Get back to nature and enjoy rural Sri Lanka at its best
A playful and unusual rustic retreat fully immersed in nature with plenty to keep you occupied during your stay
Located on the outskirts of a village, this laid-back eco-retreat will transport you into the world of rural Sri Lankan life. Built to co-exist in harmony with the surrounding environment, a stay at the Mudhouse is a delightfully rustic experience in enchantingly designed huts all made from natural materials. With exceptional Sri Lankan hospitality, the staff ensure guests are well cared for from the moment they set foot on the property.
The authentic experience continues when it comes to dining, with traditional Sri Lankan meals prepared using clay pots over open fires. There is no set menu as produce used is fresh and seasonal, grown on their own organic farm. Meat is difficult to source locally so fish is often available instead, and guests can learn how to cook their favourite Sri Lankan dishes at the complimentary cooking classes.
During your stay you can venture out in the early morning for bird watching - trips generally last an hour or two and there are plenty of local species to spot. It's also worth visiting the nearby ancient Paramakanda Temple, perched on a rocky outcrop with spectacular views all around. Or why not go for a cycle or tuk tuk ride, have a picnic down by the lake, or check out Yapahuwa, one of Sri Lanka's best-preserved capitals. Alternatively, if you're visiting between November and April you can take a day trip up to Kalpitiya to watch dolphins in their natural habitat.
