“Diyabubula means “bubbling fountain” – there is a bubbling spring on the property. Diyabubula also symbolizes the power of the earth and the creativity bubbling up in this magical location.”

Diyabubula, the Barberyn Art & Jungle Hideaway, is a small luxury lodge, a boutique hotel consisting of five villas, located near the town of Dambulla, in central Sri Lanka. Renowned Sri Lankan artist Laki Senanayake designed the place as a hideaway to compliment his water garden. He chose 100 year old railway sleepers as basic building material. This wood, seasoned by sun and rain over a century, has been combined with sleek and beautiful timber sourced from all over Sri Lanka, and hand-crafted right at Diyabubula.

We share this beautiful oasis with Laki: he continues to live and work in his minimalist space.
