About Kumbuk River Resort

Sleep inside a 40ft Elephant!

KumbukRiver is a 16-acre oasis nestled on a resplendent corner of Sri Lanka’s south-east.  Made famous by its massive 2-story primary villa in the shape of an elephant, this eco-lodge is situated on the banks of a lively river on the edge of Yala, Sri Lanka’s premier wildlife sanctuary.
While you can sleep in the elephant’s belly, the resort also features two other chalets for larger groups. Small groups are have exclusive use by reserving the entire resort.  Only a maximum of 12 guests are allowed in order to maintain its high standards in an eco context.

The beautiful surroundings, the river and the unique facilities of the lodge invite visitors to privacy to become at one with nature.  The lodge is conceptually structured so as to allow visitors a unique experience where they can enjoy a memorable holiday without the environment-damaging facets of life in the city. Some may leave wondering if they really need electricity again. Such is the beauty and setting of this idyllic eco hideout.
