Puranagama Eco Lodge is a perfect place to stay if you just want to relax and enjoy yourself. The traditional huts are very inviting and close to the Rekawa lagoon near Tangalle. It´s a very quiet place as there are no other houses around. In the evening you can see lots of animals (especially birds) there because they also stay at the lagoon overnight. There are three huts you can rent as acommodation and one really nice restaurant. We stayed in the hut right at the lagoon for two nights which was lovely... You can see the birds flying in every evening directly from your veranda. The food was typical sri lankan and very delicious. Also the staff was really friendly and helped us to get around with their own tuktuk. I definitley recommend this place because on the one hand you can relax and unwind perfectly and on the other hand you have a lot of interesting things to do around. It´s not far to the beautiful national parks like Yala or Bundala. Also Tangalle or the beaches in the surrounding are well worth visiting. One last thing I want to mention is that it´s a charity project. So with the income of the tourists, the Eco Lodge supports the construction of a school closeby for the tsunami village which was founded after the tsunami.
If you´re looking for a relaxing place like that, I can really recommend it!!! They also have a homepage where you can check out some more pictures... www.puranagama.de
