Illuks is 8 acres of forest 3400 feet above sea level.

There is a main house perfect for a cozy retreat away from the city hub.

Plus two camping grounds if you're feeling a little more adventurous.

40 minutes from Kandy.

The space
Illuks is sheltered by forest, veiled from the world that surrounds us. It has a main house that can fit upto six people. The house comes with it's own bathroom, kitchen and lounge areas. Illuks was uniquely designed and has a really nice rustic vibe about it to make you feel right at home.

There are two camp grounds inside the Illuks property for those with an adventurous spirit. They are big, spacious and covered by a canopy of trees. The camp grounds also come with their own outdoor bathrooms. The tents that Illuks provide can fit upto four people, you're welcome to bring your own even.

The Illuks property has many spots including a beautifully aged ruin which was once a sacred shrine. This area is the perfect spot for some yoga or contemplation if you're ever in the mood for a spiritual journey.

There is also a vegetable garden for your perusal and free-flowing ponds of water that give Illuks its special touch of natural beauty.

Food prepared by our cooks are made with ingredients that are locally sourced. Please let us know beforehand on your dietary needs so we can prepare for you. Meat is scarce at Illuks but will be made available if you give us fair warning.

Laggala, Central Province, Sri Lanka

Rattota, the nearest town, is nearly 19KM from Illuks.

Mini World's End is only 2.1KM and a great option if you're looking for a hike. It's also a must-see place in Sri Lanka.

You can also take a 60m walk through Pitawala Pathana, a unique grassland in the Knuckles mountain range.

Or head down to Riverstone to enjoy the view!
