Lake View Lanka is a quiet (no roads or traffic), small and friendly Sri Lankan homestay at the Chandrika Lake near Centauria Hotel and the city of Embilipitiya.

Weve always loved hosting tourists and friends and the cultural exchange it brings.
So we decided to start a new guesthouse to share these moments with you.
Its your chance to have a cultural experience and get to know real Sri Lankan family life.

We hope you will enjoy your stay at our beautiful place.

There are two double rooms available in our guesthouse. Each is spacious and includes a double bed, fan and mosquito net. You have the opportunity to relax while watching exotic birds and enjoy your drinks and meals on the terrace overlooking the beautiful garden and lake.

Sri Lankan and Western breakfast and dinner is available upon request.

A safari to the Udawalawa National Park can be organised at the spot for the standard price. The best time to see elephants and other exotic animals is in the early morning. Pick-up time is 5am. Return 10am.

Room rates include: drinking water, tea, coffee and hot shower. Laundry service is available.

Nimal is an experienced teacher of traditional Sri Lankan dance and Kumudu a brilliant host and cook. Both offer private courses for their guests.
