GREAT FOR

    This beach house in Sri Lanka is perfect for those who’d like to to relax and rejuvenate under the balmy influence of the sea. A staffed villa with a private pool and butler at your service. Great for a family of four or 2 couples.

What we love

  • Set on an untouched sandy beach in Hikkaduwa, is an intimate and private two bedroom beach house that comes with it’s own private pool, shaded by the coconut palms that reach out for the clear skies!
  • The two comfortable bedrooms, contemporary in style, are furnished in white and adorned with colourful local fabrics. Each has it’s own ensuite bathroom where you can get fresh after a day out on the beach.
  • Walk barefoot and within a few steps, you can jump into the cosy plunge pool, take a seat at the outdoor sit out area that offers commanding views of the sea and the horizon in the distance, or talk long leisurely walks on the beach. And for when you’d like to move from water to retail therapy or indulge in gastronomic delights, hip restaurants, small boutique and art galleries are a short walk away.

What to know

  • Hikkaduwa is blessed with a colourful underwater world of coral reef that can easily be seen while snorkelling or during low tide. Good boatsmen can help you navigate your way to this beautiful eco-system that shelters a variety of marine species. If you’re lucky, you could be swimming with the turtles that come shyly close to the shore! You could also venture deeper into the sea with one of the many diving schools that are there in Hikkaduwa.
  • Fancy a romantic beachfront barbecue with the sand under your feet and ocean breeze for company. Relish your catch from the ocean served right on your plate prepared in local Sri Lankan style by your own private butler.
  • Liquor is not available at the beach house but you may carry your own. The hospitable staff will be glad to serve it just the way you like it.

Stilt Fishermen

In the past, to battle crowded fishing spots, fishermen affixed sticks in coral reefs right on the water during dawn and dusk to get their catch of the day while balancing themselves delicately on right angled offshoots known as ‘petta’. Many of these fishermen pose for the camera between Welligama and Unawatuna on the coastal strip and earn a better living than by just fishing!

Mirissa Dolphin & Whale Watching

Regardless of which part of the Western coastal strip you’re staying at, we’d highly recommend an excursion to Mirissa to go dolphin and whale watching! The excursions start in the early hours of the day where you join a group of people and head out deep into the sea. On the way, while you soak in the vastness of the sea, trained guides will help you spot the different types of playful dolphins that spy hop and leap out of the water to take stock of their surroundings!

Whales, fewer in number and deeper in the sea, are tougher to spot. But in the company of those who make these trips into the sea everyday, you’re bound to spot one! Watch out for the whale’s spout that appears like a fountain of water, a signal to keep the camera’s ready and eyes wide open! Book with Mirissa Water Sports or Raja & the Whales.

Galle Fort & Lighthouse

The quaint historical town of Galle is a delightful example of Portuguese and Dutch architecture that seamlessly blends in with native traditions. A fortified city that bravely bounced back after the 2004 tsunami, the Galle city is full of wonders and surprises if you’ve got a quick eye and are ready to explore. There’s nothing like spending a day strolling along the decadent ramparts or the ancient cobbled paths with fascinating names such as the ” Moorse Kramerstraat” or the Pedlar Street while peaking into the magnificent Dutch Reformed Church.

Take a selfie with the oldest breadfruit tree in Galle and or have an engaging conversation with many a writers and artists who take a seat at their favourite watering holes in and around the fort area. Call it day with a visit to the Galle lighthouse soaking in the panoramic views.

Originally built to showcase the rich culture and beauty of Sri Lanka, the flagship gallery is situated in a Dutch colonial townhouse and stocks a lovely variety of vintage and retro themed travel and film posters.

While the travel posters showcase a quirky side of ‘Ceylon’ often ignored by mainstream media, the film section that stocks premium classic Bollywood and Hollywood posters is a haven for cinephiles. Splurge to your heart’s content and bring a whiff of Sri Lanka back home.
