EKHO Lake House, Polonnaruwa

Rooted deep in the heritage-gardens of Polonnaruwa is a place of splendour and languor: ‘EKHO Lake House, Polonnaruwa’.

Best Known For

Once the Queen of England’s preferred holiday retreat, the ‘EKHO Lake House, Polonnaruwa’ shows a majestic transformation of an 1800s British circuit bungalow. Planted stunningly on the shores of the vast Parakrama Samudra Reservoir, the backwater hideaway mixes 21st century luxury with mesmerizing hints of its former life.

The Experience

Dressed in aesthetically-pleasing hues, the lavish rooms are designed around views of the Parakrama Samudra Reservoir and intriguing ancient ruins. Certain rooms open onto verandas and garden terraces which lap up views of the lake waters. The Queen of England’s place of sojourn has been converted into a Jacuzzi-detailed grand suite, where Tudor style blends with authentic Sri Lankan motifs.

Poised over the lake waters, the ‘Rasamusu’ serves delightful culinary offerings. The ‘Madura Saloon’ shakes up Margaritas while the ‘Alindaya’ glasses out exotic fruit juices. An infinity pool savours views of the vast waters, offering scenic and sunny respite.

Around and About

Nestled in the back-of-the-beyond, Polonnaruwa’s ancient kingdomscapes have been declared a world heritage site by UNESCO. The elaborately-carved stone structure of Polonnaruwa Vatadage, elevated stone platform of Nissanka Latha Mandapa and rock temple of Gal Vihara are some evocative attractions to visit.

Laze in the terrace with eyes dreamily wandering the blue waters of the ancient lake; what a hypnotic moment?
