Close to Colombo, Negombo and the Airport - perfect for a first or last stop on your Sri Lanka holiday, or for a city escape and a long relaxing weekend
Our beautifully restored Diklande Estate Bungalow has three rooms with attached bathrooms and a large airy sitting and dining area which opens out to the terrace with a deep turquoise swimming pool. The setting within a coconut plantation creates a unique feel that combines the bungalow’s colonial heritage with its tropical location.
Vacation and waving deep green fronds of coconut trees…
No, you are not at the beach, but in the middle of a 50 acre functioning coconut plantation, a peaceful location full of old world charm and quaintness.
The Diklande Estate Bungalow is located within 1 hour of the Colombo city limits, 40 minutes from the International Airport and 30 minutes from the popular coastal town of Negombo, and less than 5 minutes from the road leading to Dambulla and Sigiriya. This makes it a perfect place to start or end your vacation in Sri Lanka. And for those caught up in the daily grind of Colombo, it is a great escape, spending a long, relaxing rejuvenating weekend away from the stress and noise of the city.
Our beautifully restored 3-bedroom bungalow has a large airy sitting and dining area which opens out to the terrace with a deep turquoise swimming pool. The vintage furniture adds to the unique feel that combines the bungalow’s colonial heritage with its tropical location.
There are three bedrooms with attached bathrooms and hot water showers. The modern bathroom units follow an open style allowing the sunlight to stream in. All rooms have king-sized double beds and an extra bed can be installed in two of the rooms, accommodating in total 8 guests. It is possible to book the entire bungalow, as well as separate rooms.
Our friendly staff includes a house-keeper and cook, and delicious home-made Sri Lankan and western meals will be served in the dining area, by the pool or at the BBQ.
Guests have access to the public areas of the bungalow, the swimming pool and the 50 acre coconut estate.
I am based in Colombo most of the time but that is no problem at all, because you will be looked after well by our fantastic staff.
I am the founder of Back of Beyond - eco lodges in Sri Lanka.
Back of Beyond was an idea started due to my love for travel and nature, and the difficulty faced in trying to find suitable accommodation to suit my budget and taste.
I am based in Colombo but I travel frequently to my eco retreats in Sigiriya, Yala, Anuradhapura and near Tangalle. Hence, most often I do not get to meet the AirBnB guests, but you will be looked after well by the wonderful staff at the different bungalows.
Relax & enjoy nature!
