The Bungalow is located in a 80 acre Cinnamon & Rubber Plantation without any public access. Ideal for meditation, yoga, writing books, jogging,hiking, bird watching and family-friendly activities. Its only 20 Minutes drive from Mirissa, Weligama, Matara and Polhena beaches. 2 1/2 hrs drive from both International Airports. You’ll love the Bungalow because of the outdoors space, scenic beauty, total silence, away from the human habitat. An ideal place to completely rejuvenate.
After many years in planning, a new bungalow has been built into the side of a hill overlooking the cinnamon fields to a design and supervision by C Anjalendran, formerly an associate of the iconic Sri Lankan architect, the late Geoffrey Bawa. The Bungalow is spacious and open in character, with broad, granite-paved verandas and steps, high timber ceilings, teak furniture, and has a stunning view of the surrounding countryside.
Entrance is from the car park forecourt up granite steps to the south-facing veranda where the glistening blue of our infinity swimming pool contrasts with the verdant surroundings of cinnamon bushes, forest and hills. Guests are greeted with a welcome freshly squeezed fruit drink to sip while gazing at the view and hearing wild peacocks cry.
The veranda runs the width of the main reception area of lounge with sofas and armchairs and its adjoining dining area where a solid slab of mara timber forms a dining table that seats twelve. Beyond is the garden courtyard with a library and guest rooms on the west and east sides. A back interior veranda with wrought iron sliding gates and ancient Indian swing is a private area for relaxation.
