"A perfect Sri Lankan experience
We spent a week at the Teak House with our two children (aged 9 & 11). Prior to our arrival we had been seduced by the website and all the promise of great food, beautiful beaches and an authentic Sri Lankan experience. Well, it matched all our expectations. The property is perfect for a family and extremely comfortable with an eye for interior detail. The bedrooms were charming and the walk in shower a nice touch. The kitchen annexe works extremely well as does Roshan who continually delivered excellent dishes to our taste and even managed to entice my son into devouring a grilled lobster bought from the local fisherman. The beach was a mere stroll away and completely empty bar the fishermen. The adjacent beach was also stunning and had the added bonus of a snake gorging on an unfortunate frog. The boogie boarding was great fun but we had brought life jackets just to be on the safe side. Great memories (and photos!). A two hour trip to Yala provided a fantastic 'pocket' safari for all. Elephants, leopards and crocs all appeared for our benefit. Nicola had a driver on hand who was extremely competent and helpful (best to agree the plan in advance though). So, in summary; excellent service, fab,fab food, great place and a gorgeous unspoilt setting. Oh, and great value too."2nd Dec 2011
The Fishermen are back!
Whilst we are unable to visit, we are thrilled to 'see' that the itinerant fishermen are back on our beach.
The Southern Expressway is now open to within 15 minutes of The Teak House
After a wait of 17 years, we are delighted to let you know that the final section of the Southern Expressway was vested a week ago! It will now take between 2 and 2 and a half hours to travel the 234km from Colombo Airport to The Teak House. It is expressway all the way but the last 15 minutes.
Extending our low season pricing
In light of the terrible impact on tourism since the horrific attacks of Easter Sunday, we have extended our low season pricing across the summer months. There will never be a more affordable time to visit this enchanted isle.
