Take a look inside Villa Armitage Hill

Surrender your senses and succumb to the seductive charms of Villa Armitage Hill. Once a planter’s home, this historic villa goes back by more than 200 years and has featured prominently in many architecture and guidebooks. It has been subsequently renovated over the last 30 years by the famous architect Kerry Hill and is now in top condition. The house remains a true marvel in its design and architecture. The present owners of this stunning property have maintained many of the villa’s original designs and façade while introducing modern amenities for the luxury of the guests who stay here. Rarely will you find such a wonderful home in the country.

Armitage Hill today is a gorgeous 5-bedroom holiday rental on the famous southwestern coast of Sri Lanka very close to Galle. Poised on a hilltop, the villa offers panoramic views of a lush forested landscape. Not just the views and the classic elegance, this holiday home also offer resort-quality amenities that will make your stay here luxurious. The villa manager, housekeeping team, and professional chef will look after your every need. You don’t have to do anything. Just sit back, relax, and enjoy the views.

The villa has a fantastic location in the southwestern part of the island, between Wakwella and Hapugala. With the hills, valleys, and forests all around, the villa certainly seems like a nature recluse. But it is still close to many attractions. The famous UNESCO-listed Galle Fort is only 7.5 kilometers away. The nearest surfing spot is at a distance of 8.5 kilometers.

A very special place Armitage Hill is one of the most special places I have stayed. Stunning design, incredible grounds, amazing pool and lovely staff. Food great too! (particularly the banana flambe). It was such a privilege to experience the home of the late Kerry Hill, having long-admired the Aman hotels he designed.
