The jewel of the bay...

Welcome to Eraeliya Villas & Gardens

Dear guests,

I am glad to welcome you to Eraeliya Villas & Gardens, Weligama, our jewel of the bay. I created this space as a collection of six uniquely designed villas, where I expressed all my love for palladian architecture, interior design, art, gardening, slow lifestyle, travel and immersion in different cultures.

Everything at Eraeliya Villas & Gardens is designed to make you feel like you are straight from a movie scene. All rooms are full of artworks and handcrafted pieces. Lush tropical gardens, infinity pool and scenic beach at sunset will take your heart away. And I would love to share this truly fabulous ambience with my guests.

Please make yourself at home.

With love and care,
The curator

Things to do


Things To Do

In & Around Eraeliya

Are you looking for the ideal mix of relaxation and physical activity? Our goal is to make sure you leave Eraeliya Villas & Gardens with greater mental, spiritual and physical well-being. 

We offer yoga classes (on request) and there is an excellent surf break waiting right in front of your window. We also have our own in house massage therapist, who combines health science and traditional practices from around the world. Of course there are many other things to do as well: You can enjoy snorkeling, take part in our culinary classes or go on a sightseeing trip in the area.


Our food philosophy

We are convinced that a healthy and tasty meal is the foundation of our happiness. And of course there is nothing better than enjoying a delicious meal with an ocean view. We serve locally sourced and organic food, thoughtfully prepared. Whether you prefer vegan options or heartier wholesome meals – you will never leave the table hungry.

Sri Lanka’s most iconic dish is rice & curry. Try our unique interpretation of this all time favourite – “The Eraeliya Curry Bowl”. It comes with fresh vegetables, red rice and your choice of prawns, chicken or tofu – you will love it just as much as we do.
