It’s very hard to select five, though these are personally close to my heart for very different reasons. And they are rarely offered in mainstream itineraries.
So we've made it easy for you and chosen a Top 5, each with their own special offering which we are sure you will love.
1 - ÀNI SRI LANKA
This all-inclusive beachfront five star property is the epitome of sublime luxury. Created by Reda Amalou and AW2 of Paris, the stunning 15-bedroom suites estate combines contemporary tropical architecture with the finest bespoke finishes and furnishings. The facility itself includes a spa, oversized oceanfront pools, dedicated children’s pools with exciting waterslides, and a plethora of spaces for dining and entertainment.
Gourmet menus, mixologist-curated bars and other decadent surprises are included at no additional charge. In addition, fitness & wellbeing facilities, tennis courts, waterslides & instructional kitchen are exclusive.
2 - HALALA KANDA
Halala Kanda is a perfect combination of colonial charm and style. Halala Kanda, or Firefly Hill, was built in 1912 by Simonmeru Gunathilaka, the romantic son of a wealthy plantation estates owner from the north of Sri Lanka, to win the heart of his young local bride.
After many decades empty, the estate was re-discovered in 2010, overrun with jungle and near ruin. A labour of love, the new South Pacific owners, chose to work with local craftsmen, to restore the house back to its former opulent splendour, whilst adding their own eclectic design aesthetic.
Set in the lush plantation hills of Weligama, Halala Kanda once more offers a serene oasis to relax and recharge, yet is within easy reach of the pristine southern beaches and the historic charm of Galle.
3 - THE NOTARY'S HOUSE
The Notary’s House is a unique luxury six bedroom boutique hotel set amidst large gardens and a coconut grove, conveniently located just 45 minutes’ drive from the Colombo international airport and 30 minutes from the coastal city of Negombo. Traditional and contemporary Sri Lankan architectural and design elements compliment the property's heritage. The Notary’s House offers spacious air-conditioned rooms, a swimming pool and hearty food in a relaxing lakeside setting. A perfect start to a Sri Lanka adventure!
4 - SIELEN DIVA
Sielen Diva is a contemporary seven-bedroom beachfront luxury villa that provides the tranquility and comfort. It is modern, with many open spaces, large bedrooms and luxurious bathrooms. All bedrooms offer panoramic views of the Indian Ocean from floor-to-ceiling glass windows. The grounds consist of many quiet and private spots to enjoy the sunshine, and the infinity pool is ideal for a languid float or an energetic swim. This is definitely for those who want to live the life of “the rich and famous” and post fabulous captures on to Instagram.
5 - STAFFORD BUNGALOW
Stafford Bungalow is a 130-year-old refurbished planter’s bungalow located amidst a working tea estate in the village of Ragala in the Sri Lankan hill country. Built in 1884 (upgraded in 2013) by a Scottish plantation manager, this four-bedroom Nuwara Eliya bungalow has an old-world charm and is designed with wooden floors, fire places and gabled roof.
