If you're looking for the perfect luxury holiday villa to rent in one of the most outstanding environments in Sri Lanka then look no further............
Satori is a newly refurbished Dutch colonial villa, stylishly laid out over 2.5 acres of terraced landscaped gardens and lawns, tranquil ponds with stunning panoramic views and a large infinity pool.
Situated in the jungle yet only moments from the sparkling Indian Ocean, you can experience the best of both worlds: with some of Sri Lanka’s finest beaches moments away without the noise of the busy coastal highway.
This 6500 sq ft luxury villa nestles high on a hill, 65m above sea level with breathtaking views of the jungle, valleys, paddy fields and ocean beyond. Satori promises to spoil you in the privacy of your own surroundings with exotic & healthy cuisine, a warm & gracious service, not forgetting the troupes of monkeys & vibrant birds. Daily yoga, massages, meditation & Ayurvedic treatments are all available on request.
For those in need of a break from busy lives and demanding schedules and for those who prefer exclusivity, this exceptional property offers the perfect hideaway. Satori is the ideal environment for any combination of families, friends, groups or honeymooners. With it's tropical ambience, rare and magical setting in an abundance of nature, we offer you a truly unforgettable experience.
For those who like a little more adventure you can take a trip by Tuk Tuk locally to the world heritage historic Galle Fort, its fruit, fish and spice markets, Buddhist temples and of course miles upon miles of stunning palm fringed beaches. Further beyond we can organise outstanding trips and tours to suit all tastes. Sri Lanka is a truly beautiful country, a 'must' to visit and as yet is unspoilt by mass tourism.
Finally, Satori is designed to be your home away from home. We take pride in seeing you and your guests leave rested, rejuvenated and inspired.
We look forward to welcoming you and your guests at Satori very soon.
Our team at Satori are dedicated to make your stay as relaxing, enjoyable and easy as possible. They work with complete integrity so please trust them and do not hesitate to ask them for anything that you think will add more value to your stay. That includes cooking lessons, a cake for tea or coconut drinks from our trees etc.
Eat & Drink
Our breakfast of tropical fruits, choice of eggs, tea or coffee and toasts are included in the room rate along with chilled mineral water. For all further meals and drinks including alcohol required we recommend a kitty system that has been successfully used since our opening and will save you both time and money so you can focus on your relaxation.
Once you have settled in your hosts can sit with you and help you compile a shopping list to cover your needs for your stay. They will give you a clear idea of what is and isn¹t available locally. They are happy to show you where the markets are and take you shopping or you can let them take care of that for you. All your produce is bought locally and at local price.
We operate a transparency policy so you can see the accounts and receipts of your purchases at any time. We suggest on between (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) rupees per head per day to cover your needs. Any money left in the kitty will be returned to you at the end of your stay.
Please note that Galle is not blessed with the best wine supply so we recommend the wider range available at the duty free located on then other side of passport control when you come in at the airport.
Our chef can prepare a whole range of delicious & healthy cuisine from traditional local curries to a number of western dishes. We offer a wide range of fresh daily salads and juices to accompany all your meals.
When you¹re not out for lunch or dinner our chef is happy to cook all your meals for you and is also able to help you prepare any dishes you or your guests may wish to cook yourselves. The kitchen, its utensils and the staff are at your disposal so please make yourself at home. Please let us know if you have any food allergies or any special diet requirements in your group.
Satori will take care of all your sheets and towels. If you have any further laundry requirements our Team will take your items to town and return them fresh and pressed. This will be charged at local rate and taken from your kitty if required.
We have a number of Tuk Tuk drivers that are reliable, speak English and give our guests good rates. Tuk Tuks take between 2 -3 people at a time so if you are larger group you can organize multiple Tuk Tuks or arrange for an air-conditioned van than take up to 10 guests. Generally transport is taken to the local beaches 3kms away or Galle town about 4kms away. Once again our team will help you organize any transportation requirements and help you with the prices.
one of the great experiences to be had in Sri Lanka is making your own shirts and clothing at the fraction of western prices. Local markets offer a wide range of quality fabrics that can be turned into stylish garments within days. We recommend you bring out any item of clothing you want to copy. Ask our team for further details.
Internet & Phone
By spending $6 on a Sri Lankan sim card, which you can usually drop into any phone, you are likely to save a whole stack of cash on phone bills. Calls from a sri lankan mobile to a European mobile costs approximately $0.40 USD a minute. The best place to get this is at the airport when you arrive, there¹s usually a Dialogue office open on the other side of the money change.
We have a slow but steady 3G Internet connection if you wish to check your e-mails, again ask our team to set you up.
We have an ipod docking station in the living room and also an impressive speaker system situated in the living room that fills the garden and pool area with a wide range of tunes housed in itunes on the laptop.
You, your guests and all your belongings are completely secure at Satori. There is always somebody at the property during the day and at night we have a security guard at the gate. There is also a safe located in the villa.
For those of you not sure whether you are going to experience a totally relaxing time at Satori , we have an amazing nanny called Adriani . She may not have many teeth left but she's a genius with babies and young children. My friends and guests have been specially impressed with her conduct and ability to calm all screaming babies and children in a matter of seconds. So whilst you are relaxing in the pool or tucking into a good book Adriani can keep your little ones amused for hours and it also means you can go out at night and enjoy the many restaurants on the beach or in Galle Fort.
