I set up Saraii Village as I love traveling to this part of the Island, where it's close to the beach and to a host of nature reserves, lakes and historical sites... and the land being Organic is a huge plus too...
I am based in Colombo but I travel frequently to Saraii. Hence, most often I do not get to meet the AirBnB guests, but you will be looked after well by the caretakers and staff at the hotel.
I've open up my treasured getaway to guests as I would like them to enjoy and experience it the same way I have... I am a believer that each of us can do something in our own small way to help others understand why and how to respect and take care of our environment. I welcome all responsible travelers to come see Saraii Village, which will showcase the true essence of Sri Lanka...
