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 beachside village of Madiha. It was made by a few Australian men who openly admit to having zero hospitality experience, but aim to have a bit of fun while hosting and creating a good vibe.
It is a destination fit for party lovers, who want to stay at a quirky location, which offers fantastic food, drinks, games and activities. You cannot get bored here as there is so much to do. Even though it was once a hospital, it has not turned into one of the most fun places to stay for both locals and tourists. The site has eateries and dorm rooms that you can hire to spend your entire day and night here. Along with this, there are many water sport activities, indoor and outdoor games that will keep you and your friends and family entertained throughout your stay.
The highlights of staying at The Doctor's House are the freedom to hang out under the palm trees and taking in the glorious sights offered by the Laccadive Sea. They have set up a very casual yet ambient dining area, and it is spectacular in the afternoon and evening where the warm lights and relaxing tunes let you forget about your worries and busy life.
The main activities at The Doctor's House are Surfing and Snorkelling. For the surfers, there are amazing surfing spots just walking distance away. There are also places nearby where you can rent out surfing equipment and surfing boards. The water here is a little rough and only for those who know surfing at an intermediate or advanced level. Snorkelling is at your doorstep at this location. There is an inviting lagoon out the front with plenty of corals and fish open to people of all ages. The area is also fantastic for snorkelling with the turtles.
