We are happy to invite you to stay with us and enjoy the beautiful nature of Sri Lanka at lake Malayadi. Here you can still experience the authentic Sri Lankan lifestyle. We opened our Resort a year ago for local travelers and Backpackers.
We did finish most of the renovations now and would need to support with making it well known in all parts of the world and let travelers know, that we are here. We also always need some support for our local team with all different kind of works. We are a team of locals and Europeans happy to share our cultures while having a BBQ or bonfire or play some drums together. One of our favorite things is to go out with our boat on the lake Malayadi and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

To everyone, who is interested to come from November till January:
From November the rainy season starts on the East coast of Sri Lanka, where we are located.

If you are looking for sun please travel to the south of Sri Lanka during November - January.
