Beyond the brilliant fusions of colorful buildings and magnificently curious aromas that line the streets of Colombo, beyond the impressive British-influenced castles and Buddhist temples, and miles from the spectacular heritage sites sits a most brilliant oasis where exotic gardens run beautifully rampant, where the ocean shimmers, and where reflection pools and lily ponds create a most romantic setting. This luxurious haven is otherwise known as Reef Villa.

Here, service is effortless, design is luminous, and their 7 exclusive palatial suites are luxurious, enveloping guests in an elegant blend of soaring ceilings, magnificently decorative floors, Indian-inspired hand crafted furnishings and overall fabulous 19th century British Colonial grandeur. The 400-thread-count sheets are as cozy and blissful as the beautiful verandahs, and as spectacular as the en-suite bathrooms complete with overwhelmingly stunning hand-carved granite bathtub and vanity, gorgeous rain shower an exquisite selection of pampering Ayurvedic products. There’s even a personalized mini-bar. Try the Nelum Suite for ultimate privacy- gorgeous Burmese teak wood, significant space to breathe, and the glimmering Indian Ocean views aren’t bad either….

Round out this utterly serene experience by an extended stay in the Refresh Spa where revitalizing treatments are a way of life. Body pampering in the form of an incredible sandalwood/lime/tamarind exfoliating scrub or hot stone therapy treatment are best accompanied by champagne or fresh, cool brewed Ceylon tea. Stunning Sri Lankan splendor.
