They have a few cruiser type bikes around that you can use, there are a lot of monkeys, lizards, elephants, firefiles! And... More

The place is also an excellent opportunity to meet other travelers and exchange experience. The food is very good, they cook tipical srilankan dishes. The... More

We had a good stay at Lakmini Lodge with a huge room and bathroom - and ate there one night which was a nice way to meet fellow guests - and the... More
