Experience Harmony at Living Heritage, Koslanda

by | Aug 15, 2018

Traditional architecture and design, combined with premium facilities and attention to detail presents guests with a unique luxury boutique hotel – Living Heritage.

Not heard of Koslanda yet? It is a little town situated in the heart of Sri Lanka’s hill country – close to the famous Lipton’s Tea Estate and a little away from Ella and Mini Adams Peak. If you are on the scenic train route from Kandy to Ella, Koslanda is one of the stops en route.

One particularly special feature of Living Heritage Koslanda is that it has its very own waterfall. Carefully wind your way towards the jungle paths to find yourself in a fantasy setting, taking a cool dip in the waterfall’s plunge pool before returning back to the indulgence of fabulous food and spa treatments of Living Heritage.

With no shortage of places to relax, this harmonious and peaceful retreat lets you recharge and reconnect with life. The infinity pool is located just above paddy fields where you can sit back and treat yourself to splendid views. The villas at this hotel have a private courtyard, also ideal for relaxing with a good book and drink in hand. The Forest Pavilions at Living Heritage Koslanda exhibit a unique construction of local timber placed on cantilevered platforms that offer amazing views of treetops. The rooms also have a ‘semi-open wall’ concept, providing guests with an opportunity to truly connect with nature in a romantic atmosphere. For those who want to explore more places to relax and unwind, 80 acres of stunning forests can be dug into for discovering more wonders of natural Sri Lanka.

Whether you are on a honeymoon in Sri Lanka, spending quality time with your spouse and children, or just enjoying some time off with a group of friends, Living Heritage Koslanda offers activities for everyone. The Luxury villa can sleep a family of four and the villa suites have an interconnection by way of the private courtyard, ideal for larger groups. Kids have plenty of safe and open space to roam around and play outdoor games. Books, board games and lawn games are also available to keep them occupied. Other activities for adults and older children include:

  • A hike to the waterfall
  • Group cooking class to learn some simple Sri Lankan dishes
  • Fun and play at the infinity pool
  • Roasting marshmallows under the stars with an evening bonfire
  • Explore ‘the rock of Buddhist Sculptures” (35 mins drive from the hotel)
  • Guided nature walk along Nahavila Oya River (pepper vines, wild coffee bushes, jackfruit and kumbuk trees)


The Kitchen at Living Heritage Koslanda works hard to create delicious varieties of food, ensuring guests go back raving about their dishes. Flavorsome Sri Lankan cuisines are available, along with a wide range of western dishes and homemade desserts that are absolutely scrumptious.

Honeymooners can enjoy private candlelit dinners while evening BBQs can also be arranged with seafood specialties for guests in groups. Special picnic lunch hampers can also be arranged for your hike to the waterfall if requested in advance.
