Solitude - Relax, rejuvenate and unplug in this ultimate getaway. You can gaze at the stars, and listen to the sounds of nature from your cozy warm bed. Read or nap, take a swim in the lake 2min away, enjoy long walks and explore the nearby village. There is a small kitchen but restaurants are 15min walk or 5min cycle (3 X provided) ride away.

For those who love nature I totally recommend this place. A little bit far from the village but that what we want. A real escape in Sri Lanka nature.

I was born in Sri Lanka but I travel quite regularly and that continues to provide me with travellerinsights which help me improve what I do as a host. It is a great feeling to being able to contribute positively (however big or small) to someone's experience of your home…
Interaction with guests
When I am in Sigiriya, I would love to meet up with you. But my local friends will certainly help you in whatever way they can. But I am always contactable at all times.
