We are nature lovers who create a sanctuary for humans & animals by planting trees to restore nature. Our place is surrounded by rainforest with wild animals and lots of peace for meditation and yoga by an ancient, majestic banyan tree and river with pools.
Our main goal is to protect the environment and save the rainforest through reforestation. Through our guests stay, we support this project, raise awareness for environmental issues like waste management through reduction of plastics.
We far away from the main road and therefore our place is very quiet and cosy. The Bungalow on top offers great views over the valley with tee plantations and some remaining ancient rain forrest. A small river with natural pools invites one for a refreshing bath when it's hot. It surrounds half of our property of six acres hill land and we run our water supply from it.
The private rooms are spacious with luxury kingsize and double beds and private bathrooms with hot water. All is just recently build and therefore clean and new.
Due to the mild climate we don't need any Aircondition and have no mosquitos at nighttime.
We can prepare breakfast, lunch and dinner on demand. We are Vegetarians and cook Sri Lankan Rice&Curry as well as western dishes. Please note, that we only prepare vegetarian dishes.
A transport can be arranged from Deniyaya town/bus station or anywhere else to the river near our property by tuktuk (350 Rupee) or by car if you come in a group. To access our property a small river has to be crossed followed by a 20 minute walk uphill. Most guests enjoy this walk because they travel with a backpack and love to hike anyway. But if you need help with your lagguage we can arrange a porter service (300 Rupee p. bag) if you let us know in advance so don't hesitate to ask.
Interaction with guests
Our team is mostly around in case guests need something but we are happy to receive food orders as soon as possible since some dishes like Rice & Curry need some preparation time.
As well as organising tours to the Rainforest Reserve needs some advance notice to make sure you get the best guides.
We cook freshly local and western dishes like vegetarian Rice and Curry, Breakfast, Pasta and much more for reasonable prices. Since we are health conscious, we only use healthy ingridients (no MSG, only pure and natural vegg and fruit).
If the time allows it, we love to show guests our Sanctuary, explain about the nature plus how we are contributing to save the rainforest. Just let us know if you have any wishes and be open about things we can improve.
Other things to note
Many guests plan to visit the Sinharaja Rainforest Reserve which is about 40 minutes by Tuktuk away from us. We arrange tours and work with certified, knowledgeable guides who love to share their knowledge about flora, fauna and wildlife.
Please reserve your tour as soon as possible to make sure you get the best rainforest guides.
