Property description

Siyambala House is a luxury villa overlooking the serene 43-acre Koggala Lake on two sides, just 15 minutes' walk to one of the World's Most Beautiful Beaches, Koggala Beach, and 20 minutes' drive to Galle Fort. It can accommodate 10 adults in great comfort.

With its high-vaulted ceilings, traditional freezes over the windows and doors and inlaid floors, Siyambala House can best be described as a modern take on the Sri Lankan vernacular. It is light, airy and, at more than 4,000 sq ft, very spacious. The covered terrace benefits from a wonderfully calming breeze from the water, providing the perfect place to eat, take in the views, socialise, or doze. There are five large air-conditioned bedrooms: four doubles and one twin; two on the second floor and three downstairs. Three bedrooms have en suite bathrooms.

Add to this the spectacular 15-metre infinity pool and the comfort of the huge atrium, and you have all the ingredients in place for a tropical holiday to remember.


Tours: Why not visit Sri Lanka’s myriad delights (such as Colombo, the ancient capitals, religious sites, the tea country, Kandy, a Yala safari, etc) before or after you relax at Siyambala? Our manager, Nalaka, who is a government-registered tour guide, can provide you with the perfect tour, regardless of your time or budget.

Events: Please contact us if you would like Siyambala House to host a special event for you: a reunion, wedding, anniversary celebration, etc.. We'd be delighted to take care of all arrangements!
