Overview

Sri Lanka is the land of glory, history and white sandy beaches waiting to be discovered by the world. The best place to experience luxury and hospitality in the midst of these wonders of nature is the Apa Villa Illuketia. The plantation resort is situated at about 5 Kms. from Galle Fort. There are four suites in the main house and two suites at the separate Pond House overlooking a lotus pond. The compound sits on ten acres of matured gardens and rice fields. The resort is truly a botanical wonderland. Tall trees, majestic bamboo and giant heliconias loom over flowering shrubs, creepers and ferns.

Illuketia’s cuisine is designed to incorporate the fresh produce combining the clever use of local herbs and spices. Fruits cuts, vegetables, rice and herbs used in the cuisine are all organically grown in the estate. Relish a host of Sri Lankan dishes that include garden curries, fish, shrimp, squid and lobster as well. Lunch is usually snacks, toasted sandwiches or salads followed by a sumptuous three- to four-course dinner. The resort’s chefs are also well known for their desserts, cakes and cookies. Guests can relax in the 25-meter long (75 feet) swimming pool or lay on comfortable deck chairs and cushions scatted on the lawns. Cooking classes for traditional Sri Lankan cuisine are also available on request. Another highlight of the resort is its richness in natural wonders. One can find 156 bird species, 556 tropical plants, 20 mammals, pond fishes and a variety of reptiles, land monitor lizards and frogs living discreetly within the boundaries.
