Sri Lanka, Indian Ocean
Set in three acres of tropical gardens with extensive lily ponds and easy access to a glorious stretch of beach, the Reef Villa & Spa is one of Sri Lanka’s most memorable residences. The main Plantation House and palatial suites are all hand designed using antiques from across India with original empire four-poster canopied beds and beautifully crafted furniture. Suites are named after the famed water flowers of Sri Lanka with private furnished verandas to admire your stunning surrounds. Reef Villa is family run with a homely atmosphere and relaxed style. There is an emphasis on excellent food and the small restaurant serves delicious international and local à la carte dishes which can be eaten al fresco by the pool.
