The swimming pool nestles in the sloping garden, the infinity edge matching with the ocean horizon. The 15m length is enough to give you a gentle workout and is plenty of space for the family to relax. The pool is not fenced so the safety of all is down to the responsibility of the adults and each other. A timber cabanas provides a shaded pool lounge at the end of the pool.
A beach is accessible from the house, through the cinnamon gate at the bottom of the garden. Take the steps down to the rocks for a wonderful isolated spot to sit and absorb the ocean song. The beach is accessible either across the rocks (be careful!) or via a pathway at the top of the headland – please ask the staff to show you.
there is a wide variety of bird and animal life in the garden, from the resident peacocks, monitor lizards to the Grey Langur with the jet black face and the cheeky Macaques who enjoy eating our garden fruit. You may be lucky to see porcupine, Giant Squirrels or Jungle Hares scampering across the garden.
The bird life is prolific with peacocks, sea eagles, the Ceylon Grey Hornbill, barbets and the noisy Green Billed Coucal. Books and binoculars are available in the house to check anything interesting you may see. Breakfast on the lounge terrace is a great place to watch the birds grab a fruit breakfast from the tree right outside.
Badminton or a kick around on the lawn.
Board games (monopoly, Scrabble and Cards are available for use)
Food is important to us and our menu reflects the best seasonal produce locally available. Sri Lankan dishes form the basis of our menu along with great salads, pasta and seafood.
Our seafood is bought fresh daily (as needed) and includes; tuna, snapper, Spanish mackerel, squid along with mussels and lobster which are collected and caught directly infront of the house (they are seasonally available, so please check with the staff).
Meals can be served in a variety of locations – just ask the staff – the courtyard – quiet, shady and peaceful – the terrace – beautiful ocean and pool views and lots of bird and wildlife in the early morning – the garden – a picnic under the shade of the trees overlooking the ocean or a loungey lunch by the poolside under the shelter of the cinnamon cabana.
A menu can be provided in advance if required.
