Property description

We are 10 years on HomeAway!

Eraeliya Villas and Gardens delivers a unique Sri Lankan holiday experience by offering a collection of villas and suites that have been specially designed to suit families, couples and groups. Unmatched in terms of luxury, style and comfort, our five individually designed freestanding villas tastefully blend local and Asian architectural styles with a fresh and contemporary interior design.

Eraeliya is a haven of peace and tranquility. Our lush palm-shaded garden borders a sandy stretch of beach washed by the Indian Ocean, and is home to a dazzling array of tropical wildlife including monkeys, monitor lizards, mongoose and birds. Eraeliya is the perfect destination for relaxation, meditation and inspiration, and is a stunning venue for a wedding or event.

Eraeliya Villas and Gardens is situated near Weligama, on the island’s southern tip. The hotel is located two hours from Colombo and approximately 45 minutes’ drive from the historic UNESCO World Heritage Site of Galle Fort.

Highlights:
- Panoramic views of the Indian Ocean
- A secluded tropical garden with fruit trees and exotic shrubs
- A large infinity-edged swimming pool
- A collection of luxurious villas and suites whose sumptuous ensuite bathrooms have bathtubs, walk-in showers and double vanity units
- Innovative, freshly prepared western and Sri Lankan cuisine
- A staff team dedicated to pampering you and making you feel at home
- A beautiful seaside setting for intimate weddings and special events
- A sandy beach with swimming, surfing and snorkelling nearby
- A relaxing spa for massages as well as beach yoga sessions
- A concierge service for activities, experiences and local tours
- Complimentary Wi-Fi in all rooms and villas
- Art exhibitions and annual ‘Artist in Residence’ programmes

Facilities & experiences
Our villas are located mere footsteps from a near-deserted stretch of sandy beach and the warm lapping waves of the Indian Ocean. The beach offers swimming in season and the offshore coral reefs are excellent for snorkelling.

Our hotel provides a wealth of facilities, including an infinity-edged swimming pool, living areas and lush gardens for dining and relaxing. Our kitchen team prepares delicious international and traditional Sri Lankan dishes to be enjoyed wherever you like – in your villa, on your villa’s private veranda, or perhaps in the garden under the swaying coconut palms and twinkling stars.

Local experiences include surfing, fishing and sailing, as well as spa therapies, beach yoga, revitalising massages and cooking classes. We also organise excursions to some of Sri Lanka's stunning natural and cultural attractions, which may include shopping and sightseeing trips to Galle Fort, or a day trip in search of elephants and leopards in Udawalawe or Yala national parks. Other local highlights include visits to tea, cinnamon and spice plantations.

Villas
Eraeliya’s nine bedrooms are set between five freestanding villas with their own unique character. Bedrooms are individually designed and furnished with antiques from across Asia along with a collection of mod cons including flat screen TVs, electric safes, free WiFi, luxurious toiletries and tea/coffee making facilities. Ensuite bathrooms are finished in smooth cement or terrazzo, and feature rain showers, twin sinks and some also have freestanding tubs. All bedrooms except for Villa Ambalama are equipped with air conditioners.

Villa Bawana
Villa Bawana is a magnificent two-storey contemporary-designed four-bedroom villa. Offering superlative luxuries, chic styling and superb views, Villa Bawana features a magnificent colonial-style living area and four luxurious palatial suites, located in pairs on the ground and first floors, with sea views and private verandas overlooking the hotel’s large infinity pool. Each suite bears a Sinhala name that underpins the essence of their exquisite design.
The high-ceilinged living area features a library, a grand piano and a poker table – all integrated into a luxurious space decorated with original Asian artwork and antiques. A central passageway leads through the villa to the infinity pool and spacious pool deck offering views of the garden and sea.
Families and groups may book Villa Bawana on an exclusive basis or each of the suites, Diviya, Alaya, Samaya and Ramaya, may be booked individually.

Samaya & Ramaya
On the first-floor of Villa Bawana are two uniquely designed suites, Samaya (Peace) and Ramaya (Paradise). Offering every possible comfort and luxury, these suites boast superb panoramic views of the Indian Ocean.
Both suites are designed in a contemporary colonial style, and feature antique king-size beds, marble bathtubs and walk-in rain showers. French windows to the front of the suites open onto a private furnished balcony.

Diviya & Alaya
Individually furnished Diviya (Heaven) and Alaya (Love) suites are located on the ground floor of luxurious Villa Bawana, mere footsteps from the hotel’s infinity swimming pool and lush tropical garden.
Designed in a contemporary tropical style, these spacious suites have king-size beds, large walk-in rain showers and double vanity units. They open directly onto the pool terrace, furnished for relaxing and private dining.

Villa Walauwa
A walauwa is a traditional Sri Lankan house, and this colourful two-bedroom villa is a stylish renovation of an existing home that once stood on the property. Perfectly in keeping with its history, the villa is designed in a typical Sri Lankan style yet is seamlessly equipped with twentieth century luxuries.
The villa’s bedrooms have either a king or a queen sized bed and ensuite bathrooms, and the cosy sofas in the lounge face a flat screen TV. The villa has a fully equipped kitchen and a large front terrace for living and dining with superb sea views that beautifully encapsulate the ideal tropical lifestyle.
Villa Walauwa is the perfect family escape, promising privacy, independence and spaciousness with the benefit of first-class hotel services and facilities.

Villa Nelum
Villa Nelum is a charming colonial-style, one-bedroom villa ideal for couples, honeymooners or a family as a sofa can be converted into an extra bed.
This individually styled villa comprises a living room and a bedroom with a low-slung queen-size bed and an open plan bathroom featuring a gorgeous freestanding tub made from a single piece of marble. The design of Villa Nelum blends Sri Lankan culture with modern style and luxurious comfort.
The villa opens onto our lush tropical garden and is a short walk away from our sandy beach making this the perfect suite for creativity and rejuvenation.

Villa Muhudu Bella
Villa Muhudu Bella is a wonderfully quirky colonial-style, one-bedroom chalet tucked just above the sandy beach. Secluded and wonderfully private, this intimate villa is an inspiring choice for honeymooners or romancing couples.
The villa’s geometry is fascinating. The bedroom (with a queen-size bed) and dressing room occupy a circular space with a large glass door leading to an veranda that offers glorious panoramas of the Indian Ocean and the tropical garden where hibiscus plants blossom year round. To add to its uniqueness, a gently spiraling staircase mirroring a seashell leads from the bedroom and curves its way down into a contemporary bathroom with shower.
As is the case with all of our villas, Villa Muhudu Bella offers a secluded space for creativity, yoga, meditation, or simple relaxation, right beside the sea.

Villa Ambalama
Villa Ambalama is our newest one-bedroom villa, and its concept is absolutely unique to Eraeliya. An ambalama is a traditional Sri Lankan resting place, and this special space has been designed to completely immerse its occupants in Sri Lanka’s tropical lifestyle and unify them with nature.
The villa has a high roof and open ventilation strips to the sides that allow natural breezes to infiltrate and cool. Instead of air conditioning, the villa is equipped with ceiling fans. The villa’s glass walls allow light to flood in, however curtains can be drawn for privacy. The villa is furnished with eye-catching furniture, and a stunning Jaffna antique carved doorway leads into an outdoor garden bathroom designed for showering under the stars.
The antiquarian four-poster double bed with mosquito net, desk, sofa and armchair create an atmosphere of homeliness yet you’ll find no TV here. This villa is perfect for creative minds and those in search of pure inspiration.
