Highlights

We'll be staying in a beautiful beachfront 19-bedroom colive in downtown Weligama, which will house all of our tribers under one roof.

We will have exclusive use of a private section of the coworking space, large enough for 20 people. The communal open-air kitchen is fully equipped with two stoves, three fridges, and plenty of dry storage space, and is situated on the rooftop. We have a paid laundry service in-house and a pool!

There is a highly rated cafe in the bottom floor of the property that is open between 9 am and 8 pm. Beautiful Weligama beach is a mere 300 meters from the colive. 


Good to Know

There are only private rooms available on this Chapter. 


We won't have the entire coworking space to ourselves, as the larger space is open to locals as well. The same goes for the cafe on the bottom floor and the pool, which will both be accessible to locals. But nobody but us will have access to our living quarters. 


The pool is technically accessible to cafe patrons but in reality, it is only really used by people in the colive (aka us).

This is not your usual digital nomad destination, due to its less reliable infrastructure. We are staying at an established colive/cowork to make up for it. Still, outages can occur. In that case, the property has a backup  electric generator on hand.

We'll be in this tropical location during shoulder season, Temperature highs range around 30°C (86°F), the lows around 24°C (75°F). Occasional rain showers will happen, but humidity levels start to decrease, providing more comfortable conditions for outdoor activities. It's a good time to enjoy the beaches and engage in water activities,

Optional add-ons: They offer airport transfer Colombo - Weligama - Colombo: $75/car (one way, max. 3 pax +luggage)
