Your stay here is pretty much all-inclusive (booze, some drinks, some snacks and massages are extra) but you can easily come and not put your hand in your pocket again. We’d also like to stress that although it is as eco as it gets in Sri Lanka, Tekanda Lodge is not basic by any means. Quite the opposite, the finish is high quality, every detail has been considered.
Tekanda Lodge sits on its own private hilltop, surrounded by its own tea & coconut estate. There’s a main, central building with four rooms centred around a lush-planted courtyard. With two private suites situated slightly away from the main area for added tranquility.
The four large bedrooms within the main lodge have a lounge area, hand-made wardrobes, AC, en-suite bathrooms and private verandas with views over the surrounding lowlands and paddy fields, plus a gorgeous central courtyard.
There is also direct access to a shared day-room with day-beds. These rooms sleep two and can be arranged as a double or a twin. If you’re traveling alone we offer these as shared rooms, or you can pay extra to have it to yourself. There’s also plenty of room to add a spare bed for kids or friends that would like to share.
The two spacious cabana suites come complete with private verandahs overlooking the paddy fields. The cabana suites are set away from the other rooms, offering a little more privacy and space. They come with an AC & ensuite bathroom.
They are both enormous with a lounge and living area and are perfect for bringing the family or friends along – contact us directly if that’s your plan – or just having a lot of space and privacy for yourselves.
There is also a spacious open-sided communal lounge, dining area and bar overlooking the pool and with a view. To say the least.
And did we mention the pool? Laze by or in it, in line with the treetops, and watch the jungle-show play on repeat.
