This Private island in Weligama, was originally built in the 1920’s by the romantically named but self styled Count de Mauny-Talvande. The island with its neo-Palladian mansion has played host to kings, queens, presidents, prime ministers, aristocracy, writers and eccentrics, giving it a very colourful history, which guests can now share. This Private Island comprises 2 ½ acres of sheer tropical fantasy with nothing between it and the South Pole. Accommodation is provided for in 5 en-suite bedrooms, with spacious living areas, balconies, verandas, tropical gardens and a stunning infinity pool. A staff of 5 cater for your every need; in fact after arrival, guests frequently never leave the Island until their departure. Sri Lanka’s only privately owned island. The No.1 address in the Indian Ocean.
The sprawling octagonal house, with its cool white terrazzo floors and high wooden ceilings has 5 spacious en-suite bedrooms each with sea views. Light and airy living areas and shaded terraces & verandas provide many a secluded spot to sunbathe, paint or read. With its pavilion style house and wrap around verandas and terraces, Taprobane Island provides many open & airy living areas, with views across the Indian ocean. These are spacious enough to retain your privacy yet perfect for celebrations and gatherings.

A highlight of living on this villa is being able to experience sunset cocktails or dining in so many amazing locations overlooking the Indian Ocean. Whether it’s cocktail hour, lunch time or dinner time, our staff will ensure that each location is memorable & unique.
Due to the crossing to the island is by foot it is not really suitable for children under 10 Years old. For older children there are lots of activities to enjoy such as: body boarding and learning to surf on Weligama beach, which is just opposite; taking a boat from Unawatuna and snorkelling on the reefs off Rumassala. Parents must at all times be responsible of the children.
