Your Host and The Team


“We offer an authentic rural Sri Lankan experience in the heart of a working coconut estate that has been in my family for generations. It has always been a place for me to go to unwind. I want to share with my guests the unique opportunity of waking up in the morning, breathing in the air filled with aromas of spices, and enjoying breakfast surrounded by exotic plants, coconut trees and colourful birds flitting from branch to branch. It is really more of a sanctuary than a hotel.”

We Care

 

Ambarella Lodge supports the St Francis Boys Home Minuwangoda, which offers a safe haven for both orphans and boys whose parents are unable to look after them. It also provides these children with an education. The local church and a committee of volunteers are in charge of the organization, and Ambarella Lodge participates by donating books, uniforms, etc.

“Immerse in a small Sri Lankan village and interact with the local people just outside of Negombo in a charming seven-room lodge, which was built on a coconut grove.”
Kim, the discoverer.
