Eco chic accommodation on the southern coast

Lime & Co is an eco chic travel and leisure brand conceptualized in 2016. Having introduced Lime & Co Kaba in Kabalana, a year ago, the brand will soon be opening their second property this month.

Lime & Co Midi, appeals to those who seek value accommodation with style on the southern coast of Sri Lanka. Located in the idyllic town of Midigama, home to five of the best surf breaks in the south, it forms a backdrop ideal for surfers and barefoot travellers. Targeting travellers on a budget, the brand focuses on providing hospitality in a sustainable and eco-friendly manner. Building materials have been sourced from local craftsmen and built by the local workforce, creating valuable employment for the community. Reused terra-cotta tiling on the roof, reclaimed doors, repurposed brass sinks and antique recycled columns are some of the materials used. The walls have been lime washed and provide a natural cooling effect. In keeping with the brand’s belief in being environmentally friendly with a low carbon footprint, air conditioning has been replaced with large windows that harness the sea breeze. Lime and Co Midi has 12 rooms in total; 10 of them are private rooms with attached bathrooms (double/twin) and two are four-bed dorms. The outdoor space is complete with a plunge pool and sitting area. There is no compromise when it comes to quality or style as the brand’s design philosophy includes cool concrete floors, simple, yet, comfortable furnishings, large open spaces and a relaxed vibe.
