THE RESORT

Our villas are perfectly suited to the wonderful climate and combine boutique-style luxury and traditional Sri Lankan design and architecture. We worked with local craftsmen and revived forgotten construction techniques to ensure that every building is authentically Sri Lankan down to the smallest detail.

Colours and textures recurrent through the centuries are used throughout, and the rooms are furnished with beautiful antiques from all over the country.

Each villa has a private courtyard, outdoor plunge pool and hot water garden shower – if you’ve never showered by moonlight before, it’s an experience that we guarantee will leave you reluctant to go back to your usual routine…

You can swim or laze by the infinity pool or settle back on the cushions in one of the three open-sided, roofed houses, known as Ambalamas, which were the meeting place within every village in years gone by. There’s also a long veranda, another aspect of traditional Sri Lankan living, ideal for relaxing, chatting, having a drink and enjoying the tastes and smells of Sri Lankan food prepared by our chef.
