Tangalle villa description

Ratnakara makes for an ideal place to base yourself for a South Coast trip. Local attractions include Dondra lighthouse, the blow holes at Tangalle, shopping at Galle, whale watching , fishing trips, tea plantation visits and temple visits. Further afield but still very doable in a day are the national parks of Sinharaja, Uda Walawe and Yalla.

Sinharaja National Park

About 2 hours drive from the house, this is a real Jungle experience. Dense forest keeps the sun off the ground, however the high humidity means you need to be reasonably fit for a guided trek that will take you up river to some waterfalls. A remarkable day out. Expect to meet Sir David Attenborough on route!


Uda Walawe National Park

About 2 hours drive from the house, leave early in the morning to be up there for 6 or 7 o’clock. You will be driven into the park by your guide in an open top 4x4 for a 2-3 hour trip. Getting close up to elephants is almost guaranteed. You will also see crocodiles, an array of different birds, and if you are lucky, leopards. The climate here is totally different to the coast. Don’t be fooled by the cooler temperature and low humidity, the sun is still hot so make sure you take a sun hat, sun screen and a bottle of water each.


Yalla National Park

A couple of hours to the East of Dondra, Yalla is another of Sri Lanka’s amazing National Parks that is well worth a visit…

                                        We stayed at Ratnakara for only 3 nights and wished it could have been longer! The villa is wonderful and charming on a grand scale. It sleeps 10 with enough space for privacy if you are travelling with friends or a group. As there was only the two of us we felt like royalty! With a huge pool – (60ft) or so, suspended off the side you get great views and can do laps! We were well looked after by the staff who were lovely. They gave us space but were attentive when needed. We felt spoilt having all our meals cooked for us and it being just the two of us, but nothing was too much trouble. There was still some landscaping going on around the villa as the villa is newly built, but that was starting to take shape and given a few more weeks will really add to the ‘jungle’ charm of the place. The upstairs lounge is the coolest part of the house as its all open. The breeze is lovely in the evening since the villa sits quite high. We would recommend anyone stay here if you fancy a bit of luxury, want a fabulous holiday and love the privacy of a villa as opposed to a hotel. The food is probably much better

                                        My girlfriend and I only spend a couple of nights in this amazing villa and had the entire place to ourselfs. This had definitely been the most luxurious stay in Sri Lanka and we couldn't help ourselfs to show all our friends the pictures of the villa and off course the infinity pool through facebook. The staff is great and the chef cooks amazing meals for you. Wassanta is an excellent host and really looks after you. This is one of those places where you can really relax and don't want to leave. We would love to stay here again.

                                        We have left paradise, our rag tag group, but we return to Doha happier, fatter and rich with memories of this slice of paradise. We are a crazy group of French, American & Lebanese expats, one and all, and your house and your staff made all of us feel were living a dream. Lit by a lighthouse & lightning bugs, beside a bay filled with fish and near a secret surf spot, this place will bring adventures and marvelous things to all who step inside, just as it did for us.

                                        We were fortunate to be the first guests to stay in this amazing property, which is spacious, well laid out with an great pool too. The staff are very attentive to your every need and nothing is too much trouble. Don't be put off by the 4 hr drive from Colombo its definitely worth it, if you are looking for a really relaxing and quiet break away from our action packed lives. Thoroughly recommended.

                                        If you want a quiet relaxing"away from it all" break I can thoroughly recommend spending your time at Ratnakara. This is a beautiful new build with a fabulous infinity pool which seems to take you right into the tree tops! It is spacious, very comfortable and well equipped with lots of room to spread and socialise...but also plenty of quiet and calm places to relax. A very friendly and attentive staff are on hand to cater for your every need- although there is also a lovely big well fitted kitchen too should you wish to cater for yourself! Ratnakara is situated within sight and sound of a small local beach which seems to be shared only with a few fishing boats. If you wish to travel further afield staff will arrange for a taxi or tuk-tuk to pick you up from the house and later from your destination back home.A lovely stay...I will be back!!

                                      Year Purchased: 2013

                                      About the owner: We live in Abu Dhabi in the UAE but fell in love with Sri Lanka whilst on holiday in 2010.

                                      Why the Owner Chose Tangalle:
                                      We wanted to build somthing that made you go 'wow' as you walked through the door, this was specifically in the design brief. Results so far have been breathtaking !

                                      The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                                      Because we are sited at +20m above the sea and only about 100m from the waters edge, you can still hear the sea very much in the background.
