We prescribe you holidays

Sounds good, I’ll take them

The Doctors House Prescribing Holidays since 1822

The Doctor’s House is a 200-year-old former Dutch and Ayurvedic hospital, situated on the south coast of Sri Lanka in the beautiful beach side village of Madiha.

It is the product of a couple of Australian guys whom openly admit to having zero hospitality experience, but simply aim to have a bit of fun whilst hosting and creating a good vibe.

We serve breakfast, wood-fired pizzas, snacks, desserts, good cocktails and the COLDEST BEERS in Sri Lanka. We also have 2 dorm rooms (a 4 bed and a 6 bed).

So come eat, stay, drink and play at The Doctor’s House in Madiha!

We recommend good sleep . . .

Yes, I need holidays

Things to do we dont want you to stay in bed all day

Surfing

For the surfers, we provide board rental. With three excellent breaks within a short walking distance, you’ll love it! However, these waves are generally for the intermediate to advanced surfers.

Yoga

Yoga is offered 7:00am daily upon request.

Snorkeling

Snorkelling is at your doorstep. There is an inviting lagoon out the front with plenty of corals and fish. The area is also very popular for snorkelling with the turtles.

But It is a good idea to just Relax too!

People Frequently asked us the following questions

How do I get there?

We are located about 500m from Galle Rd, where you can find the Walgama Bus Stop. You can travel from here to just about anywhere on the South Coast via bus. You can also hire tuk tuks very easily and it's about 300LKR to Matara (where there is a bus station that services all of Sri Lanka) and about 500LKR to Mirissa. There is also the Matara train station located about 3kms away from us. If coming from Colombo, we recommend getting the highway bus to Matara as these buses run constantly all day (from 6am – 8:30pm). There are 3 main places to get this bus from (depending on what location suites you best) and they are Pettah, Kaduwela, or Maharagama. The bus trip is approximately 2.5 hours. If coming from the airport, we recommend getting the highway bus from there straight to Matara, however there are only 2 buses daily, so you may prefer to get a taxi/tuk tuk to Colombo and then getting the highway bus from there. Or alternatively, if you are not in a rush and you want to see some sights, then the train from Colombo to Matara is the way to go. It is cheaper and takes longer, but it is fun.

Can you assist with transfers?

Yes, we have partnered with a few drivers that can get you basically anywhere on the island and they are very reliable. Please give us a bit of notice if you do require a transfer, because these guys can get pretty busy in the peak season.

Can I surf in Madiha?

Yes, the waves in the area are great and there are 3 breaks within a short walking distance from The Doctor’s House.
