These two rooms are in the main lodge next to the dining area. Maya and Kip are two double rooms with a large shared bath with Hot water. Adina is a single with it's own bathroom with hot water

The space
These rooms are all in the main Building where the kitchen and the dining hall is located. There's a large reading room and tables in case you want to play a game of cards or just watch TV

Guest access
The Large Man made Tank, Parakrama Samudraya. Most time of the year you could take a bath in the tank and maybe take our canoe out for a paddle for a small fee, or take a fishing boat out from next door to see will elephants gathering on the other side of the tank (seasonal)

Other things to note
Please note that the Entrance fee to the Polonnaruwa Nature Sanctuary/Archaeological grounds is USD 25 per adults and half of that for a child. The site office opens at 7.15am daily
We have quite a few small mammals as well as over 100 species of birds right out side our premises in the small forest patch we have fought tooth and nail to preserve from the invading locals. You could walk in this patch during the day to watch birds or take a boat to the bird Island that we managed to legalize as a Bird Sanctuary 500m from the shores of the tank.

I fell in love with Polonnaruwa and it's population of toque macaques and the other two langurs as soon as I'd finished the first session in the field one weekend 15 years ago. It's been the jungles: monkeys, birds and other animals which took most of my interest. We own and run this research site in Polonnaruwa which can host 24 people at one time for studies or just for staying over to take a boat tour or enjoy a weekend with a stroll in the lake-bed or the forest at any time of the year.
