The boutique Taru Villas Mawella sits in the middle of Mawella Bay’s near-deserted crescent sand beach, a short way from the town of Tangalle.

Surrounded by lush tropical gardens, the main house has four double rooms while the pool house contains two suites. Colonial in style, the chic breezy rooms feature four poster beds, air conditioning with a scattering of modern art. The master suite has its own private plunge pool.

A lounge, small bar and dining area can be found in the main house, in the latter of which you can enjoy fresh and varied cuisine, such as traditional Sri Lankan dishes, homemade pastries and just-caught seafood. You can also choose to dine on the beach, in the garden or on the veranda.

Aside from relaxing on the beach, you are ideally suited to explore the Sri Lanka’s southern coast. The historic fort town of Tangalle is an easy day trip, as is a safari into Yala National Park or the revered stupa at Tissamaharama. Whale watching is also superb from nearby Mirissa from November to April.
