Wilpattu – The Backwaters Lodge

Backwater Eco Lodge Wilpattu

Hospitality in the middle of nature

An urban living concept meets surrounded by nature. The Backwater Lodge is kind of a eco lodge and a great place to relax before of after the Wilpattu Park visit. It’s near the water where you can do a boat tour (it’s worth it), relax in a hammock or take a swim. The owner also takes care of the environment and protects the nature. You will find a lot of upcycling items like discharged pallets transformed in furniture. But the comfort is still very high standard.

Guest Reviews

Lovely resort on the banks of the river. Accommodation was in spacious converted containers.Steven from England
Backwaters is a great place, everyone is so friendly and helpful. This was the most interesting hotel we stayed at during our 16 days in Sri Lanka and it is truly unique and in my view must be the best location close to Wilpattu. James from USA

You should stay in this hotel if…

… you love nature and need a break from the busy cities. A perfect place to relax and enjoy.
