Step inside, however, and be amazed by the villa’s luxuriant amount of space. Comprising two buildings connected by an inner palm-spiked courtyard garden, the villa’s thick walls, archways and ornate plasterwork are reminiscent of the Dutch in Ceylon whilst period furnishings elegantly complement the era.
    At one time this property was the residence of the Bangladeshi Ambassador and many functions must surely have been held here.
