About the neighbourhood
Set in two acres of lush jungle, Chawton House East is on the edge of a large, undulating, forested village. Paddy fields are situated around the outskirts of the village and the ocean is only minutes away by tuktuk. Matara is half an hour in one direction and the smaller town of Dickwella is half an hour south. There are several good hotels within easy reach of CHE and many local eateries.
Transport can be arranged, varying from tuktuks for easy local travel, cars or vans for longer day trips or r runs to Colombo and the airport.
Car not needed
How to get there
Between the 73km and the 74km road markers in Pathegama Junction, on the coastal road from Matara to Dickwella. Turning inland at this junction, away from the coast, and travelling 1.4km up Udupitiya Road, takes you to the entrance of Chawton House East, opposite the Pathegama South Temple. Ask any of the locals for directions if unsure!
