Guest Testimonial

The accommodation was first class in all the places we stayed from the Eco Lodges at Vil Uyana and the 98 Acres Resort to the colonial ambience of Kandy House and the Galle Fort Hotel and finally the unique Paradise Road Villa. In all locations the service was superb and the food excellent.

- AM, Hampshire



Located one and a half hours south of Colombo, an excellent choice for a beach holiday on the south west coast. Each room and suite is unique in style, decoration and layout. The rooms and suites are complete with king-sized beds dressed in fine linen and en-suite bathrooms with rain showers. In-room facilities include LCD TV screens with cable channels, mini-bar, electronic safety locker and tea/coffee making facilities. The villa was designed by the world renowned architect, the late Geoffrey Bawa. He was originally drawn to this unique property in the 1970s, known as the Mohotti Walauwa. Bawa was responsible for converting the dilapidated ancestral home into Sri Lanka's first boutique hotel and today the property continues to welcome a host of guests seeking privacy and discreet service on a beautiful beach. A single track railway runs past the bottom of the garden - fortunately most people find it adds to the charm of the property rather than being a disturbance.

Best time to be there

During our winter months, when the humidity is lower and the temperature more comfortable for sightseeing and exploration. However, the monsoon season of May to September should not be discounted for travel as the whole of Sri Lanka is bursting into lush greenery due to the rainfall showing you a side of this island not everyone sees.
