Luxury in Sri Lanka at Haritha Villas + Spa
When you think of Sri Lanka, your mind goes to golden beaches, rich culture, rugged landscapes and wild safaris. Known as the Wonder of Asia, Sri Lanka is a destination not to be missed. If you’re looking for true luxury to complement your Sri Lankan escape, look no further than Haritha Villas + Spa in Hikkaduwa, on the southwest coast of the island nation. This stunning retreat redefines Sri Lankan hospitality, offering its guests a truly tailored experience they’ll be sure to remember long after checkout.
Upon arriving at Haritha Villas, you’ll be warmly welcomed with a refreshing drink and introduced to your dedicated villa master, assigned to cater to your every need during your stay, both within the resort and as a guide should you wish to explore all that Hikkaduwa has to offer. Located a mere 900 metres from the beach – 3 minutes by private tuktuk transfer – you can look forward to lounging in an exclusive section for Haritha Villa guests along the kilometre long stretch of pristine beach.
A short stroll through lush gardens will lead you to your private villa, tucked away from the rest of the world behind a wall of tropical greenery. Whilst the stunning infinity pool at Haritha Villas is undeniably inviting, nothing quite beats the privacy of your own exclusive plunge pool. The floor to ceiling glass doors of your villa can be opened to blend the indoors with nature, and with a covered patio and sunbeds, there’s ample space for a little R&R after your dip.
Lazy mornings in luxury are made all the more enjoyable with breakfast in bed, accompanied by the sound of Sri Lanka’s plentiful bird species. You’re guaranteed to wake up on the right side of the bed as your butler brings you freshly brewed Ceylon tea and your selection of exquisitely prepared breakfast favourites. Think the finest French Toast you’ve ever had, Eggs Benedict with smoked salmon and mango chutney, freshly baked pastries and juicy, tropical fruit.
Continue your gastronomic journey with dinner at the restaurant – or served in your villa – and enjoy an international menu inspired by flavours from Asia and South America, touches of fine Mediterranean cuisine and authentic Italian – a tip of the hat to the Umberto, the Italian General Manager. Haritha Villas takes hospitality to the next level and invites you to enjoy unscripted dining. As the executive of your menu, if there’s something you fancy that’s not on the menu, the world-travelled former Four Seasons Executive Chef Jude would be delighted to make it happen.
Your stay at Haritha Villas wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the world-class spa. The ultimate holistic wellness haven, Jungle Spa offers a suite of treatments and experiences, from traditional Ayurvedic medicine and relaxing and revitalising rituals to pampering facials and perfect manipedis. If you weren’t already feeling brand new after your time at Haritha Villas, you sure will after a day spent at Jungle Spa.
Take your wellness journey to the next level with an Ayurveda program administered by one of two in-house Ayurveda doctors, ranging from 7, 10, 14 and 21 days. You’ll experience an Ayurveda Panchakarma Detox, acupuncture and acupressure singing bowl treatment, using only the finest organic Ayurveda products from Elemis and Margaret Dabbs.
