Stay

Sri Lankan sleep, village styleAnamaduwa, Sri Lanka

You may be sleeping in a hut made from mud, but the Mudhouse isn’t your typical back-to-basics getaway. Instead this retreat has clusters of beautifully designed huts spread throughout 25 hectares of forest.

The traditional open-sided village huts and treehouses open to the wild surroundings, and all have outdoor showers and indoor bathrooms. Days here are best spent swimming in the lake, cycling, practicing yoga sequences and watching for giant squirrels, wild boar and butterflies. Dinners are a romantic, candlelit affair, as most of the electricity is solar power.

get there

The Mudhouse is a two-hour drive from Colombo’s international airport, close to the town of Anamaduwa. One of the staff will meet you in Anamaduwa for pickup due to the Mudhouse’s remote location.

From US$160 per person per night, which includes all food, drink and excursions.
