to feel space, tranquility and nature...
Nestled in the middle of a large lush garden with sprawling trees and picturesque scenery, our villa is only a 15 minutes drive from Galle Town, the most well-known coastal city in Southern Sri Lanka. Deliberately designed to provide ample space and relaxed privacy for its guests, this is a newly- restored 18th century two-storied building which offers two large suites, each with a private swimming pool and a bath tub. The main house is surrounded by spacious verandahs opening out onto the terraced garden which gently slopes away from the house. Although hidden away, the ingenious planning of the original 18th century original owner (who's said to be a supplier of material to the Dutch Fortress construction) means that the position of building provides almost a lookout over the surrounding area. This suite -- Village Suite -- is a two roomed unit with a balcony overlooking the village. Surrounding jungle mountains are visible from the pool and faces west. The bedroom is air conditioned. Original old building was sympathetically restored in keeping with the history of this very old building, but with a modern emphasis on comfort, space and connection to nature. In a continuation of its heritage & is decorated with antique furniture from the Dutch period including large four poster beds. Time stands still as you enjoy the peaceful comfort and understated luxury of the rooms and the simple pleasures of being close to nature. Alternatively, Galle Town and the famous Dutch Fortress are easily close enough for exploring, shopping and dining. The popular and renowned Unawatuna and Hikkaduwa beach is only 20 minutes away. (Please note that given its large balconies, staircases, and open swimming pool on the first floor, we regret that it is not able to accept guests with small children for safety reasons.) The famous "The Lighthouse Hotel" -- a masterpiece by the world renown Architect, Geoffrey Bawa -- and the beautiful beach just 10 minutes away. Wifi Meals can be ordered or a cook can be hired by prior arrangement. Breakfast included in the rates
Galle Town and the famous Dutch Fortress are easily close enough for exploring, shopping and dining -- 15 minutes by tuk tuk. The popular and renowned Unawatuna and Hikkaduwa beach is only 20 minutes away.
  • An oasis in the middle of nature. We had a huge room with a view of the sunrise. Just beautiful. In addition, the private pool with access from the bathroom left nothing to be desired.

  • The place of Sumudu & Denish is amazing. Densih helped us with the transfer from the airport after our arrival. Everything went completely smooth. The place itself was beyond everything we have expected. From the small private plunge you have a view through coconut and mango trees. The place offers a living room, a spacious veranda and a nice sleeping room. In short words if you want to stay in Galle, stay at their place you will never regret it.

  • Dinesh and Sumudu's place is gorgeous! Lots of space and it's clean and designed well. Swimming pool is amazing! Their family is sweet and warm welcoming. Dinesh was super friendly and helped with all questions we had. Also we were blown away by Sri Lankan breakfasts cooked by a nice lady. Also sometimes someone played by the piano La-la land theme in the evening. Such a romantic atmosphere! It was such a pleasure to stay in this place :) We enjoyed every minute spent in this lovely house. Extremely recommend!

  • A quiet, spacious and wonderful place in the nature where you can relax! The hosts are so friendly and helpful with everything! Was a wonderful time to end our trip in Sri Lanka!

  • The apt was not so easy to find but Sumudu gave our driver precise instructions so that we could get to our paradise destination quite quickly. We were warmly welcomed with cookies and a drink. What was somehow not so clear to us is that we had 2 rooms. A master bedroom with bath and shower and a "relax room" also with bath and connection to the pool. It was really unique. The house of the two is incredibly large and beautiful! We felt very very comfortable and the breakfast was amazing! The two also had their own tuk tuk driver, which explained the way home. We wrote a what's app to Dinesha or Sumudu and a short time later the driver was there. Very nice and careful driving TukTuk driver We can only recommend this accommodation to everyone, it is pure luxury and relaxation. Thank you very much we will be back!

    Viktoria2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • This stunning old property, restored by the owners and surrounded by trees, is amazing. Dinesh and Samudu couldn’t be more helpful, the breakfast is great and the pool at the back of the room is a very nice touch! We hope to return!

    Andrew2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed as a couple for 5 nights in this charming property. When we arrived we were more than overwhelmed by the beauty of this property. The location is just outside of Galle, in the middle of a tropical garden with a variety of animals, plant fruits and spices. It was a pleasure for us to walk through the garden with Dinesh and Sumudu and to admire the biodiversity. The accommodation is many times more beautiful than in the photos. The private pool is wonderfully cool (the pool is actually on the roof). The room had an air conditioning system, but we hardly used it because the temperature was very pleasant. Dinesh is a superhost who really organizes everything, transfer from the airport to Katagerama, Tuck Tuck everywhere in the vicinity, to the beach .... The breakfast was sensationally delicious and every day there was something different ... delicious, Dinesh tried very hard to serve us something different for dinner ... there was absolutely nothing that could have been better .. many thanks for that wonderful days with you .. with kind regards Angelika and Klaus

  • Host was lovely, he helped us arrange transport easily and gave us local tips. He even provided us breakfast to go for our early train ride one morning.

    Emma2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Great little place. Champs dad was brilliant. Champ organised a taxi from the airport, and was great at keeping communicating with us. We only stayed one night and wished we’d stayed longer - just for the hospitality. The pool is very nice, room great, and thanks for giving us a fantastic take away breakfast for the early morning train. Highly recommended.

    Patrick2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Loved Champ’s parents place - the garden is amazing and the room ever nicer than in the pictures. The Sri Lankan breakfast was also one of the best we’ve had here! Really recommend this as a little oasis to stay slightly out of the city centre when visiting Kandy.

    Anna2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • The room was very nice and it was great to have a fridge to keep cool water in and a way to make extra coffee/tea. Hosts were very friendly and accommodating. Breakfasts were delicious.

    Elizabeth2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful house with nice host. Bed is big and confortable. You have to walk 15-20 min or take a tuk tuk to reach the center . But the distance is not a problem. Just sad that due to the oasis inside we did not have lot of sun around the pool.

    Oriane2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • Loved our stay here!!! An absolute oasis in busy Kandy with monkeys and birds in the beautiful garden and the prettiest bedroom we stayed in during our trip. Its a short drive into the centre of Kandy, but having seen how hectic it is, we were glad to have a bit of calm. The very best thing about this gem of a place however is Champ’s dad, such a friendly and knowledgeable man! We were only here for one afternoon / evening and were a bit unsure of the best plan. He arranged the perfect itinirary (gardens, a wander around the lake, kandyan dancing, temple visit and a great dinner spot) and booked our Tuk Tuk driver Gehan who picked us up and dropped us off for the whole day for a very reasonable fixed price. He was bang on time, every single pick up, and answered all of our questions about the city. If you want to get through traffic in a hurry - Gehan is your man. He took us to a lovely lookout point on our way home at the end of the day. Champ’s dad was also brilliant at giving advice for our train to Ella the next day, arranged for Gehan to take us to the station and packed us a lovely breakfast for our trip. Would recommend to anyone looking for a very warm welcome, and a bit of peace away from the city.

    Jen2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect peaceful retreat in chaotic kandy. Great and very helpful host with amazing authentic and filling breakfast!

    Harriet2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you so much, we had a lovely stay in Kandy. they helped arrange transport with our trip and with recommendations as to where to eat and drink. The place really did feel like a paradise within the city!

  • My third time staying at the Charming White Room - the hospitality is wonderful and is always the same. Friendly host who is quick to respond and is flexible for any additional requests - I loved staying there and will be back there soon. The place is more like a home to me now. I would highly recommend the guest house for anybody travelling to stay in a private place where you are surrounded by other tourists - cozy and warm house - you can be yourself - solitude. Close proximity to city centre and very convenient to be in and out for shopping or on other trips.

    Abdulla2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Superb room, very clean and very cozy. Really a favorite! Very caring host, who really puts you at ease. In a beautiful district, we are calm while being a few minutes by tuk tuk from places to visit. If you go through Colombo I can only advise you to come and stay with Gayathri

    Chloé2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful stay!

    Mayyanna2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Very much nice place to stay with comfort and good hospitality! It's truly a value for money experience! If you are a creative and well read person this is a place for you! Very clean, peaceful place closer to public transport, good hotels! So Gayathri's stay gave us a very good start for holiday in Sri Lanka! Thank you!

    Sajjala2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved our stay here! Our taxi was kindly organised from the airport to the Airbnb resulting in a seamless late night arrival. The room was cosy and cute. Further, we were cooked a nourishing breakfast when we woke the next day. Had lovely chats with the host. Highly recommend. Above and beyond.

    Daisy2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • Very Nice - in a quiet area. This way you get to see the greener side of Colombo.

    Jesper2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Gayathri's lovely home is in a quiet and paceful neighborhood. However the hustle and bustle of the city center is just a short tuk tuk ride away. The house itself is bright, clean and very comfortable. Gayathri was extremely helpful in giving me the confidence to navigate around Colombo, after an international flight. This was a great introduction to Colombo. Thanks so much, Gayathri!

We enjoyed a hot shower and comfortable bed at the end of our adventure packed days. The breakfast was also a delight to enjoy in the morning. We would recommend staying here!

    Melinda2019-12-13T00:00:00Z
  • Buddhi and his cousin are super kind and relaxed! This place is close to downtown, close to nature. The weather however makes such a difference. Our first day it was super misty so we couldn’t see anything and it was cold (bring something warm when you go in low season) but the next day it was sunny and we were surprised with the a beautiful view of the mountains en waterfalls. On our last day the road to Yala was blocked and Buddhi’s cousin drove us to Yala via a different route in a massive van which was awesome!

    Amber2019-10-31T00:00:00Z
  • Friendly staff, incredible view and great food! Perfect place to relax in Ella.

    Lorna2019-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful view over the mountains and waterfall. Next door is a large hotel in renovation / construction, view of Little Adams Peak a bit limited, but still beautiful. Surrounded by nature sounds. Walk to the center of Ella 15min downhill / 20min uphill. To the train station way over the rails about 10 minutes.

Watching the mischievous monkeys was a bonus! Transport and whale watching arranged by Phil. Highly recommended! Thanks Phil all the best, Rosemary and Rob

    Ailis2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • This is a must recommend place. The staff was top notch and they were able to help me out before and during my stay. Through them I was able to arrange transport from Colombo to Mirissa and also booked other activities through them. The place is in an excellent location, only a short walk to the beach and great restaurants. The room was spacious and the property was perfect for relaxing. My only regret is that I didn't book a longer stay. If and when I come back to Mirissa, I will stay here again!

  • Champ’s parents who manage the place are just wonderful! Incredible breakfasts every morning and helpful tips on transport and site-seeing. Incredibly hospitable, generous and kind family. We had a wonderful stay and particularly enjoyed the rooftop pool. Thanks for everything.

    Olivia2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • It is a wonderful villa in the middle of a beautiful garden. The pool is nice. The hosts are very-very kind and helpful. The villa is closed to Kandy Lake. There are pharmacy, post office and groceries in the near.

