The main living area is found inside an open-sided pavilion, that features comfy, modern furnishings, touches of exotic wood and a Geoffrey Bawa inspired aesthetic. There’s also a gourmet kitchen filled with state-of-the-art appliances and meals can be enjoyed in the indoor/outdoor dining room. Also included in your stay are the services of a skilled chef, who specializes in Sri Lankan cooking, a housekeeper and security guard so you won’t need to lift a finger. Since the villa sits on the beach you can explore the pristine coastline, swim or simply sun bathe by the sea. A turtle hatchery is within 5 minutes walking distance. Or you could reach the enchanting city of Galle by road in 15-minute to explore, sightsee, shop or dine. This Dutch city of yore has retained its quaint charm and is home to a several cozy tearooms, the world famous Groote Kerk (Dutch Reformed Church), charming cafes at the recently renovated Dutch Hospital Restaurants, eclectic shops, fine restaurants and fashionable boutiques.
