South Coast » Tangalle » Kurumba House

Kurumba, near Tangalle, is exactly the type of property where you take off your shoes on arrival and don’t put them back on until you leave; throughout the house smooth titanium floors are cooling on the feet whilst the soft sand of the beach is just a short potter across a wide green lawn. Two identical bedrooms – both spacious and with direct sea views – a deep open-plan living and dining terrace and a fully equipped western-style kitchen provide all the essentials for simple, barefoot living. Décor is uncluttered, contemporary and, through a sensible interior design, suits the seaside location perfectly, whilst the bonus of having a small staff to cook, clean and shop for you certainly adds to this property’s already enviable charm.

Stretching seawards from Kurumba’s deep pillared veranda is a lawn scattered with reclining chairs topped with sun mattresses and gazing out to sea. Between the boughs of two fine-leafed trees languishes a hammock furnished with a soft rug and cushions for soulful swinging to the sound of the waves. At the lower end of the garden and under the shade of a huge kurumba tree – the property’s namesake - is a timber ambalama complete with barrel-sized cushions that offer instant relief as you melt into their soft pinstriped embrace. The sea in front of Kurumba offers safe swimming in certain places year-round and is excellent for body boarding – a couple of boards are provided for guest use – while the beach house’s central location within wide Mawella Bay is a bonus as the bleached golden sand extends for a kilometre in each direction.

Kurumba exhibits an air of calm and tranquillity; it’s a place to get away from it all. As such, it offers few facilities and leaves guests to entertain themselves. Staff keep the house tidy and Tekla can cook excellent Sri Lankan cuisine, a number of pasta dishes and lots of salads, which means that you will be well fed and have little need to eat out. Once your shoes are off; time becomes meaningless at Kurumba and sundrenched days slowly melt into night.
