Welcome to the Jungle!
Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Ahangama town, our beautiful villa is located in a small traditional village surrounded by the lush Sri Lankan jungle, vibrant green rice fields, and the incredibly warm and welcoming local families that live around us. With giant hammocks, a stunning garden and a big communal dining area there’s always a perfect spot for you to set up whether it’s time to chill, chat, check the emails or get the party started.
“So wait, you’re a surf camp… in the jungle?!”
Damn straight – just a 5-minute tuk tuk ride from Ahangama train station and town, you’ll be living smack bang in the middle of 15 different breaks (yes, 15, we counted) all within a 5-15 minute drive. With everything from gentle beginner beach breaks for the whitewash warriors, all the way up to shallow, barreling rights for the shredders, so whatever your level there’s a wave to keep you challenged enough but improving fast.

11:00 – After you’ve finished eating and chatting with the squad, the afternoon is yours! We plan a bunch of different activities in our schedule including road trips, beach volleyball and squad drinks, but feel free to get out and explore on your own! Ask any of our staff for tips on where to go, what to see and how to get there. You’re also welcome to grab a board and go for a sunset surf with your squad buddies.
19:30 – Dinner time! Regroup and share a beer and a chat with Lanka Living squad and staff over whatever delicious meal the chef has whipped up for us that day. You’ll also get your lesson times for the following day, as well as a brief of any upcoming activities and day trips, so listen up!
20:30 – The after-dinner routine varies from day to day. There are Netflix & Chill nights in the jumbo hammock, Games night in the dorm, and party nights when there’s no lesson the next morning. Sit back and chill or join in the festivities! *
*Please note the above times & activities are merely indicative, and not a fixed schedule you’re locked into. We’re always flexible, and you’re always free to do as you please, it’s just snapshot of all the cool stuff our little surf family gets up to.
