Welcome to Iranawila Beach House, we are a Kiwi owned 2bed/2bath exclusive hideaway with private Chef … not too much off the beaten track, in beautiful Sri Lanka.
You’ll feel at peace with everything you need in this open plan architecturally designed home. There’s lots of polished concrete, solid teak and a wonderful feeling of space and freedom.
Both spacious rooms have Queen beds, fresh linen, towels and ceiling fans. The ensuites are identical and cleverly designed to be semi outdoors
- open to sky rain showers & hot water
- fresh Aloe Vera plant for sunburn
- river pebble floor for a soft foot massage
- Every room faces and has a direct view of the Indian Ocean; a 52ft saltwater swimming pool fits perfectly in front of the house on a manicured sand terrace, for year round dips.
- Iranawila beach is swimmable in high season – Oct – April.
We offer Yoga classes for all levels & excellent massage.
When you book the Beach House you get exclusive use of the pool bar, terrace and outside kitchen with pizza oven.
The terrace is also perfect for chilling out, sunset drinks and fantastic views. With the beach in front, a small local road frames the villa, fully walled and set on 1 acre of coastal gardens, tropical fruit trees and a working vegetable patch, we try to grow as much as we can here.
Different colors and varieties of Frangipani feature around the property as do an array of colorful bird life.
Breakfast is for up to 4 guests in the nightly rate, other meals, easily by arrangement with our Chef, Gayan. He caters to all of your special requests.
Any Sri Lankan delicacies you want to try? A Sri Lankan curry cooking class in the outside kitchen? An all day menu is available too.
A unique attraction during high season are the smiling hard working fishermen/women pulling in nets on the beach in front and fishermen in an array of boats and canoes. Both activities have front row seats here.
There are no tourists or advertising.
Iranawila is a very “Nat Geo”, peaceful village, perfect for photographers of all levels.
Bandaranaike International Airport (CMB) is 1hr away, perfect for guests arriving and acclimatizing or to end your Island holiday before you say farewell. The “Cultural Triangle, Elephant Orphanage, Wilpatu National Park are all within easy reach from IBH. The nearest local town is easily reached with several attractions as well. We are also popular with cyclists.
There are extra beds for children or other guest’s, they can be moved to any place on site and mosquito nets fitted for a real experience.
The property is perfect for anyone who needs to escape the crowds and experience a unique peaceful environment, something you don’t find very often.
We rate our service style and fresh cuisine highly as we do our sunsets.
I’m certain you will have an unforgettable time with us.
