Duwa Villas
Weligama

The Duwa Villas are a well kept secret which occupy the entire Thal Duwa, meaning Palm Island, located a short drive from Ahangama. The Dutch colonial style villas have chic interiors and combine local materials with contemporary design. Each of the spacious villas consist of  four en-suite bedrooms, living and dining areas, a butlers pantry and a private swimming pool. Verdant tropical gardens surround the villas, providing privacy for their guests, and are scattered with coconut palms, cinnamon and fruit trees. There is a main kitchen where the chefs prepare traditional Sri Lankan dishes, as well as Western cuisine, which is served in your own villa. Alternatively, guests can do their own cooking and learn from the chefs who conduct lessons and share traditional recipes. Guests can enjoy the secluded island by going on a canoe ride along the peaceful river, stand-up paddle-boarding, fishing and bird-watching amongst other activities. The Duwa Villas also offer a wide variety of beauty treatments and private yoga lessons.

Travelling is like flirting with life. It's like saying, 'I would stay and love you, but I have to go; this is my station.
Lisa St. Aubin de Teran

Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
We have been on expensive and luxurious holidays in the past, but the service and communication Ampersand has provided has far exceeded those offered by other agencies.
- Susan Ford, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
