Set on an ocean-front hillock in the idyllic coastal village of Balapitiya, ‘The Sandals’ offers a stylish and reposeful setting for putting down roots, whilst vacaying on soft, golden beaches.

Best Known For

Designed with white-washed walls and plush white sofas, this 5 bed roomed villa brims with a lavish, airy charm. Beyond the tropical gardens, the Indian Ocean slowly dribbles onto the rocks, portraying before one, a dreamy, serendipitous paradise.

The Experience

This luxury beach villa in Balapitiya houses 5 lavish bedrooms, accommodating a total of 10. Named Whelk, Solarium, Cowrie, Nautilus and Mother of Pearl, each suite establishes an affinity to the ocean. All suites are furnished with either a king size bed or spacious twin beds with luxury linen, en suite bathroom, wardrobe and working desk. The 3 upper floor rooms enjoy a sweeping balcony, mesmerizing in ocean views. Softly-painted local arts adorn the walls whilst fresh flower arrangements keep one spun to a dream.

Located on the ground floor, the living and dining areas open out to a see-view terrace. An infinity pool languishes amidst the lush greenery of the tropical garden. The roof-top terrace is perfect for one’s sunning rituals, as well as, sunset gazing. The villa is also furnished with a kitchen, collection of books and board games. From delicious seafood dishes prepared by the in house chef, to star-lit BBQs on the beach, meal choices at this seaside accommodation are indulgent.

Around and About

An idyllic coastal village still untouched by mass tourism, Balapitiya smells like a laid-back seaside dream. Stroll along sweeping silky beaches bordered by modest fishing hamlets and swim in the turquoise waters. Sail through the tranquil Madu Ganga River, taking in its mangroves, little islands full of traditions and tumble-down bird songs. To the south of Balapitiya, lies the artisan village of Ambalangoda, with its aura of traditional masks and puppet shows. The tranquil beaches of Ahungalla and saffron beaches of Kosgoda are other nearby attractions.

‘The Sandals’, a tropical holiday like a precious dream, away from the deadlines. Remember to breathe whilst sunset gazing into the crimson-saffron skies.
