The Lake Castle is a magnificent space located at Kogalla Lake, just outside Habaraduwa, in the Southern Provence of Sri Lanka. This hidden oasis is only a 5-minute tuk-tuk ride from town and the white sanded Habawadura beach. Great Surf-Spots, Unawatuna and the historical Fort of Galle are only 15-30minutes away. The castle-like villa offers stunning views, surrounded by nature. Here time really slows down. The lakes calmness is not only breathtaking but creates the perfect spot to relax.

The space
Nature is always at the door. Expect to be woken to the sounds and sights of monkeys who feast on the abundant fruit trees. Get captured by the eagles wafting in the air on their daily round, observing the lake life from above, accompanied by sparrows, kingfishers, parrots, woodpeckers, and an endless catwalk of other animals. You might also meet the friendly lizards, meerkats and a crocodile if you are lucky. Oh, and did we mention fruit? Depending on the season the garden supplies its guests with jackfruit, mangos - lots of mangos, coconuts, pepper, chilli and soon lots of vegetables as well.

Your hosts, Stefan and Jane are both Yoga Teachers with the idea to turn this peaceful place into a Yoga School. For now, everything is kept simple. The rooms spark off with comfy beds, charming sunrises, breathtaking views during the day and not to forget the glory of the full moon at night. The spacious deluxe room has a king-size bed with the option to add another mattress for 1-2 more people.
The open space downstairs invites you with an infinity pool overlooking Kogalla lake combined with a big open kitchen, free to use for all guests.

Also available on site is a fast 4G wifi hotspot for those working from their new home, unlimited water and tea, bananas on tap and of course accidental bird watching.

You can also just rent one of the two rooms individual.
The big room is super spacious, with glass front and an amazing view overlooking the lake. It contains a king-size bed with the option to add an additional double mattress on the floor. The smaller room is absolutely charming as well, with the same view and a double bed. Please contact Stefan&Jane for more details about prices and availability.

Guest access
As a guest you will have full access to all treasures the Lake Castle has to offer, including hanging out at the infinity pool, becoming creative in the kitchen, exploring the vegetable garden or enjoying the endless view on the platform on top of the house.

Other things to note
Breakfast and dinner can be served for an additional fee if the chef is available.

Location

Habaraduwa, South province, Sri Lanka

The lake castle is surrounded by a charming local village. Everyone is super friendly and smiling, of course, it's Sri Lanka. You might get invited to a boat tour by the fisherman next door and get to enjoy his wife's local cuisine.
