This stunning private villa is a 170-year-old Walauwa (heritage house) that's been restored to define chic luxury by Sri Lankan Nayantara Fonseka. Previously her own beach bungalow it’s now one of the hottest stays in Sri Lanka.
Simple barefoot luxury is the name of the game here, inspired by the laid-back beach life. The elegant fretwork of the house combined with contemporary interiors and a tranquil vibe make this an incredibly relaxing spot.
Two hours from Colombo along the new Southern Highway on the south-west coast, the villa is set back from one of the island’s best beaches, separated only by a small belt of mangroves and coconut palms. Set in 2.5 acres this is a superbly private getaway.
Four deluxe rooms and a two-bedroom suite (it can sleep 12 people in total) make up the property, with luxurious but unpretentious furnishings that combines the work of local artists with a calm palette.
The friendly staff are on hand to cater to welcome you with cold towels, fresh juices, run the in-house bar and generally make sure your stay is nothing less than five star.
A dining pavilion and a cooling elegant veranda keep mealtimes casual and relaxed as you bask in the gorgeous weather. Choose from the daily changing a la carte menu or tuck into the seafood special – it will be the freshest fish you've ever had!
Laze in the wonderful 50-metre pool and take in the scent of frangipani wafting through the air.
