This was the highlight of our trip. We stayed in the "nest" tree house which has two floors and is large enough for a family, and it was so comfortable and peaceful. The hosts were very friendly and took care of us like family. Saraii is a small villa and I have never seen real tree houses as these. Natural tree houses and authentic Sri lankan food. They live up to their concept of being low in their carbon footprint. Hence, no ac, but they do make up for it by providing fans and being high up the breeze more than makes up for it. They arranged a safari for us at yala nature pak and we saw leopards and many elephants. They also arranged for us to visit kataragama, and religious site, and this was very special. In the evening we were given a special outdoor candle lit dinner, as a surprise and my wife was so thrilled. We saw many peacocks on the land and so many types of birds, we were told that we are located close to a bird sanctuary which explained it. The tree houses would be amazing for bird watching, next time I should bring my bionaculars. Amazing service, excellent food, comfortable and simple setting. This place was a treat.
