place Ambalangoda

size 110 perch

Set on a sweeping, unspoiled and virtually private beach on Sri Lanka’s southwest coast, this seven bedroom secluded estate is away from crowded tourist beaches, with easy access to the highway linking Colombo to southern resorts. The exquisitely furnished rooms open onto westward-facing verandas with stunning views of the Indian Ocean. Currently operating as an award-winning boutique hotel, the property can serve as a private holiday villa, be converted to an ayurvedic centre or used for other commercial purposes.

With just the right balance of natural charm and luxury, this idyllic beachfront property is a patch of paradise located near the fishing village of Ambalangoda, just 90 minutes from Colombo airport and 30 minutes from Galle.

The twin-winged exclusive estate is set amidst a luscious tropical garden with a breath-taking infinity pool. In the main building, a spacious dining-bar-lounge opens onto a wide veranda leading to the garden. A separate wing has two suites, each occupying an entire floor overlooking the garden and ocean with exhilarating sunset views.

The service area including a full kitchen, laundry-utility room and storage space links the villa and the suites whilst the two bedroom manager’s apartment has its own garden and entrance, sitting and dining area, kitchen and pantry. There is also separate staff accommodation with bedroom and bathroom.

The property has frontage to a broad soft-sand beach, a working coast for local fishermen which is shared with only a handful of other small guesthouses and where foreign tourists are rarely seen. The beaches of Sri Lanka’s southwest are renowned for their warm, placid waters, making them ideal for swimming, surfing and sunbathing. In season, it is a nesting beach for olive ridley and giant green turtles. A small conservation project on the property, run by the hotel staff, has produced more than 15,000 hatchlings in the last 10 years.
