The property consists of one stand-alone villa (comfortably sleeps 9) and one bungalow (sleeps 3) that can be booked together or separately. The Villa: High ceilings and french doors in all rooms ensure a constant cooling air flow throughout the villa while maximizing access to the outdoors. Contemporary design using local materials and craftspeople create a peaceful, relaxed environment. The villa consists of three bedrooms (all ensuite with bathtubs and gorgeous outdoor rain showers), an open plan seating area/kitchenette and a poolside outdoor dining area ...Nestled on the shores of Yoda Lake, Wild Lotus Villa is a two acre oasis of laid back tranquility and a paradise for nature lovers.

All guests will have access to our entire two acre garden that features a large pool that is surrounded by large shade giving trees. The pool has multiple seating/playing areas at various water depths to provide for maximum relaxation and fun for all ages. We also have a small pond that is full of fish, turtles and frogs and is a magnet for small birds. Tropical fruits grown on the property include: coconuts, jackfruit, bananas, oranges, guava, custard apple, lemons, mangoes, rose apple and pomegranate. Activities: we have two mountain bikes (one with a baby seat) on which you can use to explore the village/rice paddy area, we also have one small kayak for lake/pond use and a 10 foot diameter trampoline for a sunset bounce. During your stay you will be well looked after by our staff by who live in the nearby village. They will be there to do all the cleaning and washing-up daily and an on site cook is happy to prepare meals to your taste. We also have laundry facilities available. You are also welcome to buy groceries and cook your own basic meals in the mini kitchen (stove top, microwave oven and small fridge). At least one member of staff will be on site 24/7 to look after the property after sunset. 1) At Wild Lotus Villa we’re committed to conservation. The natural beauty of the Sri Lankan wilderness makes us especially conscious of our commitment to sustainability. In accordance with our beliefs, Wild Lotus Villa provides the following: -Locally sourced fruits and vegetables (organic when possible) -Solar powered water heaters -Complimentary reverse osmosis purified water served in glass bottles -Naturally cooling clay tile roof to minimize the need for air conditioning -Ceiling fans in all spaces -Energy efficient “inverter” air cons in bedrooms for those that require it 2) The villa is located in a remote area with an array of wildlife. This includes an array of wild insects, including mosquitoes, butterflies, beetles etc. Remember to bring mosquito repellent. All the doors and windows in the house are screened, and making mosquito nets unnecessary if you are vigilant about keeping the screen doors closed. 3) Wild Lotus Villa is a bird watcher's paradise. Here are just a few of the birds that we’ve seen on the property and in the shallows of the lake on the property’s edge: paradise flycatcher, indian pond heron, black headed ibis, little egret, grey heron, open billed stork, painted stork, lesser whistling duck, brahminy kite, peacock, water hen, black winged stilt, great thicknee, yellow wattled lapwing, red wattled lapwing, green imperial pigeon, black necked oriel, rose ringed parakeet, asian koel, green bee eater, white throated kingfisher, stork billed kingfisher, pied kingfisher, indian roller, oriental maggie-robin, brown capped babbler, Loten’s sunbird, black hooded oriel, tricolored munia, baya weaver, indian pitta. We are happy to lend our binoculars and bird book to guests.More

Perfect in every way. Easily the best accommodation and experience I’ve had in years. If you want to see Yala National Park then this place is for you. They take care of all safaris too.
