Mel and Supun are a lovely, easy going couple who go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. The Cabana is perfect - tucked away down the back roads off the main road - a great place to escape the business of the main strip of Hikkaduwa. Breakfast was delicious - fresh fruit from the garden and traditional Sri Lankan fare prepared by Supun's mother. There is not much more to say about our experience staying at Dreamtime Cabana other than our expectations were exceeded. Would highly recommend!

Very cute and cosy airbnb in the middle of the jungle. For a real genuine Sri Lankan experience, go here! The hosts are amazing, just as the cooking of Supun's mom. They really try to make you feel at home and are always one phonecall or text away to help you out. Would highly recommend!

Supun and Mel are fab hosts and really go out of their way to make your trip memorable! Breakfast by Mum was mouth watering :) Their cabanas are a good spot to base yourself on the surf side of town, swimming is a little further up. Mel even provided my sunburnt companion with aloe Vera from the garden! Check out their cabanas when in town!

Though it was not that easy to find, we had a wonderful time at Dreamtime. Mel and Supun were very helpful, friendly and perfect hosts. We really liked the place, especially the garden where we had breakfast.

Mel and Supun were the perfect hosts and always went above and beyond to make us feel at home. The location is perfect - a nice, residential neighborhood 5 min from Narigama Beach, one of the quietest beaches in Hikkaduwa. The cabana itself is basic, but comfortable, and with the beautiful main lounge area just a short walk away, it had everything we needed. No hot water for showers, and no wi-fi in the cabana itself, but neither was a big deal for us. The included breakfast was amazing... definitely one of our favorite parts about our stay and Sri Lanka in general. All in all, the cabana is great, Mel and Supun are amazing people, and we would highly recommend Dreamtime to anyone.

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.
