This Private Tea Estate Villa in  Weligama was built in 1912 by Simonmeru Gunathilaka, the romantic son of a wealthy plantation estates owner from the north of Sri Lanka, to win the heart of his young local bride. After many decades empty, the estate was re-discovered in 2010, overrun with jungle and near ruin. A labour of love, the new South Pacific owners, chose to work with local craftsmen, to restore the house back to its former opulent splendour, whilst adding their own eclectic design aesthetic. 

What to expect in this Vacation rental in Weligama, Sri Lanka?

Set in the lush plantation hills of Weligama, The Villa once more offers a serene oasis to relax and recharge, yet is within easy reach of the pristine southern beaches and the historic charm of Galle. This beautiful 5 bedroom villa on the hill has stunning views that extend over the jungle and paddy fields to the coast. Generous spaces house a multitude of breezy, quiet corners to escape and recharge. On first entering the house through its wide covered verandah, you walk into the palatial hallway lounge, with its towering 20m high barrel vault ceilings and a superb collection on Sri Lankan antique and contemporary collectables. Off the hallway lounge, is the enchanting Room of Curiosities, which is an eclectic place to curl up with a favourite book or partake in drinks and a hand of cards.

And whether it’s the sumptuous conversation pit poolside at The Folly, or the antique chaises dotted around the internal courtyard verandah, quiet escapes are many and varied.


From Colombo, the trip south to the residence is a relaxed 2-hour drive down the quiet inland Southern Expressway. Stunning Galle Fort is approximately thirty minutes away. Or take a day trip to Bentota which is only an hour away on the expressway.

The Villa is located high on a plantation hillside near the Southernmost tip of Sri Lanka, in a village area known as Welipitya, Weligama. One of the houses’s unique features is the easy accessibility it offers to quintessentially Sri Lankan experiences on the Southern coast of the island. Sri Lanka’s very best Southern beaches are close by; the pristine sands of Mirissa are about a ten-minute drive (whales), or just down the road is Weligama beach.

For simpler excursions, simply setting foot from the residence along the surrounding rice paddy and jungle pathways, allows a glimpse into the lives of our always welcoming neighbours and their amazing families, as well as the fascinating nearby local Buddhist temple.

“The Perfect Holiday for Family and Friends” – Date of stay: July 2019

“A perfect Gem. It was the perfect holiday for the family as well as for our friends.The villa had a WOW character and the children can’t get enough. We were greeted with the most hospitable and amazing staffs, incredible menu selection as well as the perfect ambience and greenery that surrounds the villa.

The staffs were extremely wonderful and such a joy to be with. All of them made all of our children enjoy their every moment in the villa; from climbing the coconut tree, to making cinnamons, visiting the temples, playing with them and much more. The kids definitely misses this place as well as everyone that’s there and we will definitely come back again. A BIG Thank you to everyone in the villa for making our family holiday spectacular and we hope to see you all soon!”

“Style and Grace” – Date of stay: March 2019

“As soon as you arrive at this fabulous property you know you are going to be very happy indeed. It’s an oasis of peace and tranquility, beautifully decorated with great style and renovated with old-school charm and a real sensitivity for the house’s history. The staff, under Denver’s expert management, are on hand to ensure that you’re properly looked after, and chef Lasitha cooked us the most exquisite Sri Lankan and Indian dishes throughout our week long stay. Just lying by the gorgeous pool is the perfect way to relax in this blissful setting. Highly recommended.”

“Absolute Perfection” – Date of stay: July 2018

“I stayed at this villa for 5 blissful nights in July 2018. This is the second time I’ve visitedthe villa. The Property is a beautifully restored tea plantation and is absolute perfection – luxury, service, history, well located, a sanctuary. Villa sleeps 12 in palatial luxury – huge bedrooms and bathrooms, beautifully appointed. It is an ideal base for touring the south of Sri Lanka.

Lasitha and the team looked after us beautifully – cooking amazing food and ensuring that our stay at the villa and our touring around Weligama and Galle was seamless. I will be back… I can’t recommend the villa more highly.”
