Arriving at Redcliff Villa after a gentle drive, you are immediately struck by the privacy and peace of this serene seaside location on Sri Lanka south coast. Throughout the villa modern architecture is balanced with Asian objet d'art carrefully selected from around the region.
Redcliff was once the country home of a former president of Sri Lanka, the late J.R. Jayawardene. This iconic villa was designed by Sri Lanka's architecture guru, the late Geoffrey Bawa with open sided living spaces where you can relax and take in breathtaking views of the Indian Ocean. Living and dining is in an open sided area on the ground floor opening out to the gardens, cliffs and the sea beyond. The four bedrooms are located on a level above and below the living area. There is a nice swimming pool here, and just below the cliffs, are two secluded beaches. The beach is reached via a series of steps going downhill.
The villa consist of four double bedrooms of which two are located a few steps above the living and dining area; and two more bedrooms are at a level below.
The upper floor bedrooms: These two rooms open on to a small lounge area and have sea views across the open plan living room. Bedrooms are furnished with double beds fitted with mosquito netting. Overhead fans and the ocean breeze that comes through the windows help to keep these rooms cool. Ensuite bathrooms have h/w open air showers.
The lower level bedrooms: There is one a/c double room and a twin room which is non-a/c at this level. These two bedrooms share one bathroom and opens out on to the side gardens and the sea beyond.
In keeping with Bawa's architectural style of erasing boundaries between the inside and out, the living and dining areas open out to the sprawling gardens, the surrounding red cliffs, and spectacular views of the Indian Ocean. The living and dining area is furnished with lounge chairs and a dining table that are Bawa's original designs. There is a small lounge at a level below which is equipped with satellite TV, fridge, and a small pantry with filtered water, crockery and cutlery. Redcliffs has a housekeeper and a cook who will prepare tasty meals to your liking. Sri Lankan cuisine, BBQs and snacks are available prepared with fresh seafood purchased from the local fisherman. Guests are welcome to bring their own alcoholic beverages.
