The Detail

Bougainvillea Retreat has 3 bedrooms in the main house and 5 bungalows scattered around the grounds, all centred around the main pool that looks out over the Victoria reservoir and to the Knuckles Mountain range beyond. The property was designed by its Danish owner and has a Mediterranean feel so it is very different to most traditional style Sri Lankan properties nearby. Dining is very relaxed with delicious home cooked food on offer although remember to pick up alcohol on the way as there is no liquor license here. Nearby is the excellent Victoria Golf course and also the Knuckles range for some great trekking and yoga classes are also on offer in the garden.

Millis Potter Insight

Bougainvillea Retreat is only 45 minutes from Kandy making a day trip to explore this important city very easy. The proximity to one of Sri Lanka’s best golf courses is another reason many people choose to stay here, as well as its very laid back atmosphere that is ideal for couples, families or large groups wanting to book the entire place. There are no real formalities here and it is very much a home from home, so don’t expect to be waited on hand and foot but it is a great option if you want a relaxed stay in beautiful surroundings.

A Family Holiday to Sri Lanka

Negombo - Hill Country - Kandy - South Coast Beaches  

Think Sri Lanka, and think of wild elephants, jungles, tea plantations, spices and palm-fringed beaches. All of which makes for a wonderful family adventure, designed to not involve too much driving which can always be a downside to travelling with children in Sri Lanka.
