The closest hotel to the start point for the Adams Peak/Siri Pada hill climb, the Wathsala Inn is a cozy family run guesthouse with over 20 years of hospitality expertise. Sri Pada is said to be the location where the Buddha’s footprint lies on the summit, with Muslims and Christians claiming the footprint to be that of Adam. Four poster colonial style canopy beds as well as modern beds feature in all 20 guestrooms. Tiled and wooden flooring, attached bathrooms with hot water, wooden furniture, balconies and standard amenities complete the rooms. The lounge area provides panoramic views of verdant forests surrounding the mountains, while the Kelani river meanders calmly right beside the in-house restaurant, serving appetizing local and western meals. Unwind with a drink of choice at the bar and pub. Relax by the pool or dip in.
