Step back in time amid the simple rhythms of life at The Mudhouse

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. 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. 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.

Every one of The Mudhouse’s structures are designed with relaxation and comfort in mind, from the indoor bathrooms to the al fresco lounge areas. The Mudhouse 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. Located near the Anawilundawa Wetland Sanctuary, birders will be delighted by the native species found near the hotel, while watching dolphins off the Kalpitiya Peninsula will help you make memories to last a lifetime.
