Our team at Satori are dedicated to make your stay as relaxing, enjoyable
and easy as possible. They work with complete integrity so please trust them
and do not hesitate to ask them for anything that you think will add more
value to your stay. That includes cooking lessons, a cake for tea or coconut
drinks from our trees etc.
Eat & Drink
Our breakfast of tropical fruits, choice of eggs, tea or coffee and toasts
are included in the room rate along with chilled mineral water. For all
further meals and drinks including alcohol required we recommend a kitty
system that has been successfully used since our opening and will save you
both time and money so you can focus on your relaxation.
Once you have settled in your hosts can sit with you and help you compile a
shopping list to cover your needs for your stay. They will give you a clear
idea of what is and isn¹t available locally. They are happy to show you
where the markets are and take you shopping or you can let them take care of
that for you. All your produce is bought locally and at local price.
We operate a transparency policy so you can see the accounts and receipts of
your purchases at any time. We suggest on between 500-1000 rupees per head
per day to cover your needs. Any money left in the kitty will be returned to
you at the end of your stay.
Please note that Galle is not blessed with the best wine supply so we
recommend the wider range available at the duty free located on then other
side of passport control when you come in at the airport.
Our chef can prepare a whole range of delicious & healthy cuisine from
traditional local curries to a number of western dishes. We offer a wide
range of fresh daily salads and juices to accompany all your
When you¹re not out for lunch or dinner our chef is happy to cook all your
meals for you and is also able to help you prepare any dishes you or your
guests may wish to cook yourselves. The kitchen, its utensils and the staff

further laundry requirements our Team will take your items to town and
return them fresh and pressed. This will be charged at local rate and taken
from your kitty if required.
We have a number of Tuk Tuk drivers that are reliable, speak English and
give our guests good rates. Tuk Tuks take between 2 -3 people at a time so
if you are larger group you can organize multiple Tuk Tuks or arrange for an
air-conditioned van than take up to 10 guests. Generally transport is taken
to the local beaches 3kms away or Galle town about 4kms away. Once again our
team will help you organize any transportation requirements and help you
with the prices.
one of the great experiences to be had in Sri Lanka is making your own
shirts and clothing at the fraction of western prices. Local markets offer a
wide range of quality fabrics that can be turned into stylish garments
within days. We recommend you bring out any item of clothing you want to
copy. Ask our team for further details.
Internet & Phone
By spending $6 on a Sri Lankan sim card, which you can usually drop into
any phone, you are likely to save a whole stack of cash on phone bills.

$0.40 USD a minute. The best place to get this is at the airport when you
arrive, there¹s usually a Dialogue office open on the other side of the

speaker system situated in the living room that fills the garden and pool
area with a wide range of tunes housed in itunes on the laptop.

a security guard at the gate. There is also a safe located in the villa.
For those of you not sure whether you are going to experience a totally
relaxing time at Satori , we have an amazing nanny called Adriani . She may
not have many teeth left but she's a genius with babies and young children.
My friends and guests have been specially impressed with her conduct and
ability to calm all screaming babies and children in a matter of seconds. So
whilst you are relaxing in the pool or tucking into a good book Adriani can
keep your little ones amused for hours and it also means you can go out at
night and enjoy the many restaurants on the beach or in Galle Fort. Ask our
team for rates
