There are few villas in Sri Lanka able to offer what Lansiya can; true privacy, abundant space, magnificent views, extraordinarily sensitive service, exceptional cuisine and beautifully landscaped surroundings. Situated above a rocky wave-splashed headland overlooking two of the south coast’s most spectacular and secluded sandy bays, this artistic four-bedroom property offers a true taste of the tropics as it succumbs to its tumbling landscaped surroundings so completely; every bedroom, living space and dining area relishing the invigorating sea views. Dips in the infinity swimming pool, showers under the stars, high tea on the lawn, candlelit dinners enhanced by fireflies, and a multiplicity of spots for solitude and socialising; Lansiya has it all.
Lansiya’s clutch of buildings are set within a garden filled with many palm species, unusual coastal vegetation and exotic favourites such as frangipani, heliconia and hibiscus, not to mention a rolling emerald green lawn offering a delightful setting for weddings and events. A stream descends through the garden sprouting multi-limbed palms as it goes, finally ending at a little blue gate beside the spray-speckled boulders and the energetic swell of the sea. Offering unrivalled privacy, Lansiya was originally a delicious one-suite villa beloved of honeymooners; however the owners have recently added three more ensuite bedrooms as well as a chill-out pavilion that gazes across the infinity swimming pool towards the open-sided dining area and bar. Chic, rustic and stylish, Lansiya is still an exceptional place for lovebirds, but has sensitively evolved into a wonderful retreat for families and friends as well.
Artistic touches such as the earthy colour schemes, the eye-catching collection of paintings, prints, pastels and photographs, as well as an elegant design both inside and out all offer an insight into the personalities of the owners from Colombo who cherish this special family hideaway and visit as often as they can. As such, it feels lived in and loved; books and DVDs fill cabinets, board games and cricket bats are available for use and the welcoming team of staff know exactly how to look after guests with just the right balance of friendliness and discretion. The owners are also foodies and chef Sylvester cooks up some sensational dishes that heighten the enjoyment of staying here even more; conveniently, all food and soft drinks are included in the rate.
