It all started with a love story. A love for the ocean, a love for nature, and a will to share this beautiful area of the island by creating an authentic place of gathering.

On the South Coast of the island where the green tropical jungle meets the Indian ocean, we created a home away from home for people from different parts of the worlds to connect with others and themselves, relax, discover, exchange and be. A place surrounded by the healing and relaxing energy of living nature.

The countless nights of laughter by the fire, sharing stories from different countries, the incredible encounters and the instant connections that happen throughout the seasons are a true gift. We like to keep it small and simple, following the rhythm of the island.


You will find Into The Blue, on a lush land abundant in fruit trees walking distance to the ocean, between Tangalle city and Hiriketiya bay, in a picturesque fisherman’s village. We have 4 private cottages with en-suite bathroom and we aspire to keep the atmosphere intimate and relaxed. Wake up to the sound of the singing birds, practice yoga amongst the tropical trees, surf in warm transparent water, experience real, authentic Sri Lanka and discover its local culture and spirituality.

 »Beautiful accommodation in a jungle-like garden brimming with bird life and just a short walk from one of the best beaches we experienced in Sri Lanka. The hosts are incredible and this spills over into the ambiance of the place. We loved our visit and would happily stay again. » – Tamryn



 »Mahalia and Sanka are so kind people, so friendly and helpful with everything. They are very attentive to anything that you ask or need during your stay. The place is great, very quite with birds singing around and monkeys on the top of the trees. The nearby beaches are even nicer as explained, one of them is very calm, just the right one to learn surfing. All people on this pleace are so kind, friendly, helpful as you only can imagine. We really enjoyed our time in this place and will definitely come back. Looking forward to it. » – Kathrin

 »We stumbled across Into the blue whilst staying in Unakuruwa and we are so, so grateful to have found such a special place! Staying with Mahalia and Sanka was the highlight of our 3 weeks in Sri Lanka 🙂 they are brilliant hosts and cannot do enough to ensure you have an amazing stay. They make the most delicious sea food too and even took us surfing to some less crowded local breaks. The location is perfect and you feel like you are in your own little bubble in the jungle and the cabanas they have created are authentic and super natural, but also modern and comfortable. We felt like we had found a little home and family in Sri Lanka and will definitely be back!! We highly recommend Into The Blue, it is one of a kind and an incredible experience. » – Heidi
