The rupee is depreciating very quickly. Because of this depreciation, the good's prices are increasing rapidly. We are not able to fix our future rates in rupee due to this constant increase. We have to fix the rates in American dollars (USD or $). At the beginning and in the middle of the months, we calculate the rates in rupee using the exchange rate of our bank. The exchange rate is in the table "Currency Rates" of https://www.sampath.lk/en/exchange-rates. You will be able to pay in Sri Lankan Rupee (LKR) or in any strong currencies (USD, EUR, CHF).

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 1$ per person and per night.
The kitchen is available from 6pm to 8pm during high season (December to April, July and August) and all day long during low season (May and June, September to November). Because the gaz bottle's price is high, we will charge 1$ per night if you cook. Boiling water for a tea or coffee is free and available all day all along the year.
4G Wifi router (Dialog) is available near our gate. Internet is not unlimited in Sri Lanka. We have to buy package of GB. The speed could be slow if many guests are connected. 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. The Dialog and Mobitel signals are strong at Patini.

We are planning to paint Patini for maintenance during this low season. If we are not able to do it (paint unavailable or too expensive), we will give a 10% discount.
We accept payment only in cash. You can pay in Sri Lankan rupees, Swiss francs, Euros, Pounds or US dollars. We will check the exchange rate at Sampath Bank the day of your payment. 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. If you like to know which bank to choose to exchange your currency, here are the websites where you can find the exchange rate of the day: Sampath Bank, Commercial Bank, People's Bank, BOC (Bank of Ceylon). The rate is shown in "Currency Buying Rate". In Tangalle, the rate may be 1rs lower than the one shows on internet because they have to transport the currency from Tangalle to Colombo.
