THE CORNER LODGE
The Corner Lodge, situated about 480 meters from the restaurant is 30 meters from the Victoria View Cabana but does not have a view of the lake. Instead, it is surrounded by newly planted trees and jungle. It also has a kitchenette and can sleep max 2 people. When taking the somewhat long walk to and from the restaurant on this jungle-path, you will be accompanied by a “guard”. Alternatively, you could have authentic Sri Lankan meals at our affiliated village home 150 meters away or even have them brought to your room for a nominal extra charge. When taking this room, you will be directly contributing US$ 15,- per night to the Forest Healing Project.
