A perfect name for a luxury experience second to none. Situated on the ground floor opening on to a private verandah next to the seawater pool complete with ancient ebony and rattan chairs, this bedroom contains a four-poster hand-carved king bed with centuries-old window feature bedhead, walk-in dressing room, safe from the 19th century, indoor-outdoor ensuite, with hand, rainwater and outdoor flood showers, toilet and stunning plunge pool set in a private courtyard surrounded by a 3 metre dry rubble wall that is a masterpiece in itself.
One guest described this ensuite as sheer ”showbiz”. Tea and coffee making facilities, fridge, twin vanities and triple robe round out this amazing palatial bed suite.
Emerald & Ruby
These rooms are almost carbon copies of each other, with both situated on the top floor separated by an airy bar room and verandah looking out over the Indian Ocean.
The rooms themselves are very generous in size and contain a four-poster, netted, hand-carved king bed with 18th century windows behind the bed heads which open into a huge modern bathroom with separate bath, hand and rain showers with floors and walls done in the traditional polished concrete which is both aesthetically pleasing and cooling.
Emerald & Ruby are fringed on the ocean side with floor to ceiling solid teak cafe style louver doors that open onto a large private verandah overlooking the ocean and tropical garden with swaying palms.
These rooms are large enough to accommodate a roll-away bed as well and rooms can get slightly better views of sunsets.
Rooms Emerald & Ruby are ideal for a blissful private holiday, relax and to enjoy the Sri Lankan hospitality at its best. Staying in these rooms is a unique experience. Glimpse back to the ‘Colonial Era’ and experience the luxury enjoyed by elites in 18th & 19th Century Ceylon
Set on the Mezzanine floor complete with TV room retreat, luxury bathroom and balcony this room is at the rear of the building and is our “flexible” room with a Queen bed with netting and two generous sized bunk beds.
