The Sri Lanka Travel Specialists
The Salt House in Hiriketiya has won a reputation among its youthful clientele as one of the coolest spots in Sri Lanka. A short stroll from Hiriketiya's secluded horseshoe bay, now a haven for surfing enthusiasts, it combines a Sri Lankan and Australian genius for laid-back living to offer a relaxed environment. Its advocates insist there are few more easy-going, achingly on-trend places than Salt House which ranks among our best budget offerings on the island.
There are seven simple but inviting rooms. Ground-floor rooms have a/c and first and second-floor rooms are open plan. All feature private patios and open air jungle-view bathrooms. Access to a private rooftop lounge area and balcony is available to all guests and their friends.
Palm Garden Room: A ground floor a/c room with a super king bed. A courtyard area offers a private space to relax. A writing desk is provided for those who may have to catch up with work whilst they are away.

The modern layout includes a kitchenette and a large open plan bathroom. Comfortably sleeps 4 people with an adjoining door from the master bedroom to the children’s room. The second bedroom consists of good quality bunk beds.
There is a yoga shala in the treetops which haqs a good enough reputation to occasionally see Salt House entirely booked out for yoga groups and which offers morning and afternoon sessions. There is all-day music in the pool-side bar and the food is unashamedly western with its coffee, vegan burgers, cheesecake and smoothies. Hiriketiya Bay is only a couple of minutes' walk away.
Salt Villa is blessed by a location close to Hiri beach where you can join the surfers or the sun worshippers. Midway between the other sought-after south coast beach resorts of Mirissa and Tangalle.
