could improve by including few local dishes which would make a huge difference as the chef too would be able to cater better. Customer Service - Felt there was room for improvement by giving more attention to the guests. Carrim could revamp his people skills as we felt that he was in his own small world inside his office and had an 'I am always right' attitude. Where as, we felt that Johnson had much better people skills even though we could only converse with him for a few minutes as he was taking few days off. We booked a 02 night stay and upon arrival at the hotel we were greeted by Carrim at the lobby. However, we did not receive a bouquet of of flowers as mentioned in one of your promos which was running from 10th to 24th February 2021 (Our stay was from 21st-23rd February), but only received a small garland. We had also mentioned on email that we were celebrating our Wedding Anniversary on the 22nd of February, to our disappointment there was nothing arranged from the hotel. Even a bed deco would have been much appreciated. Later on to the evening we requested for a couple of wine glasses to be brought to our room. We received glasses with lipstick marks, which was quite disgusting given the current pandemic situation which needed extra attention to cleanliness. The afore mentioned promo also stated about a complementary pre-dinner cocktail. However, we only received this during our first night. All in all an amazing hotel could have added so much value if the customer service was improved and if the manager had interacted with the clients more. I believe Johnson would have made that happen had he remained at the property during our stay. All other staff were amazing including the security guard Ravi who had much better people skills.

What a wonderful break into a nature. The forest pavilion was such a experience and we enjoyed every minute of our stay.Huge shout-out to Johnson & Carrim for being so accommodating with our needs. I happen to leave one of my favorite books at the place by mistake and they posted it back to me within days. Great service, amazing food and breathtaking location, just what we needed.

The hotel is in a wonderful location. The views are breathtaking. The chalets designed in traditional way are extremely comfortable. You feel at home the moment you walk in. The staff are professional and make you feel welcome. There are a lot of leeches around the river - so keep some salt with you when you go for a walk to the waterfall.
