Our neighbours love cooking. They can prepare you a tasty lunch and / or dinner on request (4 hours in advance). Meals will be ordered and served in the house by the host.

Lunch and dinner in the area:

Sakura Hotel

Very basic but tasty takeaway Rice and Curry restaurant at the A26 main road  to Digana. Pick up your simple but tasty lunch parcels by Tuk Tuk or if you feel lazy and ask Lushan to order it for you. Lunch parcels cost about 200 – 300 SLR each.

Orathota Resort

Charming but slightly outdated resort at a 4 KM distance from the cottage (take a Tuk Tuk from main road). The food is OK, the staff is friendly and the location with a view on Victoria lake is amazing.

Teldeniya Resthouse

This is an old resthouse on the bank of the Victoria lakeside (opposite the Teldeniya hospital). You can enjoy a average rice and curry or order something a la carte. Sitting outside will give you a great view on the lake and the surrounding mountains. You can take a Tuk Tuk from the main road, it will bring you there in approximately 20 minutes.

Victoria Golf and Country Resort

A beautiful location for playing golf or enjoying a good dinner. Very good but costly. See their website for detailed information.

There are numerous small restaurants in and around Digana and if you have any other wishes, please discuss this with Lushan.
