  • The Woodlot is a wonderful designed hut, made of natural material. Made with lots of love. We only found it a bit difficult that you can't lock the hut and that people can even look inside through some gaps and windows. Anyway, it didn't matter too much. Also the other huts, especially the tree house, are very special and wonderful to stay at.
    Apart from that I have to say: it is too expensive in my opinion. It is not a real Village, for me there is no special atmosphere as I was expecting it. Also you have to take a Tuk Tuk to get there and away.
    Food is very expensive, $ 12.- for a not very special dinner, only main course, that's hilarious if you know the prices for food in Sri Lanka.
    We did not get to meet Charitha, there is only a manager and some workers. All of them were very kind and helpful.
    At the moment they are building more houses, so maybe one day it will be different. So maybe they will work on the atmosphere - f.ex.: we had dinner in front of the workers sleeping pace...
    But: lots of great ideas, all made with natural products, still a good place to go if you don't mind the money and if you are curious to expolre it yourself.
