Jungle, Beach, Surf!

We are a mere 10 minute tuk-tuk ride away from Midigama, a surfer’s hub trailblazing the South-West coast. Here the beach is lined with trendy surf shops and cafes and hosts some of the best surf in Sri Lanka.

A 30 minute tuk-tuk to the West, past an array of beautiful private beach clubs sits Galle Fort, a Portuguese-Dutch colonial town boasting boutique shops and high-end cuisine.

A 20 minute tuk-tuk to the East you reach Mirissa, a beautiful cove offering everything from reggae beach bars to whale-watching (where Blue whale sightings are common).

A 20 minute tuk-tuk ride inland and you reach Koggala Lake and rumours of crocodiles and a swanky jungle cocktail bar.

Samadara could not be better placed for the burgeoning South-West scene and best of all unlike many establishments that sit right on the sea there isn't a busy road or car horn in earshot.


We are a two hour forty-five minute car journey from Colombo Airport. Transfers can be arranged and our House Manager Madura will be more than happy to organize any travel for you further afield before or after your retreat.
