IF Villa

Details

Just as Rudyard Kipling’s timeless poem ‘If’ inspires, so this villa namesake, soothes.

As soon as you walk along the tropical garden path and through the front door you can soak in the generous surroundings taking your first glimpse of the beautiful turquoise sea. The villa overlooks a reef protected lagoon that glistens in the sun light you are immediately put at ease. 

The soft sandy beach is directly accessible from the villa and is one of the island’s finest; typically deserted, it’s washed by a sea that’s superb for swimming as it’s protected by an offshore coral reef.

The elegant design of IF was inspired by sketches of beautiful Dutch colonial buildings in Barbara Sansoni’s classic book Viharas and Verandas of Ceylon. 

The interior design echoes the villa’s simplistic build & suitably equips it with only the most essential furnishings, many of which are strikingly beautiful Dutch period antiques. 

There are 5 bedroom suites - 3 queen & 2 twin -  each with their own ensuite bathrooms, comfortably sleep 10 people. 

Luxury comes in the form of space in the large garden, the huge living room and a selection of spaces where company or quietude can delightfully be found; the cushion-topped sofa on the ocean terrace is without a doubt one of Sri Lanka’s most splendid spots for savouring sensational sundowners beside the sea.

The breezy wide verandah surrounding the living area makes an ideal dining space where meals are served by our friendly, agreeable staff. 

The villa’s competent chef with his Sri Lankan and European dishes created with fresh fruit, vegetables and seafood of Sri Lanka, will tempt the moist discerning palette. The seafood is some of the best you will eat anywhere in the world.

IF Villa can be sociable or serene, depending upon the occasion. A favourite with families, children will adore the villa’s spacious garden & the lagoon that can be swum in year-round. Serenity seekers will adore its privacy and seclusion. 

The villa is located closer to a generous selection of shops, restaurants & attractions
if you can be prised from your sun bed to step outdoors or just to snorkel amongst the tropical fish in the coral lagoon at your doorstep.

Given 4/5 by Richard Clarke from Oman

The staff are fantastic and pamper you non-stop, the house and in particular the garden are exceptional. The beach is fantastic for swimming and good for kids too. We squeezed 3 families all with kids into the villa and never for a moment felt crowded,
