Taru Villas - Yala offers peace and privacy in Tissamaharama, an area where villas are scarce. The villa has two bedrooms, a swimming pool and a spacious central living and dining area which is open at two sides, allowing for a refreshing tropical breeze to cool the space. Minimalist in design, the interiors are a blend of polished cement, white walls and dark wooden beams which have been shaped to resemble tree trunks. Furnishings are in muted neutral tones, lifted by occasional bright spots of colour, and traditional Asian artefacts add notes of interest to the living area. The villa is surrounded by well-kept gardens, home to the occasional squirrel or peacock, and is fronted by a gate, artfully constructed using cinnamon sticks, which provides added security. The villa is booked as a whole.
