Ivory House Living

Ivory House is a stunning blend of Dutch colonial aesthetics and sleek modern décor with a massive private pool offering delicious respite from the midday sun. The property has been carefully designed to enable guests to fully appreciate the lush beauty of the surrounding region, with a lavish wrap-around terrace offering stunning vistas of the beautiful rice fields hugging the property.

Living Room

The open-plan living room features a muted colour scheme of crisp whites and soft greys, allowing the luscious green views visible through the glass bi-fold doors to take centre stage. When not busy exploring the lush gardens or tea plantation behind the estate, go and lounge by the exotic pool and feel like a truly blessed colonial acreage owner from times gone by watching over your land. When you have fantasised enough, head back indoors and dive into the heather grey sofa and flick through the channels on the massive flatscreen TV.

Dining Room

The dining room houses a stunning ebony dining table. While tucking into a meal prepared in the villa’s kitchen, guests can opt for throwing open the teakwood doors to reveal mesmerising views overlooking the rice fields, or close the doors for a more intimate setting. For alfresco dining, the villa offers a beautiful round dining table perched outside on the verandah where you can enjoy the sounds of the birds and playful monkeys high in the sky.

Garden & Pool

Ivory House has a stunning 20-metre swimming pool, which is shaded by towering-high palm trees. The massive pool is perfect for clocking some serious laps in – though you might be distracted by the jaw-dropping views overlooking the surrounding rice fields. After splashing around in the cool clear waters of the pool, climb out on to the sundeck and park yourself on one of the sleek deckchairs.


Ivory House Bedrooms

Ivory House has four bedrooms. Two rooms have king-sized beds and two rooms have queen-sized beds. All four bedrooms are located under the the same roof and on the same floor in the villa’s main house.

    Best Villa Stay Ever!

    We had the privilege to stay at Ivory House in April 2019 for 1 week. From the moment we arrived a sense of calm and tranquility passed over us all. We were welcomed with warmth and love by Sunil and Pradeep who catered to our every need. The house itself it stunning; immaculate with effortless style. The grounds are teeming with animal life that is a joy to watch from the big wide verandas, and the pool is one of the nicest I’ve had in a private villa. It is deep enough for a dive, and long enough for morning laps with the birds.
    I recommend staying here, and if you do, give our warmest regards to Sunil and Pradeep who felt like family by the end.

    The Most Beautiful House I have Stayed In, An Absolute Winner!

    Ivory House is hidden among the paddy fields, in a beautiful, tranquil and private location. Galle easily accessible with a short and picturesque tuk-tuk ride. Built in true tropical style, the house is of stunning design and beautifully laid-out with an enormous patio wrapped around the front where one can relax and enjoy surrounding nature from early in the morning until late at night.

    Each bedroom is beautiful and quiet, with its own en-suite bathroom and high quality beds/mattresses. The living room and open kitchen are equally beautiful, carefully decorated by the owners who clearly love this house and maintain it with the greatest care. There is a stunning pool, with lovely fresh water, expertly cleaned every day.

    The property does not look or feel like a rental, one could imagine living there permanently, in great luxury. The house comes with permanent staff who clearly love the house and will look after you as if you are the owner. This is the first time I have stayed at a property where I could not find a single item I would change. Bravo!

    “Perfect Galle getaway”

    My family and I just spent 5 nights at The Ivory House and it was absolutely perfect. Located a short tuk tuk away from all our daytime activities- cycling through paddy fields, surfing at the beaches, shopping at Galle Fort. But when you’re in the Villa you feel a million miles away from anything.

    Stunning architecture and design, beautiful gardens, the best pool ever, and an extraordinary team of staff- manager, chef etc. Sunil and Pradeep are absolute professionals who looked after our every need. Three very happy boys, and two very relaxed and happy parents A must.

    “Perfect holiday in the jungle!”

    We had a lovely week long stay at Ivory House in late February, we were a group of 4 adults and one 2.5 year old. The villa itself is lovely, it is a renovated Dutch Colonial house with 4 large bedrooms. The villa interiors are contemporary and very comfortable. The villa surrounds are beautiful; if you are a nature lover you will love this villa! The monkeys in the trees behind the villa kept us entertained each day with their antics! And the variety of birds and other wildlife brought much wonderment.

    Sunil and his team at Ivory House are fantastic and the food is top notch. Having stayed in a number of villas in and around Galle I can confidently recommend Ivory House to anyone considering a jungle escape!

    “Perfect House”

    Situated 30 min tuk tuk ride from Galle Town. A tastefully decorated and comfortable house. With superb staff, nothing was to much trouble, and a chef who had worked in embassies around the world. Super food, and great supporting staff.

    “Stunning property, outstanding Sri Lankan hospitality”

    Spent a wonderful 10 days over Christmas at Ivory House. The property is not only stylish and supremely comfortable, it’s extremely well-appointed for adults and children alike. The place is managed by an incredible in-house team of staff and the villa management company, whose concierge service did an excellent job organising our transfers, activities, nanny service etc; they even ordered wine so that it was chilling for us at the house when we arrived at the start of our holiday.

    The villa is located conveniently for trips via tuk tuk to Galle, the beach plus there are other attractions and lovely restaurants all within easy reach. Alternatively, it’s a lovely spot just to relax for days on end, either by the pool under the palm trees or on the verandah, overlooking the rice paddy fields.

    As much as we loved Ivory House, I have to give a special mention to the in-house team of staff who welcomed us so warmly and provided the best in Sri Lankan hospitality. The villa was kept immaculate throughout our stay, laundry service was included and we were lucky to be served the most delicious food prepared by the in-house chef. Both Sri Lankan and international dishes were offered and we enjoyed every single meal. The top-notch service was all provided with genuine smiles and, as a result, we felt at home right away and were extremely sorry when our holiday came to an end.

    Thank you Ivory House – we’ll definitely be back.

    “Family holiday”

    Ivory House is a beautiful house off the beaten track near Galle. The house is furnished and decorated to a very high and stylish standard. The staff are amazing. Helpful and patient with our little tribe of toddlers and producing the most wonderful meals and level of service to provide a memorable and special holiday for a family celebration. Within a tuk tuk ride of Galle this is the perfect place to stay.
