This is Sahanaya, our home away from home a mere 1 hour drive from the Airport or Colombo and by the calm waters of the Bolgoda lake. We take great pride in it and have designed and furnished it with love and care. We invite you to partake of the many pleasures of this magical escape surrounded by nature in complete privacy with the entire villa at your disposal. All we ask is that you treat it as we have, with love and respect, so that others too may avail themselves of all it has to offer.

Boendet
Away from the hustle and bustle of the city life escape to this idyllic villa by the lake. Aptly named Sahanaya (peaceful relaxation in Sinhala), it is situated in the midst of rubber estates and wild shrubbery. Located just minutes (by vehicle) from the peaceful and laid-back city of Bandaragama, as you drive to Sahanaya keep an eye out for peacocks that sometimes walk along the road leading to the villa.
You enter the villa through a private parking area with ample space. As you pass through the antique doors take in the sweet fragrance of the flowers of the large Araliya tree planted in the center of the indoor garden. Pass through the verandah and enter the comfortably furnished main hall adorned with African and South East Asian artwork. You will then be treated to a gorgeous view of the gardens with its many Araliya trees and other exotic plants and private pool, and of the lake, through the expansive, floor-to-ceiling windows. These windows are designed and placed in such a way as to maximize the internal circulation of the breeze that often blows across the villa in the afternoons and evenings. The garden leads to the lake and includes a deck with 8 deck chairs under the shade of a fully grown Goraka tree from which a stunning 180-degree view of the unquestionably beautiful Bolgoda Lake awaits you. Bolgoda is an oasis for a plethora of native birds. In the mornings and afternoons several ducks and other birds wade across the lake, and kingfishers dive into the shallow waters in search of prey. At twilight birds fly in from various directions to nest in the large bushes by the banks of the river and treat us to the melody of their chatter and song. Enjoy a delicious barbecue with the grill and utensils provided on a clear night as you gaze in awe at the myriad stars that fill the night sky.
The calm and tranquil environment is ideal for anyone seeking sahanaya: engage in yoga or meditation; relax in the pool; sunbathe on any of the sunbeds available; sit on the deck and read any of the many books that line the racks of the small library upstairs; watch cable television; enjoy a game of ping pong or play any of the board games on offer; go for a stroll outside on a cool evening (if you’re lucky you might even spot a peacock trying to serenade a peahen); or enjoy a siesta in any of the five finely furnished and spacious bedrooms, each with its own private bath and shower. The cities of Colombo and Galle are 1 hour away by car. The Ceylon Yatch Club is on Bolgoda Lake and can be reached in less than an hour. The marvelous beaches of Hikkaduwa, Unawatuna, Mirissa, Weligama are all within 1.5 hour drive; where you can snorkel, go whale watching, windsurfing or swimming. For the more adventurous, the Sri Lanka Carting Circuit—the only purpose-builtcarting circuit (recognized as the finest in Asia)—is only 13km.
Bed linen and toiletries are provided. There are 5 fully furnished bedrooms and 5½ baths with showers. Facilities provided include cable television, a private pool, a small library, a ping pong table, sun beds, deck chairs, assorted board games, barbecue grill and utensils.

Bandaragama, Western Province, Sri Lanka

This peaceful haven like villa is situated just an hour away from the Bandaranaike International Airport, making it the perfect place to rest and relax after your long and tiresome flight. It is also a mere one hour from the city of Colombo. There are many destinations on your bucket list that can be covered within a short period of time like Hikkaduwa, Galle, Mirissa and Weligama in the Southern coast which are known for their exotic beaches, surfing, whale watching, snorkeling and most entertaining nightlife. You can even head down to the turtle conservation projects in Kosgoda which is less than an hour away. A visit to the cultural triangle is also possible but would be approximately 3.5 hours away (if you were to disregard the traffic). For the more adventurous, the Sri Lanka Carting Circuit—the only purpose-built carting circuit (recognized as the finest in Asia)—is only 13km away. Cricket
