Kumburua Eco Lodge in Sigiriya | Adventure hotels in Sri Lanka | Hotels in Sigiriya | Hotels in Sri Lanka
Situated only 5kms from the Unesco World Heritage site of Sigiriya and 16 kms from the ancient religious city of Dumbulla, KUMBURA is set in the country village of Kimbissa, which is part of an area known locally as the Elephant corridor. (And yes, occasionally we are visited by elephants looking for Jack fruit, young rice and banana's! ) There are mainly farms that specialize in rice and root crops in the area; my family mainly produce rice.
In the garden's of KUMBURA you will find a large selection of indiginous trees including king coconut, mango, teak, acacia, wood apple and palm. In late 2011 we planted a crop of banana trees. Mixed with the larger tree's we also have different types of palms, hibiscus and grasses surrounding the lodge. There are a plethora of beautiful birds that visit our land; wild peacocks roam Kimbissa and are often seen in our garden.
Structurally, KUMBURA is built mainly of indigenous materials such as teak, mango and acacia woods, much of which was harvested from our land. The roofs are of woven coconut leaves, the half walls of natural local granite and wood fired mud bricks. The lodge is built in the traditional style with open walls in both the living and sleeping areas; helping increase airflow and maximize light. Colourful Barbara Sansoni fabrics cover our furnishings; dinner-wear and other accessories from Colombo's Paradise Road bring a modern twist to your stay at our very simple, but beautiful lodge.
