Introduction

Nestled amongst tea plantations, Somaland Estate is a colonial plantation bungalow with most of its original architecture surrounded by quiet village life. Built in the late 1890s by a businessman from the southern part of the island, the bungalow shows signs of southern architectural influence with wood lattice panels and a central courtyard, making its design one of a kind. The bungalow is now owned by a former Dutch diplomat who has furnished the house with pieces from different parts of the world where he has served, including India, China and Philippines. The owner stays at the property for approximately three months of the year, in a separate annex building. If you are lucky enough to meet him, Somaland will be brought alive by his stories. Every chair, painting or piece of furniture has a story behind it, making Somaland not just another property, but a place where guests can walk through history.

Accommodation

Each of the four bedrooms is tastefully-furnished with an antique double bed, almirah and vibrant paintings and photographs. Out of the four rooms, two have ensuite bathrooms, while the remaining two share a bathroom across the courtyard. The bathroom has a shower with hot water facilities. There is a separate annex with a small living area, bedroom and bathroom which is reserved for the owner when he is there.

Guests have the choice of having their lunch and dinner in the main dining area or in the garden, while breakfast is served at the courtyard.

Somaland and its grounds are managed and looked-after by the care taker, Gamage, and his wife, Nilani. She prepares great rice and curry as well as some western dishes: speak to them if you would like to try out something different. They also have a collection of spirits and make a signature daiquiri using local arrack. Guests have the option of bringing in their favourite beverages as well.
