The Green House is based in the large Weligama Bay that picks up most swell directions. The bay has numerous beach breaks so no danger from rocks, reef or crowds. This also means it is safe for swimming and younger guests. There is an offshore reef that can be reached by one of their boats for empty waves. Being a fishing family of surfers they really know the local conditions and can help you go to the best spots at the best time, by boat or road. Surrounded by a wealth of different breaks from fast, hollow reefs to more mellow rides, it is perfect for improving your technique, all within easy reach.
The surf house currently consists of 9 luxury AC ensuite rooms, each with a terrace area, depending on which room with stunning sea views or opening onto the private garden. They all have generous hand-made, sustainably built, 6ft wide four-poster beds and single beds can easily be added for sharers or to make a triple/family room.

You will need to fly into Colombo Airport (CMB). For here we can arrange your private pick up for the 4 hour journey south to the Lodge. This is £75 each way (per 4 guests). We can also help you navigate via public transport, there is a train line that runs from Colombo to Weligama. This is a much cheaper option, so let us know which you would prefer when booking!
