We couldn’t have had a more perfect introduction to our 12 day trip to Sri Lanka. With only two rooms in individual Pavillions set in rural gardens next door to a Buddhist temple it feels like a luxury retreat from the city. So peaceful surrounded...More

This was the most incredible experience! You really experience the local living but in luxury!! Perfect and amazing service! If you are a woman don’t plan to wash your hair here though, it’s an old bath - funny to try!!

About
Description
It's "Jungle Glam", with manicured jungle surroundings for this stylish boutique hotel. It's ideal for couples or a family seeking an experience in rural Sri Lanka, only 40km from the heart of Colombo and only More 25km from the capital's airport. It's an ideal place to stop over as a hotel near Colombo airport, before the start of your travels around Sri Lanka, or at the end of your holiday, enjoy some luxury before flying home. The two Bedrooms are in stylized pavilions, each having its own terrace, sitting and private dining area. With swimming pool, Wi-Fi, TV & DVDs. Casa Heliconia is an ideal wedding venue for guests who prefer an intimate wedding with either simply the Bride & Groom, or for up to two of their guests, for a paradise wedding hotel in Sri Lanka. Or couples can choose this stunning location for their honeymoon hotel in Sri Lanka, there is peace and seclusion and excellent service from our staff. There are many interesting places to visit near Casa Heliconia. These include Dolpotha; an acre of isolated rural land where you can enjoy uninterrupted 360 degree views of paddy fields paired with a delicious picnic of local produce and a good book. Talk to the locals and get to know how it all works or simply watch and admire the rhythm of the village. Or travel to Miriswatta and visit the Uruwala Temple. The care with which the temple's building & artefacts are maintained is touching evidence of the devotion of Sri Lanka's Buddhists. The monks can provide enchanting details associated with the temple complex, some of whose structures are hewn from the rock. Carved out of solid rock on three levels, Waruna temple features buttressed walls, high overhangs & drip ledges that protect a series of ancient frescoes, now reduced to outlines. The strenuous climb to the roof of the temple is rewarded by the magnificent tropical vegetation. Stop off at one of the many stalls in the "Village of Cashew Nuts" and taste the variety of flavoured cashews or cadju's as they are locally known. Chilli roasted cadju are a local treat whilst raw cadju's can be used as a tropical ingredient in curries and salads or as a gift to take home. The busy little village of Wewaldeniya provides an outlet for locally made cane baskets & mats in its bazaar. It is also a popular halt for those with a sweet tooth searching for Thala (sesame) seed grinded with jaggery (solid palm honey) and Thalagulis which are freshly made at Jinadasa's shop among others. The hamlet of Dedigama, the mid-12th century capital of one of the three principalities into which Sri Lanka was divided in the pre-colonial era. The 12th century dagoba. The village has many remains & artefacts from that time, some housed in the local museum, & most bear the stamp of Dedigama's most illustrious son, King Parakrambahu the Great. Less
