Overview You can choose from nine phenomenal luxury eco-villas at this resort.

Positioned on a hilltop, just outside Galle in southern Sri Lanka, the area around this pretty boutique is a working tea plantation where monkeys play in the treetops, chameleons amble along the grass and rainbow butterflies fly through the air.

Spend your days here lounging around the open-air reading room and dipping in and out of the infinity pool. 

Wow factor Don’t leave without trying head chef Ruwan’s incredible secret Sri Lankan curry recipe.

He’ll even teach budding chefs how to prepare the creamy fish curry delight themselves, using ginger, coconut, local curry powder and other spices.

You can gobble your masterpiece in the restaurant overlooking the jungle afterwards.

Two-hour cooking lessons run daily. Want to burn off all those calories?

Join one of the resort’s rough-and-ready treks to a nearby nature reserve of your choice.

Rooms Every villa has an outside rain shower and an individual colonial-style look.

Think period paintings, four-poster beds and little carved trinket boxes with elephant designs on them. 

Bill, please Suites start at £240 per night, more in peak season.
