See our selecton of sample itineraries which feature Red Cliffs

Red Cliff is a pavilion style villa on the south coast of Sri Lanka with breath-taking views of Weligama Bay. Designed by renowned architect Geoffrey Bawa the minimalist villa is reached via a narrow track that opens up to a grove of swaying coconut palms.

The villas three bedrooms are spread out over two levels, on the upper sits the Family Room which boasts an open air shower and a small lounge with sea views. On the lower level sits the remaining two rooms, both with en-suite bathrooms. Whilst one features a large living space the second has a private garden and in all, a refreshing ocean breeze drifts through the open windows.

On the ground floor sits the living and dining area and, in the true Geoffrey Bawa style of blurring the boundaries between the inside and out, the floor opens out to the gardens. Enjoy fresh Sri Lankan dishes at the dining table (designed by Bawa himself) as the sun sets over the ocean.

In the far corner of the garden sits a small pool that packs an impressive view of the Indian Ocean, a garden terrace great for sundowners and, at the gardens edge, a set of steep steps down to the soft sand beach.
