Our exclusive use villa is a slice of paradise saved just for you after a day of adventure and exploration. We understand what is needed to be cosseted and pampered in beautiful far away lands and work hard to make you feel welcome and at home.
Cradled in an enclave by the coast of Weligama, with an auspicious Bodhi Tree above, it’s the kind of spot with a special feeling and an uplifting energy. Some people have mused that it’s a wonder they haven’t built a temple here.
Just 2.5 hours from Colombo by car, you can be whisked to us easily along a speedy new highway.
WHAT LUXURY MEANS TO US
We thought about all the things we wanted covering luxury in the conventional sense, and we made sure we had these covered. Ontop of that an emotional design approach was taken when thinking about how we want to experience Sri Lanka through the villa. We designed for human connections and 360 degree sensory experiences, so that you can immerse yourself in our little corner of the world and safely lose yourself in all of it.
4 double bedrooms all with en-suite shower rooms come with handmade 4-poster beds created by local craftsmen as standard. The rooms are designed for deep, dreamful sleep and have handcarved shutters that open out to our jungle garden, teaming with beautiful wildlife. Waking to the sound of the dawn chorus or watching the monkeys swing through the trees from the upper floor balconies connect you to nature in a very spiritual way.
Expect hot power showers and comfortable mattresses with the fluffiest pillows, clad in great linens. Air conditioning is in every room for extra hot days but many guests love the cooling breeze on their skin wafted from the ceiling fans instead.
Fluffy towels and organic toiletries are in the rooms for your use during for your stay.
Entering the house you will be greeted by the grand high ceilings enclosing a spectacular space, beautifully styled with hand selected antiques and 1.8m specially commissioned chandeliers that enhance the dramatic sense of scale in the villa.
You can expect reliable, fast Wifi, international plug sockets and ceiling fans in these spaces too. Gorgeous Jasmin scented sticks burn gently and waft through the high space transporting you back in time. We have made sure that every one of your senses comes alive when you stay with us.
We have trained our staff to offer you the best possible service, without any airs but with an attention to detail that gives you a sense of familiarity and being at home. Beer is served in chilled glasses, rooms are discretely cleaned and beds made daily and we can organise special occasion celebrations at the villa or at beautiful locations within easy walking or tuk tuk distance.
Wildlife regularly comes through the gardens and is a wonder to watch, we have been lucky enough to see Eagles, Kingfisher visit the pool every day and even watching the huge trees sway in the breeze is mesmerising . Our yoga shala is the perfect spot to work through sun salutations and stretches, or grab a comfortable seat and read during the day. As the day draws to a close, candle lit gin and tonics, colourful chats and snacks are usually held here while the sun sets and chef whips up the evening meal.
The pool is a hit with everybody of all ages – whether you want to practice your dives, swim at night or just cool your toes. Lying on your back, looking above you will see palm trees, blue skies and shy, curious monkeys. Poolside beds are a favourite spot to snooze beneath the umbrellas or read your holiday fiction. Dreamily watching pretty dragonflies occasionally whir past can become an activity in itself.
Pool is 15m x 5m, it is long and deep. Children need to be supervised at all times by adults, our pool is open to the gardens and house and because we are a private location, there is no life guard on duty.
A gentle walk to our local beach brings lovely sights and smiling people.
Our local Turtle Beach is 100m away and a seasonal beach bar draws in a few surfers and paddle boarders from nearby villas and boutique hotels. There is nothing more relaxing than watching the sunset from this spot, and hearing the ebbing and flowing of the ocean waves as the light turns golden and the sun drops off the horizon.
You may well see one or two of our villagers fishing, and an early morning walk to the cove will reward you with the sight of fishermen coming in with their catch of the day. Stop and watch what they unload and then head down to the beach for a morning walk before breakfast.
We have lots of places that you can saunter to from our gates for a change of scene from fresh tuna salad and a cold Lion Beer, to a soft shelled crab curry served with ice cold wine.
