Balapitiya, Southern Province, Sri Lanka

The neighbourhood is residential with traditional Sri Lankan homes in a tropical forest. Balapitiya is a small fisher village not yet spoiled by mass tourism. The entire coast is sandy beach with many lonely spots for swimming and bathing. Every Thursday there is a farmer market. Inland there is the protected Mandu river preserve, where you can do great nature tours by boat and visit the 62 islands, see shrimp farms, fish spas, cinnamon plantations and more.

Hello my name is Suraj Deshabandu and I am the proud owner and manager of Gecko Boutique Villa and balapitiya boutique hotel. Five years ago it was my dream to build a beautiful villa in my town of Balapitiya and I worked hard as a tour guide all across Sri Lanka in order to realise my dream. As a tour guide I am privileged to see the best that Sri Lanka has to offer and this gave me the inspiration to design and consruct a villa in which visitors can discover the real Sri Lanka and enjoy the world-famous Sri Lankan hospitality. I look forward to welcoming you to Gecko Boutique Villa and balapitiya boutique hotel and to showing you the real Sri Lanka.
