    Staying with us means meeting lots of interesting and nice people as well as being part of a caring and familiar team. Our guesthouse and team is pretty small, so you are not a nameless workaway here, but a teammember. We are interested in your skills as well as your story, and want you to enjoy your time at our place you can get some knowledge about hospitality as well as running a hotel/retreat at one of Sri Lankas most popular beachtowns.

    What else ...

    Weligama, literally meaning ‘sandy village’ is a little piece of paradise where you can unwind and let the modern-day distractions become a distant memory. Growing in popularity with savvy travellers due to the near perfect all year-round weather, friendly locals, delicious local cuisine and picturesque sunsets …. what is there not to like. Also some of the best surf spots around Weligama are just a few minutes away, as well as lots of nice places to explore (for example Galle, Mirissa, Hikkaduwa).
