This is a very quite land which spreads across 80 acres, a true big jungle in other words! There is no sign board at all so you need to contact the friendly hotel manager to find the way to hotel. We stayed at forest pavilions, which brought us a total new experience with room facing to jungle and a beautiful mountain. We heard nothing but the sound of birds and monkeys. When it's dark you could see wild animals like wild boar and wild rabbits wandering in the hotel gardens. It was a heavy rainy day we stayed at the forest pavilion so we can confirm that the curtains are fully sealed, not a single drop of water came inside the room. The swimming pool is amazing that you can relax for hours with the calm sounds of nature. The garden landscape is extremely wonderful, almost all the buildings are built in traditional Sri Lankan style. Food was pleasant and nicely served by the friendly local staff. If you have some time it's worth witnessing the private waterfall which will take no more than 20 minutes walk down in the land. If you go for trekking in rainy season, beware of leaches. Don't forget to inform the hotel staff so they give you leach socks and some basic precaution guidelines which is very helpful. High five to the wonderful experience!

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

This property is an absolute dream! My spouse and I stayed for two nights -- the first in a suite and the second in a forest pavilion. Both spaces have been designed in a clean, simple manner with care and attention. Falling asleep to the sound of light rain and the jungle creatures is an experience we'll never forget! In addition, the staff at Living Heritage are truly wonderful people who went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. We spent many hours relaxing at the infinity pool, playing games in the lounge, and practicing yoga overlooking the jungle. If you're looking for a quiet, beautiful place to check out for a few days, look no further!

Room tip: The forest pavilion is not to be missed.

I had a really special stay at Living Heritage Koslanda, the property is set in a stunning location. We arrived very late at night but could already tell that we were in a very unique and special location. A huge thank you to our driver Viraj from Bernard Tours for getting us there!
The staff are extremely friendly and welcoming. The infinity pool is one of the most impressive I saw on my trip around Sri Lanka, with fantastic scenery and a truly calming vibe.

Room tip: If you want to fully immerse yourself then the jungle rooms are incredible!

If you’re looking for peace and tranquility this is the ideal place for you. It’s an isolated are and very quiet in all ways. Infinity pool is just perfect & the views from the rooms are breathtaking. We just felt like we’re in a Paradise. The team here are second to none. They’re very friendly and helpful. Mr. Johnson always wears a smile on his face and pays equal attention to every guest. We really did enjoy every second at Living Heritage ❤️

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. Infinity pool is on the hills was another addition to the items you get at LHK. This hotel has 6 specious rooms. Not to mention the food they serve was amazingly delicious. Staff appeared to be from the local area and were very polite and genuine in what they do. A place that is highly recommended.

Dear Hasitha K

Thank you SO much for choosing to stay with us, and for all the lovely words.
I enjoyed all the great photos you posted on Instagram - thanks so much!
I think you totally got what we are about and that this is a place to come and kick back, enjoy the quiet, embrace nature and the beautiful surrounds, and to forget about the modern world outside, and enjoy precious time with loved ones and the beautiful Sri Lankan hill country
Thanks and best wishes
