Villa
Fun and light-hearted in its conception, and bold in its design, this most particular holiday home, Villa Wambatu was 6 years in the making. An enormous roof supported by huge Palmyra tree columns covers the main breezy living area adjacent to a stunning landscaped garden. Four bedrooms, a kitchen and dining room, and two further living rooms branch off from the main space. In addition there is a fifth 'Pavilion' bedroom in the garden. Cool and breezy, this house is an oasis of green and calm, away from the bustle and sea-spray of neighbouring Galle Fort and nearby beaches - all of which can all be reached in a few minutes by our in-house Tuk Tuk. A sumptuous abode bedecked in pink and purple, this home style can best be described as Bold Contemporary Tropical! Much time and care has been ...Fun and light-hearted in its conception, and bold in its design, this most particular holiday home, Villa Wambatu was 6 years in the making.

Much time and care has been spent in creating all the furniture and fittings on site and by hand, with local craftsmen. It's a quirky, opulent experience living here, and unlike any other villa in Sri Lanka. Made and offered with love from all of us who helped contribute to the creation of this 'Court of the Crimson King'!More

Villa Wambatu is heaven. It has everything we wanted. In the early morning, when only the chant from the monks can be heard in the distance, everything is quite, the infinity pool mirrors the palm trees from the garden, and makes you believe you can...More

About the neighborhood
Unawatuna is a town in southern Sri Lanka. It’s known for its coral reef and its palm-lined beaches, like Unawatuna Beach. Nestled in nearby jungle, the Japanese Peace Pagoda has a stupa with ocean views. The Sea Turtle Farm and Hatchery south of town protects endangered species. North across the bay is the city of Galle’s fortified old town, founded by the Portuguese and expanded by the Dutch in the 17th century.
