First of all, we must talk about surfing. In the world, there are few villas that can boast of having their own surf spot, and we have two of them!
Jungle Beach is a unique reef spot, with a sharp left wave, more suited for advanced surfers, and a long flat right wave, for those who have begun to surf recently. Our villa is ideal for surf camps: the waves are reliable from October to April.
From the villa there are stunning views of both spots, and you can easily check the surf or watch the riders right from your own private terrace. For first timers to surfing, the spot can be a bit difficult. It would be better to go to a beach with a sandy bottom and small gentle waves.
The main beach of Weligama is a 10 minute drive from the villa and is perfect for learning how to surf. We can recommend the best surf school and arrange transportation for you.
We have always valued artist-in-residence programs, which enable artists to create outside of their usual environment, time and place. Therefore, we invite artists to visit us, offering them comfortable accommodations for creation, research and development.
Sri Lanka is one of the most amazing places on the planet. We love this island and appreciate the beauty of its wild nature, monuments from colonial times and the awe inspiring, ancient Buddhist culture. Therefore, we want you to be inspired by the beauty of Sri Lanka and tell the world about it!
Below, you can see an example of our cooperation with Michal Korman, a Slovak artist who lives and works in Paris.
In 2015, we invited Michal to visit the villa. A short time later, an exhibition of the artist’s work “Trip to Paradise” was held here, glorifying Sri Lanka as the pearl of the Indian Ocean and an ideal tourist destination.

For lovers of snorkelling – Jungle beach is a real gift. The colourful coral reef is filled with diverse life – sea turtles, stingrays and dozens of species of exotic fish.
Our villa has everything you need for individual or group yoga and meditation. We have a wide variety of spaces for practicing, all of which take advantage of the fresh ocean breeze and inspiring views.
You will find everything from a private terrace to a wooden deck a meter from the surf. Or if you prefer, a shady garden or a meadow with a fresh cut lawn. At your request, we can organize lessons with a qualified instructor, or we would be happy to host your yoga retreat.
In our SPA Pavilion, everything is provided for you so that you can enjoy a professional massage, Ayurveda aroma therapy or spa treatments. Share your desires with our manager, and rest assured that we will fulfil them!
Want to discover a completely different, non-beach Sri Lanka? Do you want to see and photograph dozens of species of birds and wild animals? It’s quite simple. Just a half hour from our location you will find the spot for river and lake jungle safari boat tours.
The traditional national food of Sri Lanka is rice & curry. It may sound monotonous, but, in fact, you will find it encompasses several hundred varieties including seafood, fish and vegetable dishes. All of them are extremely tasty, healthy, and prepared according to ancient recipes, with local spices, based on knowledge of Ayurvedic secrets of healthy eating. Our chef, Sha, will be happy to teach you how to prepare them.
From September to May, whale and dolphin watching boats operate daily, sailing out to sea from the port of Mirissa. The most trusted tour operator is Rajah And The Whales.
On request we organize group deep-sea fishing trips for giant tuna or blue marlin!
