Suriyawatta Living

In true tropical style, Suriyawatta effortlessly blurs the lines between indoor and outdoor spaces. The beautifully landscaped property cascades down to the beach, allowing guests to wander through the garden and indulge in a spontaneous dip in the pool with ease. The estate is set around a private courtyard, with vast indoor spaces enjoying a fresh breeze thanks to fluid open-plan architecture.

Living Room

The living room boasts stunning tiled floors and a sky-high vaulted ceiling. Guests get to kick back and relax on elegant grey sofas and either take in the impressive views (courtesy of the room’s expansive open-plan design) or relish the carefully chosen décor of the room with bespoke curated art hanging on the walls. If you simply need a little break from reality, flick through the channels of the satellite TV.

Dining Room

The villa’s generous dining table is perched outside in the enthralling terrace area. Seating up to 10 people, the table is perfectly positioned to offer mesmerising views of the luscious garden and the deep blue waves of the ocean. The villa’s spacious kitchen is meticulously well-equipped – there’s even an ice cream maker to satisfy your summertime cravings!

Garden & Pool

Make your way down the gentle sloping gardens and discover a heavenly blue pool perched right between the villa and the ocean. After a dip in the salt-water pool, rinse yourself off beneath the alfresco shower tucked into the steps leading down to the beach. The property takes its name from the lush tulip trees towering over the pool, which are only one example of the vibrant green beauty of the property. To host an unforgettable pool party, make use of the Bose speakers tucked into garden and curate the soundtrack of an epic night in paradise.

    We planned this holiday with our family spread across various countries, meeting in Sri Lanka. We choose this place as we had visited previously and again were not disappointed!! The location of the villa is amazing, well maintained and extremely comfortable. The staff are absolutely incredible and went out of their way to cater to our every need. The chef whipped up superb meals which were enjoyed by all. The manager of the villa ensured our comfort. Definitely recommend this destination

    WOW. What a Place. Great for Everyone. Fabulous Service

    Suriyawatta is a beautiful, picturesque villa overlooking the beach in Weligama.

    We booked the villa with our friends, our group consisted of 3 families young families and a single friend. Children ranging from 0-4. The aim of the holiday was to have a relaxing couple of days where we didnt have to worry about safety or entertaining the children, while still having a fun holiday with friends. We hit the jackpot!

    The villa is perfect for groups and families, there is enough space for 14 people sleeping, and the space around the villa compliments this and allows everyone to find their own space for some quiet time. We found ourselves moving from area to area throughout the day. We didn’t once need to leave the villa.

    There are a few things to do around the area, however I have to say, you will probably be more than happy staying put.

    Our little one spent the whole day splashing around in the infinity pool, while we enjoyed the views from it, the pool has both sun and shade so we could send the whole day there without worry. There is a seasonally safe swimming beach two houses down.

    The staff were really fantastic, they were there when we needed but never made us feel uncomfortable. There is a chef, whose food was fabulous, the manu catered for all, and enough options for the whole stay, although they ma now have run our of chocolate fudge cake.

    This was a great trip and it was all done to the villa and the staff.

    Phenomenal Villa Stay

    We have just returned from 5 days at the Suryiwatta Villa and all I can say is WOW. Amazing service, amazing views, great food, plenty of games for everyone to keep busy and an absolutely stunning private beach area.

    The villa has been so well thought out by the owners and offers great fun for all the family.

    Sanjeewa the house manager and his staff were so welcoming from the moment we arrived and could not have done anymore to make us feel welcome and relaxed.

    Whilst relaxing in the villa, we managed to see large lizards, monkeys, gecko’s, frogs, chipmunks (or something that looks similar) and so much more, so that was also a highlight for the kids.

    We will be back very soon and look forward to spending some more time exploring the area.

    Beautiful Villa with Exceptional Views

    We had the most fantastic stay at Suriyawatta. Sanjeewa and his team were exceptional in the way they looked after us, nothing was too much for them. Food was amazing, both for the adults and children, every day was a feast. The villa itself is beautifully appointed, with a well thought out design that allows plenty of space for children to run around. Lots of lovely spots to relax in the garden or by the pool. The view is outstanding, we sat watching the ocean for hours. Location wise it is lovely and peaceful, yet close enough to Galle (30 mins by car max) and a short Tuk Tuk to the surfing beaches around weligama. The only negative was having to leave!! Thank you to the whole team for a memorable stay.

    “Brilliant family beach villa”

    Located in Turtle Bay in Weligama, Suriyawatta is a very special villa designed with barefoot family holidays in mind. We were a family of 9 – 3 couples and 2 teenagers and a tween. I’ve stayed in more than a handful of villas on Sri Lanka’s south coast and Suriyawatta is the clear winner!

    The location – perched on a hill side overlooking the Indian Ocean — only a few minutes from the surf schools and conveniences of Weligama, walking distance to Cape Weligama Hotel (if you wanted a spa experience or a fancy night out). It’s about 45 mins to Galle. But honestly, you won’t want to leave.

    The house and garden have been designed to allow everyone their “own space together.” There are ceiling fans every few feet on the wide verandah of the main house allowing the shade-seekers to see the ocean and the pool from the comfort of the verandah. The shadows in the garden from the frangipani trees are magical. There’s a sound system (SONOS) with garden speakers. There’s an infinity edge pool which enjoys both shade and sun. There is a seasonally safe swimming beach two houses down — the walk along the beach is only possible at low tide and involves scrambling down some rocks, but it’s super easy to walk from the house gate down the beach road (100 paces at most!).

    Sanjeewa and the household staff are wonderful. They are present but not hovering. The chef is very willing to try recipes. The house menu affords plenty of options for diverse palettes/tastes.

    We’ll be back!

    “Best Villa Rented in Sri Lanka so far!”

    I would highly recommend Suriyawatta. We have rented a few villas in Sri Lanka and by far this one has been the best. Beautiful location, stunning views. Access to a private beach. Great staff. Tastefully furnished. Good food, everything was just perfect.

    (Okay just one tiny thing – I would recommend they keep a range of toiletries in the bathroom)

    We had a great stay and really hope to be back

    “A magical place!”

    If you’re looking for a true private holiday, this is the place! From arrival to check out we felt so well looked after and amazed about the house.
    It’s about 2,5 hrs from Colombo airport. There are big gates when entering with security at the street gate and by the sea gate including the beautiful dog Lola.
    We slept 5 adults and to babies in this house but we had 2 rooms empty. One we used for massages. Lovely and very cheap. We did yoga one day with a local instructor which was fantastic. The staff are very helpful and kind. Chef cooked great meals which we decided ourselves. Try the hoppers in the morning w an egg in. Local breakfast – yummy. Lots of lovely fruits. We had BBQ (red snapper) one evening under the tree. Delicious and stunning setting. The pool is lovely and it’s great for kids as there’s a small shall area of the pool. But the pool is also fenced off from the house so it’s safe for the kids.
    Sanjeeva- house manager was very professional and speaks perfect English. Around the area there’s not much to see or do. I’d suggest you just stay in the house and enjoy the pool and the sea. Thank you very much again for looking after us.
