Pros: A lovely stay with Lucien. Your stay here helps generate income for the whole community. Your delicious dinner is cooked by the neighbours- we had the BEST vegetarian curry with all the Sri Lankan trimmings. You can easily access a walk to a beautiful waterfall for swimming, a hike up to view the knuckles ranges, or take a walk with Lucien through the village to chat with locals about how they live and work.
Pros: Lushan is a great funny genuine host. He helped me with figuring out my plan for the day. Location is very remote but you can get things in Digana. You wake up to 100 birds and fresh air from plants in the back. The house is spacious and clean with big kitchen and bathroom. Free bike service is good but it is very hilly so I rented a scooter to go to huluganga. Lushan made this place fun so I stayed another night.
Cons: The dinner by the neighbor was okay, presented nicely and made with love but I needed more. Would buy vegetables to cook next time.
Pros: The place located out of haste and bustle - staying here you will definitely understand what Sri Lankan village life is really is. The house by itself is absolutely beautiful and super stylish, with nice places to sit inside and outside. Cozy rooms and perfect shower. The dining area looks so nice! Everything is simple but so nicely picked and made with love. The host Mr. Lucian is a very kind and hospitable person. He prepared tea and coffee for us at anytime. His curries are very tasty.
Cons: Everything was amazing! Thank you and good luck!
Pros: We loved our stay at the pepper cottage, Lucian is a great host, the nature is beautiful and the food we had was delicious and very diverse (and vegan by request :)). We stayed for three nights, but wouldn't have minded to stay a few longer. Definitely go here of you're travelling through sri lanka!
Pros: The Pepper Cottage was by far our favorite accommodation in Sri Lanka. It is a bit of a struggle to find, but after you've checked in, you really do not want to leave. We initially booked a four night stay, but we extended it to a week. Lucian is the most welcoming host and the best cook. We had all of our meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) at the accommodation and we are still dreaming of Lucians roti. The best. The house itself is simple but comfortable, and the surroundings are absolutely beautiful. Make sure to go on a hike with Lucian; he will tell you everything about the spices, trees and animals in Sri Lanka.
Cons: The wifi didn't work during our stay because of a lightning strike, but our Sri Lankan sim card worked as a charm instead.
Pros: Peaceful, remote location and amazing breakfast w/ imported coffee! Property has games, bikes, guided hikes, book exchange, massage available ... everything you need. Lucian is a great host!
Pros: Had such as Nice stay here! Lucian is so nice and the renovated house is very beautiful, this in the middle of beautiful nature. Loved it. You can also support the local community here which Is think is fantastic.
Pros: The setting is stunning with wonderful views. Lucian the manager is very welcoming. He took myself and two other guests on a small hike which was very enjoyable. The local people were welcoming and Lucian was very knowledgeable of local flora and fauna. A couple in the village cooked a fantastic dinner. I left very early and Lucian prepared an early breakfast.
Cons: The location is a off the beaten tea k. But it is well worth the experience.

Pros: A beautiful oasis and a wonderful way to get away from noisy streets. Highly recommend!
Pros: We felt like home in this paradise! The staff offered their kindly help and made our stay even better! We never had such a pleasant wake up with an estonishing view on the mountains and a delicious breakfast! The rice and curry was the best of our journey in Sri Lanka!
Pros: Location, food and service were excellent, we felt like private guests
Pros: When you enter you are met by a fabulous view overlooking the mountains. Peeking over the balcony reveals the hillside garden and swimming pool, an area excellent for birdwatching. From the Veranda you can enjoy the fabulous sunset and the misty hills, when the heat of the day comes and goes, from your dining table.
Pros: The guesthouse is in a beautiful location with a 180 degree view over the mountains. You can sit on the terrace and watch the exotic birds or watch the sunset. My room was beautiful, with windows that allowed an amazing view of the mountains. The service was amazing. The hotel manager was very friendly and informative and the chef cooked delicious food, including probably the best curry I had during the whole of my 2 week trip. I went on a beautiful hike near the property (the hotel provides very clear instructions) and saw ladies working in the nearby tea fields as well as wonderful views. I highly highly recommend this place.
Cons: I just wish I had had the time and money to stay a few more days!
Pros: Best food we've had in sri Lanka. Great views. Comfy beds. Isolated tranquility. Super friendly staff. Lovely walks through local villages and tea plantations

