  • Descripción


    Situated in Eluwankulam, Sri Lanka, Our Lodge is 4km from the new Wilpattu National Park entrance. The 6-acre plot runs along the Uppu Aru, a backwater of the Dutch Bay estuary, and houses six guest cabanas. Our beautiful land is also host to a variety of bird life, monkeys, deer and an occasional elephant or two! We are committed to minimizing our footprint and therefore have created our cabins out of up-cycled shipping containers and our furniture from recycled pallets. We ensure that we support the surrounding villages and therefore find a majority of our staff and suppliers from the neighborhood.
