About The Teak House

The Teak House is a uniquely designed villa made entirely from teak wood, one of Sri Lanka’s sustainable woods. It occupies a perfect spot in the midst of lush tropical coconut plantations on the South coast of Sri Lanka. It overlooks the Seenimodera beach and the Indian Ocean, providing for spectacular views of the rugged coastline, as well as a cool ocean breeze.

There are 2 bedrooms at The Teak House, making it perfect as a family retreat, or a quiet couple getaway. It is also a base from which guests can go on plenty of wildlife excursions, and there is the opportunity to spot elephants, leopards, crocodiles, deer and monkeys.

The villa garden is filled with an assortment of tropical flora, attracting plenty of birds flitting around dressed in their luxuriant colours. Guests can try spotting woodpeckers, peacocks, birds of paradise and kingfishers amongst many others. If you are lucky, you might even catch a glimpse of the magnificent sea eagle. At night, the cacophony of bird sounds dies down and fireflies come out to dance in the ink black night sky.

we chose The teak House to relax after a fortnight of touring Sri Lanka, and are heartily glad we did so. The house is a pretty wooden construction in delightful grounds with a new and delightful pool. The open living area and bedrooms are attractive and comfortable; whether sitting watching wildlife and bird life by the pool or, later in the evening, counting the numerous fireflies which flock around, the place is enchanting. What makes the place really special is the attention and kindness of the people. Roshan and his brother Ruane keep everything is tip top trim and serve the most delicious meals entirely unintrusively. Ruane will take you out in his tuk tuk to places you'd never find without local knowledge, and if you wish to go further afield, the property's favoured driver, Sujith, is simply the most wonderful guide to the local attractions and wildlife. In fact, anyone contemplating a tour of Sri Lanka should DM me for Sujith's telephone number, because he is an absolute gem. The legendary Tissa the dog will accompany you on the short stroll to the beach where you can watch the fishermen bring in their catch - it's a truly magical place. The shower's good and powerful, as well. Heartily recommended, we'll be back.

what a wonderful house! We spent a week in this very peaceful property up on the hill, 2 mins walk to one of the most picturesque beaches in the area. The villa has 2 double rooms with lovely 4 poster beds, interconnected by an open living/dining area. The villa is managed by the superb Roshan who is an outstanding cook, as well as his brother Ruane who has a Tuk Tuk to take you wherever you fancy. Not forgetting Tissa and Seeni who are a lovely addition to the property. Beach is fab for boogie boarding and long walks, and lots of rock pools which the kids enjoyed! the lovely new pool is also a very welcome addition, adding to the appeal of the house. You sleep at night with the roar of the ocean below and the noise of the jungle. Well located, close to the Aman and Tangalle. would 100% recommend a stay here.

My wife and I stayed two weeks at The Teak House in October 2013. We were advised that it was second monsoon season and that we might encounter a great deal of rain, but the weather was nearly perfect during our visit. Brief afternoon showers fell on some days and we did have about 24 hours of continuous rain soon after we arrived, but otherwise it was sunny and warm.

We recently spent 10 nights at Teak House. We were looking for a break from a very hectic and stressful lifestyle that took us back to grass roots with just the right amount of luxury. And that is exactly what we go.

My Wife and I stayed in the Teak House for 5 nights in December 2012 and we had the best time ever!!! The House is even prettier than the pictures we saw online. Clean, Spacious and very quiet. It is a 2 mins walk to a beautiful and quiet Beach. Roshan and his brother Ruanne made the experience even better. Roshan cooked amazing dishes to us all week and even made a huge Birthday cake for me... Ruanne took us in his Tuk Tuk to some beautiful places around town, places we would have never found or heard about on our own. We will definitely come back next Year and will recommend this house to our friends. Thank you Teak House Team!!!