    Monika2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • What a brilliant stay! Champ's instructions/directions and contact leading up to our stay was brilliant! We were allowed to check in at anytime the day of arrival which really helped! Champ's dad was second to none in helping us out, advising us and giving us handy tips for our stay. The breakfast that he laid on each morning was amazing! He even allowed us to try some true Sri Lankan snacks! The only thing i would say is that it was a little noisy from the road (as there were roadworks) going on when we were up on the roof/plunge pool area, but that's just life! We were very happy with our accommodation and the location was about a 10 min tuk tuk ride into Kandy which Champ's Dad arranged for us whenever we wanted to go into Kandy. Brilliant stay!

    Michelle2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Champs place. Loved all the extra features - plunge pool, super comfortable bed, plush towels & great kitchen facilities. His parents were so friendly and couldn’t do enough to ensure we had a great time in Kandy. Thank you Champ. Regards, peter and Caroline.

    Caroline2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Great space outside of the hustle and bustle of Kandy. There are still roadworks outside so it’s not quite as peaceful as it could be, but they are due to be finished soon. The room is very comfortable, with a lovely bed. We loved sitting up by the pool in the refreshing breeze. Champ’s Dad is a wonderful man. Really interesting to talk to & he organised drivers for us all the time. He also made yummy breakfasts. With the roadworks it’s impossible to walk into Kandy at the moment, but cheap to get a tuk tuk. A memorable visit.

    Tracey2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing airbnb experience. Champs communications were really quick. Place was amazing and roof top area nice to relax. Breakfast and hospitality provided was brilliant along with local knowledge provided. Our days out were all organised with our tuk tuk driver who was great in taking us to excursions and whatever we wanted. Highly recommend

    George2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • What a place! Everything from the delicious breakfast, quiet location and beautiful apartment made for a great stay. It’s the perfect place to come back to and enjoy a beer on the terrace after a busy day exploring.

    Sophie2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • First class communication from Champ, who is in the UK, and amazing hospitality from his mother and father, who run the place. The room and pool couldn't be better. Can't rate it highly enough!

  • Beautiful place with a personal touch from the hosts. View is Magnificent, at night you’ll hear the nature as if you were sleeping under the stars! Amenities are basic, but trust me you don’t need much in such a place. Extremely clean and tidy, elegant yet luckily doesnt give you the hotel vibe. This place is managed by a beautiful, kind family whose members offered us assistance basically on everything we needed and more. Their son provided us with recommendation on where and when (!) to go, father told us where to buy the best arrack (and drove us to that place!). Food cooked by mother and grandmother is outstanding - they even shared with us some recipes and showed us their beautiful fruit garden (they live 1 minute away from the property)! From all our stays in Sri Lanka we will remember this one as the most magical place.

    Maria2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Great place. Everything spot on.

    Sashika2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • The best thing on this accomodation was the family taking care of it. They were so kind and helpful, they arranged trip, lift and cooked delicious breakfast and dinner for us and were always smiling! We also liked the lokation away from busy citycentre. We can absolutely recommend!

    Anna2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Situated in a quiet corner in Ella Villa Skygrazer was the perfect place to break away and recharge our batteries from the first leg of our trip that we spent in Galle. Ella is truly a magical place and Villa Skygrazer is one of the reasons for it. The villa creates the feeling that you are alone in the forest. Such a great space to unwind for a bit. By the end of our stay I was wishing that I could have stayed longer. The hospitality was on another level. I have never experienced such pure kindness. We ordered a chicken curry for dinner and it was AMAZING! We received some helpful advice and assistance with getting around Ella from our hosts as well. I can definitely see myself staying here again soon be it with my boyfriend or even just coming for a solo trip.

    Simone2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • We love staying at Villa Skygazer. Not only was it a perfect starting point to see all of the beautiful sights in Ella and the surroundings, the family took so good care of us. The house was beautiful and we loved sitting at the terrace and just listening to the sounds. Everything was good, and we also enjoyed the delicious food that Harshans family prepared for us. Thank you for everything - we will be back! Anders and Kathrine

    Anders Wærling2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • The design of the house is beautiful, surrounded by glass, That is, the house is not completely enclosed, and the beams from the outside are not sealed. I am afraid that something will come in at night. The location is slightly biased, and it is not particularly convenient to go out, The host was very welcoming and the breakfast and dinner were very hearty! If you like to be close to nature, this is a very good choice!

    2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Loved this place! Harshan and his family were so accommodating, we had a brilliant stay in Ella!

    Thibault2019-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • A very beautiful place in the mountains surrounded by nature. The staff is polite and can feed you a delicious local dinner for little money. There were only pleasant impressions.

  • Really outstanding. Ben has though of everything and really made us feel welcome, comfortable and part of. I wouldn't recommend anywhere else to stay in hiriketiya. Thoroughly thought out and brilliantly executed.

    Tom2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic villa very close to the beach but away from any noise! Hiriketiya is our favourite place in Sri Lanka. Ben and Tenille were very quick to respond and were very helpful. Samee who looks after the place is so friendly and was extremely helpful. Cracked my surf board and he immediately cane round to help me get it fixed. Definitely recommend!

    Bertie2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful place. The house is located near two beaches. The owner is very welcoming. Very quiet and peaceful place. I didn’t want to leave!

    Анна2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Great clean place in perfect location. Samee and Ben were great hosts and gave us tones of local tips as well as places to travel throughout the country. They made our time there feel very welcome and everything ran smoothly. We highly recommend and would love to come back to visit one day. Hiriketiya is amazing. Cheers

    Adam2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Sukha House was just as I expected. The pictures show the place perfectly - it’s decorated stylishly and has all the amenities you might need to make your stay comfortable. The bedrooms are simple and comfortable with air con and mozzie nets - not that we really need them. The lounge is a great place to relax after a long day at the beach - I love the hanging chair! The pool is just an extra touch that made the house that much better. Samee who checked us in and out is an absolute sweetheart and was very responsive on WhatsApp. Thanks for having us and I can’t wait to come back!!

    Harri2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent stay. Ben is a legend.

    Dale2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Where to start? Absolutely amazing stay. The location is awesome, just a few hundred meters from the beach. Ben and Samee welcomed us with open arms and were gracious with their time if needed. For Airbnb hosts they were so readily available with any questions we had along the way. We’ve never experienced this from any other Airbnb hosts, normally we are just given a code/keys and take care of ourselves. It was definitely a welcomed luxury to have our own private plunge pool and outdoor entertaining space, something we have found hard to find on our Sri Lankan journey within this price-range. Samee comes daily to clean the outside areas and take care of the pool, however leaves us to enjoy our privacy for the rest of the day. For an old renovated village house in the deep south of Sri Lanka, the house was clean, tidy and well-appointed. Hiriketiya has a great restaurant and cafe scene, by far the best along the south coast. We loved having brunch out everyday. The beaches are beautiful, Pehibiya Beach being our favourite for family time and Hiriketiya for surfing. It you’re after a very chilled, relaxed vacation where you will be left alone to enjoy, this is definitely the place to stay. We can’t wait to come back next year!

    Rhonda2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • Ben and Tennelle’s place is in an incredible spot in Hiriketiya, we loved our time there. Although the place is not as clean (mainly bathroom) as photos make it out to be which is a tad disappointing as it is quite pricey. But the location and space definitely make up for it.

Within less than 20 mins of travelling you will find many casual and fine dining options as well as a turtle hatchery. We provide guests with a list of local eateries, attractions and useful information.
  • We had a wonderful time here! Chi was always smiling, helpful and friendly. And a brilliant cook of Sri Lankan food for us (and less spicy versions for the slightly fussier kids). Thank you!

    Hayden2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • Going to the end of the world to relax in a nest called “UNAKANDA” perched in the jungle of Sri Lanka Southern Province, is a haven of peace and beauty to discover. This pretty house with all the comfort assures you a tranquility near an overflowing swimming pool overhanging the sea on the horizon, without forgetting the tasty dishes which are served to you by THI and SUJEEVA rivaling the local restaurants by their flavor. The discovery of this magnificent country with the help of MANOJ, THI and SUJEEVA to guide you in your stay, is very reassuring. Many thanks to SHAR and TIM, supported by the kindness and dedication of MANOJ, THI and SUJEEVA who made us discover their beautiful region. Three Marseillais on holiday.

    Bruno2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • This is a perfect little oasis tucked high up on a hill overlooking the Ocean. The photos are accurate, two beautifully appointed bedrooms and a small infinity pool were perfect for my family for our three night stay. Unawatuna has developed rapidly and so we were happy to have a retreat away from the main drag, hotels and restaurants. The best part of our stay by far were the staff, the manager Manoj was so kind and prompt in helping with our every question and request. But Chi the houseboy and cook was the shining star, his beautiful smile, chill vibe and great cooking would make anyone feel at home and want to return.

    Miles2019-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay . Chirath’s was very helpful and cooked us Delicious meals . I would recommend this house to anyone visiting Srilanka. Romila

    Romila2019-12-12T00:00:00Z
  • Unakanda is gorgeous, as we knew it would be. Chi and the staff at the villa were outstanding. We ate at the villa a few times because Chi was such a great cook. We really did have a wonderful break.

    Amanda2019-12-03T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place! Very comfortable and cozy, close to the beach. The villa is fully consistent with the photo. We are grateful for the hospitality and helpfulness of the villa staff, for excellent breakfasts and dinners!

    Анна2019-11-05T00:00:00Z
  • What an incredible stay! An absolute piece of paradise in Unawatuna. Manoj and Chi were such an incredible team that made us feel so welcome and at home. Chi's cooking is superb. Do not waste your time and eat elsewhere!! He even gave us a casual cooking class and shared the magic of his recipes. He also went out of his way to make sure we were happy with anything else we needed. A huge thank you again for the beautiful rooftop dinner on the last night. If you're in Unawatuna and this property is available, book it. You will not be disappointed. We will be back, and a huge thanks to Shar and Tim for sharing your beautiful home with the AirBnB community.

    Lisa2019-10-24T00:00:00Z
  • We just got back from our roundtrip in Sri Lanka. We spent the last couple of days at the Unakanda White House and we can only highly recommend it. The estate is beautiful - the interior, the pool, the view and the food. The two gentlemen working there are phenomenal, they made our stay to something special. The infrastructure is outstanding as well - you can either enjoy this retreat and quietness, or simply spend your time at the beach in one of the countless restaurants or bars. We will definitely be back soon.

  • Lotte & Shadwell welcome you into their most stylish and luxurious home. The property is of the highest end. If you are looking for somewhere in nature to relax whilst enjoying the company of a very kind and interesting couple then this is the place for you. Having praised the property so highly though, our parting thoughts were the immence kindness of Lotte & Shadwell after our little girl got an infection at our previous hotel. We will be forever grateful.

    Stuart2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay in the villa was very nice! We liked the peace, the view and the surroundings. The food we were offered was very varied and delicious.

    Laura2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • The stay at Lotte’s place was outstanding! The villa itself is absolutely stunning and Lotte & Shadwell are very kind and generous. We felt very welcome in their house. Lotte even took us to a very nice temple during our stay. Furthermore, they have extremely nice staff and a very good cook. It is definitely worth to spend a few days in this wonderful environment. Thanks Lotte!

