About us

Our Story

We were once professionals, just like many of you. I was busy with my work in the medical profession as a doctor. Attending to home matters of a growing family, while my husband Dasarath was a Manager of several tea estates in Nuwara Eliya distric Unexpected circumstances brought us to Colombo, giving up a peaceful life on the estates, which we enjoyed and still miss. 

The years passed and travels across the continents, experiences, events, and people brought us memories that could fill chapters. The busy lives have settled down, and the children have gone away to pursue lives of their own.

Having more time on our hands, Dasarath went on to pursue his passion for agriculture by starting cultivating cinnamon in Sellakataragama.

He takes pride in introducing Ceylon Cinnamon to the area, an eco-friendly export crop.

Our cinnamon plantation saw more of us and we ended up building a house to stay during our frequent visits as well as to provide a holiday home to our family. We channeled our best efforts to create something unique. Today that idea has become a much-loved destination for discerning guests who seek total tranquility, peace of mind, privacy and caring hospitality. The search stops here.

We welcome you as our guests, and enjoy hosting you. We invite you to come and experience our warm and caring attention for an unforgettable holiday.
