Sri Lanka’s fabulously exotic KumbukRiver hailed among world’s best eco resorts
The DailyFT reports that KumbukRiver “has been nominated continuously by the World Travel Awards since it carried the travel Oscar as the world’s leading eco-lodge in 2008”.
This Lankan gem is ranked among world’s top 10 most unusual resorts, an idyllic 16-acre hideout on the banks of a river in Buttala, which borders our famed Yala National Park.
Its most iconic attraction is a three-story-high elephant with sleeping accommodation, plus a luxurious tree house, a two-decker built around two trees with a floor-to-ceiling glass wall facing the river.
Says the Daily FT: “The air-conditioned room which has a plush bathroom and all five-star amenities is popular among visitors from around the world who wants to enjoy nature but with superior comforts.
“KumbukRiver isn’t just about unique architecture and a heavenly habitat. KumbukRiver racks up some of the best guest reviews on popular travel sites, thanks to its mandate on giving guests a truly authentic experience.”
Visitors can explore the resort’s 16-acre river-front nature enclave, swim in the river bath, catch some fish, go bird watching, and enjoy a full menu of Sri Lankan and international cuisine. What’s not to like!
