Cassia Hill is a grand, renovated colonial villa with modern luxuries and an infinity pool, on a secluded hillside with sweeping views and surrounded by tropical forest, 8 minutes from the coast. Sumptuously appointed, the villa is professionally staffed with a butler, chef, security, on-call massage and yoga, and an optional car and driver. A peaceful haven free of the coastal railway noise of beachside villas, but close enough to enjoy all that coastal Sri Lanka has to offer!

The space
Cassia Hill is a newly renovated, grand colonial-style villa designed by George Cooper of Kahanda Kanda fame. Tastefully decorated with an eclectic mix of vintage Raj-era and modern furnishings, the villa is nestled in a tropical garden on a hillside with sweeping views, just 8 minutes from the coast. Enjoy sunset drinks on the sweeping verandah under lazily turning fans, or lounge in the infinity pool or hammock, to the sound of distant temple chants and the chattering of wildlife in the trees.

Guest access
Guests have full use of the main villa with 4 luxurious bedrooms and an attached villa with 2 smaller bedrooms and a living room. The main villa has an infinity pool and grand verandahs, and both villas are surrounded by a gardens with plants and trees.

Other things to note
The villa is equipped with broadband WiFi, large-screen plasma TV, multi-region DVD player with a library of films, satellite TV, and a Naim sound system with iPad music library. Plus we have classic board games if you want to go retro! For power outages, the property has a backup generator, and there is round-the-clock security.
