    We are an Ecolodge near the Sinharaja Rainforest Reserve, a biodiversity hotspot of Sri Lanka.

    On 6 acres of hill land on an old Tea Estate we are running a small, remote Eco Lodge, consisting of 6 rooms and a restaurant.

    This project was started in 2013 by two hard working nature lovers from scratch. Since about three years we host guests from all over the world for about half of the year.

    Besides hosting guests (which isn't all year around), we have some spices and fruit trees growing and plan to grow more vegetables to be able to live off our land.

    We believe, that through Eco Tourism and self sustainable living we can contribute to raise local peoples awareness on the value of the Rainforst and helping to give alternatives to Deforestation due to expanding tea plantations and other mono cultures.

    It's a good opportunity to learn about living simple, close to nature in a beautiful place off the beaten path. Through interaction with our workers and neighbours it is an interesting way to learn about Sri Lankan culture.

    We have started to build a Yoga Shala by our sacred big Banyan tree and need a Yoga and Meditation teacher from December on.

    We also need help to look after guests sometimes and maintain the garden (which is in it's beginning stage).
    A bit of daily housekeeping like sweepings around the houses and keeping the paths clear of weed and leaves might be another task.

    Since we are close to nature, you should not be too scared of wildlife (eg. spiders, leeches). They might look scary sometimes but there is nothing dangerous to worry about in nature.

    The accommodation is a mud hut situated nearby a river and with big rainforest trees. The room has currently two bunk beds and can accommodate up to four people.

    Due to the mild climate we have only few mosquitos at night time and don't need AC or Fan.

    We cook vegetarian food like rice and curry.

    The Sinharaja Rainforest Reserve is the local attraction where tours can be arranged on demand.

    Uda Walawa is popular national park mostly visited to spot elephants, it's about 2 h by bus from here.

    In the nearby village Kotapola is the locally famous ancient buddhist cave temple Getabaruwa Dewalaya, situated on a hill (458m above sea level) which is worth a visit. Or just take a relaxed walk on our local Batandura road and experience authentic village life. You won't find any tourists here and the locals are often surprised to see "white faces".

    About 3 hours by local bus down south you can enjoy the sea with some good Surf spots around Weligama, Midigama, Matara and some other places. About 6 to 7 hours by bus up north the higher hillcountry is a popular aera to visit.
