About the villa

Surrounded by rich paddy fields, tall palms and beautifully manicured lawns, Water lily is a magical place where peacocks are often spotted, alongside nature’s soundtrack of beautiful birdsong and distant temple chanting. The villa itself is stylish, modern and impeccably decorated, with accommodation laid out in a unique half moon shape. It consists of two adjoining buildings, with a veranda that stretches the length of the property, which is furnished for outdoor dining and relaxing. The sitting room is bright and cool, with high ceilings, colourful art and comfortable seating. Beyond the sitting room is the fully equipped and well-appointed working kitchen, where a wonderful chef prepares all meals - local or international - expect lots of delicious fresh fruit and vegetables from the villa’s garden.There’s an adjoining marble bathroom with a walk in shower, while the cosy and comfortable TV room shares access with the bathroom and offers multi cushioned sofas. Next door is the first bedroom, a large spacious teak floored twin with two single 4 poster beds and an en suite bathroom. The second bedroom is a lovely double with a safe fitted in the en suite bathroom.  Down a few steps is the third bedroom, and the second twin, housing two single beds and a small en suite bathroom.The final room is the master suite, which can either be accessed through the adjoining long walk in wardrobe or via its own veranda entrance; there is a king size four-poster bed with a large en suite bathroom featuring double basins, a safe and a bathtub. All of the bedrooms have air-conditioning, overhead fans and mosquito nets for maximum comfort.

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.
