The Sri Lanka Travel Specialists
Lansiya has a leisurely feel and offers privacy, good food and service and a magnificent outlook across a rocky headland overlooking two of the south-coast's most secluded bays. It does not strive for opulence at all costs, but refurbishments have remained true to its traditional features to give a real taste of living in the tropics. Lansiya consists of two houses: Lansiya Hill, a one-bedroom villa at the top of the garden and Lansiya House, a more spacious three-bedroom house that is well-suited for a family or friends travelling together. Interiors are vibrant with sandstone coloured walls, turquoise doors and windows and local art and sculptures, and furniture is a blend of Dutch-period antiques and comfortable sofas. There are several verandas and lounging spaces on which to relax and beautiful gardens, occasionally visited by squirrels, peacocks and iguanas and a variety of birds. One or two tree frogs seem to prefer the villa itself. The gardens lead down to the secluded Seenimodera bay which is safe for swimming during December to April. The villa has two pet dogs. Lansiya can accommodate up to eight guests and the two houses can be booked exclusively or by two parties at one time.
There are four suites spread across two buildings. Suites are spacious and have verandas with sea views, and are furnished with antique beds fitted with mosquito netting. Overhead fans and the ocean breeze help to keep the rooms cool and airy. Attached bathrooms have outdoor h/w showers.
Lansiya Hill: This is a 1,000 sq ft villa skirted by a veranda with beautiful sea views. There is a double bedroom and a covered area of the veranda forms the living and dining space. There is also a private sun deck, small pantry and mini-bar.
Lansiya House: Consists of three spacious bedrooms on the upper floor which open out to a broad veranda with sea views. Ensuite bathrooms have open-air h/w showers. The ground floor has a living area and a separate lounge equipped with satellite TV, DVD player, a collection of movies and indoor games such as table tennis, darts, carom, and a library filled with interesting books.
The swimming pool and dining and cocktail pavilions are shared by guests at both houses. The open-plan dining area is a tranquil spot with a tiled floor, cane chairs, sofas, dining table and bar area. It lies alongside an infinity swimming pool which gazes down upon the bay. Sri Lankan, western, and Asian cuisine is prepared with locally-purchased fresh seafood and vegetables. Baby-sitting for children over two years can be arranged with prior notice. Guests are welcome to bring their own alcohol or the staff can purchase them from a local liquor store upon request.
This spacious villa overlooks Sugar Bay, an enchanting secluded cove in Tangalle on the south coast. The journey from Colombo’s international airport will take approximately 4 hours.
