  • Description


    We are a team that takes old properties and convert them in to Funky novel concepts. Chathura and Rosharn the directors are well experienced in the domain and have traveled well around the globe. Our Lead Creative Jessica is from the UK and is an expert in creativity of all types.

    The hostel is next to the Polgolla Dam which is part of the electricity generation reservoirs of Sri Lanka. With a magnificent view and lots of space to relax we are looking forward to building a blissful retreat.

    We are in the process of setting up a new hostel in Kandy. We are doing up the entire place with a theme using wooden pallets. We are right on front of a river and a famous hydro dam. Its a quiet place with lots of space.
    Would love some help over here if you would be interested.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You would be hosted at the location which is next to the longest river in Sri Lanka. We would be working with a multicultural team and you would learn about Sri Lankan culture and others.

    We are all about creating new things in new ways as a collaborative team. These days we have been working with Bamboo and it has been a lot of fun.

  • Help


    We are converting an old colonial mansion in to a retreat hostel. We intend on going on an echo/up-cycling theme and looking for creative people to join us for the project.

    We would love to have volunteers who can help us with general maintenance, cleaning , painting, murals, gardening and carpenters who can help us build unique furniture. If you skills are not listed still please do get in touch I am sure there will always be something we could do together.

    The main tasks we have at the moment are :

    1) Planning the spaces and creative ideas to maximize the potential of the property
    2) Social media and marketing
    3) Painting walls inside and outside
    4) Murals
    5) Creating furniture from used Pallets and wood
    6) Gardening
    7) General Maintenance (Mechanical / Electrical / Plumbing)
    8) Managing guests (front office)
