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.

The space

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.

Guest access

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.

If you are seeking for peace and calm, if you are a nature lover and not afraid of the jungle, if some tiny bit of you is somehow spiritual, then this is the perfect place to stay for you. Sam and Karina are very caring, as well as great cookers. We can see that they are dedicated to their project, replanting rainforest and living in harmony with what is surrounding. They also host a fluffy cat family that will conquer your heart ! Not to mention two happy dogs :) The jungle also has a lot to offe : Fireflies, squirrels, chipmunks, eagles, monkeys, lizards, and a great variety of insects that are fascinating to observe in their natural state. One can only appreciate what is offered here : find inner peace in the heart of the jungle. You have to deserve it though : cross a river by foot, hike for 20 minutes and there you are. If you can, you should take a bag pack ;) Now we know were to come to meet ourselves again.

Wir haben zwei Übernachtungen bei Sam&Karina verbracht. Die Gastgeber sind sehr liebevoll und nett. Die Unterkunft liegt abseits der Hauptstraße und ist über einen 15 minütigen Weg zu erreichen. Die Aussicht von unserer Terrasse war toll, das Zimmer in einem sehr guten Zustand. Frühstück, Lunch und Dinner kann vor Ort über eine kleine Karte bestellt werden. Auch leckere frische Fruchtsäfte werden angeboten. Wir waren insgesamt sehr zufrieden und können diese Unterkunft für jeden Naturliebhaber nur wärmstens weiter empfehlen. Wir hatten übrigens eine Sinharaja Rainforest Tour über Karina gebucht. Sehr toll!
