Possibly the most stunning views from a private Villa RedCliffs on the whole island and steeped in history. Designed by the late great SL architect, Geoffrey Bawa and now taking its first steps into the holiday rental market the views overlooking the vast Welligama Bay are unrivaled. The house “was designed as a weekend retreat high on the red cliffs which frame the eastern end of Weligama Bay.
A simple pleasure pavilion stands on a stepped plinth facing towards the place of the setting sun: a house stripped to its bare essentials.” There are living and dining areas in the open-plan, semi-alfresco common area at the front of the house, where you can just spend time, reading, eating or just being mesmerized by the view. There’s also a huge lawn to run around on or just chill in the pool which overlooks the ocean. We loved the lush garden and how the coconut trees framed every scene. Guests can also retreat indoors towards the back of the house, where the 3 bedrooms are split, with the master and ensuite upstairs, while the remaining 2 bedrooms, bathrooms, living area and pantry are located downstairs.
Villa RedCliffs comes with a chef and service staff. Local meals and seafood platters here are magnificent. You will feast like kings and queens! Exclusive hilltop location is just 5 mins away from Mirissa Beach. 180 Degree views of Weligama Bay & Mirissa This Geoffrey Bawa – the designed villa is truly special.
Bedrooms at Villa RedCliffs
The house has 4 bedrooms, all with aesthetically designed, spacious, modern toilets. The rooms are on two levels, each opening to gardens of their own levels, due to the split level nature of the property.
Each of these rooms have their own setting and character, and can be maintained as separate areas without having one’s privacy invaded with all having access to the main living area.
Bay View Rooms
Two rooms considered as standard in description, are located on an upper mezzanine level in line with the gardens. They are also permanently open and naturally cooled, with curtains that can be drawn for privacy. The open character of these rooms absorbs the pleasant ambience of the Redcliffs giving the occupants a living experience of the warm tropical climate. Fans are provided for cooling if the days are too hot, which is very rare around Mirissa bay.
The two Bay View rooms can also be interconnected at a special rate, so that a family can stay together, and have the benefit of two attached bathrooms and exclusive living area as well.
Located on the lower floor is a living area with its own bedroom and bathroom, lending to a larger living space.
Located on the lower floor is another room that opens to a large private garden with its own outdoor sitting area, and the attached bathroom that opens directly into this garden.
