Spend your holiday at Villa Atulya

Spend your holiday in Sri Lanka's spectacular southern beach in a beautiful owner managed Villa. Access from Colombo via southern expressway will be two hours or less and from Katunayaka International Airport to Colombo is two hours.

It is located in Thalaramba, Mirissa where the deep blue waters of the Indian ocean lap at the edge of the property and the famous stilt fisherman will offer the catch of the day.

The surrounding area is full of surprises for the young and the old. There are rock pools full of colourful fish, deep sea turtles seeking sand to bury their eggs, lobster fishermen and sandy stretches of beach for long walks. The area is ideal for snorkelling and boats that will take you on whale watching or deep sea fishing expeditions. You can also explore the surrounding village and the Buddhist temples or simply meet some of the friendly folk always ready to offer a friendly smile.

If you are not into too much activity, the Villa offers a tranquil atmosphere for relaxation, reflection and meditation.

Alternatively, you are welcome to buy fresh fish, vegetables or fruit from the village market and the staff will be happy to prepare them according to your preferences. The Sri Lankan dishes on offer are excellent and prepared according to the traditions of the south. Please remember to specify if you prefer mild or medium spice taste in your food as most Sri Lankan curries can be very spicy.

Breakfast is included in the room rates and can be western or Sri Lankan fare. Please indicate your preferences.

The meals can be served at the dining table or by the pool in an informal atmosphere. At your request, staff will be happy to wake you in the morning to offer "bed tea" according to the famous traditions of the colonial past.

The Villa was designed by the leading Sri Lankan architect C Anjalendran, a protege of the famous Geoffrey Bawa.

 

There are five double rooms with spacious attached bathrooms. They all offer spectacular views of the sea. The antique furniture adds a touch of oppulance of a by gone era to the house and the open varandahs.

 

Staff quarters are separate from the main house and the meals can be ordered from a simple menu.
