About Awards and from happy Guests
Since our opening in 2012, we were rewarded with the ‘Certificate of Excellence’ and the ‘Traveler’s Choice Award’ from Tripadvisor, for what we are truly grateful.
We are especially proud of earning the ‘Hall of Fame’ Award from Tripadvisor in 2019,
recognizing 5 consecutive years of consistently high ratings from travelers.
What a great retreat! I could totally relax and re-energize some days after my round trip through this amazing country. The owners did use the last year to renovate the house and it feels like it was never closed. Healthy curries (they adjusted the spiciness to my taste), wonderful Hatha, Yin, and Aerial yoga classes, the amazing pool and just a short tuktuk drive to the beach or to Galle Fort (they organized it to be the same driver, so I was feeling very safe). Thanks to the super service I felt like a princess! It was a perfect mix! Thank you so much!

Excellent break at this lovely small hotel. The staff were great, attentive but not over intrusive.
Had a very informative tour of the surrounding tea plantation along with the various fruits etc.
It is an 8 bedroomed colonial style building with the restaurant on the veranda overlooking the infinity pool onto the forest where you can witness the monkeys jumping from tree to trees.
The owner Elke along with Prasad and all the staff make sure you have an enjoyable stay. It does not have an alcohol license but they will arrange for tuk-tuk to pick up anything you want. It is a little off the beaten track but if you want a relaxing quiet base it is perfect. Probably the most enjoyable place we stayed in Sri Lanka.

This place is just a paradise, you can’t ask for more…. Food was very fresh and healthy, beautiful view from the balcony and nature around was just lovely. We felt very special and lucky to be there. Amazing swimming pool and very friendly staff. If you are looking for tranquility please visit this wonderful place. Chic and unique place with such a big attention to details to make your stay even more special.
