IF Villa is characterized by spaciousness: an open courtyard with a tranquil pool leads into a large living room which has French windows and a wide, pillared veranda on three sides, and the five bedrooms are wide and airy. There are also many cushioned sofas and planter’s chairs scattered around the property, ideal for relaxing on. IF Villa consists of three buildings, the biggest of which houses five modern, luxurious bedrooms which have direct access to the garden – some have sea views. Surrounded by a sweeping green lawn dotted with swaying palms and scented frangipani trees, next to a stunning private beach stretch which is enhanced by a beautiful coral lagoon, this magnificent five-bedroom Dutch-period villa also offers its guests much privacy in beautiful surroundings. Swimming in the lagoon is safe all year round. A staff of six are on hand to tend to your every need, and your chef will take care of all meals, from sumptuous breakfasts to delicious dinners.
Three double rooms, two twins. Double rooms have teak four-poster beds, and all rooms boast antique furniture. Ceiling fans and a/c keep the rooms cool. The modern ensuite bathrooms have showers, twin vanities and towels. Two of the large bedrooms also have an invigorating outdoor shower open to the sky, as well as a walk-in dressing room.
Things to do ?
The cuisine at IF Villa comprises Sri Lankan and Western favorites, including traditional rice and curry and plenty of fresh seafood, as well as pasta, soups and home-made cakes for tea. Delightfully presented, each dish is brimming with flavor. There is also a large BBQ facility and a children’s menu with many non-spicy Western alternatives. Meals are not included in the villa price, so the chef will discuss meal plans with you daily and buy the food to order from the fresh local markets of Galle. Meals are served in the Dining Pavilion in the garden, and there is a seating area on the terrace ideal for pre-dinner drinks or a morning cup of tea. Alcohol is not provided here: it is recommended that you order your preferred alcoholic beverages and non-alcoholic drinks ahead of your arrival.
