The Last House


The Last House With its incredibly private location on one of Sri Lanka's most unspoilt and picturesque beaches, this stylish villa is the perfect escape. Aptly named, it is the architectural swan song of eminent Sri Lankan architect Geoffrey Bawa. The villa consists of five beautiful bedrooms that overlook the glittering Indian Ocean or the small adjoining lagoon visited by exotic birds such as kingfishers and herons. The layout of the villa is shaped like a horseshoe and divided into a number of wings with kitchen, living rooms and courtyard bedrooms on either side of an inviting emerald green swimming pool designed to offer privacy to groups of friends and generations of families.

The interior of this villa is striking; whitewashed walls contrast with distressed blue window and door frames that give it even more of a 'beach house' appeal. Bright cushions, vivid bedspreads and temple wall hangings enhance the cream-washed arches while large glass and teak tables are placed atop rush mats. Bawa's influence is reflected in the cool cement floors and pillared verandahs that frame intriguing views of the sea.

The in-house staff of five will pamper you with ease and provide for any need you may have. The cuisine is particularly fresh and delicious. The swimming pool is privately situated to the back of the house while the elegant two-acre gardens have grassy 'child-friendly' lawns. A little gate opens from the garden onto the long, beautiful stretch of sandy beach which is enhanced by coral pools that offer safe swimming year-round. As the villa is so magically secluded and spacious it is ideal for family gatherings and friendly reunions.

Each of the rooms is well-proportioned, airy and light and has views of either the ocean or the lagoon. The decor is simple yet stylish and the rooms are elegantly furnished with ceiling fans, mosquito nets, antique furniture, crisp cotton sheets and brightly coloured bedspreads. Modern bathrooms have hot and cold water and are fitted with either a traditional bathtub or shower.
