Watch your tropical vacation dreams unfold at The Saffron House. In this holiday home, you will find a sprawling tropical garden measuring three acres, set sight on stunning ocean views, gain access to a rocky seafront that is yours to explore, and enjoy gusts of salty sea breezes all day.
A total of four double bedrooms offers accommodation for eight. Cool and airy, the rooms feature polished concrete floors, contemporary furniture crafted from local teak, pillowy beds and fine linen. Two master bedrooms are set in the north side of the courtyard, and each contains capacious bathrooms with open air spaces. Both rooms face the the courtyard, and overlook a picturesque garden.
The Courtyard bedroom lies at the west side of the courtyard, and offers sweeping views of the lawn and coast. The Sea bedroom, situated close to the shores, offers a high level of privacy and intimacy. A private terrace extends out from the room, providing a cosy spot for couples to spend a quiet evening together.
The lush, emerald garden is a wonder to explore. Perfect for taking leisurely walks, a stroll through the grounds of the garden will bring to sight plenty of tropical foliage and flora. Venture out of the main lawn, and you will find a coconut grove sloping down to a dramatic rocky shoreline. This coastal area is yours to explore; watch the mesmerising sunsets over the Dondra lighthouse during the early evening, and catch sight of fishing lights beaming out to the ocean at night. The villa wraps around a spacious swimming pool. It is the perfect spot for a mid-day dip to cool down from the afternoon heat. A handful of loungers flank the pool, offering a comfortable seat for holidaymakers keen on adding a sun kissed glow to their skin.
Contemporary and traditional design elements blend together seamlessly in the finely-appointed living spaces of the villa. Hand-built furniture, hand-finished floors and simple tropical architecture are found alongside modern pieces in the common living spaces and bedrooms. When it comes to mealtimes, expect nothing less than a spread of delicacies, even if you are too lazy to lift a single finger. The experienced in-house chef, Chris, boasts a wide repertoire in the kitchen, and will readily whip up a variety of dishes ranging from local Sri Lankan fare to Western mains.
The Saffron House is a full service property. Housekeeping service, personal guest service, security service, laundry service and welcome drinks are included with your stay.

A beautiful home in a stunning location. The care, attention and affection from Chris and her staff was outstanding. A great place for a family or a group of friends. Ideal home to recuperate and to explore the area at your own pace. A great example of Sri Lankan hospitality. The ingredients used for cooking are fresh and locally purchased. The home is well maintained. We will always return to Saffron House. We had a splendid stay and miss Chris and her team very much. Paul, thank you for all the information you extended - you were very responsive to our questions. Appreciate it very much
I stayed at The Saffron house with friends for 2 weeks in February. Everything about the experience was supurb! The luxurious, modern accommodation, the divine Sri Lankan cuisine, the lovely, efficient staff, the spectacular views, the peaceful ambience, the tranquil garden all rounded off with the resident wild life. Chris and Jeremy went the extra mile to make our visit memorable and fun. We were so impressed with the whole experience that we felt moved to entertain the staff with a thank you and goodbye song. They were even all polite enough to laugh and applaud enthusiastically. Thank you so much, we would love to return again!
The Saffron House is absolutely fabulous. Everything about it has been so well organised that no one could stay there and not have the best holiday ever! The view of the ocean, the tropical gardens, the elegant, stylish and yet oh so comfortable accommodation, authentic home cooked Sti Lankan food and staff, who just can't do enough for you, all combine to make it one of the most memorable holidays we have ever had. If you don't go you're missing a treat!
