It’s impossible not to fall in love with this exquisitely private ‘castle in the sky’. Perched on a jungly hillside amidst a 40-acre rubber, cinnamon and tea plantation this is a tranquil inland setting.
The Ark boasts jaw-dropping 180 degree views across lush paddy-carpeted valleys and tree-cloaked ridges of undulating hills rising verdantly from west to east.
This wonderful property is a 3-bedroom Eco-retreat perched high on a hill in Mathugama in Sri Lanka’s south west coast.
Mathugama is 60 kms south of the capital city Colombo and is within the district of Kalutara. The south western coastal towns of Kalutara, Beruwala and Bentota can be easily accessed from here.
The Ark is ideal for the adventurous, keen wildlife enthusiasts, and those looking for a relaxing and peaceful holiday. Up to 6 guests can be accommodated comfortably. The Ark is not recommended for those with mobility difficulties and young children below the age of 10 years due to the heights. The Ark is rented on an all inclusive basis.
At dawn, the mist creeping slowly along the valley below adds another dimension to the scene and makes the house feel as if it is magically floating in the sky.
