Property Description

Gem River Edge - Eco home situated in Kataragama - Yala National Park, which is a small town located 238 km South East of Colombo. It's an Eco-friendly home/place for a responsible tourism. We are on the edge of the Gem River (Menik ganga) and on the border of the Yala National Park and very close to the Kataragama complex temple, one of the most visited, sacred multi-religious pilgrimage and here is the largest important annual festival in the island. We are surrounded by beautiful lakes and a large natural biodiversity.

We want to offer to our guests a relaxing experience in harmony with nature.
We organize safaris in Yala National Park to observe the wild life and vegetation; visits to the ancient temple in the jungle Situlpowwa. We have at one's disposal bicycles for tours long the lakes, paddy fields and through small villages on the border of the jungle. We guide the guests to a visit in the multi-religious site and participate in the daily Pooja.
The guest can delight on the Gem River with pleasant clean water and refresh body and mind.

It's an ecological place with 3 comfortable rooms (one is a large family suite) with terrace and sitting area all built in a rustic style using renewable and natural material. Guests can observe in our gardens the daily habits of the animals, lots of birds and natural vegetation. The kitchen and lounge area are made from mud and palm leaves. We serve Sri Lankan cuisine prepared daily (seasonal vegetables), rice and curry, fresh salads, fruit juice, delicious curd and local sweets.
We share a comfortable and traditional atmosphere where everybody are welcome to join for an unforgettable stay and experience.

Latest Review

" Really great place to stay. They organised a safari for us which was amazing. Saw elephants, bears and leopards! Only thing to beware of is that the location is hard to find if you don't come from kataragama. Dinner is also available on request at $10 "
