The lodge was the perfect place to slow down for a bit while on my travels. I had some of the best food I've had in Sri Lanka, the staff was super sweet, the private accommodation was so nice, and the owner Graham was super helpful and accommodating! I definitely recommend this to travelers looking to unplug for a while and be surrounded by raw nature.
