All of the rooms are furnished in traditional style with handmade hard-wood furniture, bright Sri Lankan fabrics, and cooling polished-tile floors.

A hillside paradise, Ratnakara was built in 2012 nestling in tropical trees above a small sandy bay and offers five large, luxury en-suite bedrooms. The design which mixes colonial features with modern, open-plan living has created a private, secluded property which is the ideal place in which to relax and recharge.
