Meet Suresh

Ask a question

We are a family of three: Suresh (me), Kala (my wife) and Pahan (our son). All of us speak English fluently. We are also passionate travelers who have been to many parts of the world. We are also interested in music, sports, movies, exploring new cultures and gardening. We look forward to welcoming you and experiencing Sri Lankan life with us!


We were there on last day of our trip. I loved everything about this place. Suresh and Kala are wonderful people who helped us with everything and gave us great tips about Colombo. They invited us for the ceremony in their neighbor's house and it was wonderful experience for us and the best end of our trip.

I arrived at the homestay of Suresh and Kala. Once I arrived Suresh and Kali already opened the door with the words “Ayubowan” what means “welcome and may you have a long life”. What a blessing to start my trip like this. After some tea and some typical sweets I had a short nap. After I woke up Suresh and Kali had made an “Ayubowan” at the floor. What a warm welcome! They totally understand hospitality. During my stay they served me as much local food as I could consume in those 2 days. This all makes this homestay a place that feels like home. I also had the chance to see how Suresh, Kali and her family cooked a typical dinner. Preparing the dinner was a lot of fun. Just being around them in the kitchen and seeing how they prepared typical Sri Lankan food couldn’t be better. The explanation of the ingredients they used and why they used it was very interesting. The following day it was already time to go. After a typical and delicious Sri Lankan breakfast: Dhal Curry, Pol Sambol, Mackerel Fish (what they not always eat in the morning) and bread I had to say “Bohoma Isthuthi” (Thank You). Suresh & Kala are the perfect homestay to start or leave Sri Lanka!
