The Sri Lanka Travel Specialists
Originally known as `Camillia’, this estate bungalow was built by a British planter in 1876. The property is now owned by a Sri Lankan family who has refurbished the old bungalow with much care retaining its original features of verandahs and spacious living areas. Interiors are stylishly decorated with modern furniture and natural colours. The bungalow is well equipped with all modern conveniences. Comilla has only two spacious suites and a separate self-contained lodge that can be rented by the room on a BB basis. The main bungalow stands under the shade of a century old lychee tree which is frequented by numerous birds. Over 50 species of birds have been recorded in the gardens at Comilla and is a treat for nature lovers.
There are two suites named Stork Studio and Knox Studio; and a separate chalet known as the Silva Lodge. All rooms have a/c and open on to a verandah with garden views.
Stork & Knox Studios: These two suites consist of a living area, bedroom with king-size bed, an additional day bed that can accommodate a third guest and writing table; dressing room, private dining facilities, and well-designed ensuite bathrooms with h/w showers that open to the sky. Other in-room facilities includes a 32 inch LCD TV with satelite channels, mini-bar, tea /coffee facility, safety locker, hair dryer, bath robes and pool towels.
Silva Lodge: This is a self-contained lodge which is located separately from the main bungalow and is ideal for a family or even a romantic getaway. The Silva Lodge has living and dining areas, bedroom with a king-size bed, and pantry equipped with a microwave, fridge, crockery and cutlery. The Silva Lodge opens on to two decks overlooking the garden where private candlelit dinners are served. In-room facilities includes a 32 inch LCD TV with satelite channels, mini-bar, tea /coffee facility, safety locker, hair dryer, bath robes and pool towels.
There is a lounge, TV room, dining area and a juice bar. Sri Lankan and western cuisine is served in the dining room, pool deck, or in the privacy of your own room.
