Property Description

The Doctors House is situated on the south coast of Sri Lanka, in the beautiful Madiha. We are a bar/restaurant/hostel with delicious wood-fired pizza's, great espresso coffee and very friendly staff!

The pristine coastline of Madiha is perfect for swimming and the area boasts some of the best surf on the whole coast. We have 2 dorm rooms, a 4 bed and and a 6 bed, with shared outdoor bathroom and shower facilities. The hostel accomodation is truly spectacular and there has been a huge focus on the use of natural materials and retaining the traditional style of the 200 year old building, whist adding a touch of contemporary finishes and creature comforts.

The feature piece is certainly The Doctor's House, which is a 200 year old colonial building which has served as an Aryuvedic hospital since it was built. It has been handed down through 5 generations of Aryuvedic doctors, and has been lucky enough to fall into the hands of two young Australians.

This Dutch colonial style building is truly one of a kind. One look at it, leaves you speechless, in saying that, its spooky, yet mysterious look makes you wonder how many stories it would have to tell. This building was one of very few which survived the 2004 tsunami.

    Such a Nice hostel! Met lots of Nice people and had a great time. Only downside was the expensive food (800-1000 rupees for breakfast) - long Walk to cheap restaurant.

    Great bar! Beautiful outdoor showers! Fab, but pricey food. Only cons were that the lockers are too small to fit any sort of SLR camera/large laptops & expensive tuk tuk drivers who hang out outside the hostel - if you want a cheaper tuk tuk, head to the main road.

    They served incredible food and had a great relaxed atmosphere. We even saw a huge green turtle poke his head up out of the waves at the beach across the road.
