Cadjan Earth

North Western Province, Sri Lanka

Cadjan Earth is a remote and rustic eco-retreat with just two open air rooms set amidst acres of wilderness in the remote village of Aanamaduwa in the north-west district of Puttalam in Sri Lanka. Enjoy nature and rural living at this tranquil setting.

At a Glance

  • Comprised of just two rooms, Cadjan Earth feels more like a home than a hotel

  • Cadjan Earth is very remote and built in a natural clearing in bush land

  • Bird and animal lovers will enjoy the wildlife on site

  • Rooms are open air and there is no electricity - they rely on solar power for some lights, hot water and fans

  • The Lake House has a unique and enormous bath tub overlooking the lake - do not be deterred by the cloudiness of the mineral rich water

Set in a 100 acre private estate, Cadjan Earth is a tranquil retreat from which to really enjoy nature and the serenity of rural Sri Lanka. At just a two hour drive from Colombo's airport, this is a good location from which to start a trip to Sri Lanka.

There are two rooms: the unique two-storey Tree House designed around an old tamarind tree and the single storey and more secluded Lake House overlooking a small lake. Both rooms are built without windows and doors to make the most of the views and surrounding nature. It also keeps the rooms very cool by allowing a breeze to flow through. There is no electricity in either room.

The owner has decorated in a stylish way with antique furniture and colorful linens and the Lake House in particular has quite an African safari lodge style. A cook and a housekeeper are always at hand to help and the owner is incredibly friendly and well traveled.

Most guests just want to relax and take in the surroundings but there are a number of things to do in the surrounding area. Wilpattu National Park is not far away and is a haven for wildlife enthusiasts. Others may enjoy walking through the nearby villages, visiting a local Buddhist temple and even Dolphin watching between December and April near Kalpitiya.


Lake House:

Very spacious with two double beds (with mosquito nets), plenty of seating and a dining table on the veranda. There are bathrooms either side, one with a basin and WC and the second with a hot water shower and large concrete bath tub overlooking the lake. Can sleep up to four guests..

Tree House:

Upstairs in the Tree House is a Double room leading into a Twin Room with a balcony. Downstairs has a sitting and dining area and a separate bathroom. This room is not recommended for those with young children or mobility difficulties due to the steep staircase.


Food is predominantly traditional Sri Lankan but the chef will adapt the menu to suit your requirements. Meals are served in your house and prepared with fresh and local ingredients. Please note that the hotel does not have an alcohol licence but guests are welcome to bring their own.
