Meals, drinks and snacks

The room price includes a western or Sri Lankan breakfast. As we are in a rural location we assume you will book half board, but please let us know if you want only B&B. If so, dinners would cost you slightly more (Rs1,750/- p.p.) than if you book on a half board basis. We provide both Sri Lankan and western/international cuisine and can cater for any dietary needs if we are informed in advance. Children aged 6 – 12 half price (under 6 free).

We do not provide lunches but there is a hotel with a restaurant a short walk away or you may be able to use our kitchen to prepare your own lunches between 12 and 2pm. Whenever possible we include home grown vegetables and fruit, and eggs from our own hens.

Tea, coffee, biscuits, fruit and drinking water are free on a help-yourself basis.

We are not licensed to sell alcohol but please bring your own. You cannot buy alcohol in our local village so stock up before you reach us!
