What to Expect
You will be welcome by freshly made fruit juice or a herbal drink, wander around the Villa & Check in to your room and get yourself refreshed & prepared for the market visit. local market will be a unique experience . It is similar to European Eco shops.  Sri Lanka`s grandmas picked fresh vegetables from their back yard soon before the preparation. Without visiting local market, you won`t have a deep understanding how to pick right vegetables, spices and other stuff properly.

Cooking with Claypot is a unique experience. Clay pottery has been one of the oldest crafts in the country. A technically made and well-seasoned clay pot makes food tender and flavorful. The porous walls absorb water, which prevents food from going dry – therefore useful for long slow cooking. Researches have proved, food cooked in clay pots can be preserved for long as it has antibacterial acidic moisture.

Explore Secrets Behind the Sri Lankan Kitchen. There are thousands of different types of curries in Sri Lanka, for which a vast variety of cooking techniques and ingredients are used. Sri Lankans are experts at using different cooking methods to produce totally different tastes. Sometimes, even locals can be confused by the cooking style if it is not easy to recognize by the usual color, aroma and taste.

Your cozy Villa  is located in Capital of Sri Lanka, Walking distance to Sri Lankan Democratic Parliament, Immigration Office and beautiful Diyawanna lake. you will be free from hustle & bustle of the city & will be listening to the bird songs. This is the green belt of Colombo. 9km from City Center & at the exit of the expressway to the Colombo Airport. Here you will spend overnight with free breakfast.
