Saraii, meaning "the essence" in Hebrew, aims to provide an authentic Sri Lankan experience with its unique tree houses and mud chalets.
Within 15 minutes' by safari jeep from Bundala National Park, this pet-friendly property also has free Wi-Fi.
The on-site Saraii Slow Food Specialty serves Sri Lankan cuisine and sandwiches.

Decorated with colourful cushions, the non-smoking accommodation all come with a fan and free bottled water.
The private bathrooms are equipped with a shower.

Saraii Village is 10 km from Tissamaharama and 27 km from Mattala Airport. It is within a 30-minute drive from Yala National Park, Kirinda Beach and Kataragama.
Colombo International Airport is 290 km away.

Guests can arrange day trips at the tour desk, or rent a bicycle to explore the area. Free parking is also available.

Saraii Village believes that travel is not just about seeing the new, but about feeling and breathing in a rustic experience that touches your soul.
As one of the most eco-conscious hotels in Sri Lanka, we invite the conscientious traveler seeking something off the beaten path, and encourage our visitors to embrace the Saraii philosophy of respecting the serene environment that surrounds them.

The sensation of fine wine and good food in your private nest under the stars is all part of Saraii’s magic spell.
Hidden beneath a canopy of trees deep in the heart of Weerawila, Saraii Village is a private estate featuring a series of mud chalets designed to imitate the open air concept of rural homes in the locale.
However, the highlights of the property and a firm favorite with guests of all ages, are the magical tree houses, built especially for the wild at heart.

Location

Area Info: Randunu Kele Watte, Weerawila, Tissamaharama, Sri Lanka

Address: Randunu Kele Watte, Weerawila

Area Info

Beyond Bundala National Park the main highway turns away from the coast towards the pleasant town of TISSAMAHARAMA (usually abbreviated to Tissa). Tissa’s main attraction is as a base for trips to the nearby national parks of Yala and Bundala or the temple town of Kataragama, but it’s an agreeable place in its own right, with a handful of monuments testifying to the town’s important place in early Sri Lankan history when, under the name of Mahagama, it was one of the principal settlements of the southern province of Ruhunu. Mahagama is said to have been founded in the third century BC by a brother of the great Devanampiya Tissa of Anuradhapura, and later rose to prominence under Kavan Tissa, father of the legendary Dutugemunu. A cluster of dagobas and an expansive tank dating from this era lend parts of Tissa a certain distinction and a sense of history which makes a pleasant change from the run-of-the-mill towns which dot much of the southern coast.

Additional information

Tree House Suite
Step away from boring reality and step into the fantasy of living wild and worry-free, surrounded by the natural world.
The latest addition to our treetop experiences, our spacious tree house suites are Saraii’s most popular room choices. Designed to accommodate up to 8 guests, each tree house suite is perfectly suited for a romantic getaway or for a group of friends, and features two floors with an extra-large bed and inbuilt bathroom upstairs, plus a large spacious lounge downstairs.
Step out on the deck at night to enjoy your bespoke view of the glittering clear night sky above you or a bird’s eye view below and breathe in the memories that only Saraii can create.

Mud Chalet Suite
Put yourselves in the shoes of the locals and enjoy an authentic village living experience. Saraii’s unique Mud Chalet Suites are designed to be as close to the real indigenous homes in the rural locale. Each of the two suites has its own individual charm and character – one facing the rising sun and surrounded by gardens of organic fruit and vegetables. The other nestles cosily in the corner of our little forest; the original structure that inspired Saraii’s name.

Sri Lankan village homes are typically crafted on the foundation of sustainability and Saraii’s architecture borrows a page from that book.
Complete with mud walls that literally breathe and help maintain a cool interior during the heat of the day, and with the luxury of privacy and space with enormous beds just waiting for you to sink into them, our mud chalets are the perfect solution for the visitor wanting to stay on ground.

Superior Tree House
All it takes is a climb up the ladder to discover why our Superior Tree House is a firm favourite amongst guests of all ages.
Built on a sturdy old Palu tree, it sits majestically at 25 feet above ground like something out of a storybook.
Amongst Saraii’s oldest tree houses, it features 2 floors to shelter up to 4 people in the most magical of ambiences, providing a sense of both safety and an escape for your inner child.
Perfect for families with kids or small groups, it is beloved for its breath-taking view of the surroundings and the thrilling feeling of the tree swaying gently in strong winds.

Superior Mud Chalet
Sitting prettily under our tree houses suites are a pair of charming little Superior Mud Chalets that prove that good things come in small packages.
To be booked as an extended room combo with the tree house for larger groups, or as a separate cosy hideaway for couples, these colourful little units are full of character.
Even the simplest of corners have been treated to Saraii’s special touch.
Well-appointed with creative niches and fittings, each chalet is lovingly crafted and features artistic nooks that add detailed authenticity.
