Private Villas in Sri Lanka

Private Villas in Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka is a fantastic country to visit on a family holiday or with a group of friends. We know from experience that when one is travelling in a larger party, requiring multiple rooms, it is important to be together and to have your own space in which to relax. Sometimes sharing hotel facilities can be awkward for you and for other guests, especially in destinations where you may be spending a significant time relaxing in your accommodation, such as when close to a beach or in Sri Lanka’s hill country.

We have therefore scoured this wonderful island and hand-picked a varied selection of fabulous private villas and bungalows that you may like to consider booking for your exclusive use. Private villas in Sri Lanka are available in many destinations throughout the island, with a large selection found on the south coast, between Galle and Yala – a great place to be finishing your holiday in Sri Lanka with time relaxing on a beach. 

Sri Lanka has a marvellous collection of private villas and small boutique hotels which we work closely with and can book out for your exclusive use, whether you are just a party of four adults or a group of large families travelling together.   

Booking a private villa in Sri Lanka not only means you don’t have to share facilities with other guests, but it also allows you more flexibility with mealtimes and activities. Most villas come equipped with staff and cooks. If you are filling all the bedrooms, then booking a private villa in Sri Lanka can sometimes be a significantly more economical option than staying in a hotel too. 

We have tantalising options for private villas in Sri Lanka with 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and more bedrooms and many villas are former private residences steeped with history and stylishly refurbished, the Taru Villas in Rampart Street in Galle Fort is a great example of this. It is even possible to stay in a private villa designed by the famous Sri Lankan architect, Geoffrey Bawa, such as the Last House on the heavenly Mawella Beach near Tangalle.

Of course, you will also find some great hotels in Sri Lanka that can offer a private villa experience within their own grounds, so this is another great option if you are a family or group of friends travelling together. Examples of this (to name just a few) include the Anantara Peace Haven in Tangalle, Rosyth Estate House in the beautiful countryside near Kegalle, Jim’s Farm Villas near Matale, Uga Bay in the east coast beach resort of Passikudah and the Wild Grass Nature Resort near Sigiriya in the heart of the Cultural Triangle region.

But if none of these quite match the area, size, style or budget that you’re looking for, then please do speak to one of our Sri Lanka experts as we may well have some other places up our sleeves that would suit you! 

Private villas in Sri Lanka do get booked up early, especially in the busy Easter, Christmas and Summer school holidays so it pays to plan your holiday in Sri Lanka well in advance.
