Villa Bawana – Our magnificent two-story colonial style villa.
The living area, with its high ceilings, includes a dining room, a library and a poker table. Inside the villa, time freezes as you immerse yourself in the atmosphere of colonial Sri Lanka – luxurious and unhurried. We have placed most of our personal collection of art and antiques, which have been collected from all over Asia, inside Villa Bawana. The central passage-portal of the villa leads to the infinity pool. The pool’s water level visually blends with the ocean on the horizon, and the effect is really cool!
On each floor we have two spacious bedrooms with huge terraces and panoramic French windows overlooking the garden and the ocean. All spaces in the villa are lively and each room has its own Sinhala name.
If the Pan-Asian modern tropical style is what you are looking for, with the pool a stone’s throw away from the bedroom, then we recommend staying in either the Diviya room, meaning “heaven” in Singhalese, or the Alaya room, which means “love.” All the furniture is incredibly comfy and was made by hand in workshops in Sri Lanka, according to my sketches.
