Tours & Services

Pottuvil
There is a growing number of shops in Pottuvil, around half of them seem to be hardware or builder’s merchants, but you never know when you may need 3 buckets of sharp sand and a bag of cement.  No seriously, there are 3 pharmacies, a fish market, various fruit or veg stalls and shops and lots of tailors so you too can get your favourite clothing item copied into 10 different colours to suit your mood.

ATMs
There is currently a grand total of 3 ATMs in Pottuvil, last year we had none so think your selves lucky people. Bank of Ceylon, Sampath Bank and People’s Bank are the 3 contenders.

Tuc Tucs
These are very plentiful, we can find you a nice driver that doesn’t rip you off. A typical charge there & return to say Whiskey Point is around 1000rs depending on how long you want to stay as waiting time may be added.

Internet
There are plenty of internet shops around (the term internet café would be pushing it).  We offer complimentary wireless in the rooms and restaurant, but you will need to bring your own hardware.  Of course this being Sri Lanka, it is advisable to check with us before travelling as if you are depending on this we would hate to disappoint you.

Laundry
