Luxury Villas of Sri Lanka

For the ultimate vacation complete with lavish accommodation, courteous staff and magnificent views, a stay at one of Sri Lanka’s luxury private villas is simply a must. Located primarily in the Southern and Western parts of Sri Lanka along the coastal belt, the beach villas can vary between imposing colonial structures to more modern minimalistic architecture. Generally rented out on a total occupancy basis, some rentals offer individual rooms to guests, especially during the off-peak seasons.

Most luxury private villas located in secluded niches on the island come fully staffed with chefs, housekeepers and gardeners, offer relaxing spa experiences and include various excursions in the surrounding areas. There are several villas located further inland as well for those looking to have a vacation away from the sea and sand.

On a hidden stretch of beach on the Southern coast lies Aditya, an intimate boutique hotel complete with 12 luxurious suites offers visitors the most opulent stay. Each suite is adorned with authentic art and antiques drawn from Sri Lanka, the Subcontinent and the East Indies and comes complete with all modern amenities including a private plunge pool and an in-house yoga master and great cuisine.
The Taprobane Island is yet another unique location – an octagonal beach residence set on two acres of tropical gardens with views of the Indian Ocean all around, the residence has seen various artistes and celebrities stay there including Arthur C. Clarke. With a natural rock pool, infinity pool and a house filled with various works of art and Dutch antiques, the five-suite villa built in the early 20th century is a luxurious getaway with a staff of five to cater to one’s every need.
