Lightfoot Travel’s Head of Indian Subcontinent Harsha gives us his picks for Sri Lanka
01
BEST FOR CULTURE

The 19th-century 41 Lighthouse Street can be found within the heart of Galle Fort, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It retains all of its original charms, including walls made from coral, but it also features imported linens and toiletries and a SONOS sound system. And when you’re ready to venture out, you’ll discover that it’s also within walking distance of all key sights and museums.


02
BEST FOR BEACH LOVERS

The Last House is found on Mawella Beach - two kilometers of unspoilt beach on the South coast. Designed by famed architect Geoffrey Bawa, the six-bedroom villa in Sri Lanka is the epitome from barefoot luxury. Tiptoe across your manicured lawn straight onto the beach. Here you can go swimming or bodyboarding and if you want to venture even further you can book a day trip to go whale watching.


03
BEST VILLA FOR FOODIES

Named the most beautiful villa in Sri Lanka, there’s no doubt that Meda Gedara is a must-visit. It’s particularly sought after by foodies as the villa comes with a trained chef who was the Chef de Cuisine at the Anantara Tangalle’s Il Mare restaurant.


04
BEST VILLA FOR ADVENTURE ADDICTS

Nine Skies in Ella provides the perfect base for adventures in Sri Lanka. You trek along endless trails and ride the 500-meter zipwire across the landscape. You can also enjoy ATV rides, mountain biking, and abseiling adventures. You can ease those muscles at the end of the day by taking a dip in Nine Skies’ outdoor pool or sip sunset cocktails at the bungalow’s panoramic viewpoint.

The Lightfoot Team travels to Sri Lanka at least once a year and can recommend the best villas and experiences. Let us help you experience Sri Lanka with a tailor-made itinerary that suits you. Enquire now!
