I like to meet friendly people and welcome them as my family members. I'm a Buddhist and believe in karma, therefore I always try to take the most positive actions for me, and those around me. Everybody is welcome in my family guesthouse and I always want my guests to feel comfortable and at home. I like to show people the Sri Lankan way of life and give my visitors a sense of our history and inform them of the attractions Sri Lanka has to offer.
I am not a good surfer but I love surfing, it is my one of favourite things to do. I also like playing cricket and Carrom (a local board game), reading surf and sport magazines, as well as watching movies. I like to eat Sri Lankan food (it’s my favourite!) especially rice and curry, string hoppers, pittu with sambol etc.
I enjoy cultivating a good relationship with every guest because it makes everyone’s stay so much more enjoyable. My experience so far is that people love staying at my place so much that they often become quite emotional when they have to leave, this is a wonderful compliment for me and I always find it hard to say goodbye to my guests. All I ask of my guests is that they respect my family home and treat it as they would treat their own houses, keeping it clean and being respectful of other guests and family members.
I have never travelled outside Sri Lanka. One day I hope to travel internationally but it is not easy to achieve this as a Sri Lankan. I hope my hard work will pay off and, like you, I will get to see some of the world. As my business grows I can feel my goal coming closer, every guest I have is assisting me in reaching my target, and as well as that I feel they are bringing the world to me. Each guest is unique and brings their own accent, customs, and views on life. This is something which brings me great joy and fuels my desire to travel.
Across the street from our place are four surf breaks, Lazy Left, Ram’s Right, Plantation, and Coconut. You can surf some of the best waves in Sri Lanka and come home to great cooking. My father has 24 years experience in a five star hotel, and my mother makes the best rice and curry in Sri Lanka!
All the best, I hope we will meet each other soon!
