The Island on Bolgoda, Sri Lanka
An idyllic get away from your daily routine. For an intimate or a larger gathering, we’re here for you.
The 2-storey villa has 3 fully-furnished bedrooms, each with their own en-suite bathroom. You can either book the entire villa or choose individual rooms.
The downstairs room, with its proximity to the communal living spaces, makes a good base for families and groups. The 2 upstairs rooms have floor to ceiling windows offering expansive vistas of the Island and lake. Each room has shared access to the dining room, the open and breezy veranda, lawn and pool.
The dining room, with its 8-seater table, is open on 3 sides, making it airy and bright. While you have the comfort of being indoors, thanks to the open doorways, you can still enjoy the tropical outdoor feel and be serenaded by the chirping of birds.
Offering you cool respite from the sun is the colonial-style veranda that spans two sides of the villa. The comfortable armchairs fuel good conversation. Or, sprawl and be lulled into a dreamy stupor by the quiet lapping of the water.
The silent generator provides an uninterrupted power supply and there is clean water from all the taps. So you get to enjoy creature comforts amidst a rustic setting.
