Located right next to the Polonnaruwa ancient ruins. They don't have television facilities. Food is okay. But the price is too much. They rent bicycles to the visitors as well. Every unit is equipped with A/C & hot water.

The room as the name suggests was a clay hut, as some reviewers have observed there is a slightly damp smell but it's more like fresh...

We came with a group of 14 people. The rooms were clean and big. I liked the style of decoration. Ajith and his family made our stay lovely and comfortable. The site of Polonnaruwa is nearby and easy to discover by bike. The owner, Esther, knows a good guide to join you.

Clay hut village is way out of the town on a lovely quiet site around a lotus one, where we spotted lots of birds and even a mongoose. The rooms are simple, clean and well-kept, with a/c. The food is exceptional. We ate three times, twice we were the only people eating, so everything was made fresh for us, we...
