Introduction

This divine two storey mansion lies within the Horathapola coconut estate in Sri Lanka's expansive coconut belt, stretching from Negombo to Puttalam and towards Kurunegala. Horathapola was originally built in the early 1900s, but was restored in 2003, maintaining its historic charm and atmosphere. Enjoy the magnificent green landscapes of rural Sri Lanka at this timeless location.

Overview

Horathapola estate is a working organic coconut estate of approximately fifty acres. Aside from coconuts - rice, cashew nuts, mangoes and other fruits, spices and hardwood trees are cultivated here. The plantation bungalow is well hidden in this massive estate, so guests will experience a secluded holiday experience with only a variety of birds as visitors. First built by the British owner of the estate, this bungalow has a unique historical aura about it and is surrounded by a large lawn and tall flowering trees. Spend your days within the compound going for walks, swimming in the eco friendly salt water pool or the jacuzzi or reading a book in the library. There is a vast amount of space to enjoy a relaxing and undisturbed holiday. You can also go for a bullock cart ride around the estate to see how the fruits and spices are grown or go birdwatching or trekking. The chef offers Sri Lankan cookery classes. Some guests who are keen to venture out of the estate can visit nearby village temples, the local markets, enjoy a bike ride on the village roads, or a day trip to the ancient city of Panduwasnuwara and the ancient rock temple- Yapahuwa. For those craving sun and sea, Negombo Beach is just 30 minutes away.
