THE BLUDGE HOUSE | Hikkaduwa

Artiste and alternate living duo - the BLUDGERS have upped and moved away from Colombo, setting up a home-stay venue that took my breath away.

For a home away from home, to get away, eat, pray, meditate, chant, dance, lounge, relax - go do everything or nothing at all. 

Call Sala on +94777038670 for reservations. A double room costs you just Rs. 1,500
