Ranawara, Kahandamodera, near Tangalle

There are few villas in Sri Lanka as expansive, elegant and spectacular as Ranawara, immersed in 23 acres upon Tangalle’s easterly Kahandamodera Beach. The house has seven bedrooms in total, along with sophisticated living and dining areas, a fully equipped kitchen, an air conditioned home cinema and a beautiful swimming pool. Interior areas flow seamlessly onto terraces and verandas edged by pillared walkways, soft stone paving and mirror-still ponds.

This villa is perfect for families and groups looking for absolute privacy and tranquility. Pathways lead to a near-deserted stretch of beach where turtles often come onshore to lay their eggs by moonlight. The sandy beach stretches on for what seems like miles and is great for strolls although swimming in the sea is not possible here. Nearby is the Kalametiya Bird Sanctuary, and Yala and Udawalawe national parks are both within easy reach.

The villa is staffed by an efficient team, including resident British manager and backed up by an on-call management company who can assist with local transport and tours.
