Taprobane Sri Lanka: Private Bliss

The exotic shores of  Taprobane Sri Lanka are calling  you to come out and play. The private island is a stone’s throw away from the shores of Weligama and from your own idyllic luxury villa you can glance out at fishermen casting their nets in the warm waters, watch cows bobbing gracefully to cool in the surf and hear the lilt of laughter as dark skinned children chase each other along the shore. The island is laced in romantic appeal even in its history having been built by a self-proclaimed Count back in the golden age of the jazz era. This is the only place in the world where you will have to wade through pure waters to reach your perfect home away from home.

The five bedroom villa sits prettily perched on a bed of green and blue and holds a staff of six who will happily cater to your every whim and desire. Bedrooms are flooded in light that seems to highlight the pale cream colors and bring whispers of the Indian Ocean and fantasy slipping through the large open windows. The marble like verandah is plumped with cushioned chairs making it the perfect place to sink down, dream a little dream and tackle your summer reading list without a care in the world.

Balconies, infinity pools and lush manicured gardens ensure that there is always somewhere new to enjoy the day whether its brunching in floral beauty, cooling off in the waters or sipping a champagne cocktail somewhere between dusk and dawn.

Being only a short wade away from the traditional fishing village of Weligama you can enjoy the best of both worlds. Spend days exploring the ancient murals of the Kataluwa Temple, journeying to see the towering statue of Buddha or indulging in a tour of the lowland tea plantations that scatter the lands. After soaking up the surroundings of the far away world of Sri Lanka you can return to the heavenly retreat of Taprobane.
