A secluded property in Wadduwa that serves up the perfect blend of Sri Lankan and Western hospitality
By Marianne David
A beachside getaway located just an hour’s drive away from Colombo, Inidi Leisure is a private paradise in Wadduwa that perfectly combines luxury and serenity, complemented by personalised service and delicious culinary offerings.
Inidi Leisure comprises two beautiful villas, offers expansive views of the Indian Ocean, and is enveloped in the sounds of the sea – ensuring serenity and a complete break from the cacophony of the city.
Each villa has four bedrooms, four bathrooms (two with Jacuzzis), a kitchen, living room, dining room, swimming pool, sun decks, and breathtaking views and can accommodate eight persons, totalling 16 in both, which makes it perfect for families or groups of friends who wish to party or unwind quietly in complete privacy.
It’s a lovely location to indulge in one’s beverage of choice while relaxing in the pool, on the lawn, or in the privacy of one’s room, watching the sun set and the waves crash on the shore – or even catch up on one’s favourite shows.
The experienced and discreet staff members ensure that all guest expectations are met. Services include a butler, a private chef, housekeeping, and security.
The culinary offering at Inidi Leisure is expansive and excellent – from impressive Sri Lankan spreads to Western, Thai, and Chinese dishes and a whole lot more.
The Sri Lankan meals are, of course, a riot of colour. If you opt for a local lunch, it will comprise a perfectly-matched selection of meats, seafood, vegetables, salads, and accompaniments that blend marvellously. The wide array served up for breakfast is just as impressive, with milk rice, coconut roti, string hoppers, roast bread, and curries to match, along with lots of fresh fruit.
From succulent soups to sizzling seafood dishes, poolside snacks, and sweet delights, the food here is sure to satisfy.
Things to do
While Inidi Leisure is the ideal place to do nothing but relax and unwind as you indulge in fine beverages and culinary offerings, for those interested in a more active holiday, a variety of excursions are on offer – ranging from water sports to whale watching – provided through reputed operators.
Inidi Leisure is owned by Nalin Samarawickrama and managed by Villa Manager Chandrika De Saram. See www.inidileisure.com for more information about this fabulous seaside property.
