Samudra House is a gorgeous, relatively recently built but timelessly styled beach-side villa with direct beach access. It sits on a great stretch of fairly quiet golden beach, not too far (15 minutes) from the busier strip of Galle. Amongst stiff competition, Samudra has to be one of, if not the loveliest beach villa on this southern stretch past Galle.
Two large main bedrooms sit side-by-side in front of a decadent pool that runs to well-kept lawns and the beautifully quiet beach of Habaraduwa a few yards beyond. This place really does nail it on style and attention to detail; the architecture the work of Jayatilaka Sumangala and the envy-inducing interiors the handiwork of owners Pip and Christian.
There’s nothing not to love about Samudra.
