Discover your inner Wild Thing in Elmo’s jungle retreat near Wilpattu National Park.

The space

This is the type of place where you’d imagine yourself growing up like some sort of Mowgli, a feral child among the animals of the wild. Well… ok, Elmo may not be that wild, but it surely is a huge step away from the urban jungle most of us live in. Situated in the middle of a 25 acre private jungle, with its own lake where you can swim and elephants come to drink, a stay in one of Elmo’s two simple rooms is a great way to log out.

Interaction with guests

Your host Elmo lives on the property to take care of his guests. Food and drinks can be provided on site, so you won’t have to travel for the basics. Throughout the years, Elmo has turned his place into a good spot for a quiet retreat, allowing for camping and even trekking on the property itself.

We arrived in Puttalam by bus and gave Elmo a quick call on the mobile. He was extremely helpful and his English outstanding. He told us he would send his Tuk Tuk driver to collect us and ferry us promptly to his wonderful house. This is certainly a remote location so don't expect mains electricity. If you want to watch the stars at night and have excellent conversation about world politics, travel and Sri Lankan culture then this is perfect. Elmo was the perfect host and was very generous in sharing his evening with us.
