Weligama House is a brand new luxury villa, designed and built by an award winning, London based Sri Lankan Interior Designer. The villa is based in Weligama on the South coast famous for it’s miles of golden beaches where surfers languidly sit on their boards and jump onto gently rolling waves. This villa is in the perfect location to spend lots of time enjoying the sea and either learning to surf or practicing your moves.
Originally captivated by the incredible garden that is edged by a huge, natural rock face, the villa was positioned to nestle into its natural setting. Designed in the colonial style reminiscent of the owner’s own Sri Lankan roots, 11 large columns front a stunning façade that includes a gorgeous veranda overlooking the pool and gardens.
Enter the large front door into an incredible and open double height reception space. Impeccably and simply decorated with hand selected antiques and jaw dropping bespoke antique brass ceiling lights, this space is a wonderful spot to relax with a book or a drink at any time of the day.
The villa is glamorous, bright and airy with 4 double bedrooms with hand made 4 poster beds all with en-suite bathrooms. The artwork is an eclectic mix of gorgeous framed Sri Lankan costumes and reproduction vintage prints. A kitchen is available for guests within the house and a second kitchen exists in the staff house where Sri Lankan curries can be lovingly prepared by chef away from the living areas.
The large pool has been designed for swimming and playing and 6 large wooden loungers are a perfect invitation to recline in the gardens and poolside. A garden cabana has been built to accommodate anything from shady lounging to practicing yoga asanas out of the sun.
The landscaped gardens comprise tall majestic palms and plenty of fragrant frangipani and tropical flowers. Groups of shy monkeys hop through the tree tops during cooler times of the day and kingfisher as well as a whole host of other brightly coloured tropical birds are constant visitors.
The house and gardens are gated and private and the beach is a lazy 100m saunter away where you can also learn to surf or take a padi course if you wish.
Dinner and drinks outside of the villa can be found very easily at Cape Weligama (close by to walk) and at a few other beach bars and restaurants in Weligama and other towns very close to the villa. You will receive information from the owners on your booking, with recommendations of places to eat, drink, surf and take on lots of other amazing activities very close to Weligama House. Every effort has been made to make you feel welcome from the minute you enter the gates.
