Property 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…

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

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 Matara, Sri Lanka:
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.