    Christian2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • This place is exquisite. Words don't describe it. The layout of the villa is a wonder, the interior so in tune with its surroundings, which are themselves jaw dropping. The view is to die for. Add to that Lotte and Shadwell, who go above and beyond to ensure everything is expertly tended to. I was travelling solo, on my first trip to Sri Lanka and they took me completely under their wings and treated me as a member of their family, acting as personal tour guides from the moment I landed. AirBnB was founded for experiences like this; book in immediately.

    Nina2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • A truly unique and memorable experience. The property is simply stunning. Lotte and Shadwell are the quintessential hosts and whilst they live on the property, the space is private and large enough to enjoy time out relaxing. The property is quite a way out of town, however we enjoyed most of our meals at the villa, and the candlelit dinners were a highlight of our trip.

    Cara2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • We are actually having a hard time adjusting to our regular life at home after staying in amba villa. We were just spoiled there, the villa is so beautiful, the views are incredible, the food beyond amazing and the hosts and staff are incredible. Above and beyond amazing. We are so happy to have had the privilege of staying here and we can’t wait to be back. Highly highly recommend.

    Alex2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • The villa is stunning! The photos looks great, but the reality is even better. Lotte and Shadwell took so good care of us. Lovely people. If you book this place you will get luxery right in the middle of beautifull nature. I hope to be back here someday.

    Kristian2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing property, photos and words can’t explain the beauty and peacefulness of this villa and surrounding countryside. Whether lying by the pool, having a drink looking out over water below or chilling out under the Mango tree in the stunning gardens you will instantly relax! The villa is stunning and the food delicious. Lotte, Shadwell and their lovely staff are fantastic hosts. This is a special property that I wouldn’t hesitate in booking.

  • Nest Wood Bungalow is situated in a middle of a tea estate. I stayed one night with my family and we loved our stay. Absolutely breathtaking views. Naditha and staff are very friendly and their service is excellent. Their food is delicious too. Rooms are clean & well maintained. I highly recommend this place.

    Kasun2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place even with a 2 year old! Very remote and cut off and would recommend them installing an “honesty fridge” with drink/snacks/ beer in it because otherwise it’s just water between meals. Stunning location which is of course why you’d visit here. Service is impeccable and the meals were incredible. Thank you!!

    Lucy2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • In fact it has been the most amazing location: view, pool, house, etc. but what has touched us the most is the incredible aura of Naditha (your host). His smile is unique and the way ow he is giving his guests the most amazing experience in Sri Lanka is absolutely outstanding! In that regard, we come back to you Naditha wherever you are! When there is light, there is shadow: I would really appreciate a modernisation of the house: the furniture, bathroom etc. is not the highest standard and can be upgraded with a few days of work / ideas / furniture! We would love to come back- for sure!!!! HUGS! Lennardt & Ela

    DaniEla2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Go there with your eyes closed it's great! An exceptional view, very good local cuisine, a warm and discreet welcome

    Marjorie2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing. We stayed 3 nights - the first 3 days of our Sri Lanka holiday. The surroundings are amazing. Spectacular views and so quiet and peaceful. The inside is nothing special, but not important when you spend most of the time outside. The host is so friendly and helpful and took really good care of us. He cooks amazing meals with lots of local food from the area. Anything you ask for is possible. I will always recommend anyone to try this, and I recommend a minimum of 3 nights. I imagine 1 or 2 nights is just not enough to enjoy this wonderful place. I’m sure we’ll be back one day. It’s really amazing. Even better than the pictures.

    Rikke2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Exceptional house and pool in a fantastic location! You just never get used to the view, the rainforest and tea plantation are so beautiful! The breakfast and dinner that is served is one of the best meals we were able to enjoy during our trip. The hosts are very friendly and courteous and showed us a small part of the rainforest on a walk. The interior is kept very simple; the shower in particular needs to be revised urgently. Toilet goes great, but the water pressure was so little that we had to wash under the tap because the shower didn't work. The beds are simply built and can become uncomfortable. Overall, we had a wonderful stay, perfect for relaxing after an exhausting Sri Lanka trip. We didn't want to stay more than 2-3 nights, as the possibilities in the area are very limited.

    Katharina2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • There are few words to describe how special this place is. The views are utterly staggering and the varied & delicious meals a real treat - Naditha’s knowledge of flavours are out of this world! We even got shown where the fruits, spices and herbs were mostly sourced around the property. The isolation was perfect for us & could have stayed another week...easily! We thank you Yasiru & Naditha so much for your hospitality in your beautifully located, gem of a stay!

    Ali2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • The place: perfect! The service from Nadita and Rohan (kitchen): perfect! The food - breakfast, lunch, dinner: perfect! The view and the pool: perfect! The equipment and the furniture in the rooms could be much better.

    *New from November 2019: plunge pool in rear garden for guests to enjoy!!* Bright airy apartment with balcony and semi-open air bathroom, situated opposite a cinnamon field in a peaceful green spot. This is an ideal base from which to enjoy the beach life of Hikkaduwa, in a relaxing environment.
    This is one of 4 purpose-built self-catering apartments. Located opposite a beautiful cinnamon field, where you can often see tropical birds and monkeys, it's just a 15minute walk or a short scooter ride from the Narigama end of Hikkaduwa beach. This apartment is upstairs and has a balcony with lounging day-bed which overlooks the garden, Large double bedroom with super-king sized bed, mosquito net and fan, desk and wardrobe..large windows look out onto the jungle behind. Spacious modern semi-open air en-suite bathroom, with hot water shower and bath tub, you can watch the stars and fireflies at night while you soak, and shower in the sunshine! Private kitchen with breakfast bar, gas/electric hob, fridge-freezer, and cooking equipment. The garden is shared with the other guests and is a great, shady place to relax-it has a big barbeque (perfect for cooking up the great local seafood!) and Chill out area with a long table and floor cushions. There is space to park scooters within the gated area, and there is also room to park a small car outside the property. Please note that these apartments are designed for 2 adults sharing rather than families. For that reason amongst others, we only consider taking children and infants in certain circumstances where we think it can work. Please consult with us before booking if you're travelling with a child, thank you.
    Hikkaduwa is known for its beach and the various water based activities-from late October until March, it becomes a popular surf destination with something for each level-from beginner to advanced. (Ask if you would like lessons or help with board hire!) during this time you can dive, snorkel and wake board. There is a beautiful lagoon nearby, with small islands and a temple, and we are in a good position to visit Galle and its historic fort. Local handicrafts, leatherwork, and moonstones along with other gems can be bought here. If you want any advice on an itinerary we can easily advise you on how to make the most of your stay!
  • Hannahs and Amilas place is just awesome. The appartment is beautiful with a lot attention to detail! We got great recommendations and Hannah and Amila were really helpful to organize activities/ drivers etc. The surrounding of banana leaves is amazing and you can definitively find your peace of mind there. We'd love to come back one day <3

    Sarah2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at the Banana Leaf was truely everything we could wish for - and more. The apartment was super spacious with a big bathroom, a beautiful balcony and a kitchen that contained everything we needed for a homecooked meal - even a basket of fruits for us to enjoy! The hosts were always available through text or at the property if there was anything we needed. 10/10!

    Helene2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • beautiful and quiet place in the garden near the center, which is very noisy, design interior in the original style. I especially appreciate the drinking water filter in the garden, the constant presence of the hosts and their assistance in organizing the transport for excursions.

  • Just spent two amazing weeks at Banana Leaf Apartments with my wife. Hannah and Amila were perfect hosts, full of local knowledge and always helpful and on hand to help with any questions. From the moment we arrived they made us feel welcome with their amazing hospitality and by the time we left it we felt we had always known them. The apartment was perfect, spotlessly clean and had everything you need for your holiday whether your there for a couple of days or a couple of weeks. Hikkaduwa is an amazing place to spend time but it can be very noisy and chaotic. Banana Leaf is perfectly positioned. Hidden away in a jungle setting amongst cinnamon and palm trees, waking up to the sound of chipmunks, wild peacock, sun birds and parrots but a 20 minute walk or a 5 minute tuc tuc ride puts you at the Galle road with all the shops, bars and restaurants you could ever need and the fantastic beach. I couldn't recommend Banana Leaf enough, perfect for nature lovers and beach lovers. We cant wait to get back there next year!

    Phil2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • We spent 10 nights in the Kittul, every morning we were woken by the peacock, so not for late risers;) a beautiful place where you can also relax from the hustle and bustle of Hikkaduwas.

    Tina2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at Banana Leaf, it has the perfect combination of beach and busyness of Hikkaduwa whilst being set back in the jungle and cinnamon plantations making it really private and peaceful. The concrete interiors are stunning and the pool is perfect for a little dip on a hot day! Amila and Hannah were so helpful, they arranged us tuk tuks and taxis everywhere and gave us loads of of locals advice. This is a great place to stay I highly recommend! Wish we could have stayed longer!

    Suzannah2020-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • Our most beautiful accommodation in Sri Lanka. The morning hours are especially beautiful when you are woken up with the sounds from the jungle. 100% recommended

    Daniela2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay. A peaceful refuge from the busy main strip of Hikkaduwa. Room was exceptionally clean and modern and it was really nice to have a little kitchen and balcony. The pool area was lovely to enjoy some afternoon sun after a morning on the beach. Amila and Hannah were so friendly we had a great evening together. It’s a lovely little spot and if you are thinking of booking - do it!

    CHECK ALL 5 LISTINGS UNDER AIRBNB For GALKADAWALA FOREST LODGE FOR AVAILABILITY, EVEN IF ONE LISTING SHOWS FULL. TAILOR MADE DISCOUNTED SPECIAL OFFERS FOR THE MONTHS OF APRIL, MAY, JUNE, SEPT, OCT AND NOV .... depending on the length of the stay ... whether you are single, a couple ... family or a group of friends :) 2 Forest Lodges nestled in the centre of the "Cultural Triangle" and 3 Wildlife Parks. Habarana is on the main road to Trincomalee, Passikudha, Batticaloa, Arugambay & Kandy.
    Nestled in the mystic Sri Lankan countryside, 10.5 km (10 Minutes) from the Habarana town, Galkadawala is a FOREST HOMESTAY consisting of 2 treehouse like bungalows. 1st bungalow consists of 3 rooms and 2nd bungalow has 2 rooms. Each room can be made into double, twin, triple or family room as required. All rooms are with attached bathrooms, electricity, hot water, large canopy type mosquito nets (for an insect free sleep), fans, Wi-Fi and a comprehensive library on Sri Lankan culture, history and wildlife. Galkadawala, was discovered in 2006, a land deforested and destroyed by chena (slash and burn) cultivation. Our aim was to transform this barren patch to a jungle habitation; creating a haven for guests to enjoy in a setting where MAN AND NATURE LIVE IN HARMONY WITH EACH OTHER; in which ANIMALS, BIRDS, REPTILES AND INSECTS ALSO HAVE THEIR DUE PLACE. Galkadawala, is constructed mainly by reusing “used building materials” like used timber, doors, windows, bricks, roofing tiles, even discarded industrial trunking. Consumption of power has been reduced considerably by sensitive use of natural light and ventilation for cooling. The ‘open concept’ of architectural design offers the guests a very deep connection with nature. Guests should be open minded to accept various creatures inside as well as outside, since it is their habitat and we are the guests. Forest pathways, the network of waterways and lakes surrounding Galkadawala is ideal for trekking or bird watching. Visit popular heritage sites and also sites unknown to tourists of the ‘Cultural Triangle’. Experience nature at its best in the dry zone of Sri Lanka unhindered. Learn to cook like a local.

