Lodge type bungalow with large dorm type hall which accommodates 6 single beds, it has access to two common toilets and a lockable room to keep your valuables that also functions as a changing room.
Adjoining this is a large air conditioned en suite private bed room with 4 beds.
The rate is for a single person per night with breakfast.
The property overlooks the Kirinda lagoon.
How we feel the bungalow should be used
We feel the bungalow is ideal for large groups or family stay. Some can sleep in the hall and some can occupy the private room. If a single person or a couple does book the property we will not be taking any more guests so as to ensure your privacy. Have a look at the floor plan (last image) so that you know what we are talking about.
What you get
•Fresh white linen with mosquito nets and ceiling fans in the hall.
•Air conditioning in the private room
•Basic toiletries and fresh towels
•Filtered water from dispenser
•Daily cleaning and making the beds
•Attendant to help you with all your needs
Generally the local guests bring the provisions for all the meals and our cook Mr.Liyanage can pretty much put together any thing one wants. But as a foreigner we understand you may not be in a mood to go grocery shopping so for a small fee we can provide you with Lunch and Dinner as well.
You can discuss the menu with the cook before hand.
The cook does a smashing Sri Lankan rice and curry ,he can also make western dishes on order ,the menu is flexible though. if you tell what you like to eat he will shop for you from the local market which has the freshest of produce or if you are in to sea food, the Kirinda harbor is 5 minutes away with a array of fresh sea food available daily,
he does a mean BBQ too.
Or there are a couple of fancy hotels nearby if you want to go out for a meal.
•15 minutes to the famous Yala National Park.
•5 minutes to Kirinda beach, and the ancient rock temple.
•20 minutes to Bundala,(Ramsar site)

Panthera Lodge is located near a national park in southern Sri Lanka in the semi arid dry zone,so water conservation is encouraged. we prefer to be environmentally friendly and do not encourage loud music etc. Please do not feed stray/wild animals. If you are renting a safari jeep for a game drive next morning, have this arranged through cook/caretaker. carry snacks and plenty of water in to the park.The caretaker will arrange this.
