Elysium

Details

This magnificent beach villa sits discreetly amongst the best in Asia - in close proximity to Galle Fort and all the other attractions of the region. Discount for August

From the first moment you enter this tropical gem, situated directly on a sandy beach and turquoise waters, you find yourself in a tranquil garden oasis the likes of which one very rarely sees on the coast.

 

Spread out over an acre, Elysium boasts a series of exceptionally manicured and scented gardens, a wonderful lotus pond, elegant living areas and plenty to keep guests entertained, indoors and outdoors alike.

 

Accommodation comprises four stylish suites, each housed in their own sizeable chalet with individual terraces and gardens. All the suites are air-conditioned and en-suite with twin vanities.  There is also a spacious fifth suite that has been designed with young families in mind hosting a king size double and 2 bunk beds (sleeping 4).

 

The main building comprises a formal dining room and home cinema on the ground floor and a vast formal living room upstairs, with a library and study area, surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows which offer panoramic views of the Indian ocean and Sri Lanka¹s finest sunsets.

 

Unusually, this property also comes with a fully equipped and air-conditioned gym as well as a spa room for a post-workout massage. WiFi covers the whole property.

 

There is a 40-foot swimming pool, surrounded by sun loungers, which is perfect for strenuous laps. Perhaps more importantly, there is a spacious shallow area for children and adults alike to laze away an afternoon in the pool. An elegant poolside pavilion provides an ideal place for meals and quiet afternoon reading and snoozing.

 

The property has direct and private beach access and seasonally safe sea swimming is just a short stroll down the beach. One can occasionally see stilt fisherman perched in a reef nearby.

 

The covered beach pavilion, along with the elevated beachside deck, which directly overlooks the sea provide the perfect venue for all manner of uses whether it be sunset cocktails, dining under the stars or simply topping up one’s tan.

 

This is the ideal haven for a luxury beach holiday and comes fully staffed with chefs, butlers and stewards all working to ensure a spectacular stay.

Given 5/5 by Jacqui from the United Arab Emirates

We stayed as a large group at the Elysium Villa near Galle. The Villa was beautiful, the staff very attentive, the food wonderful and the location was great.

Although you can't swim on the beach directly in front of the villa if the waves are big there are areas to swim fairly close by and the beach is beautiful.

Each of the villas rooms are in a cottage of their own set in a large garden. Everywhere is beautifully decorated with lots of great touches and places for lounging. The kids bunk room was a very cool place for the kids to hang out.

We could not fault the villa or the organization of the villa agency and were certainly go again.

An all round terrific experience! Tom and Jack at Eden Villas were superb in helping our huge party of 10 people plus baby get organised, patiently responding to endless emails, arranging airport transfers and ensuring a seamless holiday for us all.
Elysium provided us with a magical experience - it's absolutely stunning and beautifully appointed and, through the gates just metres away, is the ocean (so you can hear the sea if you are in one of the two ocean facing rooms)! Elysium is your own personal 6 star hotel, with a marvellous staff - we ate out every other night, so that we could sample the local venues, but none of them measured up to the dinners served up by the Elysium team. They set up the tables in the pool house, and once in the ocean house, and provided mouth watering meals which we agreed with them that morning. The breakfasts were huge and set us up for the day - once, we opted for the SriLankan breakfast (highly recommended!).
The gardens are simply stunning and beautifully maintained by the staff, who do everything quietly before we were even up and about.
The staff were superb - the happier we were, the happier they were! Nothing was too much trouble and everything was done with grace and kindness.
Truly a faultless holiday! Just one thing to bear in mind if you are thinking of renting Elysium - unlike most villa rentals, where you expect to cater for yourself to some degree, do a bit of food shopping, make your own drinks or grab some nibbles, Elysium is not really like that, and all the better for it … it's a personal private 6 star hotel but somehow, it still manages to feel like your own home!

Brilliant!

Amazing holiday and fab villa. Staff were very helpful and good with the baby. Food was excellent if a bit on the expensive side.

EDEN VILLAS:
By and large the menu price at Elysium is prepared to cover costs and the owner does not seek to make a profit from it. Perhaps occasionally things can seem expensive but living here I do appreciate the quality of the food and consider it excellent value for money.

We loved our stay at Elysium. The staff were amazing - we were so well looked after by all of them. We really enjoyed our tuk tuk rides with Neolanthe. The food was superb and the villa was very comfortable.
We loved all the wildlife in the garden, especially the chipmunks and a heron which came everyday.
We would love to come back to this beautiful place.

We stayed at this villa for 9 nights over Christmas and new year 2015/16. It was absolutely perfect. The location is fantasitc - close enough to galle but far enough from all the busy tourist hot spots. The property is extremely spacious and the layout ( with the house closest to the road and the villas at the front) means you do not hear any of the street noise (big bonus along the coast). The layout also allows to be on the beach but secluded enough that it feels like you are the only group in the country. The staff are super friendly and although always nearby, they do not impose at all.We tried many of the top rated food places around the area (including Galle Fort) but the food here topped them all. Ask Chaminda (the chef) to cook up his rice and curries and you will not be sorry. So sad to leave but happy we got to experience Elysium. Perfect.

As well travelled, with very high standards, global executives, Elysium has exceed our expectations!
The Property has proven to be one of the most joyful family vacations we have ever had!
From the very beginning of our process, Eden Villas has been helpful, detail oriented and efficient in organizing a three family, twelve
persons holiday for us here at Elysium. Jack Eden has delivered “as promised” a luxury vacation for us in 2016.

The grounds are immaculately kept, the show piece pool is clean and refreshing. The private rooms are comfortable and spacious. You wake up to sound of surf and beautiful
sunrise beaming through the curtains. The gym facilities are well thought out and convenient. We had daily massages, yoga organized right on the grounds…heavenly!

I would never have guested that fine foods for every taste would be possible here in Sri Lanka, but the Elysium Chef is a true master! Having travelled throughout Asia, Europe, South Africa, Mexico and of course the United States I cannot remember a better staff experience such as Elysium. Kind, gentle, wonderful with our teens…these gentleman belong
in the finest five-star hotels! Under the supervision of the General Manager, Sanjeewa, the team are exceptional.

I would highly recommend the Elysium to all my family and friends. Sincerely and with many thanks, Michael Luevano
