  • Description


    Hi we are Manoj and Elke, a Sri Lankan-Belgian couple who just opened a small boutique homestay in the beautiful village of Gurubebila, near to Weligama, in the South of Sri Lanka. Elke is a yoga teacher and has a small rooftop yoga shala where she teaches daily classes for retreat guests and outside visitors. Manoj is a hairdresser and has a small hair salon in the backyard. We like to share our passions and meet like-minded people who can give us a helping hand and become part of the family.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We love to share and learn, we can offer you free yoga classes, exchange in Sri Lankan culture, language, and cooking. We live in a laid-back village near to the best surfing spots, within 5 min walk from one of Sri Lanka's most stunning beaches, and nearby nature and paddy fields. Still near to the cities, but away from the big crowd so you can enjoin a relaxing stay.
