Bird Watching
This place is a bird watcher's paradise. Even in the relatively small space of 25 acres, a total of 138 bird species have been identified. Indeed, bird watching enthusiasts claim that a visit to Habarana is a must for any self-respecting ornithologist. Of the 138 species identified to date, some are endemic to Sri Lanka and two are globally threatened species. Take your bird checklist and go with your guide, either at 6.30 a.m. or 4.30 p.m. and it is guaranteed that you will have your fill of birds. Forget the trails, there are birds all around. They'll fly around as you have you morning coffee or as you walk to your room.

Bike rides/hikes
Mix exercise and discovery and you get exhilaration. There are several trails to pick from, all of which will take you through villages, by reservoirs and give you splendid landscapes to meditate on. You will not come across wild elephants, have no fear. But you will most probably encounter other kinds of wild life such as monkeys and monitor lizards, perhaps some reptiles and definitely birds and butterflies. Get a picnic basket and take it from there.

Entertainment and recreation
If bike rides, hikes and bird-walks are not enough exercise, you could make use of the tennis courts and the pool to work away those extra calories. Live entertainment is provided every evening by the poolside by way of cultural shows, magic shows, acrobat shows etc. A live band performs every night. Poolside functions include barbecue nights on the terrace.

Herbal medicine centre
Talk to the resident Ayurvedic physician and work out a schedule for treatment designed to give yourself that extra healthy tone. Massages, steam baths, facials and other kinds of treatment are available as per your requirement.

The nice thing about the restaurant is that it is open to the reservoir. If you want to be more proximate, you could just step outside into the spacious garden and sample what the kitchen serves. And they do know how to pamper their guests. All meals have a combination of international and Sri Lankan cuisine guaranteed to satisfy the wishes of the most demanding stomach.

Many guests choose Habarana to tie their nuptial knots. Traditional Sri Lankan weddings are arranged upon requests. With the lake as background, under the shade of massive and ancient trees, and the music of the wind in the leaves, there's no place more natural to have your wedding.
