What to think about when visiting us

As we are very unique in relation to other hotels in the Kandy region  there are certain things to consider. 
a)       Plenty of soft T-shirts and shorts - please understand that the Sri Lankan culture is very  different to the West which require ladies to wear their shorts down to the knees and cover their bikinis with a T-shirt when bathing/swimming in public areas, but swimming in a bikini is fine in less popular areas (please speak to your guide on arrival)
b)      Rubber slippers
c)       Walking shoes for trekking
d)      Swim-wear to swim in rivers and also waterfalls!
e)      Light rain-coat in case of rain.
f)    Insect Repellent in case you are fearful of small bugs when walking around. (All lodges are sealed and sprayed to avoid insects indoors)
