Villa Sulanga has four air-conditioned, ensuite bedrooms, each with double doors opening onto the balcony or veranda. Although very similar to Villa Vatura, it's distinct features are a bar opening onto the veranda, and a deeper swimming pool. Consequently we think of it as slightly more adult friendly.
Two and a half acres of lush tropical gardens, the steady sea breeze and the hypnotic sound of the Indian Ocean rolling onto the reef, make this a very special place to unwind and reconnect with the simpler things in life.
Combining the best of contemporary Sri Lankan design, with traditional materials and craftsmanship, Villa Sulanga (wind) and Villa Vatura (water) each have four large en-suite double bedrooms, its own swimming pool and house staff who will happily attend to your every need.
Intended as informal beach houses where you can just kick off your shoes and relax, the wide verandas, open living areas and colonnaded courtyards, blur the boundaries between house and garden and heighten your awareness of the natural elements around you. The open design allows for cooling breezes to waft through the villas and keep it comfortable even in the height of summer.
You can rent each villa individually or the entire property.
Meals cooked for you at market price: Breakfast is complimentary, so each morning our cooks will prepare fresh fruit, toast, eggs any style, hoppers, roti, tea, coffee and freshly squeezed juice, to set you up for the day.
And they will happily prepare delicious Sri Lankan curries, fresh fish or lobster straight from the fishermen on our beach, or roast chicken and other simple western dishes for lunch or dinner, and all you pay is the cost of the ingredients in the market that morning.
We are a family with two young kids, and this place was just the perfect for us--a large, immaculately maintained property where the kids could run around, splash in the pool or go beachcombing in the beach, which is literally yards away.
The villa itself is stunning--spacious, light-filled, very tastefully furnished and immaculately maintained. We thoroughly enjoyed every single meal Deepani and her staff prepared for us--the quality and value were just outstanding. And Deepani and her staff were incredibly friendly, helpful and welcoming--and particularly with our kids.
Lastly--the location is great. The villa is within walking distance of Mirissa beach--we highly recommend walking there along the beach and exploring the temple on the hill along the way. Galle is 45 mins away, and there are plenty of other destinations along the way.
All in all--a perfect, restful retreat. We couldn't have asked for a more relaxing place to stay.
