Our stay in Captain's Lodge was an unforgettable one! The calmness of the place and the astonishing nature were highlights. The caretaker couple, who cooked amazing food and even showed us around, are simply the nicest people on earth! Petra was extremely attentive and available whenever we needed anything. Overall a fantastic and highly recommended place!

The Captain's Lodge is a great choice if you're looking for somewhere secluded and calm near Kandy. It was wonderful being up in the hills with only the sounds of nature and nearby temples. Petra was extremely helpful in her communications with us and the couple that live on site are absolutely lovely, very welcoming and excellent cooks!

What can I say about Captains Lodge? The only thing that springs to mind, is that this is a small piece of heaven on earth. Its remote enough that you feel like you've escaped from the world but close enough that you can easily get to places. Its a short tuk tuk ride to a main bus road or a doable walk if your able bodied enough. When you are there listening to buddhist monastery chant in the morning and evening brings a level of peace that I haven't found before. All of this in conjunction with the amazing cooking that the caretaker does, makes this the ideal place to escape from modern day pressures and fully restore your zen and energy. Petra is beyond a great host she was always checking on what time I would like to eat and ensuring my experience as the lodge was perfect. I already can't wait to return back for anything escape!!

Had a wonderful overall experience at this gorgeous peaceful lodge with a beautiful view of Lankathileke temple. Great to sit on the lawn in the morning with a warm drink. Had some of my deepest sleeps in the quiet surroundings and the extremely comfortale king size bed. Both Petra, the owner, and the caretaker, Thileke, are very caring and attentive. A minor challenge was that because my Sinhala is zero and Thileke's English is limited, communication between us was often made through Petra via txt msg. It added a layer and one of the things I was trying to achieve in being in such a remarkable setting was to not be on my phone. Regardless, I highly recommend and would definitely comeback though with friends and make use of the entire house.

Petra saved me. I was staying someplace very terrible prior to finding the Captain's Lodge. I am so thankful to Petra and all of her wonderful communication. I was able to move from the terrible place to Petra's absolutely wonderful countryside town. From start to finish you can feel Petra's caring as she is a very down-to-Earth and understanding person. The house is even better than the photos. For countryside life it is quite an experience. I can recommend the Captain's Lodge to anybody.

Hi, I am Petra Alexander Rambukwelle, worked for Sri Lankan Airlines and now married to a it's pilot ( captain) . I have been experiencing in the hospitality industry from my very little age because my father who is a German speaking tour guide plus a chef experienced in Germany too. He himself running a home stay Ayurvedic wellness center where people can relax in the peacefulness of nature while enjoying authentic Sri Lankan life style.

After getting married I started my own career in tourism from this "Captain's Lodge". Further we have extended our service to a safari lodge , an apartment in Nuwara Eliya and Colombo.

I love this industry because my first job also was in customer care unit in Sri Lankan Airlines where I gathered vast knowledge in every way. I would not limit our care only in the bungalow, but also from the time you book in to until you reach back your home safely. We would like to join our hands with guests to help as much as we can in various ways.

My happiness is your care!!!
