Casa Heliconia

Kaleliya,  West Country

Overview

An equisite way to say hello or goodbye to this serendipitous island.  Only 25km’s inland from the International airport, Casa Heloconia is surprisingly set deep in the rubber and coconut plantations and paddy fields.  Traditional farming villages ensure guests can feel part of rural life whilst under the watchful eye of a stunning Temple Stoupa.

Set within manicured jungle, Casa Heliconia comprises four beautiful yet eclectic pavilions providing tranquility and privacy.

Interiors inspired from all corners of the Globe fuse elegantly whilst each bedroom tells a story.  The shared terrace has ample seating for that private tete a tete, whilst a cosy common sitting room allows excited travellers to boast of their sightings and share experiences.  A third pavilion “Neapolitan” houses a swimming pool and loungers with magnificent views over the paddy fields.

The Doll’s House is furnished with all you need to read write and relax. Complete with a widescreen TV, DVD’s and WIFI, guests can retire with a touch of Western uinfluence. 

Rates include dinner and breakfast whick makes this a handy stopgap pre/post airport without compromising on Sri Lanka’s beautiful architecture and culture.

Things to do & local tips

  • -Primarily a stop-gap for the airport or Corporate travellers
  • -Take a tuk-tuk around the local villages
  • -If you explore the surrounding plantations, be sure to have a guide and ‘gaitors’ as the rubber plantations can attract leeches.  The resort is sprayed regularly to avoid them.
  • -Book ahead to arrange that ‘all needed’ massage- Ayurvedic treatments
  • -There is a badminton court, should you get the urge to play.
