Additional Terms and Conditions
For Your Consideration
Welcome to Saraii Village, a journey into authentic Sri Lankan living.
We welcome you to open your mind to a new holiday experience, in order to enjoy what we offer for the adventurous traveler. As we strive to maintain authenticity in your experience, please be aware of a few house rules and features of your stay –
Saraii is created on the concept of authenticity and as such, your tree-house/ wattle & daub hut accommodation features the architectural styles of rural Sri Lankan homes using as little synthetic or superficial frills as possible.
The guest will be responsible for his/her own safety at all times during the stay at the property.
Because we pride ourselves on conserving nature and leaving it untouched, you may encounter wildlife within the premises, as part of the Saraii experience. These can range from larger endemic creatures to a myriad of insects that include mosquitoes, bugs and harmless reptiles such as frogs and the occasional snake. As such, we encourage you to carry your own repellent at all times.
In the event of rain, you may experience some rainwater leakages in your room, due to tree branches that have grown into your roof.
Saraii is 100% eco-conscious and as such, does not offer hot water, adjustable showers or air conditioning. We invite you to enjoy natural comforts that are authentic to the rural island lifestyle.
You may on occasion hear the sounds of surrounding peacocks and wildlife during your stay. Consider it mother nature’s serenade to you!
Tree-house suites are given to mild creaking, due to the gentle sway of the trees upon which they are built.
Please excuse the barking of the community dogs in the surrounding area – they are our own little security guards!
All cuisine at Saraii are Sri Lankan with a touch of western fusion.
Please do not leave food out in your room or open bags as they may attract thieving squirrels or monkeys.
Our natural salt water pool comes complete with a delightful family of resident ducks!
