Unawatuna, Galle District, Southern Province
Sergeant House is a small, unique, premium boutique villa adjacent Unawatuna Beach. It successfully meshes its colonial period style architectural splendour with 21st century luxury in a serene garden setting.

About the neighborhood
Sergeant House is located directly across the coastal road from the water's edge. Less than 50 metres along the road is the entry to the southern end of the famous crescent shaped Unawatuna Beach. The beach is considered to be one of the best and safest swimming beaches in Sri Lanka. The golden white sands of the beach are fringed with tall swaying coconut palms, cafes, restaurants and other village shops. The entry gates to Sergeant House open to reveal the waves breaking on the shore opposite and vistas of the water are possible from both the Sea View Pavilion and Poolside Pavilion.<BR><BR>During the main dry season (December - April) the sea around Unawatuna is relatively calm and perfect for swimming and snorkelling particularly around the Rhumassala Headland where turt... more

How to get there
Airport: Colombo International Airport: 93.2 mi
Railway: Galle Railway Station: 3.7 mi
Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA) is located 30 kilometres north of Colombo. Travel time between the airport and Colombo varies around one hour. Sergeant House is located 120 kilometres south of Colombo on the south west coast. The route to Sergeant House via the expressway is significantly faster than the coastal road. Vehicle transfers from BIA to Sergeant House take approximately two hours, depending on your arrival time. From October 2013 an additional highway link at the airport will reduce travel time considerably.<BR><BR>Sergeant House can arrange a comfortable van and driver to meet you upon arrival at the airport and also assist you with your return transfers from the House. If you would like us to book your transfers, we would require your flight details includ... more
