there are not many places like this left in the world.... it has a lovely 'family' atmosphere, with an evening buffet where everyone sits around big tables and swaps travelling/surfing tales.....
we stayed for 6 nights in one of the treehouses. They are comfortable and breezy and set in a beautiful garden. Wild birds fly in the trees and it is a peaceful oasis away from the heat and tuk tuk drivers.
Ranga, Kuna and his staff offer first class hospitality - highlight would have to be the fish BBQ on the Friday night.
Fruitsalad, curd and treacle also highly recommended - as is the Sri Lankan coffee.
thanks so much for a lovely stay guys - see you next time :)
