Eraeliya Villas and Gardens

We serve soul food - fresh, local and healthy.

We firmly believe in the significant impact of food on our mental and physical well-being.
Whether you’re returning from a lengthy surf session and need to replenish your energy stores, seeking a light snack, or craving a delightful dinner, we’ve got you covered!

Our Food Philosophy

All our food is organic, locally sourced, and hasn’t traveled thousands of miles to get here. We delight in experimenting with the island’s superfoods, inviting you to experience them through sight, smell, and taste.

Our diverse menu caters to every palate, featuring signature dishes like Tuna steak, a variety of fresh fish, and numerous vegan options. Sit back, relax, and savor every bite of your meal.

Complimentary breakfast is included and served on your private terrace or at the main villa, Bawana, from 8 am to 12 pm.
