The chalet is tucked away in the corner of the man-made forest at which we inspired its name. Large and spacious with a bigger than king-size bed it is perfect in case you want to stay grounded and if you want a little more privacy. The cushioned outer porch allows you to put your heels up and just enjoy the surroundings or catch up on some reading.

The mud chalets are unique in how they are built, using the age old practice of clay and mud walls which literally breathe. The walls absorb the cold and moisture at night, which help to keep the interior cool during the heat of the day.

Each chalet also comes with a fan in case the natural cooling isn't enough, a larger than king-size bed, mosquito netting, a cool box and a set of binoculars as well as its own collection of unique furniture and spaces.

Meet Charitha

Member since: April 2014

Hi, my name is Charitha. This place is a dream, a concept, a connection and a business venture all rolled into one. A place in the South of Sri Lanka built for responsible travelers to experience the true Sri Lankan life. It’s a return to basics and a lesson on how to enjoy simple pleasures, healthy food and sustain a lifestyle that retains a message of giving back to the community, our planet and ourselves. I am continuing to explore new ways to contribute to the Triple Bottom Line - learning better ways to create a positive change, give you an authentic experience, and ensure that we retain the “essence” of Sri Lanka and what it means to live in this beautiful country.
