Eraeliya Villas and Gardens

Eraeliya Villas & Gardens - your sanctuary of luxury nestled in Weligama Bay.

Explore six uniquely designed villas blending Palladian architecture with artistic flair. Immerse yourself in tropical elegance, where each room is adorned with handcrafted pieces and offers breathtaking views.

FOUR SUITES IN VILLA BAWANA

Alaya Suite

If you’re seeking the essence of Pan-Asian modern tropical style, we highly recommend the Alaya Suite named ‘love’ in Sinhalese.  Located just steps from the infinity pool, this room boasts incredibly comfortable handcrafted furniture made in Sri Lankan workshops. Indulge in the luxurious rain shower and discover handcrafted details in every corner, promising a delightful surprise at every turn.

Diviya Suite

Similar to its neighboring Alaya Suite, the Diviya Suite also embodies the design principles of modern tropical style. Named after “heaven” in Sinhalese, you’ll understand why when you wake up in your cozy bed to the soothing sound of the waves. Every detail in the room is handcrafted and thoughtfully selected, ensuring a heavenly experience during your stay.

Ramaya Suite

Located on the first floor of Villa Bawana, the Ramaya Suite offers a blend of colonial chic, luxury, and splendor. Named after “paradise” in Sinhalese, this unique suite promises a delightful experience. Spoil yourself in the magnificent marble bath carved from a single solid rock and enjoy the spacious canopy bed for an indulgent stay.

Samaya Suite

If you’re in search of the Pan-Asian modern tropical style, we highly recommend the Samaya Suite, named “peace” in Sinhalese. Located in the first floor of Villa Bawana, this room features handcrafted furniture made in Sri Lankan workshops, offering unparalleled comfort. Spoil yourself in the magnificent bath tub carved from a single solid rock and enjoy the spacious canopy bed for an indulgent stay.

OTHER VILLAS

Ambalama Pavilion

The Ambalama Pavilion is meticulously designed to seamlessly blend in with its natural surroundings. Transparent walls create an illusion of antique furniture and a double canopy bed nestled within an enchanted garden. Embrace the unique experience of showering outdoors year-round in the tropics, as the bathroom is situated beneath the open sky. Please note that while the pavilion is enclosed by the garden, its proximity to the main gate and driveway may not be ideal for light sleepers.

Beach Hut Muhudu Bella

The Beach Hut Muhudu Bella is positioned apart from other spaces, nearest to the ocean, just a few meters from the sandy Jungle Beach. Exiting through the expansive glass bedroom door onto the secluded wooden terrace, you can practically feel the salty spray on your face. Rarely will you encounter a chalet with a floor plan utilizing the golden Fibonacci spiral. Access the bathroom by descending from the circular bedroom via a swirling stairway. As the closest villa to the beach, you may hear sounds from the shore.

Garden House Nelum

Our luxurious Garden House Nelum offers a delightful surprise: a massive bathtub crafted from a single piece of marble, right within the bedroom. The remainder of the space is divided into a cozy living room with a dining table, and a chill-out area featuring a TV and a plush sofa that effortlessly converts into a bed.

Villa Walauwa

Carefully restored from an ancient Sri Lankan village home, Villa Walauwa boasts a fully equipped kitchen, a living room furnished with a large, plush sofa, TV, and every imaginable comfort. Life at Villa Walauwa centers around the veranda, overlooking the Indian Ocean. Here, discover an expansive dining table seating twelve guests, along with beautifully upholstered furniture catering to every taste. The soothing shade and coolness of the tree canopy during the day, and the breathtaking colors of the sunset in the evening, will linger in your dreams long after your departure.

LOFTS

Loft House

We refer to it as the “loft,” adorned with contemporary Asian loft elements. Featuring classical colonial loft architecture with high ceilings and iron structures, seamlessly blended with mid-century furniture and art. This space houses two loft-style suites: Ocean Loft and Garden Loft. Both suites offer a shared terrace, spacious private garden, and outdoor seating area with ocean views.

Ocean Loft

The Ocean Loft is an ideal haven for digital nomads and remote workers alike. Featuring two distinct living spaces—a main room and an attic with a king-size bed—it also offers a beautifully appointed writing desk for comfortable work sessions.

Garden Loft

The Garden Loft, our second room in the Loft House, features a spacious corner king-size bed, TV, and charming bathroom, providing a cozy retreat for relaxation. Opening onto a lush tropical garden, the house offers a serene ambiance to unwind and indulge in tranquility. Please note that reservations are available only for both the Ocean Loft and Garden Loft together.
