Home Stay Strand

Bristling with home-spun cosiness, ‘Home Stay Strand’ provides a selection of nicely-decorated accommodation offerings, on the saffron sands of Unawatuna. This cheerful home stay occupies a lush tropical garden on the Southern Coast of the isle, two hours’ drive from the commercial centre of Colombo.

Best Known For

Unravelled within a traditional Sinhalese ancestral home that has been flourishing in a prolific tropical palm garden for over a century, this home stay in Unawatuna is a bastion of Ceylonese architecture and good old Serendib hospitality. With its olden Sri Lankan rustic charm and touches of Colonial designs, the atmospheric home plays out an orchestra of nostalgia.

The Experience

Opening doors to their timeless home, as well as, warm hearts, the two live-in hosts welcome guests with that sunny Southern smile. Truly believing that travel is about places and people, they ensure that each moment spent at their beloved home is interesting enough to secure a place in the precious story one carries back home. From antique Kavichchi (a traditional carved divan), quirky coffee tables and canopied four poster beds, to classical Sri Lankan breakfasts, this heritage home highlights the beauty of old Ceylon.

The suites at this colonial vintage villa in Unawatuna feature an intriguing blend of modern facilities and traditional designs. Opening out to a private verandah, the Garden Suite is filled with fascinating period furniture whilst the upstairs Duran Duran Suite is equipped with an airy balcony with a view of the tropical estates. Bright and breezy, the Nest Suite is furnished with a wrap-around balcony, which lends it a tree top feeling. Nestled on the top floor, the Casa Anna Suite offers a mishmash of the chic and antique whilst the ground floor suite, Casa Lillo opens out into a charming private garden. Offering a seating area, the Blue Suite features a loggia door, as well as, a garden door.

Around and About

Located a mere 7-KM from the historical city of Galle, Unawatuna is a watery paradise. Between aquamarine oceans and soft beaches; clear mornings, purple sunsets and warm, star-lit nights; Unawatuna blends a picture of a serendipitous sanctuary where time stands still. An enchanting wooded headland dotted with tiny coves, flanks the city from the west. Unawatuna’s lively-but-not rowdy character has made it a popular family holiday destination. The dreamy Jungle Beach, vivacious Main Beach and the muraled Yatagala Raja Maha Viharaya Temple are a few must-see sights. The ocean waters of Unawatuna are ideal for snorkeling, surfing and diving.

As you enter your Garden Suite, a Kavichchiya lounger and a beautifully-carved Galle style Almirah, each carrying a century-old memory, greets you. ‘Ayubowan, this will be your home for a few precious days’.
