Far Cry Kumbukkalli Forest Retreat Sri Lanka

Overview of Far Cry Kumbukkalli Forest Retreat

As you pass through the cinnamon stick gates of the resort, the driveway seems to lead nowhere; you presently turn the corner and come face to face with this stunning creation, with its soaring timber columns, flying roofs and natural brickwork.

Bungalow near Habarana is an interesting blend of traditional materials and modern architecture. The use of subtle earthy colours allows the living space and the forest to merge into one. Seemingly open to the elements on all sides, it is a minimalist structure intended to keep guests as close to nature as possible, with delightful views from every window. The carefully cultured lawn in front of the bungalow stretches out to our own little wewa and to the forest beyond, imparting a feeling of absolute serenity, making it the perfect place to enjoy your holiday. 

Sleeping accommodation is located on the upper floor and can cater to eight in comfort. It comprises of:

A large insect-proofed bedroom with an en suite bathroom leading to a private covered balcony. The room has a rustic queen sized bed that sleeps two, while two single beds can be used inside the room, or on the balcony. The room is furnished with a fitted desk and wardrobe.

A large roofed deck area with open sides, leading to a viewpoint balcony – Four single berths are provided here, and occupants are served by a large common bathroom on the ground floor.

All rooms have panoramic views of the surrounding forest canopy affording great opportunities for bird watching and photography. Neighbouring Ritigala can be seen from the deck. Mosquito nets and ceiling fans are provided in all sleeping areas, while traditional palali (cane blinds) are used extensively for shade and protection from the elements when required.

The ground floor comprises a large living and dining area which is open to the garden and the forest. Cool cement floors and minimalist furniture complemented by comfortable multipurpose canvas chairs create a campsite ambience in the most civilized fashion. You can enjoy your meals in the dining area watching the antics of birds, or lounge around over tea or drinks in the living area just enjoying a view of the manicured lawn and the surrounding forest.

The two spacious tiled bathrooms are equipped with all modern conveniences such as rain bath showers and quality bathware. Solar heated hot water is available on tap.
