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.
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.
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.

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!
All linen is provided.
Supun is a surf instructor and has an Australian surf instructor licence. We can organise surf lessons and packages to suit your ability. Be aware once you stand up on a wave it becomes addictive.
There is a guide in each cabana that provides an overview of your stay. Overall, please respect our space and the surrounding natural environment.
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.
