The space

The Time Lag Garden was built in 2014 and is a very quiet, calm and comforting place to relax and enjoy yourself. It is located in a very safe but rural area. You will find all kinds of different flowers, papaya,banana and coconut trees within the 2000square meters of the Time Lag Garden, which provides enough space for privacy if so wanted. There are two Cabanas and a main house ,each with a terrace of its own. The Cabanas are equipped with a king sized bed and a nice outdoor shower. You will also have enough room for a spare bed if wanted (+7€p.d), so that you will easily fit 3 people in each Cabana. Feel free to use the kitchen for breakfast, lunch or dinner witch is equipped with a coffee machine, a water filter, a blender, a toaster, a fridge and a gas stove.
The beach is within a 10 minute walk from the Garden or even a 5minute ride by bicycle (which will also be available for renting). The beach has a beautiful almost white shore and it is known to be an awesome surfing spot called „the Rock“. You will also find a lot of different things to do such as whale watching, elephant riding or feeding, shopping, National Parks and historic places like Temples are all located nearby. Or you can just stay in the Garden and watch the monkeys play above your head in the trees, the sunset from the water tower is a beautiful event and gives you an overview of your surroundings. If i´m not there a german and english speaking local (Tilak) will be more than happy to help you with everything you need and organize your stay if you want.

Staying at jörg's place was a mixed experience. On the one hand, the cabana was a nice, quiet place, hidden from the beaches' bustle. The garden is nice, and being in the cabana offers more private space than most hotels. At the same time, being away from everything is not only nice. Walking to the beach takes around 20 minutes. Tuktuks cannot find the place. You will have to carry your luggage for the last hundreds of meters. And it gets really dark. So you should b up for all that. Thilak, who is taking care of the place, speaks german and some english. He is not "professional" staff. Basic things were amiss: towels, wastebasket, the bikes we were able to use had flat tires, etc. At the same time, breakast costs considerably more than in serious 3- to 4-star hotels we stayed in (750 lkr, around eur 5.-). This is too much, and is at serious odds with the private (ie not professinal) vibe of the place. That being said: for the beach area, this is a quite affordable option. You can do better and find other private places for less, but for one or a few nights, this is an ok-ish option.

Wir haben als frischgebackene Familie mit Baby zwei Monate im Timelag Garden verbracht und uns wie zuhause gefühlt! Der Garten ist ein Paradies mit köstlichen Früchten wie Bananen und Papayas. Die Kokosnüsse lassen sich in der super ausgestatteten Küche zu leckeren Currys verarbeiten. Thilak, der Property Manager, zeigt gerne wie, wenn er Abendessen kocht, was sehr zu empfehlen ist! Die Aussicht vom Wasserturm über den Dschungel ist beeindruckend. Obwohl man von den Häusern rundum wenig sieht, ist der Garten eingebettet in einem lokalen Dorf mit sehr freundlichen Nachbarn, die super leckeres Frühstück zubereiten! Der nahe Strand (zu Fuss in 15min zu erreichen) ist perfekt zum Surfen. Es gibt auch sonst viel zu sehen und unternehmen in der Umgebung. Teeplantage und Tempel sind durch kurze Tuktuk-Fahrt erreichbar. Kurz: ein perfekter Ort für ein Time-out, um abzuschalten und die Köstlichkeiten Sri Lankas zu geniessen! Sehr zu empfehlen!
