Mr Louis Siriwardena
Your Host and The Team
“We offer an authentic rural Sri Lankan experience in the heart of a working coconut estate that has been in my family for generations. It has always been a place for me to go to unwind. I want to share with my guests the unique opportunity of waking up in the morning, breathing in the air filled with aromas of spices, and enjoying breakfast surrounded by exotic plants, coconut trees and colourful birds flitting from branch to branch. It is really more of a sanctuary than a hotel.”
