  • Description


    We have an awesome hostel right across the Kabalana beach where also one of the best surf spot in the south is located.

    It's a lovely hostel that offers a fabulous view of the jungle and the beach while you are enjoying your drink/meal in the garden. The house is surrounded by the jungle and the coconut trees.

    We are having a housekeeper and a receptionist already in the house. We are also sharing the space with a restaurant where all the staff is locally recruited. So this project does not include any daily hostel/restaurant work related jobs. You can of course come up with ways and know hows for optimisations and improvements and we would love to exchange your ideas..

    We are 2 hours drive south of Colombo airport. All the main attraction of the south is a 20 minutes drive range.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We certainly favor fun & conviviality. We want you to have fun so that our guests have fun. Help planning different concept nights would be awesome. Any kind of creativity is highly appreciated:)
    For example we want to organise auction nights during the season. Where all the local art stuff is collected and sold with an open cost system. You can benefit meeting with local artists and craft mans.
    Also since we are highly connected with the neighbours you would be invited to their places as guests where you can experience a true Sri Lankan culture&food:)
    Lastly, this season we will initiate a waste management system and we will start informing the neighbours about how they can manage their garbages in terms of separating the recycled and non recycled ones and then what to do with them.
    Unfortunately locals just burn their garbage:(

  • Help


    We need help:
    -Photography and videography is very important in the house. Any talent in this regard will be highly valued to exchange ideas and create a intellectual environment in this house in order to exchange their expertise.

    -Local projects in the neighbourhood( visiting the schools nearby for English teaching)

    -Coming up some ideas for local people especially tuk-tuk drivers to improve their way of work (developing a ratecard and standards for the communication with tourists)

    -There will be always some artists in the house. We like to keep a few rooms reserved as an art residence. Where people come do some painting, junk art, music or craftsmanship and share their stories..
