Barefoot simplicity is the key to The Teak House. Relax in the inside/outside living room. Plug your favourite tunes into the Philips sound system. Swing in a hammock beneath the coconut palms or take a cocktail on the bespoke teak sun loungers.
As the heat of the day turns to dusk, take an evening swim in the Indian Ocean below, join a game of cricket on the beach, stroll beneath the cool canopy of the coconut plantation or enjoy a cup of delicious Ceylon tea on the verandah. Nothing is too much trouble for our staff. After a day or so, you won't even have to ask - a refreshing drink will simply appear.
Early mornings are very special at The Teak House. As the sun rises and the hibiscus flowers open, the garden is a truly special place. Planted with a breathtaking variety of hibiscus, bougainvillea, flowering ginger, frangipani, it never ceases to delight. With over two hundred coconut palms on the plantation surrounding the house, a fresh coconut is not a luxury but a daily necessity.
"A beautiful and relaxing finale for our Sri Lankan holiday. How fabulous to lie in thesun by the pool watching monkeys and all sorts of birdlife, or the fireflies after dark, all with the constant sound of the sea. Roshan and Ruane are unassuming and yet looked after us thoroughly - and Roshan's cooking is wonderful! A relaxed, homely, entirely comfortable end to the holiday - we loved it.
Thanks and we hope to be back soon."
