We provide tea, coffee and home-made fruit juices, but not alcoholic drinks. You are welcome to bring a bottle of wine to drink with your dinner.

We request that all guests observe our policy of not smoking indoors. We would be delighted if you could manage not to smoke at all - fires are started very easily.

We regret that we cannot cater for children under 12. Ravana’s Secret has many steep rocky areas which are well worthy of a visit, so we advise everybody to exercise caution!

Disclaimer: We do our utmost to keep jungle treks on our land as accessible as possible, but nature and weather can sometimes undo some of our good work. All our visitors undertake walks/treks and swimming in waterfall pools at their own risk.

If you are not familiar with the tropics, and particularly if you have never been to Sri Lanka, you may be interested in reading our ‘helpful hints for travellers’, which we would be happy to e-mail to you if you give us your address.
