Stylish colonial hotel ideal for young couples seeking tranquillity yet with activities within easy access.

Set off the main road in the middle of a coconut plantation, Club Villa is the epitome of boutique hotels- a quiet residence with 15 deluxe rooms.

A relaxed atmosphere that makes every guest feel at home. Enter the private gates and be greeted by a refreshing fruit cocktail and the sound of truly enormous jumping catfish.

His friend, and once neighbour, Geoffrey Bawa designed this 19th Century Dutch colonial style beach residence, based on Hameed's inspiration of majestic pillars, calming fish pools and serene décor that compliments the white-washed walls and soporific sway of the palm trees glimpsed outside.  Long, grey stone corridors end with sitting rooms scattered with marble tables and brightly coloured cotton cushions.

Immaculately manicured gardens run along the white sandy beach.  Soak in the crystal blue pool or take a nap in the many hammocks strung between the frangipani trees. 

Manager, Mr Vasu, is a fountain of local knowledge for the nearby sights.  Ideally located for trips to historic Galle, tours of Geoffrey Bawa's eclectic architecture, and the Brief Gardens of brother Bevin Bawa.

Club Villa has a young feel and families are a familiar sight, as the long, sandy beaches and calm tides are a castle-maker's paradise. Couples chat quietly and swap elephant and leopard sighting stories over afternoon tea.

  • Candlelit dinners on the beach with a personal Maitre d'
     
  • Wonderful balance of opulence and simple living
     
  • Excellent cuisine
     
  • Christmas and New Year parties
     
  • Just a stroll away from water sports, local markets, turtle hatcheries and many village crafts
     
  •  The 6-7am  rattling trains that run past the end of the garden about 5 times during day to 9pm. Guests claim that you don't notice them after the first night
       
  • At Christmas and New Year the hotel is full and  it can get a little noisy around the pool
     
  • Some say the restaurant can be slow in peak season but the delicious daily set-menu is always extremely swift.
     
  • Whilst you face the Ocean at the bottom of the garden, the belt of coconut  trees masks a sunset on the horizon. The sound of the ocean is always present
