Set beneath swaying palms at the edge of the Indian Ocean, Serene Pavilions invites rest and relaxation in a setting inspired by the tropical island of Bali. Each of the 12 luxury villas are an exclusive sanctuary, with private plunge pools and courtyards filled with calming greenery. They also contain personal living areas and dining rooms, where your chef and butler will serve your meals.
If you can be tempted to leave your villa, the beach is steps from your door. Serene Pavilions also has a peaceful spa, offering Swedish, Thai and Balinese therapies. There is also a central restaurant where stunning sea views accompany every dish, as well as a lovely bar, where sunsets and cocktails can be enjoyed.
Things to do at Serene Pavilions include of course, exploring the golden sands of Wadduwa Beach which offers sheltered waters ideal for swimming. This part of Sri Lanka’s southern coast retains its rural charm, with fishermen displaying their catch every day at the local market, which you can walk to from the resort. You can also visit the historic Galle Fort to the south, go on a relaxing boat cruise on nearby Bolgoda Lake or trek in the Sinharaja Rainforest.
