Dear Madusha K So grateful to you for leaving this lovely review for us. It's a shame that one of your days was affected by the unusually heavy rains for this time of year, but great that you can attest that, despite the open nature of the Forest Pavilions, once you're tucked up in bed, you'll be nicely cosy and warm (and dry!). We do hop that we will see you up at Koslanda again in the near future. Best wishes and thanks Lucy and the LHK Team

A remarkable boutique hotel located in vicinity of Diyaluma falls build not many years ago with all amenities. Add some quality interior designing and architecture inspired by Giffrey Bawa style. 80 acres of private land with a private waterfall. Yes thats the cherry on the pie.
