Overview
Usefull Information
Popular Kalu’s Hideaway is set amidst five acres of Dry Zone wilderness, just a stone’s throw away from the Udawalawe National Park. The brainchild of popular Cricketer Romesh Kaluwitharana, the Hideaway is located just 15 minutes away from the gates of the Uda Walawe National Park.

Little Kalu, no doubt, is the most popular and loveable Cricketer in recent times of Sri Lanka Cricket. Not only did he turn the game upside down with Sanath, but created an image in society that nobody will be able to overshadow for a long time.

‘Hideaway’ is his dream project, what was initially begun as a holiday home for his personal use. After four years of hard work, Kalu has added a new three storey wing with a luxury suite on top, with a 360 degree view.

The total room capacity has increased to 14. I started this project as a holiday home for my family and Kalu’s Hideaway was born about few years ago with just four rooms,’ Romesh explained of his new journey in the hospitality trade. The tastefully designed eco-friendly hotel, surrounded by an ensemble of teak and landscaped garden with various fruits, is a comfortable resting point between Colombo and the South Coast or Arugam Bay.

Spacious rooms, comfortable beds and good Sri Lankan food make it a tempting base after a jungle safari. The tastefully furnished and spacious accommodations are complete with modern amenities to cater to every imaginable comfort. There may be ample rustic charm in and around Kalu’s Hideaway, but the comfortable charm in the rooms are not found anywhere near the Wildlife Sanctuary. When the guests walk in, it looks very rustic and eco-friendly but it’s geared primarily towards comfort and guests can expect all the essential facilities including A/c rooms, hot water, wifi, and satellite TV,’ he said.

Our main target market is the Sri Lankan clientele. Though it is hot, Sri Lankan dishes at the restaurant, is the main attraction among all,’ Kalu said. Authentic Sri Lankan flavours apart from rice and curry, include pittu, string hoppers, hoppers and much more. Western meals are also prepared and guests may also enjoy BBQs beside the pool or a candle-lit dinner under a starry sky. The visitors to the Hideaway can take their indulgence further at the ‘The Foot’ – the spa designed with quaint, traditional thatched roof and mud hut walls. Yoga is also a free offering on the cards that would be made available for guests in future. For the more adventurous, the banks of the brooks are a fitting spot for camping. Excursions to nearby attractions such as the Uda Walawe Park and the elephant transit home, Madunagala Hot Water Springs, Maduwanwela Walawwa and Vavulpane Caves and the Sankapali Temple could be arranged.
