HOTEL BY THE WATERFALLS, RAMBODA

Located in a small hill town of Ramboda in central Sri Lanka, between Kandy (historic city) and Nuwereliya (tourist hill station), in a unique ecological zone (of tropical mountain forests and grasslands) this 27 room, 6 storey hotel building is completely integrated into the terrain of the land. The design had to address environmental regulations that stipulated a 2 storey building to the road and to avoid blocking views of the scenery to the locals and passing tourists. A 30 feet cantilevered open viewing deck, provides a 270⁰ panoramic view of the surrounding nature- the Waterfalls, Kotmale reservoir and the verdant hills. The rooms are serene allowing for picture postcard views the scenery.
