A sublime mix of concierge, butler and fount of all knowledge, Wasantha will probably be the first person you meet when you arrive at Ratnakara as he welcomes you with smile and a refreshing fruit cocktail.

As well as managing the household he is the go-to man for everything and anything whether it is arranging a tuk-tuk for trip to the shops, a car and driver for day trips, advice on local beaches, attractions and customs or the best place to find and buy a particular souvenir.

Wasantha has been with us from the very beginning and if there is anything he doesn’t know about the house or the surrounding area we haven’t found it yet. 

He also makes a mean Arrack Sour.
