Inspired by the traditional Sri Lankan homes set in semi-wild tropical gardens, your host architect-artist Laki created this stylish cottage room opening out to the tree-filled garden.
The Orchard Habarana is perfectly located down a small village road, by the peaceful tourist town of Habarana. A commercial hub since ancient times, Habarana now sits in the middle of the Cultural Triangle, and is the hub for accessing the famous wild elephant Gathering at Minneriya & Kaudulla.

The space
The Orchard, is Laki’s dream. Professionally an architect, in heart and artist nature lover and conservationist, Laki has combined all these elements when creating his beloved Orchard. The stylishly created bedrooms with personal verandahs opening out to the lush tropical home garden given the name –The Orchard, Garden View Rooms. The Orchard Habarana has been built for you and for the wild creatures that live off all that we offer. Tropical fruit trees such as well-known verities of mangos and oranges, grow side by side with the more local wood apple, sour sop, jack fruit, etc. The undergrowth is carefully landscaped with plants that invite butterflies and dragon flies to join the birds and monkeys that feed on the fruit trees.
The carefully natured wilderness of The Orchard attracts fluttering butterflies, chirping birds and scampering squirrels as your constant companions, while endemic torque monkeys, fey wild rabbits and mouse deer will visit when least expected. Nature will hold you snugly in your room high in the canopy of trees. As you sit in the garden, you will feel the drama of the wild creatures busy in a lush green orchard.
It’s not all wilderness at The Orchard. Complementing natures’ treats we have ensured that all your comforts and needs are provided for. The room is air conditioned, with comfortable beds with crisp white linen, tea and coffee making facilities, mini refrigerator for your beer and fruit juices. We have even added a mini wardrobe – just to give you a break from living in your luggage!

Professionally I am an architect. But at heart an artist, nature lover and conservationist. And more than anything, a lover of Sri Lanka, my island home!
Despite living in the city of Colombo, most of my professional work has been in green areas where continuously experimented with modern usage of traditional building methods and spaces that are so much more sensitive to the environment that our current building habits.
My life as an artist, of course, blends in with my architecture as much as my love for nature and conservation.
As time moves on, I am creating my own dream space - a studio surrounded by nature, but in close proximity to the conveniences of a dynamic town. That is The Orchard Habarana. This I share with you as my guests, along with every thing I know and love about Sri Lanka.
Talk to you soon!

During your stay

“The Orchard Habarana will soon be my studio home away from my professional architect's space in Colombo. The artist in me is inspired by gentle interaction between nature and humans. The love I have for introducing like-minded guests to the incredible world of Sri Lankan nature inspired the way I designed The Orchard Habarana.
I love our long conversations, the sharing of ideas on the blend of nature, humans and art that make up our world. Hope to talk to you soon!” - Laki.
