Located in the center of the isle of Mannar, Palmyrah House, offers the perfect starting point to explore one of most unique travel destinations in Sri Lanka filled with history, culture and adventure. Originally built as birding retreat, Palmyrah House has since expanded into an exclusive boutique hotel located on a 30 acre property that can described as more of sanctuary than a hotel per se.
The property boasts 14 spacious rooms, an abundance of fauna filled with a unique variety of bird species, all the amenities you’d expect from a luxury property (swimming pool, gym, library, etc.) and some hidden treasures as well. If you’re lucky you can enjoy a well bath hidden in the hidden oasis while enjoying palmyrah toddy. Also, upon request bicycles are available so you can explore the property or even Mannar town.
And, then of course there’s the food! The crab is to die for and lampris is cooked in a palmyrah leaf. [Running out of ideas!!!]
