Shower under a Frangipani tree, or be pampered in the cinnamon-walled Ayurvedic spa where a garden of medicinal herbs is being laid out under the supervision of some of the area's foremost Ayurvedic experts. Kadju House is located in a cashew grove just outside the fishing village of Tangalle and close to the nature reserves and temples. Don't just sit on the beach, there is plenty to do and see nearby; rock temples, living Buddhist monasteries, bird-watching, animal safaris and jungle tours. Parrots, eagles and monkeys can be spotted from the infinity pool terrace and peacocks often leave wet footprints on the floor of the pavilion.
The happy team of staff will shop and cook for guests and they are happy to take guests to the market and teach them how to cook some authentic Sri Lankan dishes. Meals are charged for ingredients and transport cost only. Fresh fish can be bought straight from the fishing boats on the beach.
