Ahangama Riverside Luxury villas. For those who want a unique lifetime experience, one of Southern Sri Lanka's best kept secrets awaits you Ahangama River. 2 luxury Villas, less than two kilometers from the ocean and close to the historic Galle Fort are on offer for the very first time. These Villas are nestled on a secluded inland island. Owned by two Australian designers, these two luxurious Villas are of Dutch colonial design offering stylish interiors that blend local materials with contemporary design. Each Villa consists of four ensuite bedrooms, living and dining areas and both offer private swimming pools.
The two Villas are positioned privately within the 8.5 acre estate consisting of waterways, cinnamon and coconut trees with lush tropical gardens.

Spend a morning at the beach and take in the sun and surf or just relax by the poolside and immerse in the tranquillity of your private Villa. The Villas can be booked individually, together or by the room.
Each of the Villas consists of four bedrooms, one of which is a romantic 'Honeymoon Suite' that is detached from the main Villa. The bedrooms have garden or river views and are furnished with twin or double beds, a/c and overhead fans. The ensuite bathrooms have baths and h/w showers.
