IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR THOSE TRAVELLING TO SRI LANKA. The Wilpattu National Park has been seriously affected by the current drought and due to this, all wildlife face a severe shortage of water as the tanks & lakes in the national park have run dry. This prolonged drought in Puttalam on the west coast has compelled the Sri Lankan Department of Wildife to temporarily close the Wilpattu National Park from 01st of August 2017 until further notice. Although this will impact visitation in the short term it has been done in the best interest of the park. #FollowADifferentPath #crookedcompass #leopard #srilanka #experience #bucketlist #travel #wanderlust #traveller #traveler

Set amongst the jungle trees and tropical greenery, hidden from the outside world are ten amazing secluded “casas” (guest houses) which comprise Uxua Casa Hotel. Monkeys and parrots and lizards are frequent visitors, whilst guests are close to the authentic, magical, romantic Quadrado (local Square). What makes this stylish and rustically luxurious boutique hotel special is that the accommodation comprises former fishermen’s cottages which have retained the historic aspects of its past. Everything is based on local culture and materials, and it is beautifully and stylishly done. A case in point is the beach lounge, whose centrepiece is an old wooden fisherman boat which has been turned into a bar.
Each of the casas is completely different (one is even a treehouse), each filled with Bahian art and antiques that were salvaged from abandoned Brazilian farms and restored by local artisans. All are splendidly comfortable and have kitchen arrangements of varying complexity, allowing you to be completely self-contained if you wish.

Add to that Uxua has an amazing restaurant, private beach area with sun beds and bar, this 5 star complex has all one could ask for.

Travelling to Tanzania? Tanzania has been battling an increase on concession fees for their national parks.

The local operators have been engaging the government to attempt to postpone the increase until 2018 but this has not borne any results. Our operator is covering all costs for all Crooked Compass travellers until 31 July.
