Thank you for your interest in our villas. We look forward to speaking with you!
Villa Velmarie is a beautiful boutique villa with six bedrooms and a huge tropical garden located in the Southern part of Sri Lanka and just a two minute walk from the picturesque Beruwala beach. The villa was designed by Mr Dudly Vas, blending historic colonial sophistication with tropical charm and modern luxuries. Villa Velmarie is the perfect holiday home for large groups of friends or families wanting to holiday together in peaceful private tropical haven and it is also great for holding special events such as Yoga retreats or weddings.
Villa Velmarie features six air-conditioned bedroom suites overlooking the lush green tropical surroundings and four of them also enjoy a great view over the glistering swimming pool. The rooms are designed with a perfect blend of old style charm and modern comforts. The rooms features large double beds for a perfect night sleep and spacious terrazzo bathrooms. Each room has a private veranda where you can slowly wake up with a cup of freshly brewed coffee in the morning, enjoying the wonderful tropical surroundings of the garden before plunging into the refreshing water of the pool.
In the expansive garden grow mature tropical trees alongside lush exotic greenery, surrounding the manicured lawn and the inviting swimming pool that sparkles in the heart of the estate. Around the pool, on the natural stone sun-deck, there are sunbeds for those wanting to catch a tan while gazing at the swaying palms towering in the clear blue sky. The garden is also great for practising yoga or even following yoga classes to the sounds of nature in your own private slice of paradise, perhaps followed by a rejuvenating traditional massage. The hanging chairs make perfect tropical chill out spots for relaxing with a good book before the garden sea food barbecue starts beneath the breathtaking starlit sky.
The single storey living pavilion has a classy and sophisticated feel, decorated with beautiful antique furniture descending from the Dutch colonial times along with oriental carpets and tasteful artwork. The wall-mounted flat-screen TV adds a modern touch, entertaining young and old on a cosy in-villa evening. The breezy black and white tiled veranda is furnished with seating areas where you can share a bottle of wine together while watching the kids play in the garden.
The staff of villa Velmarie will make your stay even more pleasurable. There is personal guest assistance, daily housekeeping and a chef who prepares mouthwatering local and international dishes with organic, local ingredients. There is also a reception and 24 hour security. Wifi is offered complimentary.
Tucked in a peaceful coastal town on the Southern part of Sri Lanka, you will feel far away from everywhere, setting the perfect vibe for unwinding completely together with your loved ones. The white-sanded Maggona beach is just a five minute walk away, giving great possibilities for swimming, snorkelling and diving. If you want to go on a day-trip, the bus stop and the railway station are in walking distance an you can also hop into a local Tuk Tuk to get yourself around to the nearby hotspots. The international airport is 84 kilometre away.
I'm a female photographer who was on work in Sri Lanka, setting up my own tour, when I stayed at Ville Velmarie. At the time I was traveling alone (with drivers) and that particular night our accommodation plans fell through. At 7pm, I found myself at a dubious place with questionable stains on the bedding. Tired and upset, I left immediately and to cut along story short, after rejecting about 4 other places for their inflexibility, some fellow travelers in the vicinity asked me to come there. It was slightly out of my planned route but at 9:30pm and exhasted, I just didn't care anymore. I rang the manager Charith to ask for availability for me and the drivers . Not only was he totally hospitable but FLEXIBLE (something the other establishments weren't), his staff received us at 10 PM without a fuss and still managed to cook us a delicious home made rice and curry. I will forever be grateful for taking us in like that. The place was beautiful, clean, furnished in the traditional way that is full of character. And the TOWELS... oh Lordie the towels... were so soft and clean and WHITE (sorry, you could tell, I had my fair share of bad experiences on that trip - lol) I didn't actually appreciate how beautiful the outside was until the following morning. My friends weren't kidding. Every single room opened up to the cleanest pool and glorious garden, which was quite large in itself. I had been in Sri Lanka for about 1 &1/2 weeks by then but had not been in water! So I was in the pool before you knew it. Tea was served pool side and we had a yummy string hopper breakfast shortly afterwards. There's two things I regret: that I couldn't stay longer and that I didn't take many photos. For a photographer, the later is almost a sin! So if you are ever contemplating this hotel, don't, just go! You won't be disappointed. I hope that someday I can go back, perhaps on their yoga retreat as that sounds ideal. Thanks Charith and staff. I wouldn't hesitate recommending you and also including your establishment in my tour itinerary. For small businesses like me, it is also a perfect set up. Thanks, Chamilka
