“Superb hideout”
Reviewed 1 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Just checked out this place today. This is a gem of a hideout amidst the Knuckles mountains. We spent two wonderful days in this magical location and hope to come back for a longer stay. Anyone visiting this place need to make note of few things beforehand:

You can definitely enjoy this place if you are generally fit to walk and climb. But if your movements are restricted in anyway, this is probably not the place for you.

It is very hard to take a vehicle right up to the cottage. Specially if it's rains (which is unpredictable in this area), the slopes could get treacherous even for a 4x4. We had to park about 600m away and walk to the cottage.

Call a day before, and get the map with very clear instructions to get to this cottage. It could be hard to find. You can use Google Maps to get to Rattota and then,Pitawala Pathana, but from then on, don't use Google Maps. Instead use the PDF sent by the owners.

This is a cottage located in the forest. Being so, it's virtually impossible to keep out insects, so bring insect repellent. And if you come in the rainy season, bring something to protect yourself from leeches when you go for walks.

It was my first time in this location and since it was a bit hard for our elderly parents, we had to check out a day early. The owner, Sisira was very understanding and accommodating and he didn't charge us for the third night we cancelled. Regardless, the place is truly a piece of paradise, and I plan to come next year with my friends to do more.
