Pointe Sud is one of the best villas in Sri Lanka – a luxurious property set on a four-acre private estate scattered with coconut palms and commanding breathtaking views across Mirissa Bay. It was innovatively designed, built using locally sourced antique window frames, old temple doors, teak floors, and clay tiled roofs, and has exquisite interiors that are a blend of European and Asian styles. The villa is set on a four-acre property with the main villa, garden pavilion and magnificent infinity edge swimming pool located on the cliff top. A series of downhill steps takes you to the foot of the cliff, where there is another pavilion set amidst a garden which has beach access. The sea fronting the villa is not suitable for swimming but the crescent-shaped Mirissa Bay is just a short drive away, which is ideal for swimming and surfing during the season. Pointe Sud is rented exclusively to one party on a villa only basis and can accommodate up to 10 guests.
There are four uniquely-designed bedrooms at Villa Pointe Sud and a fifth bedroom down in the basement library with shelves lined with books. Four of the bedrooms, including the basement room, are furnished with queen-sized beds, whereas the fifth bedroom is furnished with single beds. The bedrooms are reminiscent of a vintage postcard with pastel colour tones, white-drape canopies, wall tapestries, and antique doors and windows. The bedrooms are air-conditioned and feature en-suite bathrooms with all necessary amenities including walk-in showers.
Dining is wherever you wish – in the dining room or in the gardens – and there is an in-house chef who will prepare delicious Sri Lankan cuisine and seafood specialties using fresh local produce. The dining area is found on the porch along with another rattan sitting area, and a stunning panoramic view of the ocean. Dig into delicious meals with loved ones and have a feast with enthusiasm as you enjoy the ocean breeze and drink to your health. The kitchen is fully-equipped with modern amenities for your use or for the chef to prepare your meals.
There are several spaces for private relaxation: the beautiful living room with its high pagoda-style roof, the broad veranda which has garden and sea views, and the outdoor pavilions. There is also a fully-equipped kitchen, TV room with a movie projector, indoor games and toys for children and an extensive library with books and a DVD collection, as well as a long rectangular infinity pool set amidst terraced gardens. Other villa facilities include Wi-Fi, satellite TV, iPod dock, baby high chair and cot (upon request), laundry service, and relaxing massages (with prior notice). The villa is staffed with an excellent chef and housekeeping staff.
