From: $190 per night

Step back in time into the verdant forests of Sri Lanka; lose yourself amid the thatched roofs and wooden beams that compose the structures of The Mudhouse. This rustic, stylish resort eschews modern distractions like electricity in favor of a closer connection to the earth. The cuisine is sourced from the onsite farm, and every hut includes a bicycle for low-tech exploration of the property. At nighttime, the property is lit by the soft glow of lanterns and candles, truly making you wonder if you’ve wandered into another century.

Regenerative Impact

Built with only environmentally-sound materials using traditional techniques, the huts of The Mudhouse change with the seasons—slowly replaced and updated as the building materials return to nature. You can immerse yourself in the simplicity of the seasons by volunteering at the property’s farm and savoring locally-sourced Sri Lankan meals from the kitchen. The Mudhouse also engages with its local community, choosing to use traditional, labor-intensive practices to employ local people.


Your stay at The Mudhouse is a chance to unplug from the modern world and rediscover your love of the wild through outdoor exploration and cultural experiences.
