What is there to say? A slightly cantankerous beach dog with white socks, who constantly wags her tail, and is known for her bark! But look at those puppy dog eyes!
Girl was on the fringes of Udekki for a long time. Another one who discovered that life at Udekki was better than the fishing village. For the last 2 years I have been trying to get a proper collar on her – all we can manage is a ribbon. She was tied up for hours in the sun with no water hence her fear of having anything around her neck. And although she loves attention she will often cower as though she is expecting something bad.
As she was always on the fringes we had not been able to get her desexed. And then it was too late! She was obviously very pregnant! August 18 months ago she had 8 puppies, yes 8! And she’s not the biggest dog! She had them in the trees behind the beach between Udekki and the navy base. Fortunately we were able to find homes for 7 of her puppies, and of course we then got her vaccinated and desexed – and then that’s when she decided that life at Udekki was the better option! Strawberry was her one puppy that we didn’t initially find a home for, and he became one of the Udekki dogs. Yes, it is a ‘he’ despite the name.
Girl has become a little calmer and a little more used to life with people and with other dogs. But she is still the best guard dog at night! Despite this sometimes fierce front, she loves attention and will often run inside just to say hello and to enjoy a pat! Every morning she is upstairs ready for breakfast with the other dogs. She is the most delicate eater, and always waits for permission and a little attention before eating.
We have no idea how old Girl is, but she is now well and truly one of the Udekk dogs. She eagerly awaits the traditional sunset beach walk – and will come and find you if you’re not there in time!
Another ‘guest’ post from one of our young guests! 8 year old Luka recently visited Sri Lanka with an extended family/friend group – and they chose to spend some of their time at Udekki!
Udekki enjoyed having them, and we’re glad they enjoyed Udekki too! We especially love the fly protectors for the beds (aka as mosquito nets!). We can’t wait until you all visit again! And Luka, then you and Glen can continue playing the Blues!
The space is massive; it had a really cool tree house, an amazing magic window, an awesome H pool, and some pretty cool villa’s with fly protectors for the beds.
It is a very relaxing place and the food is great and there’s lot’s of it!!! There is fruit to seafood and snacks in between. My favourite part of the food personally was the Crab, but I loved all of it.
The waves are absolutely massive on the beach!!!!!
It is a nice place to hang out with family and friends.☺☺
It is great to body surf with mates, but watch out you might get dumped!!!☹☹

Tilly and her family have spent the past 5 days at Udekki. Tilly wrote about their visit to a neighbouring village to donate toys and clothes to families.
‘On the 13th October, me, my Mum, my Dad, my sister and Carolyn went to a town where we gave out old toys and clothes. It made all of the children very happy and it made me happy because I had lots of things that they didn’t have and it was great to pass them on to a person who will play with them more than I ever did.’
Thanks Tilly and family! We hope to see you at Udekki again one day!
