Ivory House

Details

Located a few KM from the historic Galle, Ivory House takes inspiration from the Dutch colonial period combined with a simple, modern contemporary aesthetic – a fusion of East and West. Designed to take maximum advantage of the views over the rice paddies and the cooling breezes off the valley the house has 4 bedroom suites, a large sitting area and indoor / outdoor dining. The 20m pool has a large step with drop off for allowing the energetic to do laps whilst others watch.

Given 5/5 by Jon F from Singapore

“Ivory House is simply superb. The photo's actually don't do the design and quality of the house justice. It is a beautifully designed space. The staff are fantastic - really professional - we felt wonderfully spoilt, and no request was too difficult. The house is in a lovely secluded location overlooking rice paddies, in a small village. Sipping our G&T's in the evening, listening to the sounds of the village intermingled with the sounds of the tropics was truly memorable. Despite the feeling of seclusion, it is easy to get to many beaches and into Galle via tuk tuk. We stayed for around a week, as two families (4 adults and 4 kids -6,8,10,13), and there was more than enough space for us all. I would wholeheartedly recommend Ivory House. If you are looking for a really special villa in this part of Sri Lanka, you've found it. You will not be disappointed.”

Ivory House is absolutely superb. We were a group of 5 girls coming in from all over the world for a girls trip. Eden Villas helped us organise all of our logistics, he was super quick with email and other communication. The house is gorgeous! The pictures do not do it justice ! Its so much more beautiful in person. It offers so much privacy. The house is very well maintained by the staff. The in-house chef served us gourmet food. It was some of the best food we had in Sri Lanka. If you are planning a trip to Galle, please consider staying here, you will have a great stay!”

Everything at the house was absolutely perfect.

The villa is beautiful, and the staff is very friendly and helpful, especially Sunil and Soranga. They really made us feel at home. We had a wonderful trip.

We had a wonderful time at Ivory House thank you. Each and every member of staff looked after us quite beautifully. The house was perfectly kept and looked after too, as was the lovely pool and garden.

We loved Sunil’s food – It was exceptionally good and he was very happy to cook lots of different Sri Lankan recipes for us every day. We had some exceptionally delicious breakfasts, and he was kind enough to teach me lots of recipes, which I can’t wait to make here at home. What a delightful, charming man he is. He very kindly bought me a hopper pan and we had egg hoppers and seeni symbol for breakfast this morning!

We couldn’t have enjoyed our stay at Ivory House more, or been looked after better. Thank you!

Given 5/5 by D Sachnabel from the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland

It is with a longing look back that we left Sri Lanka and its "Ivory House". The past two weeks are something we will remember every single second of - we quite forgot where we came from!
From Sunil the chef's mouth watering, exceptional cooking - which rivals any top London restaurant - to Suranga the house boy's five star service, we have been treated like royalty and can't express the gratitude we have for turning what is usually a dull and dreary January into an exotic feast for the senses. Talking of Sunil's cooking, if you have the chance to get in the kitchen with him, do! He is only too happy to teach you anything you may wish to learn about Sri Lankan cuisine; and don't be shy about asking Suranga to organise things like whale watching, a tuc tuc to the glorious, golden beaches or even a heavenly massage. Nothing is too much of an ask for him.
Special thanks must go to Kelum and Thnuja - the gardner and room lady - for constantly endeavouring our stay was as seamless and paradise-like as possible.
With lizards, monkeys, kingfishers and chipmunks to view in their natural habitat, "Ivory House" has been one of our most memorable holidays and though we were sad to leave, we did so happy, incredibly well rested, with full bellies and full hearts.

Thank You!!

Given 5/5 by A & B Schnabel from Belgium

The villa has everything going for it in terms of design, facilities, location, etc but in our opinion the real success factor is due to the 4 primary staff. They all fulfil what one would expect their job descriptions to require but in our opinion it is they who deliver the real Sri Lankan holiday experience. We came away with such a positive view of the country due, in large measure, to their contributions. Sunil and Sura are, of course, the main players but even the non English-speaking maid and gardner clearly demonstrate that they have fully absorbed the customer satisfaction culture
