What a relaxing weekend! You could not have asked for more - everything was catered for. The chalets are well appointed taking into consideration a guest’s every single need. Good on you for not providing a TV - it forces you to enjoy the natural things out there for no fee at all! The hike was the highlight. A very big thank you to the staff who patiently guided us through the Bush. Exhausting but challenging. A dip in the rock pool was the ultimate reward. Authentic Sri Lankan meals provided were certainly a treat - typical home style cooking. Tranquility at its best. Highly recommended.

Had an awesome exeperience at rambas reserve, surrounded by the jungle, nature birds singings and having no much network coverage kept us away from the usual life style and we were enjoying every bit of nature aroud us and the natural pool was a highlight of the tour, friendly staff with superb srilankan food, though no much variety in food it suits the simple lost in the woods stay. Overall great exeperience ❤️

The road to Rambas is a bit rough but once you get there, its heaven. Cozy and well laid rooms, large french windows overlooking the forest, comfortable beds, beautiful and spacious toilets which are tastefully done. The nights are beautiful at rambas, the sound of the forest is a stress reliever. Very friendly staff always ready to help with a smile. The chef Karuna makes sure you get a deliciius meal. The chalets have extreme privacy. Not forgetting the natural spring water swimming pool. The manager Dissanayake will assist you to bring you to rambas if you are unable to find the place from the main road. A 4 wheel drive is at your service if your vehicle cannot reach the peak. There is a safe parking area in the midway of the climb.
Me and my family had a wonderful stay and we will sure visit rambas for a longer stay.
Thank you Rambas

Beautiful eco friendly lodge smack bang in the middle of the forest! Had an amazing time just chilling in the natural pool which was made by diverting a stream that flowed through the property. The only music we heard was the sound of the water, the chirping birds and the rustling of the leaves. Absolutely gorgeous place. The rooms and bathrooms were very clean and spacious. Rustic decor. The food was delicious. My kids has more than 2 servings! Service was great with a personal touch. So peaceful and tranquil. A must see! Not too far from Colombo either. We spent the day there, but wish we had more time to stay overnight. Definitely going back.

My wife came across this when we wanted to find somewhere to go as a break, but not very far from Colombo. What a find it was......we had the most wonderful experience from get-go. From getting the booking to whole time there everything was smooth and trouble free. Host was lovely, the caretakers were amazing and the estate manager was friendly and helpful.

It is in a lovely setting with a natural pool. The place was spacious, clean and very comfortable(Just what the doctor ordered....). We love nature and this ticked all the boxes.....so much so, i had a hard time getting my kids to come back home. I just wish we had more time to spend there......but a place i will visit again for sure.....specially since is so close to Colombo.

Only advise for people who want to visit, you need a 4x4 to get to the location(I mean a real 4x4 NOT the fancy looking but "no mustard" kind....Lol...!!) They have a pick up service and its best you get that from the collection point.
