Set high on a hill overlooking the jungle-covered contours of the southern Sri Lankan hillside, Satori Villa is within easy reach of a coastline filled with stunning, soft sandy beaches. The World Heritage Site of Galle Fort is in the vicinity, and the island’s capital is just two hours away by car. Recommended by Condé Nast and Harper’s Bazaar, this magnificent Dutch colonial villa sleeps up to eight people in the main villa’s four-poster bedrooms each decorated in the traditional Sri Lankan style.  There are two further mini-villas in the garden providing accommodation for up to seven more guests which can be included in your rental if required (additional charges will apply). The ambience is luxurious while the feeling is wonderfully home-from-home.

A gentle and inspiringly natural environment, Satori villa offers guests the opportunity to rediscover real peace and relaxation. Lush tropical gardens surround the villa, and the fruit trees come alive with the chattering of monkeys, and the chirping of birds as they dart among the tall, overhead branches. A carp-filled pond adorns the outdoor terrace, and provides a sense of serene tranquility. Relax in the refreshing infinity pool, melt the knots in your muscles with a spa massage, or just laze idly on the verandah, and listen to the chorus of crickets under a magically star-clustered sky.

Satori Villa is fully staffed, with a chef on hand at all times. The staff are friendly and professional, and offer a service that is both gracious and attentive. Whether you are on honeymoon, a family or a group of friends in need of a break from the pressures of modern life, you will enjoy a truly unique experience in this little corner of paradise. We invite you to step out of the predictability of everyday life and enter something quite extraordinary.
