Style Notes

Contemporary tropical architecture. Created by Reda Amalou and AW2 of Paris, the property uses the finest bespoke finishes and furnishings. Ceilings soar, materials are natural where possible and there is a nod towards Sri Lanka’s colonial heritage, with shuttered windows and ceiling fans. Clean lines abound. We love the spacious bedrooms, the ocean views and the luxuriously finished spa-influenced bathrooms.
