Nisala Arana is located in the village of Kommala, about 10 minutes’ drive from Bentota Resort. Bentota Beach is about 10 minutes’ drive from your villa, and other noteworthy attractions in the vicinity include Galle Fort, Brief Garden, Warakagoda Temple, Richmond Castle and Mirissa.

The fortified town of Galle is a historic gem dating back to 1588. Within the town lie charming streets lined with stunning colonial buildings, churches and a wide ranging variety of restaurants, cafes and boutiques. Walking or cycling tours are a great way to discover the attraction.

Brief Garden, developed by Ceylonese landscape artist Bevis Bawa boasts beautifully manicured grounds and a calm, atmospheric setting. The stately Richmond Castle is worth a visit for its Edwardian architecture, expansive garden and informative tour.

While Warakagoda Temple once served as a palace fortress, it is now a tourist attraction and heritage site. A devale, temple, guard stones and moat fill the grounds, and the highlight here are the colourful frescoes peppered throughout the complex.

Mirissa is a must-visit for wildlife lovers; the months of November and March are ideal for whale watching trips, as blue whales and sperm whales can be viewed just off the coast. Round out your trip with an afternoon of relaxation upon the picture-perfect shores of Mirissa Beach.
