Set on 4.25 acres of landscaped gardens in the village of Kommala, Bentota, is the beautiful 150 years old, restored Dutch Colonial Villa "Nisala Arana".
This was once the home of the "vedha mahathaya" (village ayurvedic doctor).
The property is dotted with vibrant medicinal and fruit trees and offers accommodation in six double bedrooms.
For your use also is the large dining / relaxing pavilion by the granite bordered fresh water swimming pool, the 'temple' for meditating and the badminton court to stay fit.
The Doctors House -The 150 year old village doctor’s House, designed in the Dutch Colonial style, has been faithfully restored. One or two modern conveniences have been added (bathroom, kitchen) to which no one has objected.
The complete house comprises entry verandah, living room, anteroom, two double bedrooms (master with attic), and dining room with contemplation pool, kitchen, bathroom, storeroom and laundry. Entertainment facilities include Satellite TV, DVD player, Hi Fi system, indoor games and library.
The walls of the house are constructed of huge 15" thick kabook and mud bricks. Combined with the 14-foot high ceiling and cement floor, it keeps the house beautifully cool. Ceiling fans are installed in all rooms to keep the air circulating. Finished with antique furniture throughout, completes the colonial ambience.
The Coconut Wing - The Coconut Wing was built on the site of the old “wedding room” which was used by the original family for various festivals.
The wing comprises two, mirror image large double bedrooms, in the Dutch Colonial style with very high ceilings and cement floors to keep you cool.
The open-air indoor bathroom, with indoor garden is stunning. Enjoy your shower with the sun pouring down on you.
Take your morning tea or coffee, or perhaps your fruit platter on the wide verandah. Relax in your planter’s chair. The all white room will truly tell you that you are in the tropics. Ceiling fans are even fitted in the outside verandah.
The Mango Wing -The two mirror image suites are located on the first floor of this wing to gain maximum airflow and a more expansive view of the property.
The wide verandah features a rare and beautiful antique Jaffna balustrade and you will enter your room through amazing antique Jaffna temple doors.
These will set the mood for you to enjoy the ambience of the suite. Features of the suite are twin four-poster antique beds (7’ length), antique wardrobe, dining suite for two, writing desk and day-bed
Walk through to the huge bathroom featuring a half wall of windows in Sri Lankan style trelliswork. These can be opened out to give a feeling of living in a tree house, or pull down the canvas blinds for privacy.
