Borderlands Eco Lodge


Borderlands Eco Lodge

$61 per person

Situated on a hill overlooking the Kelani River, our camp combines the best aspects of outdoor camping and travel for those who need a certain degree of comfort. Surrounded by mountains and the clear, rushing Kelani below, our site is truly stunning. It is rustic and natural, perfect for those looking for a refined camping holiday.

All our riverfront cabins are covered by thatched roofs, ensuring a dry stay at all times. Your comfortable cabins feature twin beds (which can be converted into double beds), quality linen, bedside tables, and lamps, as well as a private terrace with spectacular views overlooking the Kelani. All our cabins also have mosquito nets. Our cabins are ideal for families and will sleep a family of between three to five. In the evenings guests gravitate to our Long House with its sound system, informal bar, and comfortable cushioned seating area. The Long House is fully Wi-Fi connected so you can share your adventures with friends anywhere in the world. Enjoy delicious food, a cold beer and great company with newfound friends in a completely chilled environment.

We have a deck overlooking the river as well as a place for a campfire, where you can unwind by roasting marshmallows.

We hope you enjoy your stay and our lovely accommodations in this lush, wooded spot in Sri Lanka. We are confident that you will leave having fallen in love with Borderlands!

The Long House features a bar, a “chill out” area for rest after a hard day of fun and a kitchen where Chef Bandula cooks up a delicious selection of Sri Lankan rice and curries, often hailed as the best guests have tried while in Sri Lanka, as well as some more western dishes for those who want a break from curry and rice. Meals can be adapted for guests with dietary restrictions and allergies. The Long House is fully wifi’d and is free of charge. There are a few power points in the Long House, but as a rule we ask that you charge any electronics in your cabins. The Long House also has a great sound system so you can attach your iPod so you can listen to your music, but please be considerate to other guests we may have at camp when choosing music! Free filtered water is available in the Long House throughout your stay. All our cabins have proper wooden frame beds with mattresses, lights both inside and outside. Each tent has a thatched roof over it and a terrace from which you can view the river and the surrounding mountains. Our cabins/tents zip completely secure so you can have total privacy, and our wood cabins, whilst can open on three sides during the day, have blinds which come down and offer complete privacy. Each cabin has a private, secured entrance. There is no need to bring towels as you will be provided with one during your stay. All accommodation has power points to charge electrical items such as laptops, phones and cameras. We do not have en suite bathroom facilities, but our bathroom block is separated into male and female facilities. Our showers are hot water showers. The water is safe for brushing teeth but do not drink the water, as it is not treated. A refreshing alternative to a shower is a river bath, and where possible please bring biodegradable products to help us protect our shared environment. We keep all of our watersports equipment on site so that we can maintain our equipment properly. As well as kayaks and rafts, we have all our safety equipment on site, including life jackets, paddling jackets and helmets on hand for all ages and sizes. Borderlands has a car park, so if you come with a driver you will have a safe place for the car. Please let us know if you have any requests, and we will be happy to fulfill them.
