Bougainvillea Retreat

Hill Country, Sri Lanka

Bougainvillea Retreat is just a 45-minute drive from the Hill Country city of Kandy. Originally a private house, it is contemporary in design and feels quite like a Mediterranean villa. Stays here can be either exclusive or on a room by room basis.

At a Glance

  • Bougainvillea is a private house designed by its stylish Danish owner

  • Located in the heart of the Victoria Golf and Country Resort outside the city of Kandy

  • The house was designed for entertainment purposes so has lots of open space, a bar and snooker table

  • Families are well catered for with a cinema room in the basement complete with hundreds of DVDs

  • The house is set amongst beautifully landscaped gardens and blends in well with the environment

Insider's View

There is no alcohol licence so you will need to pick up your own en route to the retreat.

The Retreat can be rented as a whole for a large group as well as on a room by room basis for couples and individuals.

Insider's View

As the Retreat is quite European in style, we wouldn't really recommend it for those who would prefer a more authentic Sri Lankan style property.

Description

Bougainvillea Retreat consists of a main house and five bungalows a short distance away. The house has three rooms, two with balconies overlooking the pool area. Each Bungalow has a private terrace overlooking the garden and two of the five share a small garden which is perfect for a family or two couples traveling together.

Each room has an entertainment station with an iPod dock but there are no televisions in the rooms. For those who need a fix, there is a television in the study of the main house and a very unique cinema room in the basement complete with DVDs and film posters adorning the walls.

The Retreat has an outdoor spa tucked away outside in the garden. There is a steam bath, an outdoor Jacuzzi and the opportunity to have spa treatments in the open air.

A plentiful breakfast is offered each morning and for those who want it, the retreat can provide lunch and/or dinner. You just need to let the staff know each morning what your plans are for the day. As much food as possible is grown in the retreat's vegetable garden and eggs come from the chickens and ducks kept on site. All bread is home made. Please note that the retreat does not currently have an alcohol licence but you are welcome to bring your own and will not be charged for corkage.

In the surrounding area, there are a number of activities including golf, bicycling, walking and the city of Kandy is within easy reach. There are also nearby tea estates that you can explore.

Childcare

Children are more than welcome but there are no specific facilities.

Facilities

All meals can be eaten when guests choose and the chef is very flexible when it comes to different tastes.

Bougainvillea Retreat does not have an alcohol licence but if guests wish to bring their own drinks, they are more than welcome and there is no corkage charge.

Additional Notes

Location & Directions

Hill Country, Sri Lanka

When to go

Year round destination. Because the Hill Country it so high up it rarely gets unbearably hot. The months of December to April are probably the best time to visit, as temperatures rise to around 28C during the day but cool down at night. During the monsoon season from October to December you can expect heavy downpours. June to September are the driest months here, when there’s almost no rain at all.