  • This is an amazing experience of the Sri Lankan forest. Don't miss it!

    Monica2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • Maulie's place is for the nature lovers. Confortable bed, adorable team and great location (close to sigirya and Dambulla). The accomodation i a bit expensive for the standing but the experience in the forest is great.

    Brice2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Galkadawala is a unique and special place. You feel like you are staying in a magical treehouse that allows comfort while connecting to the surrounding nature. The staff are very friendly and our host ate dinners with us and our fellow travelers/guests, sharing tips for local adventures and sharing her journey to create this amazing eco friendly place. Delicious local food too. I recommend taking out the kayaks on the lake in the early morning...tons of birds, bring binoculars!

    Lora2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • If you are going to Srilanka... You have to visit this place... Little expensive? Yes... But Awsomest experience ever...

    Sagar2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • We had a 3 night stay and it was a truly expectional experience for all the right reasons. Maulie our host and her staff were very welcoming and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. It was a perfect location for visiting local attractions. The lake for birdwatching was incredible. A good variety both on the lake and in the trees. The food was exceptional and authentic. When we needed to leave early in the morning a packed breakfast was always waiting for us to take away. Would highly recommend this accommodation and hope to return there ourselves in the not too distant future.

    Ian2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice and peacefull place. You can stay and just ralax at the lodge for a couple of days - but also its a good location for going to places in the Habarana area during tha day, and withdraw to the sounds of the jungle in the afternoon. Good place for couples, families, friends and solo travellers looking to chill out in a quiet place. Rooms are open to the nature, so you should be to :) we loved our three nights there! Food is the best - The people working there aswell! We would love to go back some time.

    Ståle2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • We really had the most wonderfull stay. Waking up with birdsong in the middle of the jungle, amazing sri lankan breakfast and dinner & countless activities that can be arranged through Maulie. Who is the warmest of hosts. You’ll be a fool not to book.

    Anna2019-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • The place is truly magical as all the reviews have said. I absolutely love falling asleep and waking up surrounded by the sounds of nature inside a comfortable room. Maulie and her team, including the dogs are so welcoming! The Sri Lanka food are extremely delicious!

    The Square Peg is a quirky hotel located halfway up the legendary Bahirawakanda hill. It is within a 4 minute drive from the kandy Railway station (1.1km) 10 minutes by foot. 1Km to the Temple of the tooth and the Kandy lake. The rooftop lounge exclusive for inhouse guest offers breathtaking views of the entire city of Kandy including the historic Temple of the tooth, the Kandy lake, the old Bogambara prison and the Hanthana mountain range.
    The property has stairs and high balconies which are not suitable for kids below 14 years and/or guest with fear of heights.
    Probably the last remaining non touristy neighborhood so close to the city. The property sits in the middle of the most high-end residential neighborhood of Kandy on one side and a densely populated working class neighborhood on the other.
  • Our stay was really great even we’ve only stayed for one night. The view from the rooftop is amazing and we really enjoyed the breakfast and also the dinner - everybody was so nice and helpful :)

    Corinna2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • The Hotel / Loft is located above the roofs of Kandy in the immediate vicinity of the famous Buddha statue. From the roof terrace you have an incredibly great view of the city, which makes the breakfast served there a real highlight. The rooms are new and modern. Large shower including hair dryer and towels available. Air conditioning works very well and lets you sleep at night with pleasant temperatures. The host is very friendly and tries to give good tips. The beautiful view naturally has the price that you are not directly in the city center and have to walk about 15-20 minutes to get there. As an alternative, there is the "PickMe" app, which, like "Uber", allows you to order TukTuks or cars for very little money (we paid around € 1 for the journey between the hotel and the train station). Another advantage is that the price is already fixed here and you don't have to argue with TukTuk drivers whether you pay more or less. All in all, the accommodation is highly recommended!

    Matthias2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay here! We were greeted with coconuts when we arrived, and we were shown how to get to various landmarks. Breakfast was lovely, we had freshly cooked omelettes, fresh fruit, coconuts and coffee - a great start to the day! The room was clean, stylish, and very spacious. We very much enjoyed our night at the Square Peg!

    Robert2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved everything! The team was so considerate and helpful. The design is unique, facilities are great. The rooftop-view stunning Do yourself a favour and go there.

  • Awesome accomodation. Nice people, beautiful view

    Jörg2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • This was the best place to spend our first night in Sri Lanka - a private driver picked us up for a very fair price and even the spectacles we left at the place were sent to us! Best communication host ever! The place looks as the pictures, the terrace is just amazing!!!

    Saskia2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Dinesh and the staff were super friendly and helpful! We loved our dinner (the curry is fantastic!). Our room was clean and we loved the interior design of the Loft. Totally recommend.

  • An absolutely amazing place and can’t wait to visit again. Location was great, room super comfortable & stylish. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Views were out of this world and set this place apart from others. But, my greatest compliment goes to the effort that was made to help me celebrate my birthday. Thank you, take care and keep doing what you do best. Regards Caroline & Peter.

    Caroline2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great views, great hospitality! Even though we had a short stay, Anil was super helpful and friendly and went out of his way to arrange our transportation and advised us how to make the most of our short time in Ella. Room was very clean, bed was comfortable, place has a nice rustic charm. Watching the sunrise from our private balcony was amazing! And a wonderful breakfast to boot. Would stay here again if we're back in Ella.

    Lucine2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • First of all thanks to Anil and his family for the hospitality. The breakfast was great and the room was a nice and quiet place. Anil gave us some helpful tips for discovering Ella. We can definately recommend staying at Anils place!

    Julia2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Anil and his wife made our stay special. The view was really great and the rooms nicely decorated! Anil provided us with great tips and spoiled us with a delicious breakfast every day! We would come back!

    Louise-Marie2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • The view from our room was to die for. Stunning scenery- with monkeys, a mongoose and some beautiful birds for company. The breakfasts varied each day and were delicious. Anil was wonderful in organising a shared car for the next part of our journey. We saw someone eating one of his curries when we returned from town. We wished we had also indulged rather than having the less appealing one in town. Thanks again. Hope we can get back one day.

    Trish2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • It was perfekt! Thank you.

    Sophia2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • Idyll is tucked away in the hillside a short ways up from the main town area. Anil and his family are gracious hosts. The room has a lovely balcony with an incredible view! It truly is idyllic. Anil helped me organize transportation logistics (even driving me on his scooter at one point) and prepared a delicious Sri Lankan breakfast. Highly recommend to all visitors looking for a true home stay while traveling to Ella.

    Christine2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Wow. Anils place goes above and beyond anything we imagined. The setting/views, the hospitality, the room. Absolute bliss. The best airbnb we have ever stayed. Anil goes out of his way to help you out in every way possible , provides honest, thorough local advice. Kind, friendly. We will be back I hope. If you are staying in ella do yourself a favour and stay here. You won't regret it.

    Light and airy with beautiful views. A place to relax in tranquil surroundings.
  • The house is really good located between tropical trees with some monkeys and tropical birds in it. The house is nice decorated and the terrace is in the shadows. Leela makes the breakfast end the dinner for you if you want, she is a sweet and nice person. The beach is reachable in only 5 minutes drive where you can swim with children because the see is quite here.

    Arletta & Willem2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed staying at Mataramba Lodge! The house is located at a quiet and beautiful spot and the pool was our favorite! Leela is such a amazing woman, welcoming us and made us tasty breakfast. The only bad was that the place was not fully prepared when we arrived and the power was gone for about 5 hours. But I really recommand staying here for some days while visiting Unawatuna!

    Kamilla2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Cecilia is a really good host with a lot of good advice ! The house is very cute and you will feel quickly at home !

    Helschger2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Cecilia Villa is set in a lovely village. She has a lovely neighbourhood and we were lucky to have her lovely neighbours cooking. Beautiful location and very peaceful. Great area for bird watching from the pool!

    Brooke2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • The best home we had in Sri Lanka!!!!

    Janin2020-01-30T00:00:00Z

    Johanna2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Mataramba is the perfect place for 2-4 people to sit and do nothing in peaceful and quiet surroundings. The birdlife is amazing and we saw monkeys, monitor lizards and peacocks everyday. The delightful Leela cooked amazing Sri Lankan breakfasts and dinners for us daily at a small fee. The road can be a bit tricky after heavy rain and you may have to walk for a few minutes only, ( a small torch would be useful to bring in your suitcase), but the location is worth it. The tuk-tuk driver Amila, recommended by Leela is a very sweet young man who speaks good English and is a careful driver. We highly recommed Mataramba. Jerry and Lotte

    Lotte2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • I loved Mataramba lodge. Felt like it was a hidden gem amidst the lush Sri Lankan jungle.. worth the adventure to get there! Cecilia is an incredible host, very responsive over message and happy to accomodate whatever your needs are - she helped us before, during and after our stay. I would absolute love to visit again, we already miss the amazing private pool! Leela the housekeeper is a sweetheart as well, she always wanted to make the stay as comfortable as possible for us.

    **New from November 2019: 14x6 foot Plunge pool! ** For those who love the sea, but like a quiet space to relax in away from the crowds and take in the beautiful nature this area has to offer. The self catering apartment is nestled in amongst cinnamon fields and jungle at the end of a residential road in Hikkaduwa. A short scooter ride or pleasant stroll to the beach.
    One of four celf-catering properties on the same site. The apartment is equipped with.. Fitted kitchen- fridge freezer, gas hob and sink with all utensils, large breakfast bar with seating on terrace. Ac/fan bedroom with: desk and chair, large four-poster bed with mosquito net and wardrobe for clothes storage. Not over-looked which is great with our large windows! Bathroom with: Hot water bath/shower, sink and towel rail/towels. It is an amazing wildlife-spotting area and we have built a shady chill-out area in the garden with large barbeque so you can lie-back and watch the monkeys, birds and chipmunks. In addition to this we are now opening up our adjoining garden for guests to access our plunge pool! This is one of 4 apartments which are all slightly different- Bamboo, Jackfruit, Kurundu and Kittul. If you are travelling as a group there is a possibility of booking all four as a discounted block so please let us know if interested. We can arrange transfers, scooter hire or tuk tuks. Amila is a surf instructor and enjoys teaching our guests! Please note that these apartments are designed for 2 adults sharing rather than families. For that reason amongst others, we only consider taking children and infants in certain circumstances where we think it can work. Please consult with us before booking if you're travelling with a child, thank you.
    Hikkaduwa is famous for its surf, nature and watersports. You can swim with turtles, learn to surf, wakeboard on the nearby lagoon and see an abundance of wildlife only a short distance from our doorstep. Seafood (and food generally) is fantastic here-very fresh and we can show you the fish and fruit markets to help you with any supplies you need. If you are here to fully relax and unwind you can try some authentic Ayuevedic treatments including massage and cleanses nearby.
  • Loved the appartment, like a little oasis in the middle of the jungle. Well designed, super clean, nice little pool to cool off after a day at the beach. Tiny Moka express for morning coffee was super appreciated. Loved the kitchen we had everything we needed. Thanks a lot.

