The owners, Stu & Erandi, split their time between Australia and Erandi’s native Sri Lanka. The Villa is a culmination of a dream to build a place where family, friends and guests can enjoy the delights of Sri Lanka’s south coast in absolute luxury and safety. Our team is now part of our family and you will be treated as family as well.

The building and furnishings were a culmination of years of work scouring the country for inspiration including antique building materials, furnishings and artworks  with the help of our architect, Nuwan Gayanath.

Please enjoy the fruits of our labour...we hope you indulge yourself in this little slice of paradise!
