Bellini Blue is a small two-bedroom beach villa on the outskirts of Galle and an attractive choice for a romantic couple attracted by a coastal villa on Sri Lanka's most upmarket coastal strip. Here is a trim beach villa with coupledom in mind, although a small second bedroom can also house one or two children as well. A stylish modern house in a coastal garden with swaying palms. The ocean immediately in front of Bellini Blue is often too rough for swimming but Wijaya beach, a short distance away, has a coral lagoon as well as a bar-cum-restaurant that pulls in tourists and ex-pats alike. Bookings will not normally be accepted for less than three nights, although occasionally the stipulation is waived.
The villa has two bedrooms located on the upper floor of which the spacious Master Suite with a lounge opens out to a broad balcony with spectacular sea views. It has a four poster canopied bed, an air cooler machine and overhead fan. The second room is a small twin room with a/c. Bellini Blue can comfortably accommodate two adults and two children.
Downstairs there is an open plan sitting area with large, comfortable sofas and a dining area – which can be moved to the poolside in the evenings. There is a large pool and sundeck. At the end of the garden is a lovely cushioned seating area overlooking the beach, perfect for sunset. The Villa has three staff – a chef, houseboy and housekeeper - and a night watchman. You can chose your meals from the in-house menu or make a special request: meals are charged at cost. In addition to the house kitchen, there is also a kitchenette/bar in the living area for guests to store their own food and drinks. Other villa facilities include free wifi, iPod dock, satellite TV, and DVD player.
Why We Like It
One of the more affordable options on the upmarket Thalpe strip.
Bellini Blue is on the outskirts of Galle's upmarket beach settlement of Thalpe. Journey from Colombo’s international airport down the Southern Highway is around 2.5 hours or take the air taxi to nearby Koggala Lake. If you are heading to the hills afterwards, we offer competitive rates on a sea plane service from Koggala lake to Hatton.
