Ivy Beach Resort is located near Galle on the south coast of Sri Lanka. Galle Fort was built in 1588 by the Portuguese and later on fortified by the Dutch during the 17th century. The heritage value of the fort has been recognised by UNESCO and is worth visiting during your time at the villa.
Nine bedrooms, nine bathrooms, beachfront location, air-conditioning in bedrooms, living room, indoor / outdoor dining, swimming pool, garden, fully staffed.
Ivy Beach Resort (previously The Old Lady at The Sea) is a beautiful beachfront property that can accommodated up to 23 guests. The villa is a reconstruction of a 300 year old Dutch house and traditional features adorn the property. When the owners came across this property, it was not much more than a ruined timber factory but they fell in love with the location. The owners stayed true to the original layout and set about restoring its colonial character.
The original villa houses five main bedrooms and the home has been furnished with Dutch period furnishings, floored in black terrazzo and fitted with new bathrooms and air-conditioning. A swimming pool and seaside pavilion has also been added. The property next door was then purchased and so came an additional 4 bedrooms.
Ivy Beach Resort now features ten bedrooms and can accommodate up to 23 guests making it a great choice for large families or a group of friends looking for an affordable beachfront retreat. The kitchen is fully equipped but the rates include the services of a cook who will prepare breakfast, lunch and dinner (groceries additional charge). Also on hand to ensure a relaxing and memorable stay is a house butler.
You can spend days relaxing on the sun loungers around the pool and enjoy the magnificent ocean views. The pool and villa is nestled in a landscaped garden and a kids pool has been a recent addition to this home's features.
