IBIS

Our ‘Nest’, Owned, Designed ( with the concept and assistance of an internationally acclaimed and awarded Architect, a childhood friend of ours )  and built by us using only local craftsmen, materials and people from the village, Initially as a holiday getaway for us, our 3 boys and family. Our main aim in opening out our home, ‘The Ibis – Wilpattu’ to YOU, is that you feel at home and enjoy traditional Sri Lanka warmth and hospitality.

It is to let you enjoy the joys of nature and tranquility that we so much enjoy and long for in comfort and safety. The staff at The Ibis are, extended family members who have been known to us for some time and they will take care of you like their own.

Having 3 growing teenage boys of our own; food and its quality is a key aspect of our holidays and we assume will be yours as well. Our meals are made with local produce, sourced pre-dominantly from the surrounding home gardens, farms and lakes and cooked to traditional Sri Lankan village recipes by our Chef who is from the area BUT we have ensured the cook knows how to make a few ‘can’t do without’ western dishes as well !

Named after the ‘IBIS’  a bird species from the stork family Threskiornithidae , who were venerated as a God in some cultures and as being responsible for time, the moon and magic, in some other cultures as the sign of fertility which characteristics do justice to the magical and idyllic setting for The Ibis – Wilpattu. This along with the two species of Ibis found on the lake which the property overlooks, was the inspiration for the name of this two bed roomed private
‘Villa’ styled property.
