Saraii Village, a global sustainable tourism enterprise will invest Rs. 5 million in the next two years on a project to promote responsible tourism in Sri Lanka. The company has invested over Rs. 5 million so far on the project.

Saraii Village, Chairperson Charitha Abeyratne Hettiarachchi said that the Saraii Village was launched in June 2012 to introduce the contemporary culture of responsible tourism to Sri Lanka.

She said that the Saraii Village has four accommodation units, with the capacity to house 18 people, in 'Tree Houses' and 'Mud Chalets'. Both types of accommodation are ideal for those seeking an eco-friendly environment. They are designed with environmental sustainability in mind. Waking up to the 'singing' of birds early in the morning is an experience not to be missed at the Saraii Village. Charitha said that history, adventure and nature are found in the charming city of Wirawila and is ideal for those who seek more than just the sun and sand holiday. "From Safaris in national parks - Yala, Bundala, Lunugamwehera, to picnics at Kirinda beach, tours to the five lakes, Tissamaharama, Kataragama, farm visits, sustainable fishing tours, joining harvesting ceremonies, 'slow food' meals at a farmers' home are some of the activities available for guests.

The Saraii Village is on a three-acre agro forestry property.

"Guests who visit the Saraii Village understand the concept of sustainable travel or responsible travel and we have had a positive response from our customers. Reviews posted by guests on Trip Advisor and Agoda attest to this," the Chairperson said.
