The villa is located at the southernmost point of the island, near the town of Weligama, on its own picturesque beach – Jungle Beach. Our beach is considered the cleanest and most beautiful in the area. You can see for yourself as the beach has its own Instagram page #JungleBeachWeligama. We are also an excellent surf spot!
You can easily reach us on the express highway. We are located 2.5 hours from Colombo Bandaranaike Airport.
All significant sights on the southern part of the island are within a half hour of us. Foremost, of course, is the city-fort of Galle. Built in the 16th century, Galle is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, recognized as the best example of a fortified city built by Europeans in South and South-East Asia. Additionally, this cozy colonial town has many shops and restaurants for you to enjoy. We will gladly advise you as to which ones are worth a visit.
And of course we are surrounded by amazing surf spots, from the beach breaks of Weligama to reefs such as Fishermans, Rams and Lazy Lefts!
Sri Lanka is the country of eternal summer, where the warm waters of the Indian Ocean wash the island all year round.
The seasons here do not vary a great deal. The water and air temperatures stay constant, between 26-30 degrees. In May and June, fantastically picturesque tropical downpours occur once a day. During the remaining months it is sunny in the afternoon and stunning at night.
A stones throw away you’ll find Weligama beach with the very picturesque Taprobane Island and a variety of restaurants and shops.
We are also blessed with blue whales swimming along our shores. These, the largest animal on the planet, are easy to see. Boats go out daily from the port of Mirissa!
If you come with children, they will be delighted by a visit to the sea turtle nursery.
Connoisseurs of Ceylon tea and spices will be pleased with the world-famous lowland plantations found nearby.
Tireless spiritual seekers will be attracted to our Buddhist temples, with their thousand-year history, brightly dressed monks, as well as the strict and exotic rituals and practices of Theravada Buddhism.
It’s roughtly a two hour drive from the international airpor t and we’re happy to help with finding a suitable vehicle.
There are trains along the coast from Colombo to Matara which are very scenic, but a little slow!