Pros: Our cabin was located high in the trees in the middle of the monkeys. The staff are very efficient and friendly. The most memorable experience was on our 7 klm and 12 klm walks with our guide Charles who made the experience exceptional.
Pros: Really really had a wonderful time here! A beautiful environment with great food! It is so much more than just a stay. They are a helping hand for the community and the nature! It is very peaceful and they offer many activities. They are doing everything to let you have a great stay. I absolutely recommend this stay! You will have a special stay that you will remember!
Pros: We loved everything about this place. The lodges are right in the middle of the jungle, you’re surrounded by wildlife but you still have everything you need. The owners and staff are very friendly and do everything in their power to make your stay as best as possible. They are really committed to sustainability: local staff, local food, sun-powered heated water, as less plastic as possible etc. We especially liked the interaction with the local staff. Normally this place is booked out during July-August but like everywhere else in Sri Lanka, a lot of people cancelled due to the bombings. That’s also the only reason why we were able to stay here and even stay longer than planned. (so now it’s the perfect time to go!) Activities we did here were: 2 hikes, visiting a local school, yoga and a cooking class (their food was so good, we wanted to learn it ourselves).
Cons: Nothing! Maybe to make the experience even more local: we wouldn’t have mind it to sit, eat and drink with the local staff.
Pros: This place is so special! It is the real jungle experience and the owners are very friendly. We would recommended this for sure.
Cons: It was hard to find. That’s the magic of the place of course, but maybe they can send you an email with a specific route or pick you up at the street, we felt so sorry for our tuktuk driver.
Pros: Had a very Nice stay here. In the middle of beautiful nature, surrounded by jungle sounds but still all comfort. Just loved it. The Meals were also fantastic. Enjoyed my stay so much, thank you!
Pros: Waking up in middle of the jungle - priceless! Great food and experiences.
Cons: Asked the owner to call a tuktuk after check-out. He just wanted to make money when hearing that my next hotel is gonne be expensive - so he did not call and offered me to drive me by his own (to a outrageous price). Had to annoy me. Something you def not want to have during your holiday.
Pros: Loved living in a treehouse for a few days and waking up to the sounds of the jungle and being amongst the trees in a peaceful and calm setting. All of the staff were incredibly welcoming, friendly and knowledgable. The local walks to Knuckles range with a guide was fantastic!
Cons: I didn't like having to leave. I would love to have spent much more time there exploring the area and getting to know the Polwattha story and what plans it has for the future.
Pros: Polwaththa Eco Lodges provides an excellent experience for anyone who wants to spend time in nature with some peace and quiet. The location is in the middle of a jungle, full of various kinds of plants, birds and small animals. The staff is extremely friendly, helpful and professional. They work hard to keep the place friendly and maintain the relaxed, peaceful vibe that they have created over the years. In terms of eco tourism, this hotel works very well by providing jobs (and training) to the locals, preserving local wildlife, reforestation programs and sustainable waste management. The owners and the staff are genuinely passionate about this aspect and it reflects clearly on their day to day activities. The food here is absolutely wonderful. It is mostly Sri Lankan cuisine, but western dishes were also available. The portions were large and the flavors were on point! They have nice, clean and safe facilities such as a small lounging/games area, a restaurant and they've also recently constructed a beautiful Yoga Shala overlooking the Victoria Lake as well. Everyone and everything here (including the various animals that call this hotel their home) made us feel welcome and helped us have a relaxed and enjoyable experience. Personally for me and my wife, it is easily the best hotel we have ever stayed at in Sri Lanka. We are definitely going again very soon!
Cons: I wish we stayed longer. I think that's the only part we regret about the whole experience. That and the fact that we could not go on any treks (this was also by our own choice) this time. Hope to do this next time. :)

Pros: This Place is Cool and Calm Place, and wery interesting Garden and Clean Rooms , werry Friendly Mannegment Im Comming soon again , Thanks For the Hospitality
Pros: Nothing specially.
Cons: No idea how this is so highly rated, or why it includes the words 'villas' and 'resort' in its name (although the misnomer is consistent with the hucksterish vibe of the owner - perfectly friendly but unashamedly squeezing for as much cash as possible). In essence this is a mediocre small hotel with fairly uncomfortable beds, average food and inflated prices (especially for the extras like laundry or a tuk tuk into town). Pretty disappointing overall, in almost every way.
Pros: Management was very hospitable took personal interest and served good food Just good
Cons: Up keeping of bathrooms
Pros: The staff were pleasant as was the food. If you are in Balagolla for the cricket, the location is good.
Cons: I have taken a long time to submit this review as it is the first negative review I have ever submitted. Lanka Villas on the whole seemed satisfactory, if somewhat dated (they are not villas and it is not a resort by the way) but my particular room was dark and depressing, with walls covered in mold. The window frame in the bathroom was broken allowing insects in, made worse by the fact that there was no mosquito net around by bed. I realise I booked a budget room, but regardless of the price paid (and for this room I paid considerably more than for much better properties in the rest of Sri Lanka) this was completely unacceptable. It would take little time or money to fix the window and paint the walls. I checked out of my room and left a few days early - something I did not do in any other stays during nine weeks in Sri Lanka.
