Many visitors stop here daily, to enjoy the delicious meals served in the veneer restaurants located alongside the famous headwaters of the Kelani River. The water flows lazily while our guests enjoy their drinks gazing out onto the hills above and the enshrouding forests and the vortices created by the dance of the whirlpools of flowing waters. This area is also a bird sanctuary and the beginning of the rain forest reserve lying at the foothills of the Holy Mountain, the Adams Peak where strict conservation is enforced to protect the flora and fauna. It is an ideal location for nature lovers to hike into the forest and discover the beautiful waterfalls and transparent, clear pools with an abundance of exotic birds and rare orchids and aferns.
The crystalline transparent waters of the Kelani River is cool, fresh, and unpolluted. A dip before meals and an iced cool beer to titillate the palate can be the highlight of a visit to “ The Plantation ”, especially on a very hot, sunny day. This river was also the main location of the famous multiple Oscar award winning film “ The Bridge on The River Kwai ”; 8 Awards to be exact. The famous bridge was blasted and long gone at the climax of the film, along with any other remnants and debris of the famous film. One can still see the situation of the bridge if one participates in the white-water rafting facilities which are available at this hotel.
