Malabar Hill


The villas at Malabar Hill boast of panoramic views of the Indian Ocean with its white sands of Weligama Bay and rare Hillside views over an emerald wetland sanctuary. Staying in the accommodations here is like being one with the natural setting, while enjoying the luxuries of timeless design. Taking inspirations from her lifetime of travel in Sri Lanka, designer Lawson Johnston created Malabar Hill as an homage to artisan craftsmanship. You will find reclaimed wooden doors, carved windows, balustrades and locally handmade terracotta roof and floor tiles. The dining spaces, both indoors and under the blue sky, allow you to sit back and unwind as the Malabar Hill staff look after you regally.

The Malabar Hill Experience Coordinators are experts in suggesting things to do in Weligama and nearby areas. You can indulge yourself in a private spa or yoga session, a well-stocked library, a picnic hamper for a day on the lake, a visit to their laid-back haven on the Mirissa beach, The Shack or the local village to enjoy a Temple greeting ceremony.

Client Testimonials

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
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
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had. Everything – from the individual care and attention in planning the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round!
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, 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
Ampersand provided a bespoke and flexible holiday, tailored to my every whim. Their highly professional staff had only one goal which was to arrange an exceptional holiday and some unforgettable experiences in India. I have no hesitation in fully recommending them and they will be the first company I approach in the future - 10/10

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!

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.

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!
