Uda Walawe National Park

Home to over 700 Asian Elephants, Crocodiles and many Birds of Prey, this wildlife experience is just 90 minutes away.

Yala National Park

Prime leopard homeland, this wildlife park is again, about 90 minutes from our gates. Packed with breathtaking and rare wildlife sightings, jeep tours can be arranged both at dawn and during the afternoon.

Bundala Reserve

Perfect for birders, visit this nature reserve for a plethora of tropical birdlife, exotic reptiles and colourful amphibians. Bundala is ideal for an altogether different look in to tropical wildlife.

Marine Safaris

Being located along the beautiful southern coastline means we can organize Blue Whale, Sperm Whale and Dolphin watching during season. Scuba diving excursions are also a definite possibility.

Rekawa Sanctuary

You should not need to leave the comfort of our hotel or suite even, to experience Sri Lanka’s wildlife. Located in a nature sanctuary, our home is frequently visited by Grey Langur monkeys, water monitors, peacocks and other exotic wildlife – especially birds, due to the rich tropical mangrove ecosystem we are surrounded by. Our boutique property in Tangalle truly offers the best of all worlds.


The dramatic beach is the stuff of legend. Old stories tell of the ten-headed King Ravana landing his peacock-drawn, flying chariot here. What’s more, the rocky terrain and sandy beaches of the location are breath-taking enough for a visit.

Galle Fort & The Galle Literary Festival

Host to what is dubbed the best literature festival in the world, this colonial fort is a thriving living heritage site, put together over many centuries by Dutch, Portuguese and British colonials. The Fort’s multicultural appeal and design have been bringing visitors within its ramparts for years.

Low Country Tea Estates

We can send you off for the day to Sri Lanka’s low-country hills to see how some of the finest Ceylon tea is grown and harvested. A steam railway journey to Ella comes with waterfalls, tea estates and spectacular hill scenery views as far as the eye can see, and should be considered prior to or at the end of your stay with us.

Mulkirigala Rock Temples

Travellers often think the historical and cultural parts of the island are isolated to the central cultural triangle. This is far from true. Culture and history are in abundance everywhere. The nearby Mulkirigala Rock Temple Complex is just one example. A few hundred hand-carved steps will lead you to the ancient temples, their spectacular rock frescos and sculptures are bound to take your breath away.

Kataragama Sacred Site

Considered by many to be the most sacred of all religious sites on the island, Kataragama is a hugely important place of pilgrimage for Sri Lankans of many faiths. The Kataragama site is a melting pot of faiths and religions; Buddhists, Muslims and Hindu's all hold the space sacred to their beliefs and celebrate special calendar events with great processions, ceremonies and rituals - all with deep respect of one another's faith.

Sinharaja Forest Reserve

The hilly virgin rainforest, part of the Sri Lanka lowland rain forests ecoregion, was saved from the worst of commercial logging by its inaccessibility. The reserve's name translates as Lion Kingdom.The reserve is only 21 km (13 mi) from east to west, and a maximum of 7 km (4.3 mi) from north to south, but it is a treasure trove of endemic species, including trees, insects, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals.

Surfing around Tangalle

For much of the year, several uncrowded nearby bays are suitable for beginners, intermediate and advanced surfers. When you arrive at the hotel, simply ask us to check local conditions and book a morning/afternoon session with a local surf instructor on your behalf. Feedback from guests is always excellent, especially with regards issues of safety, quality of instruction - and having fun! Most beginners stand up on their first session, regardless of their age!! Early booking essential/conditions permitting.
