The island was originally built in the 1920 by romantically named but self styled Count de Mauny-Talvande. The island with its neo palladian mansion has played host to kings, queens, presidents, prime ministers, aristocracy, writers and eccentrics, giving it a very colorful history, which guests can now share.
The Island comprises 2 ½ acres of sheer tropical fantasy with nothing between it and the South Pole. Accommodation is provided for in 5 en-suite bedrooms, with spacious living areas, balconies, verandahs, tropical gardens and a stunning infinity pool. A staff of 5 cater for your every need; in fact after arrival, guests frequently never leave the Island until their departure.
The sprawling octagonal house, with its cool white terrazzo floors and high wooden ceilings has 5 spacious en-suite bedrooms each with sea views. Light and airy living areas and shaded terraces & verandahs provide many a secluded spot to sunbathe, paint or read.
There are 4 double rooms and 1 twin room in the villa allowing up to 10 people to live in complete comfort. Each bedroom is filled with colonial style furniture, mosquito net draped four poster beds, overhead fans and spacious en-suite bathrooms.
All double rooms open onto their own private terraces with panoramic views out to the Indian Ocean and beyond.
With its pavilion style house and wrap around verandahs and terraces, the island provides many open & airy living areas, with views across the Indian ocean. These are spacious enough to retain your privacy yet perfect for celebrations and gatherings.
A stunning infinity pool overlooking the Indian Ocean provides the perfect place to cool off under the shade of swaying palms or simply to relax and sunbathe watching the world go by.
The house is surrounded by 2 acres of exquisite tropical garden with cascading terraces filled with frangipanis, palms, flame trees, fuchsias, hibiscus, bougainvillea, heliconia, bromeliads, monkey tail, orchids and white sandy paths that create many a secluded spot to wander aimlessly around the island.
Here you have your own private chef to provide you with delicious tropical cuisine with a focus on the freshest of local ingredients.
Meals are predominantly seafood with an Asian influence. Our chef is equally at home making the most delicious Sri Lankan curries.
Staff will purchase produce daily from the market after discussing your menu requirements.
A highlight of living on this island is being able to experience sunset cocktails or dining in so many amazing locations overlooking the Indian Ocean. Whether it's cocktail hour, lunch time or dinner time, our staff will ensure that each location is memorable & unique.

The island is located on Sri Lanka’s exotic south coast which is quietly becoming the Riviera of choice for the world’s most discerning and inquisitive travellers. Centrally located to the UN World Heritage site of Galle Fort, Buddhist temples, rainforests, lowland tea plantations, wildlife reserves and some of the most fabulous beaches in the Indian Ocean.
The island sits just 200 yards off the Southern Coast in the centre of Weligama Bay - a 4 ½ hour drive south of Colombo’s International Airport or, for guests wishing to come by helicopter, a journey that takes less than one hour. The island is just a 30 minute drive south of the Southern Provinces capital, Galle – home of the historic UN World Heritage site of Galle Fort. Access to the island from the coast is usually made by wading through the surf on foot, or by some, on elephant or sedan chair! Amazingly, there is nothing between the island and the South Pole.
Getting There & Away
Distances between locations in Sri Lanka are not that far, yet the time taken by road to reach a destination can be somewhat of a tiresome experience.
Our team can arrange transfers for you by either chauffer driven air conditioned vehicles, steam train or helicopter.
Rather than traveling by road why not transfer directly from your international flight onto Sri Lankan Airlines Air Taxi and arrive in Galle (Koggala airport) in just 30 minutes. Koggala airport is only a 15 minute drive from the island. It is the ideal way to travel in style, comfort and luxury at an affordable price.
