Shower under a Frangipani tree, luxuriate in a cinnamon-walled spa or stroll down the hill to the beach. Overlooking a pristine crescent-shaped beach, the house offers four en-suite bedrooms, an Ayurvedic spa and an infinity pool with sweeping sea views. The design blends a simple tropical aesthetic with modern luxury. The five full-time staff includes a chef/housekeeper, steward, maid, gardener and night security. The house is located in a cashew grove just outside the fishing village of Tangalle and close to nature reserves and temples.
‘One must be absolutely modern,’ wrote the poet Rimbaud, and in this villa you find a new conception of the Good Life: simple and visionary in its clarity. Designed to be integrated completely into its environment, it contains nothing superfluous, built from only necessary forms, almost more a fortuitous configuration of materials in nature than a manmade structure — something found. Walk through the rooms: without knowing it, you move from inside to outside, from outside to inside. Walk down to the white-sand beach and help a group of fishermen pull in a net of shining silver fish; afterwards, relax for a massage in the Ayurvedic spa, or swim in the pool where an infinite perspective looks out over the Indian Ocean, framed by palm trees filled with parrots and monkeys.
If you are dreaming of adventures further afield, pilot a flat-bottomed punt through a bird sanctuary in a mangrove lagoon; visit a preserve home to herds of elephants; or bathe in a nearby river and enjoy a picnic lunch wrapped in a banana leaf. When you return, fishermen have brought just-caught lobsters to the doorstep. Be silent, drink the milk from an orange coconut, and listen to the peacocks’ melancholy cry. And then, at sunset, the landscape dissolves into pure form, and you dissolve with it.
CLOSEST BEACH: This property is 50 metres approx from the beach through a small path. The beach is a calm bay and one of the best beaches for swimming and body boarding. There are only few homes on the beach, so nearly empty.
CLOSEST SURFING BEACH: Unakuruwa Beach, 5 mins tuk tuk ride approximately. Alternatively, Hiriketiya Beach, 15 mins tuk tuk ride.
CLOSEST SEASONALLY SAFE SWIMMABLE BEACH: The beach in front of the property (50 metres approx) is one of the best beaches for swimming and body boarding in the area.
4 Bedrooms with en suite bathrooms.
SEA ROOMS (Double): Lie in bed and watch waves crash on the beach below or soak in the tub and gaze at the stars above. From the Sea Suite’s balcony, enjoy views of the large tropical garden and the Indian Ocean.
COURTYARD ROOM (Double): The courtyard suite opens into its own secluded garden — with a cashew tree, ginger flowers and a pond planted with night-blooming Manel lilies. The room has sea views and its own deck and Air Conditioning. The shower is outdoor, open to the sky and shaded by a frangipani tree.
POOL ROOM (Double- Upper floor): The Pool Suite offers complete privacy from the rest of the house. It has high ceilings, sea views and opens onto a private deck and tropical garden. From the shower there are tantalising glimpses of a thin blue sliver of sea. This room is Air Conditioned.
