LUXURY BOUTIQUE HOTEL | FORREST VILLAS AND WATER CHALETS
Vil Uyana is in view of the Sigiriya rock fortress, on the flatlands that stretch to the west. The resort integrates into an ancient plan – a plan to irrigate, in the tradition of the Sinhala kings. The introduction of a wetland on reclaimed agricultural lands within the dry zone provides a unique backdrop for this exciting new property, inspired by local and rural traditions.
A private nature reserve provides a haven for wildlife in this peaceful and tranquil setting. The hotel is possibly the first in the world to construct a wetland system with lakes and reed beds to form a private nature reserve. This has allowed for the first time in Sri Lanka rooms built over water. Centred around small lakes and ponds are parklands and woods, designed for leisure; an extension of the ancient practice of planning gardens for pleasure.
A challenge has been overcome for the conversion of dry zone chena lands formed by slash & burn agriculture, to a seasonal wetland (land that is inundated by water for part of the year). The colonization of the new habitats by local fauna and flora has been accelerated by the planting of reed beds and groves of trees.
5 acres of land was used to re-grow paddy using traditional methods of farming and harvesting, providing a new and exciting feature. Rooms have been placed within the paddy fields, thereby giving the guest a unique opportunity of participating in both the farming and harvesting if they wished; yet another first in Sri Lanka! The regeneration of the forested groves creates a feeling of ultimate privacy and seclusion in the Forest Lodges, the largest of the Chalets.
The tastefully designed rooms boast space as its hallmark of luxury. Dine in the privacy of your room or ‘under the stars’ or simply relax and pamper yourself at the Island Spa with a range of treatments to choose from.
