Wadduwa, West Coast
Situated amidst three acres of lush tropical gardens leading to the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean, Reef Villa is a seven-bedroom, luxurious boutique hotel that is perfect for families as well as couples looking for a romantic escape. The south-west coastal village of Wadduwa is only two and a half hours from the International Airport which makes Reef Villa a convenient first or last stop on your holiday in Sri Lanka. Reef Villa is an elegant blend of Sri Lankan manor house architecture and colonial grandeur. Antique Calcutta four-poster beds and ceiling-fixed punkah fans – previously used by the East India Company — are all tastefully blended with vibrant colors and contemporary touches creating an exotic ambience.
