Villa Kumara sits close to the surf breaks of Weligama on the South Sri Lankan coast and offers a peaceful escape for families (children must be 5 years of age) and friends alike.
Set over two acres of landscaped gardens the villa has three luxury en-suite rooms each with private pavilions, a walled garden with outdoor shower and a roll away bed for an extra little one. The modern open planned bathrooms are quite luxurious and feature twin vanities.
The villa kitchen is housed in a separate pavilion in the garden, opposite the main house, and meal ingredients are bought, prepared and cooked by the in-house chef who serves both Asian and Western cuisine.
In the main house facilities include a large open plan sitting and dining area where large floor to ceiling doors open out onto the gardens and flood the villa with natural light. Outside facilities include an inviting pool and spacious dining area.
Aside the pool sits a partially covered L-shaped seating area donned with plump cushions, spend afternoons here dipping in and out of the pool and retiring to the shade. Those looking to venture further take note as the beaches of Mirissa sit only a short tuk tuk ride away and make for a great day out (swimming here is seasonal). In the evenings, return to the villa and enjoy drinks in the lounge.
The quaint windows that open out to palm tree gardens really are picture perfect.
