Thalduwa Island Villas is hidden amidst thick foliage alongside the Goviyapana river off Sri Lanka's southern coastal surfing town of Ahangama. It consists of four elegant Dutch-styled villas: Karmel, Gabrielle, Vador and Sisila. Occupying a large coconut grove, the villas are adequately spaced out, surrounded by tropical gardens providing ample space and a sense of privacy for guests.
Although similarly designed, each of the four villas incorporate different soothing colour tones, tasteful interiors and hand-picked furniture to differentiate the villas and ultimately create a stylish yet comfortable holiday getaway. In addition to the well-appointed bedrooms, each villa has a private swimming pool, spacious living, lounge and terrace area and kitchen.
These villas can be booked by the room, as a villa or in its entirety if it’s a large group.
