What we love
- Set over a large estate on a forested hill and surrounded by manicured gardens is this colonial 5 bedroom villa with a private pool that nudges you into a state of relaxation and calm.
- The well kept gardens tumble onto the deep columned verandah with informal cane seating - a generous space for anytime chatter with tea and coffee. The verandah spills onto the formal living area through the arched doors. Carefully selected Sri Lankan artefacts and vintage pieces decorate the room, effortlessly taking you back to another century!
- Five romantic bedrooms, each fitted with a four poster bed and other period furniture is where you can retire anytime of the day. An indulgent master bedroom with a free standing tub in the ensuite bathroom is situated on the ground level along with another bedroom adjacent to it - both opening up to a beautiful verandah. Three more high ceiling bedrooms, bounded by a running balcony, find their place on the first level.
- The pool situated at the edge of the villa feels like a heavenly tropical escape - the ideal spot to languish away on the loungers listening to the birdsong, or cool off in the pool.
What to know
- With a chef at your service, feast on scrumptious local delights as well as international fare of your choice. Just need to pay for the provisions and let the chef know what you’d like to have and that’s it, await the gastronomic delights to be served. While some locally available wine can be arranged, incase you’re particular about other spirits, do pick those up at duty free!
- The immediate surrounding is that of rich forests and greens that beautifully blend in with the scenic tropical beaches, enchanting lagoons and turtle hatcheries - all less than 10 minutes drive away. Witness species of rare birds on the islands nearby or explore the historic town of Galle, littered with several gourmet restaurants, cafes and boutiques, about 20 minutes drive away.
- A full team of warm and hospitable staff (housekeeping, chef, gardener and security) will be at your service from the moment you arrive.
- While the rates quoted are for 5 bedrooms, the villa can be booked as a 3 bedroom option as well. Get in touch with us on [email protected] for rates and more details on this.
