A Place to Live The Life
Eraeliya Villas and Gardens brings you happy vibes and Sri Lanka beauty. A place where you can relax in elegance. ‘Eraeliya’ is translated from Sinhala, meaning “The light of the sun”, as the sunlight pours from the sky, the ocean, the leaves in the garden and the smiles of the locals of Sri Lanka.
Eraeliya began as a single house with a hundred years of history. More dwellings were built, based on the work of Geoffrey Bawa, one of the greatest architects in Asia. His work focuses on the interaction between nature and architecture.
On the 2 acres of beachfront land, are 9 luxurious en-suite bedrooms in 5 unique villas. All guests have access to the large infinity swimming pool and the spa. You can enjoy the tranquillity and peace of your own villa and there is always a secluded spot to relax in the gardens. The villas sleep 2 to 8 people and have views over the garden or ocean.
The Villas are located on Jungle Beach in Weligama, which is considered as the most beautiful and cleanest in the area with an excellent surf spot. Jungle Beach is a unique reef break with a left, more suited for experienced surfers. The long flatter right is more suitable for beginners. The surf is most consistent from October to April. From the Villas, you can easily check the surf. If you never surfed before, it might be better to start on the main beach of Weligama, which is a 10-minute drive away. There are several surf schools and we can arrange transport for you.
Jungle Beach is a great spot for snorkelling and we can arrange yoga lessons at the villa for you. You can spot blue whales swimming along the shores, visit the sea turtle nursery and discover the Ceylon tea and spices plantations closeby. Within a half-hour, you will find all the most significant sights of the southern part of the island, like Buddhist temples, the Unesco World Heritage Site of Galle and jungle or lake safari tours.
In the Spa Pavillon, you can enjoy wellness treatments, a professional massage and Ayurveda aromatherapy. The villa manager, staff and Chef Sha, will make sure your stay is as comfortable, cosy and pleasant as possible.