    François2020-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay! A quick tuk tuk into town. Very cute kitchen with everything you would need for a homemade meal. Comfortable beds. I'd recommend an eye mask if you're sensitive to light at night (but most places in Sri Lanka have thin curtains). I'd definitely stay here again!

    Christy2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • A fantastic experience! Amila was there to receive us and was very kind in explaining to us all the local hang out spots as well as give some travel tips. We also met Hannah briefly, who was enthusiastic and kind to us to make sure we had a comfortable stay. Overall, a really clean place and would definitely recommend. Although it's a fair bit inside from the main road, so be prepared for that. But an excellent property with a quiet, beautiful, natural space. Absolutely loved our experience.

    Devarshi2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Amila and Hannah's place is lovely! It's a bit far from Hikkaduwa, but it's clean, cozy and comfortable. And there's a lot of birds and animals in jungle around apartment. Great place to stay for those who extremely tired of the city. Also Amila checked-in earlier because we arrived in early morning. Also he left some fruits for us. We are really appreciate that! Amila and Hannah are very hospitable hosts. We enjoyed every minute spent in this apartment!

    Anna2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • My husband & I had a great time at The Banana Leaf Apartments. Its a lovely place that's very comfortable & cozy. They also offer a well equipped kitchen to prepare your own meals. The hosts are super friendly and are always ready to help you out in anyway possible to make your stay more comfortable.

    Prajwala2020-02-22T00:00:00Z

    Kristin2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Hannah and Amila are excellent hosts--so helpful and friendly - we even were invited to join a family party on our second night. Perfect hosts and the most beautiful and stylish apartments in a quiet part of Hikkaduwa surrounded by cinnamon fields and jungle. When we were leaving, Hannah reminded us to contact her for any advice we might need on our travels. Also, Amila's cooking is the best! Thoroughly recommend Banana Leaf.

    Anne2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • It's my best place around the world. The beach side is too much hotels ,so it's very touristic. But the place around the house is very quite and peaceful. And Amila and Hanna were so nice hosts. I got Amila's surfing lesson. It was so nice too. Highly recommend this house to all.

    to feel space, tranquility and nature... Very Spacious suite with a private plunge pool and modern comforts where time stands still as you enjoy the space nature and tranquillity in this very old Dutch colonial villa.
    Nestled in the middle of a large lush garden with sprawling trees and picturesque scenery, our villa is only a 15 minutes drive from Galle Town, the most well-known coastal city in Southern Sri Lanka. Deliberately designed to provide ample space and relaxed privacy for its guests, it is a newly- restored 18th century two-storied building which offers two large suites, each with a private swimming pool and a jacuzzi/ bath tub. The suites are surrounded by spacious verandahs opening out onto the terraced garden which gently slopes away from the house. Although hidden away, the ingenious planning of the original 18th century original owner (who's said to be a supplier of material to the Dutch Fortress construction) means that the position of building provides almost a lookout over the surrounding area. This suite -- Sunrise Suite -- obviously facing east, on first floor, is surrounded by long wide balconies. It also has 6 large windows and 3 double doors giving a panoramic view of the surrounding mountains, jungles and paddy fields. The two suites can be booked together or separately. Each suite is completely separated from the other to ensure privacy. Both suites have been sympathetically restored in keeping with the history of this very old building, but with a modern emphasis on comfort, space and connection to nature. In a continuation of its heritage & is decorated with antique furniture from the Dutch period including large four poster beds. Time stands still as you enjoy the peaceful comfort and understated luxury of the rooms and the simple pleasures of being close to nature. Alternatively, Galle Town and the famous Dutch Fortress are easily close enough for exploring, shopping and dining. The popular and renowned Unawatuna and Hikkaduwa beach is only 20 minutes away. (Please note that given its large balconies, staircases, and open swimming pool on the first floor, we regret that it is not able to accept guests with small children for safety reasons.) The famous "The Lighthouse Hotel" -- a masterpiece by the world renown Architect, Geoffrey Bawa -- and the beautiful beach just 10 minutes away. Wifi Meals can be ordered or a cook can be hired by prior arrangement. Breakfast included in the rates
    We are in a very quiet residential neighbourhood. As our home is at the end of a private street vehicular traffic is almost non existent.
  • Great place, close from Galle. Dinesh was very helpful with travel arrangements and suggestions about activities/where to eat. Waking up to the sound of the birds was a memorable experience. You can spot some exotic species near the house itself. The plunge pool is the best part of the room :)

    Jennifer2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • If you’re looking for a beautiful open-air room, furnished with dark-wood antiques; a private plunge pool and a huge balcony overlooking large, shady jungle trees; then look no further than Dinesh & Sumudu’s SR spacious suite. If you dream of watching the sunrise from your luxuriously comfortable four-post bed; listening to the sounds of the monkeys swinging from the branches just outside your window; eating delicious, traditional Sri Lankan breakfasts and being hosted by an attentive, generous couple then all you have to do is book Dinesh & Sumudu’s SR spacious suite. If you want an unforgettably peaceful jungle-retreat, do yourself a favour and book this AirBnB. We did. It was the perfect honeymoon. Thank you Dinesh, Sumudu & Sunethra, we had a wonderful stay and didn’t want to leave!

    Jonny2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Dinesh and Sumudu’s place is stunning. It was such a beautiful oasis from the busy city of Galle surrounded by amazing lush scenery. The room was even bigger than we expected and having our own private plunge pool was an absolute treat! Dinesh and Sumudu were charming and helpful and I would be back again if I ever return to Galle. Thoroughly recommend this as a place to stay!

    Anna2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • We only just left today after staying there for 3 nights and I must say, it was the definitely our favourite stay in our whole trip in Sri Lanka! The house itself has full of character. A very lovely colonial styled home surrounded by pure nature! The private plunge pool and the jacuzzi (although we didnt use it) were just perfect added bonus, it’s so easy to want to just stay in the whole day! Dinesh and Sumudu, the famiy and the staff are very attentive and hospitable! They were away on some part of our stay and they still arranged to get us take away dinner on a rainy night! Coudnt thank you enough! Daily Sri lankan breakfast was just lush, plus watching the monkeys and birds and occasional cat visitors, what more could you ask for?! We highly recommend this place, particularly if you want a nice peaceful stay away from the busy streets but close enough to Galle, Hikaduwa and Unawatuna beaches.

    Gretchelle2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Dinesh is a wonderful host fully deserving his superhost status. The room we stayed in was spectacular and enormous, with a very comfortable bed, wonderful plunge pool, good hot water and a spectacular view into the jungle. It was great to watch the monkeys leaping from tree to tree. Dinesh has a close neighbour with a tuk tuk who is charming and can easily whisk you off into Galle Fort or beyond. We had a really lovely stay - thank you very much!

    James2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • We can only join the many almost exuberant comments. Sumudu and Dinesh are great hosts! And once you have moved into your quarters on the first floor with the surrounding veranda and the small refreshment pool and watch the monkeys jumping and climbing halfway up the tree, you don't want to leave. Edda and Nicolas We only can confirm all the positive judgments we have read about Dinesh and Sumudu. They are great hosts !! And if you arrive at your new "home" on the first floor in the big apartment with the Veranda and the refreshing pool, watching the monkeys jumping from tree to tree, discovering beautiful white birds with long tailes, then you will never leave! We will come back. Edda and Nicolas

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our time here. It was a total oasis, complete with monkeys and fireflies! Dinesh and Sumudu were lovely - so helpful and definitely knew the best places to eat. Loved the plunge pool and the hoppers perhaps the best!

  • Get ready to reach paradise. The accommodation is a gem hidden in the most beautiful green jungle with the sounds a birds, monkeys and squirrels. And yet, only 10min drive by tuktuk or bus to Galle. The room is extremely well and beautifully decorated. The pictures on the accommodation are beautiful but the reality is much better. The bed is comfortable and lovely dressed with beautiful white linen. The bathroom well equipped, and the fresh plunge pool was calling for us after a long warm day. There is a little fridge with ice cold water, small candlelights to enjoy the evenings on the terrace. Local breakfast served on the terraces by smiley and friendly staff. Lovely and interesting discussion with Dinesh and Sumudu. Extremely nice and helpful hosts. They really went beyond a hosts normal and expected attributions with food, guidance and assistance in any way. Our stay here, was definitely the best in Sri Lanka as being so authentic and so charming.

    Antonia2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • This cabin is so nice! The location and view are beautiful. That makes this place very unique. You can see the mountains, a waterfall, all sorts of plants and trees and most important; the famous train drives just in front of the cabin. The host was very kind and helpfull. Everything was clean. The breakfast was very nice. Only thing was the communication before we arrived. We wanted to know if we could park our tuk tuk but didn’t get an answer.

    Indi2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Incredible time staying at in the tree house. What a view!!! Absolutely incredible! Was total heaven sitting outside having delicious breakfast with the most incredible views of lush scenery and beautiful waterfall. Really wonderful host. Highly recommend! Such a good location for town too. Will be back!

    Susan2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at the Ella Bamboo Cabana for 3 nights and our stay couldn't have been any better! Indika was so helpful with all our questions, always organized us a tuktuk or a taxi and provided us with the best tips. The room had the most beautiful view over Ella, an amazing balcony and was super clean. Also we want to mention the delicious breakfast. Every day we got different regional specialities for breakfast and we never stayed hungry. Also we were provided every day with water bottles. We couldn't be happier, thank you very very much!! See you soon.

    Jessica2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Wow! This place was an experience for a life time, I will never forget this house with the most impressive view! Small tip: get there before it’s getting dark, it’s a bit tricky to find :)

    Saskia2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • We LOVED this place. Absolutely stunning views (of Ella Rock and surrounding hills), great place to relax and watch trains pass by, lovely host (and adorable doggy), amazing location: peaceful and out of the hustle of town but easy access to it (10/15 mins walk along track to Ella/ easy access to Ella Rock hike), and very comfortable and cosy. We didn’t see another place like this in Ella. Would highly recommend.

    Rachel2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • It was a pleasure to live here! Location is great — there were just we and nature. And it took ten minutes on foot by railroad and we were in city center. We liked breakfasts. We ordered it a day before and chose any time 7:30-10:00. Breakfasts were good: tea/coffee, eggs, fruits, toasts with butter and jam, main local dish (such as rice and curry). We were thankful for the map with all routes to attractions such us Ella rock. Definitely recommend this place to live!

