I booked a 4 day yoga and meditation retreat at Saraii Village and had a wonderful time. I flew in to Colombo and had transportation arranged from there. I didn't realize the trek would take about 5-6 hours but I just enjoyed the scenery along the way. The hotel itself was lovely. I stayed in a mud shack and enjoyed...

I heard about the place from various sources and wanted to go and see for my self because of this buzz. I am not sure because of that my expectations were high and i saw lot of areas which does not go according to the concept and how things can be improved. Overall i like the silence. But it was...

We stayed at Saraii Village for 1 night and had booked the loft tree house. For 180€ per night one can expect a certain standard which the tree house does not meet. Although it is nicely furnished it is simple and a bit run down and the houses are so close together that one has no privacy. For breakfast we...

The tree house we had was nice. And we generally enjoyed our stay. The restaurant serves good food. The down side was that the surrounding of the houses needs more attention. It looks all like not finally finished. The prices for tours are quite high. Our taxi to Galle cost 20% extra. The additional money was for the hotel. When...

Our stay was very short at Saraii Village (one night), but it's philosophy of organic food and sustainable living is exactly what my family looks for in a place to stay. The tree-house suite was absolutely stunning and will be the topic of conversation for many years to come! A bit of an odd arrangement of tree limbs in the...

We stayed in the Eco Mud Chalet, which we could not fault. This out of the ordinary accommodation is an ideal option for the eco-minded traveller, or those wanting something a little different. It is very well presented and comfortable. The food was delicious and the staff were very attentive, with takeaway breakfast options available for the early morning safaris....

We were on our Honeymoon and it's a fun idea but you need to understand what you're getting when you come to this place: a very expensive open-air platform bed riddled with squirrels that will chew through your bags and luggage. Management will not warn you about the squirrels and does not care about damage. While clearly the tree is...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. At Saraii you can experience the authentic Sri Lankan lifestyle in its unadulterated form. Customize your Saraii stay by either choosing from any of our guided tours designed to deliver the most authentic experience you can have with the local communities, or opting for a wild time at any of the responsible safari rides on offer at some of the country's best parks - Yala, Lunugamwehera, Bundala & Uda Walawe... Spot the beauty of the location along with the elusive leopard, sloth bears, majestic elephants, samber deer, peacocks, crocodiles and many more... ... more   less
