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, the comfort of the huge atrium as well as five full-time staff, and you have all the ingredients in place for a tropical holiday to remember. For those who want a tranquil getaway with the choice to be active or not and who do not want to... Read more

Siyambala House, the staff, Sri Lanka.... all exceeded our expectations. The house was beautiful, the rooms were comfortable and family friendly. The lanai and pool are by all means the best part of Siyambala. We spent all of our free time in the pool or relaxing outside. We loved to monkey visits and water monitors wandering through the yard. Nalaka,...

Siyambala House was perfect. We were a party of 2 families with 7 children between us, aged from 9 to 17 and the house was ideal- really light and spacious, with a beautiful pool that kept the kids happy. We spent our evenings enjoying 'sundowners' on the terrace , watching the sun set over the lake. From the minute we...

Thank you all for your kind review. You are welcome anytime for more surf and sundowners!

We travelled with our extended family to Siyambala House for our wedding and we were not disappointed. From the beginning of our enquiries, Alison and Nalaka were excellent. They help us plan everything before we arrived and everything went smoothly from the airport transfers to arrival at the villa. Nalaka arranged everything from tours to transport for whatever it was...

Thank you so much for this review and for sharing your photos. I hope married life is blissful. Do come back for anniversaries!

About the neighborhood
Tranquillity is guaranteed at the 43-acre Koggala Lake, which is a protected site, for its bird life in particular. You will see fishermen rowing out to catch fresh prawns and other delights, including kestrels, kites and fruit bats which festoon the sky at sunset. From the house you can take a boat or swim out to some of its small islands such as Cinnamon Island, where a family still harvests the bark of this plant and is happy to demonstrate and brew up a refreshing cup of cinnamon tea, the Buddhist temple on another of the islands, or Ananda Spice Garden.<BR><BR>If you can tear yourself away from the house, the local area offers a wealth of excursions. Just speak to our manager Nalaka, who will arrange everything.<BR><BR>Koggala Beach – one of the World's Mos... more
