Saraii's pioneers are now the Mud Chalet Suites. They are large and spacious with bigger than king-size beds and are perfect for the visitors wanting to stay grounded.
Our Mud Chalet Suites are cozily placed for comfort. One faces the rising sun and is surrounded by garden patches of organic fruits and vegetables. The other is tucked away in the corner of the man-made forest at Saraii which inspired its name.
Private and spacious with a fan for additional cooling the Mud Chalet Suites are best loved for their larger than king-size beds.
The cushioned outer porches of each suite at our eco lodge in Sri Lanka allows guests to put their heels up and just enjoy the surroundings or catch up on some reading. The original mud chalets are unique in how they are built, using the age old practice of mud walls which literally breathe. The Sri Lankan villager was a true expert at sustainable housing and Saraii learnt from the best. The walls absorb the cold and moisture at night which help keep the interior cool during the heat of the day. Each chalet also comes with a fan in case the natural cooling isn’t enough, a larger than king-size bed, mosquito netting, a cool box and a set of binoculars.
Saraii has a very homely feel to it and guests have access to all areas of the property. (Other than the private rooms of other guests) There's a large restaurant and hangout area for all guests.
Beautiful and charming location in the South of Sri Lanka. Rural village with the lake at a walking distance.
There's public transport (buses) and tuk tuks. We can also arrange for transport - private cars or vans as well. Closest International Airport is just about 15 / 20 mins away, which has direct fights to Colombo International Airport almost everyday.
Hunting of any animal is strictly forbidden. (For e.g. peacocks, tortoise, etc.)
Use the tree houses responsibly and follow instructions / guidance of the staff at the property.
Do not try to climb up or down the tree house under the influence of alcohol.
Smoking is not advised, as we like to keep our environment clean & fresh.
You can dump your laundry in the laundry bags provided.
Use of bicycles - If riding on main roads, please ensure your safety with appropriate gear.
Please ensure you are properly attired at all times so that you don’t shock/ disrespect other guests at the Saraii.
Be kind to the stray dogs that hang around, they are here as Saraii is the only place where they can get a decent meal. They are friendly and may try to act as your guide. Adopt them if you like...
:) DO NOT Keep your shoes and other property outside as the dogs may use them as a chew toy and the management cannot be responsible for this.

I set up Saraii Village as i love traveling to this part of the Island, where its 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've open up my treasued 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...
