The History

We are a family run business, namely Ramesh & Liz and 2 children Jay and Mili.  Liz met Ramesh in Feb 2004, revisited Sri Lanka again later that year and then decided to come to live there permanently in Jan 2005.

The Gecko land was bought in Oct 2005 and we have gradually built up the business from only selling homemade ice creams, coffee & cake into a small hotel, with a 50 seating restaurant (whoever wanted a quiet life?)

Due to the lack of decent schools in the area we have had to part relocate to Kandy, you will however find us here most weekends and holidays.  In our absence Prasanthi (lovely manager!) and Sasi (great chef!) together with the rest of the fab team will do their very best to make your experience here as enjoyable as possible.

We also have a beachfront plot of land ‘COOL CHAMELEON’ where we are growing (as organically as possible) salad & veggies, herbs and all sorts of other stuff.  This is very close (i.e. 4 mins walk) to a surf break locally known as ‘Whisky Point’, which is located about 25 mins walk north of another surf break - ‘Pottuvil Point’.  There is road access to both Whisky Point and our land.
