Villa Armitage Hill is renowned as Sri Lanka’s most exclusive property that is wildly lavish, opulent, and individual. A complete one-off, there is no comparable villa experience on the island – privacy and exclusivity in the country don’t come any better than this. Once a planter’s home, the house has more than 200 years of history and has been featured in many guidebooks. Articles have been written on the house in many architecture magazines. In the last 30 years, it has been completely renovated under the guidance of the famous architect Kerry Hill.
You can now stay in this stunning holiday rental for as long as you want. It can sleep a group of 10 guests in its 5 bedrooms. The villa is on the outskirts of Galle, which is a major city on the southwestern coast of Sri Lanka.

It is close to the city center of Galle, but Armitage Hill still has lush greenery surrounding it. Classic elegance, the décor, views, and location… this property gets high scores in every category.
Luxury blends with great aesthetics making the sleeping areas special. All 5 bedrooms in Villa Armitage Hill are special. They all have large king beds, so an extended family of 10 guests can sleep easily in this property. They are in a separate pavilion away from the common areas of this plantation house.
