Villa Meda Gedara – Luxury Seven Bedroom Villa in Sri Lanka
Villa Meda Gedara is a spectacular villa that sleeps 16, very comfortably in Dikwela. Grand in stature, style, and thoughtfully designed, it sits at the top of a carefully sculpted tropical garden with panoramic views and private access to the Indian Ocean. Generously equipped with all the mod cons, the villa comprises of six bedrooms in the main house with a 7th, housed in the Garden House. There is a cinema room, a kid’s snug with TV, a large open plan sitting dining and kitchen with breakfast table and a further dining table on the verandah. In the landscaped gardens there is a 20m water slide that falls into a plunge pool, a large kidney shaped swimming pool with jacuzzi, a yoga shala and make-believe cricket pitch. Stylish, elegant and fun, it is perfect for a large family and groups of friends.
The attention to detail is apparent the moment you step through the large antique double fronted doors onto the beautiful hand-made Vietnamese tiles. Your gaze is immediately taken through the sitting area and into the garden with an incredible view of the alluringly ocean. In between this staggering view, on a lower terraced deck, is the main swimming pool with a sloping beach inspired access ideal for small children as well as the more mature swimmer. A teak staircase winds its way upstairs, past vast windows onto the 6-bedroom lined landing. Each bedroom is different, and all bathrooms are delightful. 4 poster beds; fitted mosquito nets; air con; comfortable seating; interesting curios and artwork. A children’s bunk room cleverly has a larger bottom bed for a nanny. The master suite has an adjoining room with twin beds for smaller children. Perfect for a couple without children, is another bedroom, charmingly housed in the Garden suite. It looks out across the lovely lawn on which many a SL vs ‘The rest of the World’ cricket match is had. An umpire’s hut is appropriately situated close to the action on the other side, whilst also doubling up as a look-out point to the beach, or as a shaded and well-lit ‘refreshment pavilion’. Hidden amongst the tropical planting lies a 74-foot water slide snaking its way into a plunge pool that rather generously is separated from the main pool allowing hours of fun whilst the less frantic can relax in calm waters.A large terrace offers with comfortable loungers provides ample tanning spots. Discreetly positioned, and further down the garden, is a stunning and spacious Yoga Shala with wonderful views out to sea. The beautifully landscaped gardens contribute to ensure this is a gentle and quiet area perfect for yoga and meditation. Returning to the house there is a brightly coloured and cushioned ‘TV room’ for exhausted children, and a wonderful grown-up ‘Cinema room’ with the projector and huge screen.
The chef is excellent and cooks an expansive range of cuisine and is very happy to offer cooking lessons on site. He is supported by a fantastically efficient team of 7 staff, seamlessly working behind the scenes. Villa Meda Gedara encompasses every creature comfort, in abundance. A spoiling home away from home, with luxuriously large beds, reassuringly lovely linen and a shortage of nothing. Villa Meda Gedara is a fabulous house that exudes wonderful energy and promises a fun and very comfortable holiday for any group, large or small, of all ages.
