Coliving with us in Ahangama

Launched in 2013, Café Ceylon is situated opposite the famous Kabalana surf break “The Rock” and has morphed into a well-known location. Not just for being a restaurant, but for a spot where the whole local and expat community and foreign tourists come together, making it one of the most social spots along the coast.

We recently updated our coworking space within the grounds of Cafe Ceylon, only 100m from the beautiful Kabalana beach where you can surf, swim or just chill in the sun. We also have long-term accommodation, a restaurant and a cafe with freshly ground local coffee on site that can be brought straight to your workstation.

Relax in our garden hammocks while spoiling yourself with delicious ice cream, or later during the day a perfectly mixed Gin & Tonic from our own Gin Tuk-Tuk.

We also hold live music nights and beautiful markets that fill the garden.

Our Coworking Space

Whether you are an artist or a digital nomad, we have space for everyone that needs a zen, creative, inspiring space to work in.

Our wifi speed is 73mbps download and 46 mpbs upload, and we have a fibre-optic connection. The coworking space has the Zen Room for more private working space. It also offers outdoor working space, and a middle room with a large working space for people to work together.

Furthermore, there is 1 bathroom with a shower if you would like to wash up after your morning or afternoon surf. We have fixed up a small meeting room, which you can rent in 30 min intervals for conference calls. Lastly, there is a small kitchen with a fridge, gas cooker and tea/coffee making facilities if you wish to bring your own food to have whilst you work. All in all, this is the perfect space for you to get all your work done.

Don't forget that our Chillinguito Coffee Shop is right next door and is open from 8:30am - 2:30pm and serves up some delicious sweet & savory pancakes and fantastic locally grown coffee. For sure the perfect coffee break spot.

If you are working late, do not worry, our restaurant opens up for dinner from 5-10pm. Both the restaurant and cafe are closed on Mondays. The great part of the coworking space is that it is open 24/7.

The Surf near Ahangama, Sri Lanka

The Ahangama surf brings something a little different. Yes, it’s got sand-bottomed swells for learners. However, it’s also threaded with rocky points and jagged reefs where intermediates and experts can happily go hunting for glassy lefts and rights.

There are two spots that reign as the headline acts in Ahangama. First is the upcoming beach at Kabalana - right in front our place. Right in the heart of the district, it offers two distinct breaks on opposite ends of the ability scale.

Then there’s the; a bit more challenging Ratith reef, which is a peeler to beat all peelers. At its best, rides just shy of 400m are up for grabs, and it’s even the host of local Sri Lankan surf tournaments.

Our restaurant and cafe

We have something for everyone, from delicious middle eastern style Shawarmas, a British favourite Fish & Chips and some mouth watering Burgers. Start your day with a smoothie bowl or pancake/waffle and a strong coffee. We also have a selection of vegan/vegetarian dishes.

Our bar is fully stocked with some refreshing and delicious cocktails and ice-cold beer. Enjoy these drinks at any time of the day, whether it be a lunchtime beer or a nice sundowner cocktail.

On event nights you will also find our Gin Tuk-Tuk ready to serve you, the one and only fully stocked Gin bar in the south, offering you a variety of Gins and cocktails prepared to your preference.

Music is our passion so we make sure that there are regular music nights during the week keeping you entertained during your dinner time. The music nights provide a stage for local musicians to showcase their talent.
