    We own a Seafood Restaurant & Beach Chalets in Sri Lanka in Dikwella. We’ve got an amazing beach and our restaurant and chalets got such an chilled out vibe. Ideal for safe sea bathing, snorkelling, spot sea turtles or to chill. We have two ocean swings that is such a hit in instagram. The place is co-owned by three professionals: a Medical Doctor, an Engineer and an Operations Manager. We have 4 chalets with a unique design and a hostel. Looking for volunteers who could help us improve our services with their feedback and expereince.
