Isakova Anna

Having practiced yoga for eight years, Isakova started teaching after completing her Kundalini yoga teacher course. She continued her practice in Thailand and in 2014, she learned Thai massage. She has spent time in India at the Sivananda Ashram and completed an Ayurveda therapist course at the Ananda Spa Institute.

For her, yoga is a way of life.

"really back to nature"

I loved all the wildlife, especially the birds, the feeling of really being part of the natural world. The room and bathroom were lovely and I appreciated the kettle to make my own drinks. The staff at the restaurant were delightful. Anna gave a great massage and had designed an excellent programme of activities, even including an extra walk by her favourite lake which I loved. she tried her best to adapt to my needs as I was the only participant.

The location, the tree houses and the mud huts, the yoga practice, the food, the massages, the staff, the trips to the lake and Yala National Park.

"Amazing restorative time in Saraii Village "

The yoga and meditation with Anna, the staff attitude and attention to each of the guests, the tree house - amazing to see the sun rising from the bed, the food so delicious, diverse and fresh, the Ayurveda massage by Anna. The Safari (got lucky and saw leopards), the boat ride on the lake and birds watching.

"Wunderbar!"

Die Unterkunft im Baumhaus ist natürlich sehr speziell und ich genoss sie in vollen Zügen. Luftig und wirklich naturnah, mit allem ausgestattet, was ich brauchte und großzügig dimensioniert. Das Service-Personal war aufmerksam und liebenswürdig, ausgezeichneter Service, der Chef selbst fragte auch regelmäßig nach. Der Koch kann wunderbare Dinge zaubern und seine Sri Lankan breakfasts waren großartig.

Anna war grandios. Ich habe viel mitgenommen und sag Danke! Sie war nicht nur Yoga-Lehrerin, sondern wunderbare aufmerksame Begleiterin auf den Ausflügen. Ich hätte wirklich mehr Tage buchen sollen... Die Ausflüge waren alle perfekt organsisiert. Insgesamt ein wunderbares Erlebnis, ich freue mich sehr, dass ich es erfahren hab und kann es nur wärmstens empfehlen

Amazing food, authentic cultural interactions, and encounters with the wild beings in Yala National Park - all under the amazing tree houses of Sarai! ​Unlike most artificial tree house you find, Saraii stands out in their amazing creations immersed in nature.

From the refreshing glass of umbrella juice offered upon arrival to their authentic experiences like 'cook your catch' and 'farmer's lunch' will keep you entangled upon the 'Magic of Saraii'

We had the chance of accommodating in a ‘tree house suite’ which was an absolute bliss and among the famous of all other room choices. Ideal for a group of friends and maybe for a big family! Hosting up to 8 guests on 2 floors, this space has got plenty room to sit back and relax on your much-awaited getaway.

To give meaning to this eco experience, we had 2 guests visiting us from time to time. Two magpie robins that refused to leave our company while we were getting by.

All bath products that kept to be used, have been made by a local lady who produces all natural, non-chemical items like body wash, lotion, shampoo and etc. These are all influenced by spices and herbs like cinnamon.

We had the chance to look at all the other room categories they have but hands down we recommend staying at the Tree House Suite for our guests. For experienced and older guests, we would like to recommend the Mud Chalet suite that is designed as close to the real indigenous homes in the rural locality. The walls made of mud are cooling through the warm daylight and is perfect for those who prefer to stay closer to the ground.

The atmosphere is a bit warm, but the tree house experience is memorable. Especially at dark, the feeling you et is amazing. Hotel service is really good, and even the food. You feel like you live on top of a tree. Normally there is a little wind and the creepy sounds of the tree make the experience even better. Treehouse is bit smaller, but an experience needs to have once again.

It's quite place and loved the tree house concept. The stuff was really good and very friendly. Had the best food. Had a great weekend. The best was the place is pet friendly. Cooked what we asked for and what we requested for pets as well.

This was a wonderful experience to have staying in a tree house, we slept like a log so to speak, The food was amazing the staff could not be any friendlier we had a great couple of nights here, an extra night would of been better. It is close to the national park to see the elephants in their natural environment. The only comment i give is if your a bit older make sure you book the tree houses with stairs and not ladders as getting up could be a bit challenging
