Kumara is a stylish villa set on two acres of lush tropical gardens just ten minutes inland from Weligama’s spectacular beaches on Sri Lanka's south coast. Kumara consists of three separate pavilions: an exquisite living pavilion which opens out to an infinity edge swimming pool and two separate luxurious suites with their own private terraces immersed in walled, private gardens. The buildings are a beautiful blend of contemporary and Asian styles, with antique windows and doorways, oriental furnishings and sculptures and modern architectural and interior design features. Spend your days in the privacy of your relaxing by the poolside with the sound of bird call and the ocean waves in the background, or take in the sun and surf at Weligama Bay (seas are ideal for swimming and surfing between December and April). The two suites are booked exclusively and can accommodate up to four guests.
The two adjoining suites are set away from the living pavilion. Each consists of a luxurious ensuite bedroom with large glass doors opening on to a private terrace and walled gardens. Bedrooms are spacious, furnished with king-sized beds and lounge chairs. In-room facilities include a/c, overhead fans, tea/coffee facilities, electronic safe and hair dryer. Stylish ensuite bathrooms have twin vanities, indoor and outdoor h/w showers and outdoor baths shaded by tropical trees.
The living pavilion is slightly elevated and looks across the surrounding tree canopy of coconut palms and fruit trees which attract many birds. It is open-plan, designed with large glass doors, and consists of: a dining area furnished with an eight-seater table; a fully equipped pantry, and a lounge with built-in seats and plush sofas. There is an infinity pool with pool deck complete with a gazebo and Wi-Fi. Traditional Sri Lankan cuisine is prepared by the in-house cook. He will also do the grocery shopping for you: accompany him to the market and learn how to cook his dishes. Guests are welcome to bring their own alcoholic beverages.
Why We Like It
An excellent hideaway yet only a couple of minutes from Weligama beach.
The journey to Kumara from Colombo’s international airport will take about three hours or take an air taxi. If you are then heading into the hills, we offer competitive rates on a sea plane service between Koggala and Hatton.
