What’s inside this US$800 – US$ 1500/night Beach house in Dikwella?

Drone View saffron house pool

The Luxury beach house is set around a central paved courtyard, about 20 metres above sea level. The courtyard is flanked on two sides by a large covered veranda with an adjoining kitchen, an open veranda for sunbathing and a 6 x 10 metre swimming pool. The pool’s infinity edge faces directly south through the coconut trees and over the surf to the horizon. The main covered veranda is the centre of the house with a dining area by the Koi fish pond and large sofas for relaxing at the south end, overlooking the terrace, the pool and the ocean beyond.

The bedrooms are cool and airy, with polished concrete floors and contemporary furniture, hand-built from local teak and mango. Thick 12″ mattresses and fine linen lie on striking, under-lit polished concrete beds topped with huge mosquito nets. Each room has a selection of thick white towels, coloured beach towels and lots of flowers.

The Dikwella Beach house has broadband Wi-Fi and receives a 3G signal. All bedrooms have mosquito nets, fans and air conditioning. There is a good quality amplifier and wall speakers on the veranda for iPods etc. with Bluetooth connectivity.


Directly ahead, across 5,000 miles of uninterrupted water, lies the coast of Antarctica. We have seen blue whales passing just a few hundred meters from the bottom of the garden. Few places on earth offer such an opportunity. This Villa offers fantastic beaches a short walk away. A paradise for surfers and beach lovers.

CLOSEST BEACH: This property is beachfront.
CLOSEST SURFING BEACH: 400 mts (Hiriketiya beach).
CLOSEST SEASONALLY SAFE SWIMMABLE BEACH: 400 metres walk (Hiriketiya beach) or 10 minutes walk (Dikwella Beach).

When you tire of watching the surf break over the rocks at the bottom of the garden, there are many lovely beaches on this stretch of coast. Three stand out as special, two of which are just a few minutes walks. The closest is Hiriketiya Bay, sometimes known as Horseshoe Bay 250 metres down the lane to the east. This is idyllic, usually deserted, and offers safe swimming. It also has a useful, year-round surf break. The beach curves 450 metres from end to end, although the neck of the bay is only 180 metres wide; a near-perfect horseshoe. Some mornings it is as still as a pond.

400 metres to the west of the house is Dikwella beach, a beautiful 2 km stretch. It can see some impressive waves, although the water is usually calm at this end of the beach; it is good for bodyboarding. Dikwella Beach Resort lies at the far end and offers various water sports, including diving excursions. Further afield, are the beaches of Mawella, about 5 Kms to the east, which is stunning, pristine and very long. It is usually deserted and has several beach restaurants. It has larger waves at the far end and calm water at the western end.


4 bedrooms of this villa near Tangalle can accommodate 8 Guests

  • Bedrooms air-con and ensuite

The house has 4 main double bedrooms, three of which are set around a courtyard, with the fourth bedroom closer to the sea. 

The Master bedrooms: The two largest Master bedrooms are set on the north side of the courtyard, each with large adjoining bathrooms partially open to the sky. Both of these rooms face the courtyard and they also look onto separate small gardens of their own.

The Courtyard bedroom: This smaller bedroom lies on the west side of the courtyard and has wonderful elevated views across its own small private garden and lawn to the sea. Behind the bedroom is a simple, stylish bathroom.

The Sea bedroom: This bedroom lies much closer to the sea and provides more privacy. A similar size to the Courtyard bedroom, it is also bright and airy, with the whole of the south end of the room opening onto its own private terrace, just 30 metres from the sea and the sound of the surf.

Ensuite Double bedroom Saffron house


The villa has five full-time staff. Christobel (Chris) Claessen manages the villa and has been recently joined by Anne, her niece. Paul looks after the pool, koi pond and shares the housekeeping with Shriyani. Paul is also a qualified masseur and Vishwa does a great job in the garden. The wonderful staff are very experienced, a mine of information and will make every effort to make your stay a memorable one.

The villa grows some of what you will eat when staying with them. From fresh herbs, rocket, spinach and tomatoes to mangos, jams, chillies and chutneys. Chef is careful to pick the best produce from the market if they don’t grow it themselves and always buy their fish and seafood locally. The whole focus is on the freshest ingredients.

For breakfast; fresh fruits, fresh buffalo curd, freshly baked bread and croissants, local jams, eggs (anyway), bacon, hoppers, pol sambol, local tea, espresso, etc. In other words, whatever you want. The villa treats lunch and dinner with the same flexibility.

Chris has a wide repertoire in the kitchen, from traditional Sri Lankan cuisine to other Asian and western dishes. You can discuss with her your menu requirements when you arrive. She will also prepare picnic breakfasts and/or lunches if you plan a day trip.


Although this southeast coastline is still comparatively undeveloped, things are changing fast. There are a handful of excellent restaurants between Dikwella and Tangalle, some with amazing sunset views. And lots of the action is now down the lane on Hiriketiya Bay. Villa will update you with the latest news and reviews when you arrive.

Payment is on an ‘ingredients only’ basis + transport. For more information on how it works, read more about Villa Meal Policy in Sri Lanka.

“Everything we wanted” – Date of stay: March 2019

“When you approach the beach House, a few questions might come into your mind. Once through the gates, they disappear. The villa is in a superb position, overlooking the sea – although the coastline is rocky at the bottom of the garden, so there is no swimming (but there are good beaches within walking distance). We were greeted by a team of smiling staff, who throughout the holiday could not have been more helpful. We were a family group, with adult children and some of their friends. I am not sure that the House would work with young children.

The villa is built around an eating and seating area and a swimming pool. The four double bedrooms are separate from the main house. They are very comfortable and all are air-conditioned. A couple of the bathrooms are partly open to the elements, which provides the opportunity to observe some of the wildlife while showering. There are mosquito nets around the beds, although we did not find there was a mossie problem. The infinity swimming pool is a good size and depth (too deep for young children), and has wonderful views over the garden towards the sea.

The best for last – fantastic food. We enjoyed a range of hugely enjoyable locally-based meals. Egg hoppers, waffles and fresh fruit at breakfast. Lighter lunches (tuna tartar was the highlight for us) and more substantial dinners. We talked through the menu for the next day every evening. We has quite a few nicely spiced curries – not too potent, I should add. A delivery of wine can be arranged before your stay – we ordered some decent white Burgundy and an Italian red.

All in all, this luxury beach house is a wonderful place to stay and reasonably situated for some interesting days trips. It compares very favourably to some of the better Italian villas we have stayed in. We were superbly looked after by the staff, to whom nothing was too much trouble. One of the team is an expert masseur, something that proved very popular. We came home thoroughly relaxed after a ten-day stay.”

“Place of Paradise”– Date of stay: November 2018

“The most wonderful three days set in the most idyllic spot. Our meals were exquisite made by the wonderful Chris, ( we were practically rolling out of the villa by the end of the stay from the sheer quantity of food). In the daytime, we managed to tear ourselves away from the pool and onto the beautiful Hiriketiya Beach, only 5 minutes away, where we delighted in the great surf and delicious cocktails. Our rooms were very comfortable and had very generously sized bathrooms. The evenings at the villa were beautiful overlooking large palm trees and the deep Indian Ocean beyond. Thank you Chris and Paul for your generosity!”
