Spectacular views over Unawatuna bay. 50ft infinity pool. 10 minutes walk to beach or free daily tuk tuk per room. Breakfast, aircon & 4G wifi included. Upstairs room with king size bed, ensuite, large balcony, evening meal available.
Perched high on a clifftop, the Far Horizons is a 4/5 bedroom villa that enjoys spectacular views by day and night over the bay of Unawatuna and the ocean beyond. The villa is fully staffed and available to rent as a whole and by the room. This listing is for a double room with king size bed on a B&B basis.
Situated just 10 minutes walk from the beach, down a path and steps past a temple (or about 15 minutes walk by the road), the villa is located at the edge of a small village community at the top of a steep hill. You can dip in and out of the shops, restaurants and nightlife of Unawatuna as you wish, while enjoying a more authentic experience of Sri Lanka than in resort accommodation. We also offer a free daily tuk tuk per room down to the centre of Unawatuna or to the beach at Mihiripenna.
Enter the front porch, kick off your flipflops and enjoy the feel of the cool polished cement floors underfoot. Through the central living room, you emerge onto a large wooden railed veranda and outdoor dining area, with plenty of seating to dine, relax and enjoy the view.
Down the granite steps you reach the grassy terrace, where the water sparkles invitingly on the pale green slates lining the 50ft infinity pool. The entrance to the pool has wide, shallow steps, perfect for parents to play with toddlers, or to sit and enjoy a drink. The infinity end reaches 6ft deep, but is furnished with narrow steps where you can stand to gaze at the scene below. Eagles can sometimes be seen both overhead and swooping down below the pool. There are both sunny and shady areas and plenty of comfortable sunbeds around the pool.
Furnished with an eclectic mix of antique and modern furniture and artefacts the villa highlights natural finish teak woodwork, custom made teak, jakwood and painted furniture, handloom fabrics from Vyanni of Unawatuna and original artwork by artists from all over Sri Lanka.
Breakfast is included in the room rate and a daily evening meal is offered. Guests are welcome to bring their own soft drinks and alcohol.
The 4 letting rooms are all equipped with aircon, ceiling fans, four poster beds, sprung mattresses, Egyptian cotton bedding, mosquito nets, lockable wardrobes with plenty of hanging space, small fridge, safe, tea and coffee making facilities and ensuites with walk-in rainshowers, toiletries and thick, fluffy towels. All ensuites have non-slip slate floors. All rooms enjoy a large private balcony or veranda with ocean and pool view. For families or friends renting more than room, the balcony divides can be removed to allow the party to sit outside together.
Saffron (26 sqm) is the largest room, located at the centre of the balcony and features antique double doors to the ensuite. There is also plenty of room for a cot bed or two.
Guests will have access to their room plus all the communal facilities: living area, TV, satellite system, outdoor dining area, pool, sunbathing area and garden.
