Home stay is made for those who yearn for a different experience; one that takes visitors to the very roots of the local people, their lifestyles and cultures and the rare opportunity not just to see it all but to live it too. Staying with a local family will give you the chance of being part of the family, engaging in traditional activities, sharing their way of life, appreciating their family values and enjoying a true hospitable stay. Be pampered with true Sri Lankan generosity, let ‘Amma’ or Mother make the most delicious Sri Lankan meals and local desserts and you can help her in the preparation while learning about Sri Lankan cuisine or help ‘Thatha’ or Father with the home garden. Just ramble around the area and turn into a true ‘local’; take a river bath, play a game of cricket with the village kids, visit the temple and indulge in some meditation or visit the local Ayurveda Doctor and learn about this over 5000 year old traditional healing system based on herbs and diets. There is so much to do and see in a home stay, you might want to stay on and on. If you care to bond and connect with the spirit of Sri Lanka then ‘Home Stay” is the best way to make it happen.
