Ravi, his wife, and his parents are perfect hosts. We stayed over New Year for the Sinhalese people meaning sharing in the festive foods prepared for all the family and guests calling by. The home is in a hillside village in the jungle. Nearest main road is a 15 minute walk. Accommodation is basic but offers a foothold into rural life. Loads of wildlife around and very peaceful. Ideal for anyone wanting to kick back from city life.
Thank you very much Ravi.
We stayed here with our daughters (13 and 11 ) for three nights. Ravi and his family were amazing hosts . Such a warm and lovely family. They kept us very nice company, we had a lots of laughs and we felt very comfortable.
Ravi took us hiking. That was exiting and wonderful. And Ravi organized the great experience to washing, feeding and riding an elephant. The dream of our daughter came true.
Munaweera and Rebecca cooked very delicious meals on the traditional way. The last evening was amazing. We song and danced with Munaweera.
When it was time to say good bye it felt like we left our new family.
We'll definitely come back here.
