Eraeliya Villas and Gardens delivers a unique Sri Lankan holiday experience by offering a collection of villas and suites that have been specially designed to suit families, couples and groups. Unmatched in terms of luxury, style and comfort, our five individually designed freestanding villas tastefully blend local and Asian architectural styles with a fresh and contemporary interior design.
Eraeliya is a haven of peace and tranquility. Our lush palm-shaded garden borders a sandy stretch of beach washed by the Indian Ocean, and is home to a dazzling array of tropical wildlife including monkeys, monitor lizards, mongoose and birds. Eraeliya is the perfect destination for relaxation, meditation and inspiration, and is a stunning venue for a wedding or event.
Eraeliya Villas and Gardens is situated near Weligama, on the island’s southern tip. The hotel is located two hours from Colombo and approximately 45 minutes’ drive from the historic UNESCO World Heritage Site of Galle Fort.
Our villas are located mere footsteps from a near-deserted stretch of sandy beach and the warm lapping waves of the Indian Ocean. The beach offers swimming in season and the offshore coral reefs are excellent for snorkelling.
Our hotel provides a wealth of facilities, including an infinity-edged swimming pool, living areas and lush gardens for dining and relaxing. Our kitchen team prepares delicious international and traditional Sri Lankan dishes to be enjoyed wherever you like – in your villa, on your villa’s private veranda, or perhaps in the garden under the swaying coconut palms and twinkling stars.
Local experiences include surfing, fishing and sailing, as well as spa therapies, beach yoga, revitalising massages and cooking classes. We also organise excursions to some of Sri Lanka's stunning natural and cultural attractions, which may include shopping and sightseeing trips to Galle Fort, or a day trip in search of elephants and leopards in Udawalawe or Yala national parks. Other local highlights include visits to tea, cinnamon and spice plantations.
“Highly recommended! A beautiful place with a lovely, helpful and friendly staff. The hut itself was wonderfully decorated and being set away from the larger villa, offered a sense of privacy while still having the amenities of a full staff and kitchen.”
“Gorgeous villa, best beach vacation!!! The 2 villas are beautiful and decorated tastefully, with gorgeous accessories. the rooms are comfortable and clean and the food was excellent. It was one of the best places we’ve stayed in Sri Lanka and we’re planing to come back real soon”
“A memorable wedding in a wonderful house.”
“An amazing Holiday in an amazing place. One of the most beautiful little beaches I’ve ever seen. We could have spent the entire time there without leaving. The staff were truly excellent – they were available when we needed them, but not at all intrusive.”
