Set amid 2.5 acres of tropical garden and coconut palms, Rock Villa is an enchanting, 170 year-old Walauwa (Heritage House) converted into a beachside boutique lodge. Ideally situated on a beautiful, un-crowded stretch of coastline, tranquil enough to attract nesting turtles and a vibrant and audible birdlife. The lodge is a combination of intimate ambience, soothing pace and honest, unpretentious service. The Rock Villa is the antithesis of big Chain Hotels yet is a convincing blend of modern creature comforts, colonial craftsmanship and cosmopolitan style.
'Taru Villas - Rock Villa' combines the flavors of old and new, seamlessly fusing modern creature comforts, colonial craftsmanship, and cosmopolitan style. High ceilings, rich wood finishes, and an unendingly cool breeze permeates every corner of a space that is just as a beachside villa should be - charming, exotic, tranquil. At this boutique hotel one gets to experience nature not as a luxury but as a necessity of the human spirit.

The signature Taru Villas' breakfast offers traditional Sri Lankan feast, to Continental assortments and health conscious 'clean' meals. The lunch menu is a selection ranging from lighter options such as soups and salads, to the Sri Lankan mezze. With locally caught fish and shellfish, any of the seafood centered dishes are 'must tries'. Dinner is a more extravagant three course affair that is specially created each evening to ensure that the senses will never be dulled by repetition.
