Sri Villas feature elegant beachfront living that offers undisturbed panoramic views of the Indian Ocean.
As one of the very few privately owned properties on the southwest coast of Sri Lanka, it boasts the rare description of being truly ‘beachfront’. You can sit at the end of the beautiful beach stretching half a kilometre, completely undisturbed, and will barely notice the garden of Sri Villas blending into the background behind you.
Although the villas are equipped to the highest standards of luxurious living, much of the design is based on traditional Sri Lankan homes. You’ll find high-vaulted ceilings, tall louvered doors and windows intended to allow the fresh ocean breeze to filter through the property.
The definition of ‘elegant beachfront living’, Sri Villas is a two-storey villa which may be rented as one unit or separately, comfortably allowing for up to 18 guests. A stunning 30-metre lap pool is situated in front of the villa and, with steps leading to a shallow section on one side, is perfect for children.
Inside, each villa has generous dining and living areas, spacious balconies, private kitchens and master suites with oversized en suite bathrooms. Standing on the right of the property as you look out to sea is Sagara Villa. This consists of three suite-bedrooms, all en-suite, with private living, dining and kitchen area. One of the suites is on the ground floor with the sea-breezes and a ceiling fan and the other two are on the second floor with air-con. All bedrooms have their own balconies or verandahs with stunning views of the garden, the beach and the Indian Ocean.
Nisala Villa is in the middle and overlooks the pool. With two magnificent master suites, a very large private dining and living area, an open plan kitchen complete with a bar and a vaulted ceiling reaching all the way to the roof, this villa is spectacular. This is the ideal villa if you plan on entertaining and sleeps 4.
Araliya Villa sits to the left of the property and like the others, has generous dining and living areas with a modern, part open-plan kitchen with bar. It has four air-conditioned bedrooms – two master suites and a junior suite with a twin bedroom next door. Two private balconies upstairs offer unparalled views of the Ocean and garden, and the private verandah downstairs is the perfect chilling area.
The food here is remarkable. The experienced chef will ask what your daily preferences and requirements are and you may either pay for the ingredients (purchased at the local market), or choose the ‘full board’ option of three set-meals a day. Curries, fresh seafood and healthy, varied Asian and European dishes are the norm. On request, the table may be set up on the beach for you to have an intimate, candlelit dinner. Afternoon tea and cakes will also fulfil your mid-afternoon munchies!
With friendly, English-speaking staff constantly on hand, Sri Villas is the perfect place to completely relax and feel at home. The resident housekeeper/manager is there to answer any queries throughout your holiday. Sri Villas is also an ideal location for important events (weddings, birthday bashes, family reunions) especially when all three villas are rented out.
With Colombo International Airport only a 2 hour drive away, Sri Villas is accessible and the perfect luxurious holiday destination in Sri Lanka.
