  • Description


    we are located in Ella. The land, has many years ago, been blessed as sacred grounds. This blessing was passed and honored because of the purity of the lands and the values practiced by the people living on the land. One of the values practiced was to eat only, fruit and vegetables provided by the land. In order to honor these past blessings the resort has chosen to continue with this tradition of indulging on vegetarian meals only for both staff and guests.
    While this may seem scary to many meat lovers, we can assure that our traditional Sri Lankan chefs and menu will not disappoint anyone.

    Currently we are looking for farming, yoga, vegan chefs, meditators, adventure socialists and volunteers who come and join with in our facility. who expert on culinary or any other farming art and specialized areas. we provide family atmosphere but are mindful that this is a business. We would love to have foreign guests that could help us with these all areas. All accommodation and meals will be provided during stay with us. Yoga, farming ,vegan chefs, meditators adventure socialists will be expected to set a schedule and help guest involved.
    we have 50-60 locally paid staff with several positions for instance kitchen staff, farming staff, cleaning staff and management.

    The work hours are not restricted and you can work as you wish.

    While we are on many booking sites, we are spread very well through the backpacker community by word of mouth as our guests really enjoy their time with us. We provide a very relaxed atmosphere, awesome, vegetarian Sri Lankan dishes
    prepared by our local cook, multiple room options most popular being our beds, open air dorm room situation on the upper deck and facing the jungle. We, the owners, our staff and our energetic volunteers try to provide a family atmosphere so when guests leave, they are no longer a guest but part of the family. You will be given separate accommodation and delicious sri lankan type meals and better affection by our staff. you will be amazed with our environment.

    our project is looking for
    people who love the nature and adventure
    who loves vegan and organic foods
    who loves meditation and yoga
    who wants to learn and watch the farming and harvesting vegetables and fruits
    who loves to see our traditional foods making
    who love the river bath
    people who loves to sleep in very peaceful and calming environment

    hope you will contact us for your adventurous life welcome to our family!
