Luxury Beachside Villa on a Palm Tree Headland overlooking the Indian Ocean
The villa was designed and constructed by us. We actually designed and constructed six and sold three of the others to family and friends. We are a British couple living in Hong Kong.
Why Owner chose Kamburugamuwa
It was our dream to buy some land , design and construct these villas. My wife Jill is an Architect, I am an electronic engineer and our partner is a Malaysian landscape designer.
What makes this Villa unique
Each villa is like a "luxury self contained" boutique style hotel with private swimming pool, jacuzzi, bar, gym, kitchen etc as well as many other facilities for guests exclusive use.

We had a fantastic week at Villa Nisala. We were a group of 4 adults and 6 children and the separate villas somewhat interconnected worked well for us. The kids absolutely loved the pool, the local beach was lovely and while the water is a bit rougher it is lovely for sitting and enjoying the view. The staff at the villa were fantastic and could not have been more helpful with food service (always delicious and they were more than happy to accommodate adult and kid preferences), arranging transport to places and even letting us know when a monkey was in the trees nearby so the kids got to see it - a highlight !
Day trip wise we did trips to mirissa beach, the elephant safari and Galle and enjoyed them all. Some of our party also visited the tea plantation and turtle sanctuary which were also great. Would highly recommend Villa Nisala.
Stunning villa with exceptional staff
I cannot say enough about this breathtaking villa, staff who treat you like royalty and feel like family, delicious food - high praise from our 16 year old son who would order pizza if given the chance...he loved the fish, salads, and vegetables prepared by Ramya, and of course the beautiful setting on the beach. I initially reached out to Jill by email and she always responded immediately with great suggestions and assistance with transportation, etc. Tharanga is the property manager who handles everything effortlessly - much love to him and his family as his wife was giving birth to their son the day after our departure. Isura, Dharshani, and Channa all worked tirelessly to make sure the property always looked meticulous. We can’t wait to return!
Beautiful villa and location, wonderful staff
We have just returned from a week at Nisala Villa and had a wonderful time. The villa itself is spacious and comfortable, and the team of staff that take care of you ensure that you have the exact holiday that you want, whether this is going out to explore temples and local towns or just hanging out by the pool. Jill was very responsive and helpful during the whole process from inquiry right throughout our stay and we would highly recommend Nisala as a place to stay. Many thanks to the whole team, Catrin & Philip
Stunning place and people
Nisala Villa is absolutly a small paradise by its own. It is hard to say what is the most precious there. The owner is very friendly and helpfull, always ready to answer any questions and help us in reservation process.
The Staff – Shehan is the most professional manager I have met. He guesed and made our wishes come true before we even thought about them. We wish to have more time to check how far his limits goes… Kumari hosted us like a mother and unfortunately, we haven’t eaten better until we left Nisala Vila..The Rest of the Staff masters the art of appearing and disappearing In the only right moments.
Villa is genius located. Enough far from civilization to feel like In a desert Island and enough close to buy beer and wine for dinner and go surfing. The smart design of the Villa linked Sri Lanka accents and modern influences. Furthermore, arrangement of rooms is very practical.
We fall In love with the Villa and we hope we come back some day again.
Nisala Villa in perfect style fulfill the mission: “The pleasure of our clients is our priority”.

Simply amazing - you won't want to leave!
It would be hard to top Nisala Villa in Sri Lanka - the villa, setting and view, as well as the staff are all amazing. We had debated whether to stay here or Amanwella, and we could not have been more pleased in selecting Nisala Villa!
Jill, the owner in Hong Kong and also the villa architect, was beyond helpful in planning our stay and her local insights were invaluable in finalizing our itinerary.
There are 4 villas on the property, with the placement and design ensuring privacy. The villas are located up a private winding road that adjoins private temple lands, beyond a gated entry manned by security. I just can't say enough about the villa itself. It is gorgeous, set up from the beach, overlooking the Indian Ocean. The view, sound of the surf and the ocean breezes soothe the soul. You can easily sleep 8-10 and never feel crowded. Each bedroom has its own bath and the living spaces, including outdoors are luxurious and spacious. It was just my husband and I traveling, and we are already plotting our return with close friends.
The staff is top notch. Jerome, the butler provided personalized service and ensured we were welcome and cared for. He confirmed all our local plans the evening before to ensure we were well cared for outside the villa as well. He was assisted by Tharonga who also ensured a fabulous stay, and who provided special touches along the way.
We enjoyed the best meals we had in Sri Lanka, courtesy of their fabulous cook Ramya. We had breakfast and dinners at the villa, where all you need to do is put in a menu request, with dinners having a nominal charge. We requested local cuisine and were not disappointed. I would return to Nisala Villa just to shadow Ramya in the kitchen - it was that good! I believe the housekeeper, Dharshani, also had a hand in our fine dining, while she also ensured the villa was immaculately kept.
Jill offered her car and driver during our stay at only the cost of gas. We have really appreciated Wasantha as a driver and felt safe in his hands amidst the craziness of Sri Lankan roads, from our pick up in Galle to our drop off in Colombo. Wasantha went out of his way on multiple occasions to ensure we were taken care of - even helping us shop for a hopper pan and ingredients. While we were thousands of miles from Seattle, we could not have been made to feel more at home. We stayed 3 nights and only wished we had more time here. Just go - you won't be disappointed and you won't want to leave.
