Stay closer to the nature & feel the difference - The closet accommodation to Sinharaja rain forest.
Rainforest Edge is the perfect hideout to enjoy your holiday in Sri Lankan traditional way with true Sri Lankan hospitality. You will be a part of our family, not just a guest at Rainforest Edge. Rainforest Edge is the perfect place to enjoy the hospitality of the village folks (who have a lifestyle of self sufficiency), in a natural setting ideal for nature lovers. We grow most of the fruits & vegetables served to you in our organic fruit & vegetable gardens inside the resort premises. Fruits & vegetables are grown with perfect harmony with the nature without adding any pesticides or chemical manure. You will enjoy a perfect blend of Sri Lankan traditional ethnic dishes made to your taste fresh out from our gardens.
Rainforest Edge is a unique experience that our guests enjoy during their stay with a local community sharing their habits & lifestyles. Your accommodation is well designed to suit your needs with en suite facilities, because we know better. Balance between ancient, traditional techniques & a modern comfort is the charm of these eco friendly rooms. The energy source is a unique combination of solar energy, mains electricity lanterns (lamps with Kerosene). We have given you the choice of using the light of the electric bulb or the lantern for reading or else to indulge in solar heated hot water shower. To keep the harmony with nature, rooms are not equipped with televisions or telephones. You will learn the art of living in the easy going way, gentle, relaxed & care free.

Sri Lanka has an ancient & varied cuisine with contrasting tastes, rich nutritional value influenced by its food culture that runs back to dozens of centuries. Food prepared for main restaurant & Ambalama (for snacks) has all the transparency. Most of the activities can be seen by the visitors. There will be Sri Lankan cookery lessons & demonstrations conducted by the villagers who are experts in traditional cooking. Menu is not complicated, the vegetable & fruits are grown in the Rainforest Edge organic farm, without any pesticides or chemical manure. We might be the only nature resort in Sri Lanka, where all dishes served are guaranteed of organic nature, because we grow our own supplies. It was the era long before colonialism that every villager cultivated their own supplies. Of course it is hard work.
The main restaurant is the ideal place to try out traditional Sri Lankan cuisine. Why compromise a 5 star hotel dinner, when we offer you a million stars dinner. Enjoy dining in a relaxed setting of our open air restaurant under a thatched roof with a spectacular view over mountains & serviced by our culinary staff who prepares our ethnic dishes combined with true Sri Lankan hospitality. Dining at Rainforest Edge will be a unique experience which you havent thought of. It may not be surprising, if we say what how we present this valuable experience before you arrive at Rainforest Edge.

Ambalama (snack house) is open from 07.00 am to 06.00 pm for Kevili (Sri Lankan snacks), herbal drinks, tropical fresh fruits & juices, tea/coffee and we are flexible enough for your special dietary requests.
