Nilwella Palms is a six-bedroom beach villa in Nilwella, next-door to lively Hiriketiya Bay and little-visited Dikwella Beach, a quiet coastal escape just moments from an abundance of fantastic surfing spots. The beach stretch in front of the villa is almost completely deserted, so guests can enjoy peaceful morning and evening strolls with nothing disturbing the silence but the sound of the waves. Designed to reflect Geoffrey Bawa’s architectural style ‘tropical modernism’, the blurring of indoor and outdoor spaces, everything about Nilwella Palms encourages guests to embrace the laidback rhythm of this area: relax in the open-plan, open-sided living space which is cooled by the sea breeze and furnished with a vast sofa and dining table; retreat to your sea-view room and take a nap in the exceptionally comfortable bed, and recline on a sun lounger by the swimming pool in the garden.
There are six double bedrooms, four upper-floor and two ground-floor, housed in two interconnecting buildings. The ground-floor rooms open straight out to the garden, whilst the upper rooms have a small balcony with beautiful beach views. Great care has been taken to ensure that guests have a comfortable stay, with each room boasting a high-quality mattress, soft linen, drying rack, a/c and a large ensuite bathroom with powerful shower, hot water and twin sinks. Each room also has a guide to the surrounding area which includes restaurant recommendations, activity ideas and so on.
The in-house chef will be happy to put together local dishes or your favorites from home.
