Sagara is one of the Sri Villas trio (along with four-bedroomed Araliya and three-bedroomed Nisala ) that sit side-by-side overlooking a panoramic expanse of west coast beach and deep blue sea. Although Sagara shares its contemporary design, as well as a big swimming pool and garden with its sister properties, this villa’s intimate living areas and pieces of colonial furniture provide it with character and give it a certain edge. Each of the three double suites is private, spacious and equitably sized, with sweeping sea views, and this makes Sagara the best of Sri’s three villas for a group of friends and couples sharing.
Sagara is fully-staffed and has been designed with relaxation in mind. Much of the seating both inside the house and out on the poolside veranda are cushioned loungers that inspire you with their blatant displays of laziness.They invite you to comfortably recline throughout the day with a book or with a pre-dinner cocktail as the sky darkens and transforms palm trees into silhouettes against a candy pink sky. Candles create atmosphere at dusk; their yellow flames mirroring the lights of the fishing boats that begin to slowly illuminate the horizon.
Sri Villas is more sociable than serene and designed for conviviality rather than solitude. Even if you don’t know your neighbours before you arrive the chances are you’ll know a little more about them by the end of your trip; a quick discussion in the pool might turn into something long lasting as you push tables together for dinner and share a beach BBQ under the stars. Of course, the three owners of Sri Villas – themselves lifelong friends who have enjoyed the sociability of communal holidays - created the property with this in mind.
Renting these three fully-staffed villas together and having them exclusively to yourselves is an excellent option for big groups; it’s economical too since the villas operate a grocery system for food so all you pay for is the cost of the ingredients. With direct access onto a beautifully wide stretch of beach, Sri Villas is also a wonderful place to host events such as birthdays, weddings and family reunions.
