Riso and Amour Villas

Against the storybook-like coast of Kamburugamuwa, Mirissa in the South of Sri Lanka stands ‘Riso and Amour Villas’, another shining star off the beach collection by ‘Lantern’. The vibrant villas are set in a surreal tropical backdrop that is snuggled 160-km away from the dazzling commercial capital of Colombo.

Best Known For

Inspired by its love story with the Italian word ‘Riso’ which means laughter and the French word ‘Amour’ which talks about love, ‘Riso and Amour Villas’ has a cherished vision of celebrating mirth, festivity and love, in the sunshine. The picture-perfect villas are built with couples and families in mind and are assigned with a cheerful manager, a butler and a culinary wiz of a chef to take care of your needs while you and your loved ones wander through the glory of the ocean scene, hand in hand.

The Experience

The pair of villas has 4 bedrooms each and are nestled by the sides of a quaint courtyard. Both villas sleep 10 adults each. The first floor ocean front suite opens its curtains on the endless ocean picture while the slide-open doors of the ocean suite reveal the soft sands of the beach that tickle your feet. The courtyard suite captures the colour and blush of the courtyard garden whereas the courtyard rooms send you to the limpid swimming pool in a mere hop.

After a long day in the sultry Island colours, cuddle into the warm embrace of your bed and watch your favourite TV show as you wiggle your happy toes against the flawless linen. Meals that you tuck in to while you are at Riso and Amour Villas are handmade with love by a chef who knows the spices and sweets like a book. You can make a few picks from the ‘Lantern Mixing Pot Restaurant’ menu as well.

Around and About

The laid-back coastal Eden of Mirissa sets the perfect Mise-en-scène for your whale and dolphin adventure. Sail the diamond-like seas in the sun-up to the wondrous realm of those gorgeous creatures on a colourful boat. Marvel at pods of whales that glide past your boat and gams of dolphins that twirl and spin in the corn-flower blue waters. Wend your way to the fishing village in a morning to see it coming to life with a myriad of colours and sounds. Idle down the sandy beaches or swim your hours away in the silver-capped waters – achieving the tan that you’ve always dreamed of. Enjoy a day trip to the historic Fort of Galle that captivates the world with a colonial lighthouse, clock tower and other landmarks that are truly a celebration of heritage.

A cozy villa on the beach that looks like a creamy seashell beckons to you… the beach shines like a pavement of pearl and gold and silver… beyond, the sea allures you with its mystery and charm… the tawny sands run and run and your feet itch to follow it… You are on vacation in paradise with your loved ones! As you lay stretched on the beach, you smile to yourself, contended with all that you are…
