ColomboSri Lanka· 2 Rooms · ££

Creatively decorated to give you a feeling of stylish jungle glam

This lavish retreat was created as a stopover for travellers at the beginning or end of their Sri Lankan explorations

Casa Heliconia is just 25 kms away from Colombo Airport, en-route to the Cultural Triangle of Sri Lanka, which makes it the perfect place to stay at the start or end of your Sri Lankan adventures. Situated on the edge of a village surrounded by plantations, this intimate boutique hotel has just 2 spacious rooms which are eclectically designed with a fusion of Western and Eastern art and antiques. Each has its own private terrace and dining area to give guests tranquil and luxurious spaces in which to relax. There's a lovely pool with shaded sun loungers, as well as a sitting room pavilion for socialising during the day.

If you're lingering a little longer than just an overnight stop, you can venture a short distance to visit some historical Buddhist temples as well as local markets and villages for a glimpse into the lives of local people. The hotel can also organise a picnic at one of the nearby paddy fields where you can stretch your legs with a lovely rural ramble.

Our Difference

The Far & Wild Community...

We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.

The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… so we connect with local communities, and strive for sustainable travel to make your holiday special
