Kalametiya, Tangalle, Southern Province, Sri Lanka

Ranawara is a stunning south facing beachfront private villa created by the owner for family, friends, and guests to enjoy a very special experience on the south coast of Sri Lanka.

Set in a private 23-acre estate, the gardens flow onto the soft white sandy beach that stretches as far as one can see.

The large main villa provides a choice of several living spaces.

The spacious ground floor offers an indoor sitting room in a neutral, soothing color scheme with comfortable sofas and French windows leading to the pool.

For guests who want a 360-degree view of the expansive gardens and the Indian Ocean, the first-floor sitting room would be an ideal setting.

Villa Ranawara also has a fully equipped library with comfortable sofas and arm chairs and a cinema room on the first floor of the main villa.

There are three bedroom suites on the ground floor along with the formal double height palatial sitting room and library.

Two further suites, the TV/cinema room and an open-sided sitting on the first floor allows guests to engage with the spectacular 360degree views of the gardens, lakes, and ocean.

Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka is an island nation south of India in the Indian Ocean. Its diverse landscapes range from rainforest and arid plains to highlands and sandy beaches. It’s famed for its ancient Buddhist ruins, including the 5th-century citadel Sigiriya, with its palace and frescoes. The city of Anuradhapura, Sri Lanka’s ancient capital, has many ruins dating back more than 2,000 years.

Planning your Sri Lanka Experience
Depending on the number of guests arriving at once, a variety of vehicle options are available including saloon cars, 4 wheel drives, and people carriers, as well as fixed wing sea planes and helicopters.
Sometimes the simpler things in life provide the greatest pleasure. Guided bike tours through the lush green paddy fields give a glimpse of an often unseen part of Sri Lanka. Marvel at kingfishers and bee-eaters, glimpse the daily rituals of village life or just enjoy the cool breeze of free-wheeling through a magnificent landscape. This has been a longtime top excursion.
There’s nothing better after a long journey than delicious smells coming from the kitchen and a few bottles chilling in the fridge. We will send you the villa menus and work with the best suppliers to produce a fantastic collection of wines and champagnes to complement any palette. Wines need to be paid for in advance of arrival.
An intimate front row seat of the unique Kandyan Dancers – expect back-flips, drums, masks and fire display – all from the comfort of the villa. Most villas have a shrine and guests can benefit from a visit by Monks from a nearby Temple to conduct a blessing for a gentle and moving experience.
From December to April Whales and dolphins, including the mighty Blue Whale, can be seen off the southern coast. Seeing one of the largest animals on earth in one of the most agreeable temperatures is a truly amazing experience. We always recommend a private boat so that guests can swim or snorkel before coming ashore.
Udewalawa and Yala are the big two and offer fantastic game viewing of Leopards, Elephants, Buffalo & Sloth Bears. For birders, SL is a dream destination. Kalametiya and Bandula National Park are a must and some 197 different species of bird will stop here throughout the year.
Setting out from Mirissa harbor to enjoy the sunset from the comfort of a luxury catamaran has been one of our top-rated experiences. For 3 hours embrace the joys of the ocean, sipping a sundowner or snorkeling. This is an unforgettable experience and one your clients will treasure forever.
