About the villa

Positioned high on a hill with far reaching sea views, Cinammon House sits at the ocean’s edge surrounded by lash lawns and tall swaying palms. This superb, modern property was designed by famous architect Geoffrey Bawa and its unique, multi terraced living space has been created to enjoy one of the best vistas in southern Sri Lanka of the inviting Indian Ocean. The upper terrace has a dining level with a polished concrete table for twelve; the middle tier has two comfortable sofas and a huge bean bag chair, whilst the lower level is decked with further stylish seating and a coffee table. There are five bedrooms, three in the main house all with garden and ocean views and a further two towards the rear of the house accessed via a covered walkway.  All bedrooms are en suite and three have private tropical outdoor showers.

Gaze through the airy, open house to the extensive well-kept lawns festooned with coconut trees, and set in the lower level lies the spacious terrace. The fabulous pool has a shallow platform for relaxing, and a deep end for diving, alongside a poolside dining pavilion, a day bed and a barbecue. A private gate from the garden leads straight to the golden sands of Kudawella beach just 190m away; great for morning strolls or runs, seasonally swimming, and the wide sandy bay enjoys good surf break for beginners between January and April. A yoga pavilion perches on the top of the hill with inspiring easterly views across the garden and out to sea, while a treatment room inside the house is a tranquil space in which to enjoy a relaxing massage. The services of an excellent chef are included – with the cost of ingredients extra – who can prepare many Sri Lankan specialities as well as international cuisine. 

You can choose to be as relaxed or active as you choose. Eat our or surf at the lively bay of Hiriketiya, a short drive away. You can also visit Mulgirigala, a sacred Buddhist site inland from Tangalle, travel to Rekawa to observe nesting marine turtles at night and head into the nearby city of Matara to explore the two Dutch forts. Guest also enjoy on coastal cruises or whale/dolphin watching (seasonal), seeking out wildlife on a day safari to Udawalawe or Yala national parks. A half day trip to Galle is also recommended to explore the fort on foot or shop and dine. A unique and magnificent property. Early booking essential.

Important Information

The chef has designed a menu to showcase his talents with the best of Sri Lankan cuisine, local fresh produce and his experience. It is intended as an aid to a conversation about what you would like to eat Guests are invited to discuss their preferences with the chef and allow him to make suggestions also. A float system is operated to cover all food and non-alcoholic drinks expenses. 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 needed and will provide receipts and balance etc. Sri Lankan breakfast is highly recommended.  Although the chef knows how to source the best produce and get the best prices we do recommend that you accompany him on at least one shopping trip so that you become familiar with what is available and how much it costs (as it is often more expensive than you may think). It can also be fun. 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.
