VILLA IN SRI LANKA
Our luxury villa in Sri Lanka is a slice of paradise saved just for you after a day of adventure and exploration. Kalukanda House is second home to a London family and we understand what is needed to be comfortable, cosseted and pampered. Sometimes all you want is full rest and relaxation, and that can be done in luxury with us.
“……Rooms were sparkling clean and the staff were very attentive to all our needs all the time….”

Wildlife regularly comes through the gardens and is a wonder to watch. The pool is a hit with everybody of all ages – whether you want to practice your dives, swim at night or just cool your toes. Our yoga shala is the perfect spot to work through asanas or grab a chair and read.
A gentle walk through our quiet village streets and to our local beach brings lovely sights and smiling people.
Our local Turtle Beach is 100m away and small and quiet so just paddling in the water here is perfect. You may well see one of our villagers fishing, and do feel free to pop into the Weligama Sports Club to talk to them about private surf and PADI classes if you want to do this on our doorstep. Alternate teachers are available at a beach just 5 minutes away.
VILLA AT NIGHT
With completely un-interrupted and private use of the villa, it is wonderful to have a night time swim or just sit on the veranda and catch up with email. We have good WiFi coverage and an HD TV that shows all sports, international channels and can stream netflix too.
YOGA and MASSAGES
We have a list of great local yoga teachers who can come to the villa and take you through a class whether you want to really work out or just practice some gentle stretches.
Four en-suite bedrooms are fully air conditioned and come with 4 handmade poster beds and plenty of hanging and drawer space for clothes.
Two of the bedrooms have juliette balconies overlooking the garden. There is an additional air conditioned room on the ground floor with large daybed suitable as a single room, multi room for kids or study.
Bathrooms have walk in showers and Grohe fixtures.
The villa has been built in the colonial style and is full of beautiful antique pieces as well as handmade furniture.
Antique brass statues rub shoulders with teak and jackwood chests, old painted sideboards have been lovingly restored and are dressed with new brass large lamps and wood carvings.
The artwork is made from the family’s own Sri Lankan traditional costumes that their daughters have outgrown – gifts from a grandmother they have been carefully framed and mounted.
Elsewhere you will see antique door handles used as artwork on the walls as well as vintage British Rail prints – a nod to both British ancestry and the beloved railways brought into Sri Lanka during that era of colonial rule.
