This is a brand new property we have designed and built, completed at the beginning of January 2016. This spacious apartment offers all the comforts of home with the excitement of surf living. It is perfect for the young at heart! In fact, because of its location it's perfect for surfers and active families that would like to enjoy the ocean. It is ideal for four friends or family of four. Only natural materials have been used to give you a different experience. A lot of love has gone into designing and furnishing the property. To describe it is to say is eclectic, elegant and yet simple as can be found by the interesting features such as concrete beds, polished concrete floors and surfaces. The property has two large AC bedrooms with Queen Size bed in each room and built in wardrobes. The bathroom has hot water and power shower. The kitchen is well positioned and functional. The living area has comfortable seating, a dining table to seat four and a ceiling fan. We have installed the light dimmers in the lounge area and bedrooms to give you a little extra atmosphere at night and yes you have some beautiful candle holders to use at night to create that perfect feeling! Our curtains and cushion covering are all hand loomed 100 percent cotton produced and designed by Vyanni (the photos are not doing them any justice!). We have high quality linen fit for 5 star hotels. All our furniture except for the sofa base has been custom produced by skillful local carpenters. The house was built taking into account Eastern practices of space clearing and design. We take pride in providing as organic environment as we would prefer living in.
This is a walled private property that provides maximum privacy for our guests to enjoy the front and back garden. Soon you will find comfy bean bags for our front garden!
The apartment’s fully-equipped kitchen features the following: Alessi coffee maker, tea kettle and tea pot, toaster, stove and oven, refrigerator/freezer, and a good assortment of cookware, cutlery and crockery/glassware. And if you find you need something more just ask! Upstairs we have more kitchen items which we are very happy to lend you to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
We also provide a basic supply of coffee, tea, and sugar.
For the bath there is a hair dryer, soap, shower gel, shampoo and conditioner.
We are happy to provide kitchen dishwashing soap and a sponge and we clean the apartment every second day. We can wash and dry laundry for you at a small charge of Rs.500/=. There is an iron and ironing board in the apartment for your own use. We provide fresh linen every four days and towels every two days.
For your entertainment there is a DVD player and cable TV. Wi-Fi is free of charge.
Dasun and I are pleased to offer you an eco-friendly place to stay while you are at the coast. The entire property is solar-powered which includes the electricity and hot water. We are delighted to be able to give the unused electricity generated by our solar panels back to the Sri Lankan government and to help the community in this small way. You can help us be energy-efficient by switching off A/C, fans and lights when not in use! Thank you!
Interaction with guests
Dasun and I live on the property so we are readily available when you have questions. While we are very happy to have you as our guests we try to stay as “invisible” as possible to ensure your privacy and comfort. But we encourage you to feel free to come to us should you need help or information.
We are four friendly faces at Flying Lotus: Nadika, Nirosh, Dasun and me! There is always someone around to monitor the front gate and make your stay with us care-free and safe. Dasun or I will be here to greet you on arrival and show you around, and we are available 24/7 in the case of an emergency. If you need help with transportation, excursions or dining recommendations…just ask!
