Boulder Garden Nature Resort
Ratnapura, Sri Lanka
A resort bordering the rainforest of Sinharaja, built by villagers, following the age-old tradition of building amongst rocks. Cement steps, sheltered by overhanging boulders and a waterfall, lead into the 15-acre complex. The resort includes 10 guest rooms, a reception, and main restaurant located in an open cave. Lush foliage, reflecting pools, open terraces, and verandas sheltered by cinnamon sticks, surround the structure. Rubble walls with inner cement bondage comprise the skeleton of the buildings, while timber logs carry the weight of the roof.
