Among the facilities, the 'Ul pan geya' or the swimming pool with a pool side bar again keeping the natural theme of the place.The swimming pool is built in one of the clay pits left over from brick-making days.The area is surrounded by trees and constructed to withstand the force of flood waters, as we did not use tile, but polished concrete.At present chemicals are used to disinfect the water, but we are looking into the future use of a carbonic material for that purpose.We placed 6 inches of pebbles in the bottom of the pool to massage the feet, as in a natural pond.
The bar of the Ambalama or the “Inguru Waadiya” is quite the place to experience. With cement “Thachchies” for lamp shades and wine barrels as tables, each table is named after an old town. The gallery of the bar is made out of wood. Clay pots, which were once used to hang on the coconut trees for toddy, now hang on the roof of the Inguru Wadiya. The mood is all set for relaxing and the theme is governed by the old tradition of toddy drinking. It is an Idealistic location for a leisurely drink and outgoing with a group of friends.
