Established in 1864, Templeberg Villa pays respect to its Dutch Colonial past with statement antiques but also manages to reference modern day touches with a number of soft furnishings and pieces from the owner’s private collection, taken from travels through Scandinavia, South East Asia, Australia and New Zealand.
Ten staff, including private cook, gardeners, housekeepers, house boys and masseurs are on hand to ensure any stay is memorable and enjoyable. They are all fluent in English, Swedish and Sinhala.
All rooms are complete with antique four poster beds, canopied mosquito nets, antique chairs and wardrobes and private bathrooms. Unlimited fee Wi-Fi is available throughout the property meaning you can stay connected while relaxing on a sun lounger in the gardens.
– Guided walking tours to the neighbouring Buddhist Temple.
– For the less adventurous, there is the daily ritual of in-house massage performed by Achula.
The property operates as a Bed and Breakfast if rented by the room or a private villa rental service when all rooms are booked.
