The sea-view veranda at the back of the villa offers a variety of areas to relax during both day and night. In fact, you may never want to leave!
The villa is fully staffed with a cook who can create a delectable menu of dishes ranging from East to West. The kitchen is also available for guests to cook for themselves.You can discuss your meal options with the cook each morning.

The second is an authentic curry kitchen, where our staff cooks up rice and curries in the traditional Sri Lankan style.
Every morning enjoy a delicious western or Sri Lankan breakfast accompanied by fresh tropical fruits at any one of the many scenic dining spots at the villa. The cook at Saldana is comfortable cooking western dishes, but excels at cooking traditional Sri Lankan cuisine—eat rice and curry to your hearts delight!
Order fresh fish and seafood straight from the local market, or even better from the fishermen who come to the villa to sell their catch in the morning.
You are also free to explore the local restaurants at nearby Unawatuna and Galle. While it is possible to buy imported wine and liquor locally, if you have anything specific in mind, it is best to bring your own with you, or let us know your requirements in advance.
