Resorts and villas are set in a perfect alignment for those who want to spend their time in leisure. Our team searching for exotic villas and heritage resorts has come up with a compact list. By picking and personally travelling to every single place, they have composed the list just to make your holidays more memorable:
MANIUMPATHY IN COLOMBO– Incredibly built and majestically maintained, Colombo’s most stately and historic home is tucked away in one of the posh neighborhoods. The property belonged to a family from Jaffna from five generations but now it is operating as one of capital’s most stunning boutique hotels. With elegant interiors, gorgeous inner courtyard, antique-studded rooms and swimming pool, you are guaranteed to have the best time of your life here.
THE LAST HOUSE IN TANGELLE– The Last House, which was designed by Geoffrey Bawa was his last residence before his death in 2003. Located in the secluded corner of Sri Lankan coast, it’s a distinct, airy and spacious five-room heritage hotel. The villa is set in gorgeous bird and squirrel-filled tropical gardens with its own combined private beach and stunning coastlines. For those who aren’t afraid to shed money, it’s a fabulous way to spend holidays.
THE FORT BAZAAR IN GALLE FORT– This one is the latest addition to the UNESCO World Heritage Galle Fort which is located on the historic Church Street. As the name indicates, it is a place to worship which includes the historic 18th century Dutch Reformed Church. The Fort Bazaar was tastefully designed and decorated from the ruins in an 18th century townhouse.
GALLE FACE HOTEL- Since the reopening of its North Wing, following a renovation with flawlessly designed interiors, coinciding with a boom in tourism to Sri Lanka after three decades of civil war the Galle Face hotel is positively buzzing. And if you couldn’t manage to stay in one of the most classic and oldest colonial-era hotels, you must visit it to have a meal or drink over here to sit back and savor the sound of waves.
If you are staying in Colombo then you must stay in one of the colonial-era villa or a heritage property. Having a luxury vacation is something which everyone look forward to.
