No mains electricity so no fans or a/c, so boy was it hot! That said accommodation was great, food was authentic and staff willing to go the extra mile. We really enjoyed our stay in this remote but friendly place. This is a picture of our accommodation, separate sleeping and sitting areas, open shower and loo, and dining area. Finally if you’re in to yoga this is for you.
This was the second 2nd and 3rd night stops for my Discover & Connect Yoga and Meditation Retreat. The accommodation, staff, atmosphere were 2nd to none. I could not recommend this more highly. If you are seeking a true authentic Sri Lanka experience don't pass this by.

My adult sons and I recently stayed at The Mudhouse for a family holiday and we were all very impressed with everything! The accommodation was very comfortable, very clean and well maintained. The staff were exceptional in their service and friendliness. We had delicious food every single meal and loved the fact that much of the food was grown on the premises. There was always plenty to do with personalized activities offered each day, we particularly loved our bike riding excursions to see the local sights. The guide for all the activities, Douglas, was funny, friendly and very knowledgeable. I would not hesitate to recommend this place! It was fantastic!
From the minute we arrived at the Mudhouse we knew it was special. Everyone was extremely welcoming and that didn’t stop for the five days we were here. Mahesh, Douglas and Duna the amazing chef gently guided us to wonderful experience after wonderful experience. From early morning birdwatching (what abundance!), a guided tour around this wonderful set up with its kitchen garden, amazing houses, ponds and native forest, swimming in the fresh water ponds, to cycling on the brilliant bone shaker bikes to the ancient rock temples near by, cooking lessons and night walks to spot the loris, roosting birds and night time animals. Even a trip to the atm was an adventure which took in roosting fruit bats, painted storks and close inspection of the fish and sweet corn sellers by the side of the road. We had the place virtually to ourselves and felt totally spoilt by the end of our stay. Such attention and care! Our house was huge and extremely clean and comfortable- but the tree frogs did like living in the loo and jumping from the sink making teeth brushing an excitement, giant snails, land monitors and Lucy the dog also added to the night time fun. Our four year old daughter loved it! If we had our time in Sri Lanka over we would base ourselves entirely at the Mudhouse and take longer trips from there. It is a truly special place and one I am so grateful to have experienced. Thank you to everyone at the Mudhouse for taking such care of us and making our stay so special. …
