Due to Covid situation, we change our rates system and give discount. From now to end of March 2022, we will apply the "High season rates" which are 20-25% cheaper than the rates we applied in 2019/20. Then, we will apply the "Low season rates". 

High season rates

These rates are applicable from 18th December 2021 (included) until end of March 2022.

Due to the continuous prices' increasings in Sri Lanka, we had to increase our rates previously announced to be able to cover the costs of living, the bills, our worker salary, the maintenance/repairs and any future increase. The High season rates remain 20%-25% cheaper than the normal rates at the same period. And if we count in USD, it is even 30% cheaper because the Sri lankan rupee is loosing value.

The sea view bungalows (C4 and C5) will cost 7'000rs (less than 31 Euros or 35$ on 19th November 2021) per night. The back bungalows (C1, C2 and C3,they still have some seaview) will cost 5'500rs (less than 24 Euros or 27$ on 19th November 2021) per night. These rates include all taxes, unlimited drinkable water and 1GB/night wifi. They don’t include hot water for shower (optional, 250rs per person and per night) and the kitchen (100rs per night for the gaz if you are cooking). If the stay is a single night, 500rs extra are charged. The cleaning and loyalty card discounts (5% discount if the bungalow is cleaned after 5 nights; 15th and 30th nights free) is applicable.

As the situation remains uncertain, we may decrease our rates during winter. We will inform about the discount here and on Facebook.

Extra requirements

LKR 500.- per night per child with extra mattress (foam mattress on the floor with mosquito net), the third child is free (no extra mattress available). It is comfortable for children but less for adults.

Hot water (for shower only) is optional, we can switch it on on request for the whole stay. Hot water is not really necessary because the cold water temperature is about 30 degrees. You can try a first shower without hot water. If you need hot water, we can switch it on for LKR 250.- per people and per night.

The kitchen is available the whole day in November. From December to March, our worker will need it from 9-10am to 3pm. Because cooking a rice and curry takes so much place, she will need the full kitchen during this time. You will be able to watch her cooking. Because the gaz bottle's price is increasing, we will charge 100rs per night if you cook. Boiling water for a tea or coffee is still free and available all day.

4G Wifi router (Dialog) is available near our gate. It is free of charge if the usage is less than 1GB per night per bungalow. Otherwise, we will charge according to Dialog costs (tax is 15%). (The "unlimited" wifi is included into the normal rates.) This router will be shared with other guests. Be aware that unlimited packages are not usual in Sri lanka. We encourage you to buy a Sri lankan SIM card (Dialog or Mobitel) for call, sms and internet (more than 90% coverage). This card is sold in the Dialog or Mobitel outlets and also in the phones shops. Your passport is required. Then, your phone can be used as a router/wifi provider (hotspot) for your laptop.

Single night supplement

LKR 500.- extra for one night stay in one bungalow for the cleaning.

Discounts

We give a cleaning discount of 5% on the bungalow's rate if the bungalow is cleaned after 5 nights.

We give a loyalty card. The 15th nights is free at the average rate of the 15 nights. The card can be filled over many years... You can stay more than 15 nights at once or two or three nights every two-three years... If you stay one month (30 nights), we give two nights free...

If you take foreign currencies cash with you, some shops in town exchange them at a rate 10% higher than the banks.

Payment

We accept payment only in cash. We prefer to be paid in Sri Lankan ruppies (LKR). We are not sure if we are allowed to accept foreign currencies any more. We have to ask our bank first. If we are allowed to accept foreign currencies, you can pay in Swiss francs, Euros, Pounds or US Dollars. We will check the exchange rate at NDB Bank the day of your payment and cut 2rs from it to cover the variation of the rate. Sri Lanka suffers a lot of a lack of foreign currencies. It would be better for Sri Lanka if you change your foreign currencies in the bank and not in the shops but shops offer 10% higher rates!
