About the property

This Geoffrey Bawa designed pavilion offers breathtaking view over Weligama Bay

Possibly the most stunning views from a private villa on the whole island and steeped in history. Designed by the late great SL architect, Geoffrey Bawa and now taking its first steps into the holiday rental market the views overlooking the vast Welligama Bay are unrivaled.

The house “was designed as a weekend retreat high on the red cliffs which frame the eastern end of Weligama Bay. The visitor climbs a narrow track from the busy main road and after a final twist discovers a breathtaking view across the bay framed by a grove of swaying coconut palms. Closer inspection reveals that the coconut trunks are harbouring a platoon of black columns and that a thin horizontal roof is floating amongst their fronds. A simple pleasure pavilion stands on a stepped plinth facing towards the place of the setting sun: a house stripped to its bare essentials.”

A beautiful place to relax and take in panoramic views

  • 5 of 5

This property is simply breathtaking! It's a wonderful place to relax and unwind. It's still close enough to town to rent some scooters and enjoy the freedom of exploring on your own, and then returning to you secluded and quiet paradise. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the chef makes spectacular meals. The meals are delicious and about the same price as a restaurant, but better and worth the money. We loved our visit to paradise and enjoyed being spoiled for a few days. Thank you for a lovely time!

amazing spot in Lanka

  • 5 of 5

I have visited Redcliff's twice and have fallen in love with this small paradise on the southern shores of Lanka. It is almost beyond words. Let's say charming, peaceful and tranquil. Both times it's been invigorating to the mind and body. Hope I'm able to visit again soon.

Stayed at RedCliffs with some friends in late April. It's unbelievably beautiful The house sits at the end of a promontory cliff so there are 270 degrees of panoramic sea views. The staff and chef are excellent, and all in all it's a wonderful place to unwind. ...The house, incidentally, was designed by Geoffrey Bawa, a legendary designer for the area. Architectural enthusiasts will appreciate this doubly.
