An elegant colonial five-bedroom villa, Indisch is situated on the Galle to Matara coast road, just after Ahangama village which is famous for its stilt fishermen.
Art aficionados will love the carefully curated antique selection hailing from the old ‘Indisch’ world of the East Indies which stretched from Ceylon through today’s Indonesia, which is paired splendidly with colourful abstract modern art. Century-old windows and doors rescued from salvage yards and demolished Dutch houses have also been thoughtfully incorporated into the lavishly proportioned build. In the same vein of old world glamour, Indisch also owns a vintage Mercedes for your trips to explore the historic charms of nearby Galle Fort.
Also designed and built with families in mind, the expansive swimming pool have shallow areas for younger guests and there is also a private playground on the property. The huge lawns and directly accessible beach also make for a day of endless activity in the sun; although in wet weather parents can still keep the kids occupied with DVDs and satellite television.
The rooms themselves are luxurious, spacious and air-conditioned with large four-poster beds, classic furnishing and modern bathrooms. Some suites overlook the majestic Indian ocean, while others have a tranquil garden view. All suites open on to their own wide, private verandahs through tall, louvered plantation shutters.
Indisch prides itself on its cuisine and quality local ingredients – dishes from a varied menu of Sri Lankan, Southeast Asian and western cuisines will make every meal a delight. A children’s menu is also available. Best of all, the chef can whip up a seafood extravaganza, fresh in from the nearby waters.
Lightfoot Travel provides tailor-made itineraries that include daily tours and excursions, restaurant recommendations and bookings, and can incorporate the South Coast into a greater Sri Lankan holiday. Take a look at Tea Plantations and Coastal Hideaways as an example of a bespoke itinerary that we can create for you.
