Experience a unique stay in Dreamtime Del Cabana, one of three cabanas built with nature in mind. Have a dip in our saltwater pool or take a two minute stroll to the beach and return to your cozy cabana surrounded by a tropical garden. Our space is where honest hospitality, nature and an authentic experience combine.

The space

Our aim: To create a relaxed and homely space in Hikkaduwa for our guests, we have built around the trees and have focused on preserving and adding to the natural environment. Follow the reclaimed wood pathway to one of three freestanding cabanas. The 'Del' cabana is named after our favourite tree in the garden, the Del (breadfruit) tree.

Relax on your terrace and take in the tropical surroundings. Our garden is home to an abundance of wildlife: keep an eye out for native birds, squirrels, lizards, monkeys and more! Listen to the birdsong and branches swaying in the wind. When the swell is big you can even hear waves crashing in the distance. There are so many plant varieties that we have lost count. Jungle plants are thriving and the bamboo tree is the centrepiece of our grounds.

Enjoy a complimentary Sri Lankan breakfast in our quaint cafe prepared by Mum each morning.

The cabana design is open plan with a comfortable spring mattress, ceiling fan and mosquito net. The bathroom is fitted with a hot water shower and more plants of course!

Our cabana is the perfect place to relax and unwind and an ideal base to explore all that beautiful Hikkaduwa has to offer. Enjoy a 15 minute beach walk or 3 minute tuk-tuk ride to the main surf point. Get close to wild turtles, snorkel, dive, swim and explore local Hikkaduwa town.

Guest access

Guests can feel free to wander around the garden or chill by the pool.

Guests also have access to the refrigerator in our kitchen and are able to refill drink bottles as we have free filtered water available.

Interaction with guests

We are a sociable couple who live on site. When we are not out and about you will most likely find us by the pool. We are happy to answer any questions and will do our best to make your stay pleasant and memorable. We arrange tours and are full of advice on the the what to do and where to eat in the area.

Other things to note

Please note this is a unique space immersed in nature and not your average hotel. If you are adventurous and a nature lover you will love our place! Our garden is home to lizards, squirrels and other creatures endemic to a tropical environment. This is part of the experience of staying with us and we hope you enjoy it!

BEST SPOT EVER! Dreamtime lives up to every expectation and was literally exactly what my boyfriend and I were looking for (and one of the main reasons we came to Sri Lanka!) Supun & Mel are the sweetest hosts and we're incredibly helpful all the time. One of my favorite parts of the entire trip was being surprised with a new homemade Sri Lankan breakfast each morning and chatting with the other guests. Book this place, it will be one of the best vacation decisions you ever make! Thanks Dreamtime!

Really nice place to stay. Supun and Mel are great hosts. The cabanas, common area and the garden are a piece of art. Dreamtime is nicely located in a quiet spot of Hikkaduwa, with the beach around the corner and a walk or 5min tuk tuk ride to the shops and restaurants. Surfing lesson with Supun was great fun. Breakfasts and curries are delicious. Highly recommended.

This is the best place to stay in Hikkaduwa, so don't look any further! The cabanas are amazing with gorgeous garden/outdoor bathrooms and big beds set in a lovely tropical garden. Feels more like Thailand than most of the accommodation you seem to get in Sri Lanka. The breakfasts are lovely and Mel and Supen do everything they can to help you out. The cabanas are at the quieter end of Hikkaduwa beach which is much much nicer then the busier end. You can be on the beach in a few minutes walk with a few smaller cafes and great swimming spots, or walk into the busier area of town in about 15 mins, and further up for the reef and snorkeling. We spent a while just hanging out in the gardens of the cabanas away from the heat and slight hustle of the main areas. The cabanas are amazing value for money too. Thanks Mel and Supen!

We spend three wonderful days with Supun & Mel. And we wished it could have been more. We felt very welcomed and secure in their little tropical paradise. Their cabanas were our most beautiful stay at Sri Lanka, you get there everything you need and some more. The meals were perfect, let mum cook dinner for you, she is magical in kitchen. Breakfast was enormous and every day different (we had hoppers with sini sambol and puttu with tree honey, just perfect!) We can recommend you staying with Supun and Mel, their open hearts will enrich your SriLanka experience and you will probably win new friends!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Mel & Supun. They went above and beyond what would have been expected by hosts and for that, we are very grateful. Our cabana was beautiful and exactly as shown in their photos. The outdoor feel of the bathroom was definitely a highlight for us as it was so tastefully done. There were small design features that really added a boutique feel to our cabana, and a nod to Geoffrey Bawa style living. Breakfast was always a treat, we wished we could hang around to watch Ammi make some of her delicious curries. Thank you for having us Mel & Supun and we hope to be back with the new baby in tow ;)

We are an Australian/Sri Lankan couple who share a mutual enjoyment for the beach, nature and travel. We want to provide our guests with a space which they want to return to and tell their friends and family about the positive experience they have had.
We have lived in Australia for the past two years although it seems that we couldn't stay away from one island in particular...Sri Lanka. This country truly is our favourite place in the world and we want to give our guests the real Sri Lankan experience.
