Habaraduwa House
Galle

Top 10s logo 

Habaraduwa House is one of our Ampersand's Top 10 Secret Gems and Top 10 Private Villas in Asia.

Originally built in 2001 but completely re-designed and renovated in 2011 by a leading interior decorator, Habaraduwa House has the pedigree and allure to make it Sri Lanka’s most exceptional beachside villa. Located on a beach near Weligama not far from Galle, this impeccably decorated property has four en-suite bedrooms (two with outdoor showers), a games room, a long swimming pool with chic lounge chairs and a soft sandy beach literally right in front of you. The house has been designed as a series of airy stand-alone buildings, which house the huge living room, flanked on each side by bedrooms and a dining Ambalama (pavilion), all of which face the ocean. There is also a butler, a cook, two housekeeping staff and a pool boy to make sure you and your family or friends are well looked after. Ampersand’s MD, James Jayasundera visited in 2013 and in his opinion Habaraduwa House is now “the best villa in Sri Lanka”.

My favourite thing is to go where I've never been.
Diane Arbus

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
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
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
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
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 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
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
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
