Me and my friend had 5 weeks stay between the Ocean and Lagoon, 10 minutes by tuktuk from Batticaloa in a nice 2-storey house with our lounge chairs and hammock 5 meters from Lagoon, under palm-trees with fresh coconuts up there and our Rednam climing for nuts, Ranjan driving tuktuk, Bennet visiting us for swimming guard and having fresh-cooked Sri-Lankan food (his wife is a really skilled cook!) and delicious mineral water in his vehicle. And of course our Angel our dear Sugat who fulfilled any of our fantasies. In a word - it was as if we visited the family of our beloved cousin or uncle - well educated and hospitable - for X-mas :)) This place is good for relax, quiet rest, with beautiful temple nearby, very clean water, no noisy hotels around - just countryside with neighbors who are ready to help you any moment. Besides Teacher comes every other day - or whenever you are ready - to teach Yoga. I am fat and not young - but with him I felt one the most skilled "Yogist" I ever met :). His name is rather complicated - something like Chelliah Thuraiappah. Remember this name! :) And finally - unforgettable oil treatment in ayurvedic hospital.
Sinserely yours - Natalia & Ludmila

My spouse lara and me were staying at Bennet's place for two weeks and it was absolutely great. Bennet is living close by and was visiting us more or less every day in order get everything we need. He has organised the food, planned our trips and even joined us to Pigeon Island. The caretaker was responsible for the garden and the security - even though I wonder why, as the people there are absolutely friendly.
We had Yoga and Ayurveda sessions and enjoyed the swimming at the lake. Lara’s favourite was the quite lake, whereas I enjoyed the waves at the beach. It is an absolute bonus, that we had our privacy in the garden and direct access to the lake. So there was no one we had to share with. Additionally, this was not a typical touristic place. It is very authentic, so I was able to see the people, land and the culture. The very spicy food was also delicious.
However, you have to note that swimming is more or less required, because it is every day very hot. A day without jumping into the water would have been too hot for me and Lara.
