Full accommodation information

Located in Waduwwa, approximately 2½ hours from Colombo, Reef Sri Lanka is a gorgeous, boutique beachfront property.

The unusual entrance, through tropical foliage and past lily ponds, gives the impression of entering a private home.

The seven rooms are located in the main house and set amongst the foliage. Each room is incredibly spacious and elegantly furnished along a Colonial Indian theme with coloured silks and antique Indian pieces. The bathroom is as big as the bedroom and features an amazing freestanding granite bathtub, complete with champagne glass holder, book rest and separate rain shower.

The main house is set back from the beach so there is plenty of space for relaxing, as well as a small swimming pool. The food at Reef Sri Lanka is mouth-watering as are the pre-dinner cocktails! For the active, there is a tennis court and jogging track. Spa treatments are also available for those who prefer pampering.

For those seeking individual attention, understated elegance and the thrill of discovering something very different Reef Sri Lanka is highly recommended.