    Irina2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • You won’t find a better view from your front porch in Ella! Very true to the photos. It’s located on the route to Ella rock and is a quick 15 min walk to town along the tracks. The trains are infrequent, so you won’t need to worry about them waking you up at night. There are a lot of animals around and you’ll hear lots of critters on the roof at night. The space itself is clean, spacious and has good WiFi.

    Our natural beach cabana with balcony, ocean views and en-suite bathroom is the perfect place for a relaxed beach holiday . The cabana has everything you need and is situated in a quiet area close to the tourist town Hikkaduwa. From here you can explore the area!
    We have a cozy, wooden beachfront Cabana available for rent. The cabana is made from wood. It has an attached, modern bathroom with walk through closet. It is featured with a fan, mosquito net, mirror, mini fridge and sitting area. The water tank is on the roof and the tank gets hot during the day from the sun so the water is always warm unless it's raining! The cabana is right at the beach in front of the ocean, overlooking Thambili Café. A peaceful and quiet place, perfect to relax to the sound of the Ocean. Galle Road is behind and you are only 3km away from the tourist town Hikkaduwa. Our accommodation is unique due to its natural style, atmosphere and privacy. You are surrounded by nature, the birds and the ocean. You will love it! During the season from November until April we run a small beach café Thambili Cafe which you can see from the balcony. You can order yummy dishes but are not disturbed by the Café activities. Even so the cafe is closed during the off season you can get breakfast here if you wish for a small extra cost. You can also use the pool and enjoy the tropical garden at our other guesthouse 150m walk from the beach cabana. Public and private transport is right outside the door on Galle Road. We also have our own air-conditioned Van and can arrange transfers, excursions and tours around the beautiful Island of Sri Lanka for you. You can rent bicycles or a scooter from us to explore the area. The jungle starts just behind the railway line 100m inland and you can see lots of wildlife there.
    Our cabana is situated in a quiet, safe neighbourhood with private houses and Boutique Hotels. In walking distance to the main tourist area with surf spots, bars, restaurants and shops.
  • The cabana is located above the very nice Thamibili Café on the beach. At night you hear nothing but the sound of the sea. The accommodation is nicely decorated and clean and offers a little peace. After Hikkaduwa you can relax on the beach. The café offers delicious food and drink. We felt comfortable all around

    Alexander2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay at Ruwan & Linda’s cabana. The hosts as well as the cafe employees were very helpful and accommodating. The location was also perfect for our needs. Would 100% recommend.

    Reetta2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Ruwan & Lindas place was just perfect for a relaxed stay. It is directly at the beach so I could see and hear the waves from my room what really calmed down. The team around the cabana is doing an amazing job and you just feel comfortable. The decorated details in the cabana and room are enchanting. The food is great quality and just yammy. Thank you!

    Antonina2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • A really nice and cozy room right by the beach of Hikkaduwa. The people working there are very nice and friendly. The hospitality, location and food exceeded our expectations. It is located a couple of minutes from the busy parts of Hikkaduwa which suited us very well. Only downside was the lack of AC which the compensated with their hospitality.

    Martin2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay! It was authentic and unique, best part of our trip so far! Staff are so kind and offer advice and help with anything! Beautiful views and relaxing atmosphere

    Gemma2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • The time in the cozy cabana unfortunately passed far too quickly! It was insane and we would go back anytime. :) a highlight of our trip! The sea view was amazing and the people were so incredibly nice - the breakfast, snacks and dinner were also more than delicious! We had the best time - the great ocean view, best people and tasty food! Want to come again

    Katrin2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Stayed two nights mid December I enjoyed the place so much I added an additional night onto my stay. The location is perfect stright out onto the beach nicely out of the main town but easy to get to by tut tut if you want a bit of commercialism. The room is spacious has fan,fridge and Mossy net over the bed nice small veranda to sit out on after sunbathing etc. The staff are very friendly and helpful food was amazing didn’t bother going into hikkawuwdu had everything here.Ranga sorted tut tut out for my day exploring Galle fort area. Must not forget to mention that a pool and jacuzzi are available to use over the road at the family hotel.

    Ian2019-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • Ruwan and Linda’s place is a really nice cabana above the cafe with views of the ocean. It is on the quieter part of the beach so made for a peaceful start to our trip. Ruwan and the team were really welcoming and helpful and I would recommend to everyone!

    Any kid lucky enough to have a tree house in their backyard growing up was the source of envy on the block. Located in the most charming beach village Hiriketiya and set in Mond's own lush tropical garden overlooking the Indian ocean, you have the chance to stay admidst Hiriketiya's treetops to the sound of peacocks and the ocean waves.
    Hiriketiya - Rolling sapphire waves, headlands of palm trees and free spirited holiday makers soaking up more than their share of Vitamin D. Both treehouses are free-standing structures built on stilts 3.5meters off the jungle floor with a stairway leading up to a spacious room featuring a kingsize bed. The simple treehouses are our response to the hectic world and are truly worth the climb. - Kingsizebed - Open bathroom with rainshower - No AC, but a 24hour-sea-breeze and fan - Nature sounds for a goodnight sleep - Free Wi-Fi
    While staying in the treehouse you certainly will see a slew of wildlife. There are many peacocks, monitor lizards, monkeys in the surrounding palm trees as well all kinds of beautiful song birds and fireflies making an orchestra of gentle sounds that will guarantee a deep sleep. Hiriketiya Bay is a beautiful horseshoe-shaped cove. Due to the hills on the right and left of the bay, it is quite wind-protected and surfing is available pretty much all year round. The reef break is a peeling left hander on a very shallow reef closer to the coast line. It’s a powerful wave, holds up to 6ft and can lead up to 350m long ride. The beach break in the middle is a lot of fun for both beginners and intermediate. Dikwella Bay is a great place to first discover the underwater treasures of Sri Lanka. It's all about the chance to swim with elegant turtles in the waters off this unimaginably-lush island. Best months for snorkelling are between October and April. Peckish? Take a wander through the neighbouring towns market which holds a huge selection of fresh, yummy foods from vegetables, fruits, pastries and salads to seafood straight from the Indian ocean. There are a few things to do in and around Hiriketiya, we are happy to share our secret spots with you.
  • Absolute pure bliss. Sleeping in the jungle with all the comfort you need, near the beach. Absolutely lovely hospitality by the hosts and staff. Our Sri Lanka highlight. 10/10 would recommend!

    Jonas2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • A really nice place! A fantastic experience staying at the top of the palm trees between coconuts and monkeys overlooking the sea and the stars !! The cabins are very stylishly decorated in elements that almost blend in with the surrounding nature - very beautiful! In addition to that, we got a super delicious breakfast with the most beautiful view at the associated café, where the staff was very welcoming and friendly. If you want to live so that you really feel the nature (in the good way), you must definitely stay a few days in the cabins !!

    Gaia2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • The treehouse is something you’ll want to experience. Sleeping with the sounds of wildlife and the ocean (and if you’re lucky, a storm:). To my surprise we had no issues with mosquitoes as the property had nets around the bed, but we used plenty of deet to be in the safe side! Jessica and Renato were great hosts, easily contactable and a friendly face around the corner!

    Alexander Charlie2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Paradise isn’t enough to encapsulate the feel of the place. We had the pleasure of staying in the Treescape for our last night in Dikwella, it was wellness for the soul. The small touches of the incense inside was the cherry on top, from stars to the moon, we couldn’t have asked for more. Thank you Jessica & Renato for hosting us. Your vision is incredible , we feel exactly how you wish for all of your guests to feel!

    Samantha2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • such a beautiful place! jessica and renato are lovely hosts and make you feel at home. ✨ delicious breakfast with sea view on the rooftop terrace. everything you need in walking distance.. lot of nice bars, restaurants and beautiful beaches! good vibes there 🌴

    Valentina2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Jessica and Renato’s place was absolutely unreal!!! This stay was exceptional - loved listening to the waves at night. Would recommend to anyone!

    Tennyson2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing experience staying in a treehouse by the sea, listening to the peacocks, the ocean and waking up with the sunrise each morning. Breakfast was delicious, served on the rooftop of mond, with great views overlooking the sea in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere.

    Harriet2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • The treehouse is an incredible place to wake up. The sounds of the birds, the monkeys and the waves mingling is not something I'll forget in a hurry. Also, the breakfast in the main house was delicious and healthy - perfect way to start the day

    'A cute little hidden away homestead. Fringed by jungle bathed in peace and run by a lady who never stops smiling' - Lonely Planet Guide We would love to host you in our family home, offering authentic homecooked Sri Lankan meals with panoramic views of both Little Adams Peak and Ella Rock from your bedroom and the shared terrace. A short walk from town, we are happy to help you plan a memorable stay in Ella and any activities you'd like to do.
  • Great location, incredible view, amazing host, lovely room, yummy dinner. Stayed with a two year old and it was easy and a great base time explore Ella and the area. Thank you for making us feel so welcome in your home stay.

    Tobina2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing views and a quiet spot, away from the busy Main Street, but only a short scenic walk away. The dinner we had their was excellent and HUGE portions that we couldn’t finish. Unfortunately we couldn’t have breakfast there as we had excursions booked but we were provided snacks by the host so we didn’t go hungry. Good value for money and a beautiful spot.

    Kerry2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Lilu's place on Waterfall Road is an absolute gem. The location is almost beyond description overlooking one of the most beautiful views we have experienced in the country - it has to be seen to be believed. Lilu and her family are so friendly, so helpful ... you feel at home immediately in their beautiful balconied rooms. Only a short walk along the railway track to the vibrant down town of Ella, this is a perfect stay and I can't recommend it highly enough.

    Linda2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • We booked Lilu’s place for the lovely view and it didn’t disappoint! On top of that, Lilu is a great cook and has the best hospitality we’ve had in Sri Lanka (which is saying something as it’s been great everywhere). We were always having tea on the terrace and Lilu even did some laundry for us. When our driver arrived to take us to our next place, he arrived early and was greeted with tea as well- he commented on how friendly all the staff were! Would absolutely recommend!

    Tiffany2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Lilu's place in Ella is great. It's just a short walk or tuk tuk ride from the main strip for shops and restaurants. She is very hospitibal and her team run the guest house very well. Breakfast was awesome, wish we'd also had dinner. We had a couple extra requests that were easily met. Would stay again!

    Colby2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • The view and breakfast is amazing here! We stayed for 3 nights and loved all of it. It’s a short walk to the town down the train tracks so you’re away from all the noise of the town and the bed and room is very comfortable for a good nights sleep. It was all spotlessly clean and well organised. Couldn’t have asked for any more for the price!

    Sophie2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • We loved Lilu's place! Excellent accommodations and location with breathtaking views of Ella! Lilu was a great host and was very helpful with all of our questions. Highly recommend staying here.

