Kingsley's Pearl, Thalpe Sri Lanka, The South Coast
Kingsley's Pearl (Formerly Sanda Kirana Villa) is a luxury, modern villa in Thalpe, just along the coast from Galle. Spacious and bright, the villa is fantastic for families or small groups.
The five bedrooms are designed in a classical style. There are four large double rooms and an additional connecting room containing two beds. Large four-poster beds stand in the centre of the bedrooms, all of which are equipped with flatscreen televisions, stunningly designed en-suite bathrooms and open showers. The beds are cooled by overhead fans and the open design of the house makes great use of refreshing sea breeze, although all rooms have air-conditioning. The master bedroom at the beach end of the villa also has a grand outdoor seating area with reclining chairs.
The swimming pool is the centre-piece of this villa, in the heart main courtyard and visible from almost everywhere in the property. Finished in dark turquoise and surrounded by tiled walkways, it is large enough for a proper swim as well as a relaxing dip.
You'll find the spacious living room houses a collection of books and an assortment of traditional Sri Lankan wooden lounge furniture. Doors open out on both sides of the room making it breezy and light, supported by fans which hang from the high wooden ceiling. A separate dining area is located towards the front of the villa, which looks onto the water garden at the house entrance.
Kingsley's Pearl is fully staffed and you can discuss your meal requirements with the excellent chef. She will also shop for all your ingredients, tailoring meals to your tastes. A trip to the market with the staff is often worth the journey though for a slice of local flavour. All food and drink is paid for at cost price: which represents a huge saving on the equivalent standard meals, snacks and drinks at hotels.
The garden is spacious and spans the width of the land adjoining the sea. Sun loungers and parasols are scattered around and the grassy lawn and linen hammocks swing from the many coconut trees which lean out over the sandy beach below.
In all, it is a glorious place for a villa holiday and represents great value for a luxurious beach stay.
Luxury - Luxury hotels would have a superb level of service, very comfortable and usually spacious bedrooms, excellent food, great design and character. For us, when we visited, these places all had the 'wow factor'. A luxury hotel should satisfy the criteria of the most discerning clients.
