Light and airy, Suriyawatta is a private house ideal for large groups. Wander down to the beach from the villa where you can take a dip in the Indian Ocean and return for lunch in a shady spot cooked by your private chef. Take a yoga class in the garden with magnificent view or have an in-villa spa treatment to unwind. Nearby you’ll find Weligama Bay where you can try surfing, paddle-boarding and sea kyayking. Matara, the local village has two Dutch forts to explore.