    Mark2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our visit to Chamodya Homestay. It is in a good location, just a short walk into town on the train tracks and therefore also easy access to the Ella Rock hike and Nine Arch Bridge. The view is stunning and made the delicious breakfast even more enjoyable. The room itself was a good size, fairly basic but with all the essentials. The only slight downside is that it is difficult to have a shower without getting the whole bathroom wet, but the shower and other facilities are good. Lilu was also a fantastic host. Always friendly, smiling and super helpful. She gave us local tips, did some much appreciated laundry for us, and was always on hand with water or fresh juice when we got back from exploring. We also ate dinner at the homestay one evening and the food was amazing. Really reasonably priced for an absolute feast. I would definitely recommend this little homestay as a base for Ella!

    Each wooden cabana has single beds each with a large mosquito net. Beds can be pushed together to build a double be which is bigger than a standard double bed. The cabana comes private shower (open air), chill out veranda and hammock. The cabana resembles a typical fisherman’s home. Has been individually designed incorporating traditional building techniques and locally sourced materials. The cabana has been constructed with locally sourced coconut/Palmyra wood and coconut thatching which is 100% ecological, natural and sustainable! All structures on site are constructed by locals, who have been a part of the project from the very beginning. Our coconut planation which we still harvest also houses our garden of tranquillity. The team take good care of the garden which is full of tropical trees, plants. We serve delicious seafood, vegetable dishes and fresh juices (on demand). We have few chillout areas - one at the restaurant with hammocks and a separate elevated chillout right by the lagoon, where you can have a drink and watch the most amazing sunsets or a sunset yoga session We also have an elevated yoga deck within our premises for perfect morning yoga sessions with a calm lagoon view. Our guests have exclusive access to our beach huts on Kalpitiya Lagoon and Vella Island. Vellai island is our key kite surfing spot.
    Authentic experience in Kalpitiya: If you are interested to be hosted with a 100% local team to get a 100% sri-Lankan experience, then no other place can compete with our team of 9 locals ?? You will be able to take part in following sessions with them, inform the team at check-in what you would like to attend: 1. produce coconut butter out of our own coconuts, 2. learn to cook your favourite dish. 3. Prepare your own curry powder to take with you, 4. experience how the ladies prepare meals on an open fire stove (the only place in Kalpitiya where you can experience this art of old cooking method) 5. Collect Mussels and let the kitchen ladies prepare them traditionally or to your own wish Then I could suggest "Ruuk Village"
  • Amazing place for kiters and great experience for people who are aware that preserving the environment and including the community is important for world’s future. We loved it!

    Larisa2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed this beautiful, calm en relaxed place very much. Abdul is a great host and made our stay even more comfortable. Even as the boat driver, Nick the kite instructor, the Princess in the kitchen (the food is really delicious!) and the other workers. Thank you very much for a nice stay!

    Michel & Daisy2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • If you go to Sri Lanka, you should definitively stop at Ruuuk Village!! The host are so nice, the food is one of the best we ate during our trip, the cabana are so cool.... 5 stars for this airbnb! Go to Ruuk village !!!!

    Emma2019-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • 5 star stay. The staff can not be more friendly, accommodating and professional. Rooms are lovely (we stayed in an ensuite cabana). Outdoor bathroom is a luxury. Food excellent and far too much. Our 2 young teenage boys loved plying carrom which they were taught to play by the staff. Having wifi also made them happy as well as our trips to swim and play in the warm Indian Ocean. The staff also organised for us to see the Dolphins and Willpattu. Both experiences were incredible. Getting to Willpattu by boat made the whole experience an adventure. I got 'this was our best day ever' from my boys. Roshan was amazing at sorting out transport and responding to my questions and the staff there on site all ensured we didn't have to worry about anything. I feel incredibly lucky to have been part of Ruuk Village experience. So glad we headed away from all the tourists going south and went north instead. I think this spit will develop and change fast so get there before it gets too built up.

    Saverio2019-04-19T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely times and created memories at Ruuk village. The team will do just about anything to make you feel at your best. We didn’t come for kiting and still had loads of fun and enough to do. The food is fantastic, the bathroom clean, the people smile and the views are great! Oh and Wilpattu national park is a great outing

    Janneke2019-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • What a sanctuary! So peaceful and nice!

    Stefanie2019-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • The two week stay at Ruuk Village was a dream !! Even as a "non-kite surfers" one has come through activities such as stand-up paddling or with short trips quite at his own expense. We especially liked the food, which was freshly prepared every day for us and was eaten together with everyone else at a large table. Special praise to the whole team, who went to great lengths to fulfill our wishes and questions. This place is just right for those who long for a break and want to relax. We will be back ;)

    Jessica2019-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • This place is awesome, right on the lagoon, chilled atmosphere, nice people and really great food. Very nice eco concept, generator in the evening is ample and cabins are cool enough in the nights. Have a cooking class with the cook, she’s great. Massive portions and set menu is different everyday. Highly recommended!

    My home is situated in a location which you can walk from kandy in ten minutes.Outside the room area there is a nice balcony to the mountain view. We also have a platform above our house for meditation, yoga, and Auyrvedic oil massage. We also do trips to the cultural sites, national parks, knuckles mountain tracking and other trips round Sri Lanka. In case if this room is booked please go to my listing i have four more rooms to share.For any information I am always there with 30 yr experience.
    It's a room inside the main house which has both air conditioner and a fan. The wooden deck that overlooks the beautiful Hantana mountain range. The guests have a restaurant are where they could bring their food and have it. Ayurvedic massage is done on request.
    Our place is located in a very convenient place which is about 1 km away from the city centre. It's just about 100 meters to a supermarket, food outlets, laundry, pharmacy and bakers. Plenty of tuk tuks and buses available to the city, if you are not tired its just 10 minutes walk to the city centre. Railway station is about 700 meters away. A tuk tuk from the main city center would charge Rs 200/- to 250/-. A tuk tuk from the railway station would cost Rs 200/-
  • Bernard and family were lovely and friendly. They were excellent hosts, willing to help with whatever concerns or questions I had. They even upgraded me for free from a room in the house to the apartment as it was vacant the evening I was there! Breakfast was superb - a feast in itself. I thoroughly enjoyed my time here!

    Stephanie2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • The whole family was awesome... super friendly and they organized everything for us. The communication was super good. Bernard helped us booking the train from Kandy to Ella and this was more than amazing because we didn’t pay that much like other tourist and we were save with the ticket. They also dropped us at the train station. The breakfast was super delicious, I didn’t know lots of the food and tasted everything and all was soooo nice. Thank you for everything :)

    Christine2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed for 3 nights with Bernard and his lovely wife and would absolutely recommend this place!

    Artur2020-03-05T00:00:00Z

  • It was a great stay at bernard. He and his family were really friendly, the breakfast with this amazing view was also great. Bernard organized daytrips for us and also he picked us up from the airport. We can complety reommend this host to everybody. Thanks for having us :)

    Lea2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay for two nights at "Great view at Bernards" was way better than expected. He and his family were really welcoming and heart warming, they took time for us and had great tips for being in Kandy and to avoid tourist traps. The typical Sri Lankan breakfast was amazing and was taken at the promised great view. If we go back to Kandy one time we will definetly stay at Bernard's again!

    Mirco2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent hospitality in a wonderful house. Everything is just good about this place. Nice clean rooms, super nice terasses with amazing view. Good breakfast and best of all - the best hosts you can find. Bernard can even arrange tours for you -we went on the most amazing trek in the knuggle range. Can only recommend.

    A perfect place for couples or families, right on Dalawella Beach. Iconic Frog Rock and popular Wijaya Beach Restaurant are steps away, right down from your plunge pool and deck. Find two ensuite bedrooms upstairs with ample living space downstairs
    Calm and light with stunning views from the master bedroom and all downstairs living areas.
    You'll be on one of the south coast's prettiest beaches, with rock pools on one end and a reef break on the other. If you turn your attention inland, you can walk or ride to nearby rice paddy fields and Under Rock Temple. And of course you have historic Galle Fort 7km away
  • THOSE. VIEWS. Best Airbnb I have ever stayed in, I would go back in a heartbeat. Prepare to never leave the house because you can’t stop staring at the bluest ocean mere feet from the house. Stay here- you won’t regret it!

  • Skinny Beach House is such a wonderful place! You couldn't ask for a better location, waking up to the waves and being able to swim with turtles on Wijaya beach. The villa itself is very spacious and comfortable, however the second bedroom can be a bit loud due to noise from the main road. Sashi and Proboth are both lovely people and will make sure you have everything you need during your stay, the breakfast alone is enough to make us want to return!!

  • We loved our stay at skinny beach. The location is steps away from a nice beach and a restaurant. The villa itself was very airy and open with lots of sunlight. The amenities in the villa were perfect for a beach stay. Cecilia helped us at every step from reminding our permits to accommodating our meal preferences.

  • I don’t even know where to begin!! Skinny Beach house is absolutely incredible - We are a family of 5 from New Zealand. Our children are aged 3, 5 and 7. After visiting many beaches around Sri Lanka we can agree that Dalawella is one of the best, if not the best, there’s something for everyone - 20m to the left is a huge natural swimming pool which is ideal for kids and also for snorkelling - turtles come into this area and swim around, directly out from is another great spot for snorkelling in the waves with turtles but has a strong current (fine for adults but less suitable for kids) then there are also two epic surf breaks directly out front as well! The surf is great for intermediate/experienced riders but it’s also very close to other beaches (a few minutes in a tuktuk) for beginners surf and lessons. Sashi and Proboth are absolutely wonderful - they make incredible meals which we highly recommend. Proboth can take you places in his tuktuk for small set prices (which we’d definitely recommended as he is a very safe driver) There’s a small convenience store a few minutes walk away which stocks nappies, milk, cereal, snacks, treats etc and a fruit stall. I literally can not fault this place, would undoubtedly recommend it to others and would stay here again in a heartbeat! We will be dreaming of the magnificent views from Skinny forever! You won’t regret booking this place!!

  • The Skinny Beach House is one to remember. It has everything you need and is such a beautiful space. It is perfectly located on the beach! We were even luckier to have the ocean out front filled with sea turtles. Sashi and Proboth were both absolutely lovely and made sure we were look after.

    Jaimee2019-11-20T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful charming beach villa complemented by a great location. Stayed two days at Skinny beach and loved our time there.

    Yohann2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Skinny Beach House was great. First and foremost - Cecilia was completely available for any requests and was very quick and helpful with her replies, and was kind enough to not only manage transfers to and from the airport (in a very comfortable car), but also allowed us early check in and late check out. The house is great and fantastic for a group - great communal areas and comfortable sleeping space. The beach right at the foot of the property was great! The on ground team were helpful in preparing breakfast and being on top of keeping the house clean and supporting in any way. Thanks for a great trip!

