About the villa

Allamanda is a perfectly secluded rural retreat, set in grounds of 20 acres with incredible views over the Sri Lankan countryside; Adams Peak to the north and the river Gin to the south. With over 200 years of architectural history, it is no surprise this property is rather famous – developed by renowned architect Kerry Hill over the last 30 years– its design is simply stunning and truly unique. The house is set across three spacious standalone buildings, centred around the original plantation house that was built in 1820. Due to the accommodation being split across a collection of building,  it’s not a property we recommend for parties with small children. There are five impressive bedrooms, all of which are en suite with a mixture of mountain and jungle views, a number of large living areas and a wonderful dining pavilion designed to seat 20 guests, so it’s perfect for entertaining. The huge 19m long pool is another outdoor highlight at this property, while the kitchen is where the fabulous cook prepares all of our guests delicious meals. While the house feels utterly private and away from it all, UNESCO listed Galle Fort is just 7.5km away for excellent shopping and restaurants, plus the stunning white sand beaches of the south coast are a short drive away.

Important Information

A cash float system is operated to cover all food and non-alcoholic drinks expenses and the chef will use this money to only buy the ingredients to make your drinks and meals as well as the transport to get them. He will need a float and ask for a top-up when this runs out. He will provide you with receipts and balance etc. The kitchen is designed for a private house and therefore guests are asked to only  choose one dish/meal per your party. Sri Lankan breakfast is highly recommended and please note 24 hours notice is required to make it. Although the chef knows how to source the best produce and get the best prices guests are recommended to accompany him on at least one shopping trip so that you become familiar with what is available and local costs. It can also be fun. Guest are also recommended to inform Sam of any allergies or special dietary requirements. A menu is available on request.

About Sri Lanka

Average weather

Sri Lanka is one of those places that seems to be on everyone's bucket list, and it sure packs a punch for an island that’s just over a quarter of the size of the UK. From the splendour of roaming wild elephants across the island’s National Parks, to blissful sandy beaches that line the coast, a Sri Lanka holiday has the power to excite a vast range of travellers. Head inland to tiers of lush green tea plantations, trek in the rainforest discovering the rich flora and fauna, or just sit back and enjoy the spectacular view on an epic train journey.
