About this listing
Built on Saraii’s oldest Palu tree, Nest is your home away from home. Just like Crib, this tree house too comes with an exclusive Ewok-like landing space with a spectacular view. Nest can accommodate 2+2 people
Bright and colorful, Nest stands tall at 25 feet above the ground and is a little bigger than Crib. This tree house is perfect for families looking to spend some quality time together under the stars. Children always have the time of their lives in Nest. The floors are made of recycled wooden railways sleepers (called ties). There is a fan to keep you cool and it comes with a balcony and private bathroom on the ground floor (with a shower facility). Complimentary mineral water and tea/coffee is available. You can also avail free Wi-Fi services.
Saraii Village is your home away from home and in keeping with that spirit, guests have access to all areas of the property (except private rooms of other guests, of course!). There is a restaurant and hangout common area for all guests of Saraii Village as well.
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.
