The journey from Colombo’s international airport will take about four-and-three quarter hours or consider taking the Air Taxi and flying into Koggala lake.

This iconic villa was designed by Sri Lanka’s architecture guru, the late Geoffrey Bawa who has ensured that breathtaking views of Weligama Bay are visible from every corner. It opened again after a complete refurbishment in late 2010 to welcome those who wish to spend a peaceful and relaxing holiday in the deep south.
