A tumbling tropical garden, a glorious infinity swimming pool, artfully decorated interiors and tantalising cuisine are just some of the ingredients that make Lansiya a truly incredible place to stay. Perched atop the boulder-strewn headland overlooking the wide arc of both Mahawella and Seenimodera bays close to Tangalle, the panoramic views from Lansiya's elevated situation are superb. Gazing uninterrupted from the inviting depths of the delicious infinity swimming pool and indeed from almost every living, dining or sleeping area on the property, your eyes are directed over the swell of a sea scattered with colourful fishing catamarans towards the verdant headland in the distance. At sunset the scene is sensational as the fiercely glowing sky inflames the sea and makes sultry silhouettes of the shadowy palms that sway elegantly in the gentle breeze. Lansiya has four inspiring bedrooms spread between two buildings. Always a favourite with romantics, Lansiya Hill, the solitary one suite building on the highest part of the land and closest to the spray of the sea is an intimate hidey hole for honeymooners, romantics and escapists. Having its own deep wraparound balcony furnished with a double lounger, built-in sofas and space for dining, this double suite is truly romantic. Lush foliage bursts up all around it ensuring that your privacy remains intact without obstructing from the scenic bay views that stretch out beautifully beyond. Perfect for families or groups, the three gorgeous bedrooms of Lansiya House, a newer building on the opposite end of the garden, sit side by side and share a deep balcony with views over the whole property and out to sea. Lansiya's bathrooms in both Hill and House are full of eastern promise as they come with private outdoor shower rooms for bathing under a twinkling blanket of stars.