    Visit my place where you can have direct views to Little Adam Speak, Ravana Rock and Ravana Water Fall from balcony with having a drink or meal. Wake up by 5:45 AM and just open your bedroom windows the SUN is waiting for you to say GOOD MORNING. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families (with kids). #FREE BREAKFAST ☕️ 🍔🍲🥛🍉🍌🍇🥗
    Nice little home with four bedrooms, as the name says it has a really great view of the Ravana falls, Ravana rock and Llittle Adam's peak. Just 10 minutes walking distance from the city. The host running a restaurant in top floor specially for his guests and you can have wonderful view while having your meals.
    You can do many things in Ella , this is one of the tourism attracting hot spots in Sri Lanka specially in the hill country. The people who come to Ella generally visit to Ravana rock, Little Adam's peak, Ravana cave and Ravana falls
  • Amazing view at Namals place! Very clean room and great hospitality from namal and his family. In all they were great hosts, actually the best we’ve had in Sri Lanka. Great place with a good distance from the centre.

    Matilda2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Nice veranda with private swing for two to enjoy the view. Don't bother taking a tuktuk to get in town. Without luggage you can easily walk down to the railway track an follow them to the station (but take care, it is dangerous and prohibited)

    Christoph2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing gem with spectacular views over the landscape. Sunrise is definitely worth getting up for! It is a few flights of stairs (and some uneven) to reach the property. However, the owner assisted in moving our luggage from the car to the room which was appreciated. There is no AC in the room, however there is a fan and it is cool in the morning/evening. I would definitely stay here again if I returned to Ella.

    Karan2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Mr Namal and his employee were very friendly, helpful, hospitable. Delicious breakfast with amazing view. They helped with organizing of our trips around Ella. We can recommend it for 100%

    Natalia2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing view and a delicious breakfast

    Brandon2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Namal's place is in a great location, with everything you need within arm's reach. We received some very helpful tips on what to see and do from our host's helper. The view from our balcony/the upstairs eating area made our stay especially memorable. We got up extra early each morning just to see the sun rise.... truly worth it! Highly recommend staying here.

    Mia2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • The room is good, and the bathroom is nice and clean. The view is amazing, make sure to get a room on the upper floor! Sunrise is really beautiful to watch on the privat swing. Shower has hot water, there is a fridge and everything else you need. The beds are a little short but comfortable :) The breakfast is amazing, get the local one! And there is the view as well of course.. Best to get there the first time by tuktuk from Ella Center. It’s an easy 10min walk on the rail tracks, but I recommend to try this on the way TO Ella Town the first time, so you know the way back! Trains are rather rare and slow, but be aware of it. The host helps you with ideas for trips..Ella Rock for example is a 2h hike away.

    Beni2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • As suggested by the name, this accomodation offers a really breathtaking view from its many balconies. The breakfast is also excellent. Would definately come back if ever in Ella again.

  • We spent 3 nights in the Red Parrot beach villa and felt right at home from the first moment. A beautiful clean house with everything you need. The tranquility and the view are priceless. if you need something and very friendly and accommodating. An absolute insider tip to slow down. The beautiful, deserted beach is right in front of the villa. The host Sudath is extremely friendly and responds to all wishes and needs. Highly Recommended! We would like to come again.

    Klaudija2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • What a wobderful place! The beach right in front of the terrace is totally beautiful and nearly empty. The appartment itself offers enough space and a good equipment. It‘s very stylish too. Sudath really made everything what he could to make our stay perfect. Answered very fast, asked if we‘re ok..there‘s a possibility to enjoy dinner, which was delicious and you really have to treat yourself with a massage, which Sudath can arrange for you. All in all - we didn‘t want to leave! Thanks!

    Giulia2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing location right on the water making it a very luxurious stay. Breakfast every morning by the wonderful staff is so delicious! In house dinner, massages and transport all can be organised by Sudath making everything so easy. Quick trip to hikkaduwa for snorkelling and lots of places to eat around the area. Would highly recommend this stay! Thank you Sudath and team!

    Tiarna2019-12-12T00:00:00Z
  • We are from Moscow! We had a family vacation with a child for 4 years! I really liked the location of the house in the center of the beach, a place for those who want privacy and get a quality relaxing holiday in a little crowded place near the ocean! The staff is friendly, I would also like to thank Gita and Booze for their quality work! As well as the owner of the villa Sudat, who is in touch every day and is always ready to help on emerging issues to make the stay in the villa comfortable! If possible, we will come back again !!

    Максим2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • My friend and I stayed in this really amazing accommodation! Location: perfect. On the beach and not too far from the shops either. Space: great. Can relax outside, use the kitchen or be very comfortable in the bedrooms. Cleanliness: excellent. The staff are constantly raking the beach and sweeping to ensure the villa areas are looking good. Host and staff: FAULTLESS. Sudath and his team go above and beyond for their guests. Always on call, willing to help, very friendly and completely non-intrusive. Also arranged some trips and transport for us. Extras: so many! We had bought chicken which they cooked beautifully for us, laid out a delicious breakfast for us, were awake at 2am with umbrellas for us to be sheltered from the rain for an early morning safari, really friendly dogs on the beach infront (I really miss one of them!).... We felt so happy and comfortable here! Thank you so much Sudath and I hope I get to return one day!

    Miriam2019-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • If you prefer a quiet place to stay and have the ocean just in front of your house, this is the place. Any time u can contact sudath and his stuff. Great place!

  • We had a great stay at Verse Collective. Our room was clean, super spacious, well designed and air conditioned – we loved the huge balcony too! The location was amazing – across the road from a beautiful beach (which was great for swimming at), close to local eateries, ATMs and shops and only 10/15 mins walk away (or very short tuktuk ride) from Hiriketiya. Communication prior to check in was great, the team were super accommodating with our 2am check in time and helped with organising transfers. The café/bar was also great place to hang out. Verse Collective is a really well designed, cool spot - high recommend!

    Laila2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place to stay. Great location, across the road from Dikwella main beach and five minutes away from Hiri beach. Stylish and relaxed place. Highly recommend.

    Sara2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Great space! Loved staying here for a week, working hard and going for daily swims literally across the road to Dikwella beach. The beach was very chill, not as many people compared to Hiri or other areas which is what I loved. If you’re looking for a space to chill out, work remotely and have good food daily I recommend staying here. The aircon rooms upstairs were a luxury, great internet speed and great hospitality from all the guys working there. Also walking distance to local supermarkets and other great spots to eat in close by Hirikiteya.

    Lora2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Huge room with balcony overlooking the sea. The location is incredible and with delicious breakfast included. It’s above a bar/restaurant but it’s not noisy at all and closed at 10.30pm so we weren’t kept up at all.

    Kelly2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • You will be staying at the place where everyone wants to be. You can tell by how busy the restaurant and the workspace are, that this place is amazing. The location is perfect, in the quiet part of beautiful Dikwella beach, but still a 10 min walk to Hiriketiya, where all the surfers and yogis hang out. First you'll be intrigued by the hip entrance with a small skating area, then the open restaurant with feel-good music, great vibes and delicious food and drinks. You'll be greeted by the warmest people and a refreshing welcome drink. You'll walk thru the cool little shop (you'll end up buying a tee or swimmers for sure), the communal area with a lounge, swing and an open creative space, where you'll see people working on their blogs, photos or just sharing ideas. Next to it, you'll find a long wall that hides the studios, then the communal washrooms (loved how stylish and clean they always are) and in the middle there's a stairway over a koi pond that leads to the upper level. There are 4 suites up there, with great views of the palm trees all around, and from the Ocean Suite you can see the restaurant and of course the gorgeous beach. The suite itself is very very spacious, with a super comfy bed, an area to put your clothes and a desk. The bathroom is quite tall and spacious, and has beautiful details on the shower and sink (don't need to bring toiletries). The best part of the room is opening those big wooden doors onto the balcony where you'll find a hammock and a little seating area where you can spend hours listening to the waves, birds and the good tunes downstairs. If you add up, the amazing place, vibes, drinks (coffee is insane) and delicious food (vegan haven), it's the formula for a great experience in the southern beaches. Will definitely visit again soon. You give it a go asap!

  • Had a great couple of days at Verse in Dickwella. Property is very stylish, with great amenities and great breakfast/coffee.

    Gillian2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place to stay in a great location for Dikwella beach. We loved the cool and stylish interiors at Verse. Our room was super spacious with a big, comfy bed, beautifully suspended mosquito net, air conditioning that worked brilliantly and cool touches like lots of lovely plants. We also liked chilling out on our spacious balcony which had a hammock. The shower was really good too and we liked that they supplied toiletries in glass bottles and not plastic. We also loved that Verse has a super handy water refill station. The food was tasty, the WiFi worked great, and the staff were helpful. We’d definitely recommend staying here!

    Pepper Jungle House is an architecturally designed, fully staffed villa perched on top of a lush jungle ridge. Nestled within landscaped gardens, the villa offers complete privacy. It offers the serenity of being inland whilst being just a few minutes away from the beaches and 4km to UNESCO Galle Fort. The villa is a blend of imported luxury and local charm. The villa comes fully staffed, including a private chef. Staff will go the extra mile to ensure you love your time in at Pepper.
    Light, contemporary, and very private spacious villa.
    The property overlooks the jungle towards the horizon and the Indian Ocean. The home is located approximately 5 minutes inland from the nearby village with shops, restaurants, and more.
  • Our stay at Pepper Jungle House was just perfect. Before we reached there James was super helpful in coordinating for our requirements. Once we reached the place - Chaminda & Sarath looked after us really well. The location of the house is just perfect. We tried to soak in the view and environment as much as we could. Highly recommend it to anyone who’s visiting Sri Lanka.

    Karan2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Super modern villa in the jungle near the ocean. This is the type of housing in which you begin to think about moving to warm countries for a long time) Not typical Sri Lankan architecture, stylish furniture and good plumbing. Branded shampoo, conditioner and shower gel with a pleasant smell. It can be seen that the owner approaches the matter with a soul and stands for the convenience of the guests. Great internet. The jungle makes relaxation unique - wild animals are at arm's length. We really enjoyed. At the same time, we were not embarrassed that in the whole villa an easy modernization is required. These are all trifles that do not affect vacation. caretakers of the villa have prepared a delicious dinner that we shared with friends, yes, perhaps, at a price it can be compared with restaurants nearby (12,000 rupees), but relaxing at home after surfing is gorgeous. Recommend

    Nikolay2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • This is a fantastic villa to stay in after a tour around the island. You will be welcomed by a kind and helpful staff which does everything to make your stay as easy and enjoyable as possible. We really recommend this house to others! The pictures are as beautiful as the reality. But be prepared that you have the animals very close to you, but we though this was a fantastic experience.

    Emmy2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • We really liked the villa, stylish interior, comfortable accommodation, very polite, friendly and unobtrusive staff. Responsive manager, a couple of times there were problems with electricity and the Internet, but they were immediately solved. The villa is located on a mountain in the jungle, we saw an iguana and many monkeys, some were right on the territory of the villa - a great immersion in the local nature.

    Olga2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • What an absolutely amazing 5 days! Chaminda and the team made our stay so special. I would highly highly recommend staying here. We didn't want to leave. The best 5 days of our 3 week trip. Thank you Pepper Jungle House!
