Taru Villas - Rock Villa is a wonderful private beach villa owned by Nayantara Fonseka (Taru), a renowned Sri Lankan lifestyle designer and creator of several other dream destinations on the island. The old wallawa has been caringly refurbished, maintaining its original architectural features of courtyards, veranda and hand-carved ornate timber window frames. Interiors are contemporary in style with a relaxed, informal ambience. Dutch-period antiques, plush sofas and colourful soft furnishings are combined with contemporary art and sculptures, fresh lotus flowers and ethnic touches to create stylish interiors. The main wallawwa consists of two bedrooms and a living and dining area opening out to the gardens. A newly-constructed set of rooms with a lounge blends seamlessly with the old wallawwa architecture. A spacious dining pavilion overlooks the swimming pool. A beautiful beach stretch lies at the bottom of the garden, accessed by a few strides across the simple, single gauge railway line. Most find this occasional train interesting and unobtrusive. Young children should be well supervised when crossing this railway line to get to the beach. Rock Villa can be booked by the room or as a whole and can comfortably accommodate 12 guests. Rock Villa is the sister property of Lake Lodge in Colombo owned by Taru Villas.
NOTE: Bookings for the entire property as well as the Walauwa Suite require a minimum of two nights stay.
