Hidden beneath a canopy of trees deep in the heart of Tissamaharama, “Saraii Village” is a private resort featuring a series of mud chalets designed to imitate the open air concept of rural homes in the locale. However, the highlights of the property and a firm favorite with guests of all ages, are the magical tree houses, built especially for the wild at heart.
Saraii is built on the principles of sustainability; and everything about Saraii from its accommodation, to food, to community based experiences, to its toiletries, speak of its commitment to conserve nature and support local culture.
The quaint little neighborhoods dotted around Saraii are a visitor’s delight; their residents as full of quirks and stories as the locality itself. From jovial fishermen and loud, charismatic street vendors to gentle ladies selling curious artisanal handicrafts, the villagers each offer an exciting and new experience for you to look back to once you arrive home. It would be a shame to end your holiday without trying the exotic local products, such as the famous and delicious silky buffalo curd.
