MA-OYA VIEW: SRI LANKAN CUSINES AT HOTEL ELEPHANT BAY

Awaken to sounds of the ma oya, music of the birds or trumpet of elephants walking across your back yard. All our guest rooms provide absolute privacy with maximum interaction with the untamed beauty of Mother Nature. Most of the rooms and suites overlook the ma-oya view.

it looks a modern resort.
it is noon time and it is marvelous to see the whole herd of elephants bathing in the River Maha Oya. The elephants are stall fed. There is very little food material that they can gather from the premises of the orphanage except grass. Consequently, large quantities of food are brought in daily. Each elephant gets approximately 75 kg. of green food daily together with 2 kg. of food mixture containing maize, rice bran, powdered seeds and minerals.
