On our way to Tree House, we enjoyed a hot glass of belimal with jaggery. There was no name board at the main road to take the turn to the chalets, but anyone can use whatsapp location and find this property easily. Upon arrival we were served with a fresh welcome drink. The first scenery at the reception area is marvellous with the cold weather. The chalets were surrounded by nature and tastefully blend local architecture with contemporary design to envelop the guest with comfort and serenely.
Foods & Beverages
For the lunch we were served with Sri Lankan rice and curry. The foods were delicious with wide variety of curries. We loved beans curry as it looks so greenly, and the chicken curry was mouth-watering. For dessert we were served with fruit platters. The pumpkin soup before the dinner was a perfect match with the cold climate and we were served grilled chicken menu as the dinner. Curd and Tickle was the majorities selection as dinner desert. As the breakfast we selected English breakfast menu. There were limited varieties of foods but what they served us was delicious and we enjoyed the foods at Tree House Chalets.

The Chalets are spacious, clean and included everything we needed. The bedroom has doors that lead directly out onto the terrace. From this large terrace you can relax and admire the amazing views. The chalets consist of one large bedroom with floor to ceiling glass windows and doors that optimize the view of the surrounding wilderness. You can enjoy your meal being in kitchen with the same view through the Terrance. The chalet has a modern bathroom with toiletries.
The scenery in the lofted area is breath-taking and it can be used as a seating area and as well as a sleeping area. Our room had a very special equipment. With this astronomical telescope we enjoyed star gazing at night. Every second that we spent in this property brought us a new experience and it was filled with picturesque scenery. The atmosphere, weather, nature and everything make it an ideal setting for relaxation, meditation and inspiration. The atmosphere is cool and create the perfect setting for spending the day enjoying endless cups of tea on the terrace.
Things we Enjoyed
We enjoyed everything in Tree House Chalets starting from the first step to the time we left the property.
The property is surrounded by National Forest land. Hiking this beautiful area gives you a breath-taking views of hill lands of Sri Lanka specially the stunning waterfalls. The area is home to many species such as Monkeys, Peacocks, Porcupine, Pangolins, Wild Boar, and Sambar and Mouse deer, exotic Birds, and Butterflies. During our Hiking, near Surathali Ella, there was a dancing peacock, and this singled us that we are ahead of a rain. Down the hills, the lush green paddy fields dance to the cool breeze in the morning daylight. And there was a colourful rainbow which adds an additional colour to the mother nature.
- Bird’s Nest
This Bird’s Nest was not for the birds but for the guests to watch and enjoy the beauty of the nature from a bird’s eyes view. This was one of the best experiences during the stay at Tree House Chalet and you can the read books and relax in bird’s nest or hammock
There were plenty of game packs in the cupboard and unfortunately, we didn’t have enough time to try all of them as there were plenty of things to try within the day. In your stay, better keep some time to enjoy this as well.
