Description

Located between Kandy and Colombo, this peaceful paradise is set in lush jungle but yet offers luxurious comfort. The property comprises of two Pavilion style bedrooms. Both with beautiful settings and lovely big double beds. The two pavilions are totally different in style and set up, although they do both have private dining areas.

Casa Heliconia is ideal for a couple of nights on arrival to Sri Lanka or at the end of your trip, just before you leave. It is conveniently located only 40km from the heart of Colombo and only 25km from the capital’s airport. The property is based on the perimeter of a farming village, sits in beautiful grounds which include a stunning temple stupa and is surrounded by plantations.

Experiences can include visits to markets, small temples, villages and farmland. The chefs will also put on amazing cooking demonstrations.

Temple Angkor is a beautifully laid out room, with en-suite bathroom and an outside shower in traditional Sir Lankan Style. The room has a great sit out dining area at the back.

Pagoda Gold is the small of the two pavilions with a loo that is outside, and down some steps. It also has an area were you can dine outside.
