The space

Polwaththa is a unique and authentic experience that offers you the best of traditional Sri Lankan village culture. Polwaththa means "coconut estate" which indicates that you will be surrounded by coconut palm trees and a variety of other trees that provide a lush greenery throughout the year, giving you a living-in-the-jungle' feeling.

The jungle is filled with wildlife that include 61 different species of birds of which 16 are endemic. Monkeys, barking deer and the giant squirrel roam about during the day while wildboar, owls, flying squirrels and bats appear at night.

The jungle and environment provide a calm and tranquil atmosphere in a comfortable temperature zone ranging from 20-28ºC . This experience is enhanced with a personalised service of a truly traditional style.

Our vision at Polwaththa is to practice true ecotourism while maintaining a degree of discretion to protect our unique identity and provide adequate safety to our guests. We started in 2010 as one of the first to introduce ecotourism to the Kandy region, and we hope our philosophy will be an inspiration for others to follow.

Thank you Lian for the kind words - sorry that I could'nt say good-bye when you left - I was a couple of minutes too late. Hope to see you soon, even before the orange tree you planted bears fruit.

Polwaththa Eco Lodges certainly live up to its name, especially if you're a nature lover who relish the rustic-style living amidst the forest canopy. Be prepared to encounter wildlife like grizzled giant squirrels scaling the sky-high mango trees in search for food, tiny shrub …

I have worked as a Tour-leader for a major Dutch Travel Organisation for 11 years and have seen from my experience, what travellers to Sri Lanka should really see and experience. I am proud of my country and will enthusiastically show her around to foreign visitors.
