If you are searching for an exclusive villa rental, guest house, boutique hotel or bed and breakfast in the most exciting region of Sri Lanka, then this is the place for you!
Sergeant House is a three minute walk away from the glistening waters and palm fringed beach of Unawatuna. Unawatuna Beach is the most popular and safe beach on the south west coast of Sri Lanka.
Sergeant House, with its tranquil gardens, ponds and swimming pool, offers an ideal oasis to enjoy the richness of the south west coast and surrounding countryside. It is a unique villa complex composed of individual pavilions and an historic bungalow. These structures are focussed around an exquisite swimming pool that wraps around the dining pavilion and cascades towards a lily pond and gardens. Sergeant House was built to reflect the best qualities of Sri Lanka by capturing its colonial past whilst reflecting the contemporary needs of our guests. It is the perfect size for individuals, couples or a small group of friends as we offer personalised service and attention to detail only found in the best boutique villa.
On the beach, opposite Sergeant House, the gentle waves lap against its golden-white sands whilst bohemian cafes and restaurants adjoining the beach offer cool refreshments and delicious snacks and meals.
Less than a 15 minute drive away from Sergeant House lies the historic 16th – 17th century Galle Fort. This is an outstanding UNESCO World Heritage example of an hexagonal stone fort built on the edge of the Indian Ocean by the Dutch to protect this historic trading port and harbour. Today the Fort functions as a thriving local community and tourist destination sprinkled with European residents. Within a few minutes of leaving Sergeant House you can be there exploring its ramparts, shops, cafes, museums and many historic Dutch and British colonial buildings.
Sergeant House also makes an excellent central base if you are interested in the annual Galle Literary Festival, Galle Cricket Series, visits to Geoffrey Bawa Gardens and other famous gardens, a Sri Lankan cooking experience, touring ancient temples, kayaking from the beach or Koggala Lagoon, enjoying the multitude of water sports including scuba diving, snorkelling, swimming, surfing, trips to the southern National Parks and Sinharaja Rainforest (also a UNESCO world heritage site).
