The Mud House, Puttalam
Spread across a large expanse of wetlands on the outskirts of Puttalam, lies The Mudhouse – a paradise for nature lovers and adventure travelers, a true experiential eco-hotel. Situated next to several lakes, and boasting an array of wildlife and natural beauty, The Mudhouse provides a range of accommodation in private huts. Each ‘mud hut’ actually consists of a cluster of wattle and daub huts with thatched roofs, living/dining and mediation areas, and outdoor showers. At The Mudhouse, all areas of the property are open for guests to explore – from helping to cook delicious curries in the kitchens, to wandering around the organic gardens and paddy fields. At night, paths around the property are lit up by oil lamps, with open fires blaze outside of the huts, creating an intimate setting. A stay at The Mudhouse offers guests a unique opportunity to experience a relaxed and tranquil holiday at a pace of life that is hard to find elsewhere.
