Sitting up on a hillside, surrounded by towering tree canopies lies the contemporary oasis that is Haritha Villas. There is little else like this in such an excellent location in Sri Lanka. Modern private villas boast their own plunge pools, blending seamlessly with the colonial mansions that merge both colonial and contemporary styles. While the property collaborates with a beachfront venue for those craving some beach moments, it's a mere 40-minute journey to the historic town of Galle.
Personalised service and a vast array of activities come as standard, the infinity pool isn't bad, either, a great place to cool off in or sit by as you take in the beautiful views and tranquil atmosphere. Enjoy your breakfast anywhere throughout the resort and at any time. Your day can be as relaxed, slow-paced, or busy as you like. There is an emphasis placed on healthy living so you can make the most of unlimited yoga, meditation and fitness classes, or have a consultation with the in-house Ayurvedic doctor who can curate your wellness experience. If you need unwinding any further, visit the Jungle Spa for herbal baths, a sauna, jacuzzi and massage treatments. As well as all this, there is plenty more to keep you entertained with cooking classes, tea tasting, a gym, outdoor movies, trekking and destination dining.
The villas themselves are a real highlight. Sri Lanka has rarely seen contemporary stand-alone villas like this before. They have a peaceful feel and are open-plan with marble, polished stone and wood decor. From your bed, you can walk right out to your private saltwater plunge pool, sun loungers and garden.
Haritha is a top-notch choice for a spot of relaxation after a tour of the island and is ideal for those looking for private and contemporary villa accommodation.
Deluxe - This is our first really 'upmarket' category. It might be a beautiful tiny hotel with very limited facilities or a 5* resort hotel with all the trimmings; but any hotel in this category will be a well-run establishment with very comfortable rooms, a strong service ethos and excellent food.
