Possibly the most stunning views from a private villa on the whole island and steeped in history. Designed by the late great SL architect, Geoffrey Bawa and now taking its first steps into the holiday rental market the views overlooking the vast Welligama Bay are unrivaled.
The house “was designed as a weekend retreat high on the red cliffs which frame the eastern end of Weligama Bay. The visitor climbs a narrow track from the busy main road and after a final twist discovers a breathtaking view across the bay framed by a grove of swaying coconut palms. Closer inspection reveals that the coconut trunks are harbouring a platoon of black columns and that a thin horizontal roof is floating amongst their fronds. A simple pleasure pavilion stands on a stepped plinth facing towards the place of the setting sun: a house stripped to its bare essentials.”
