Ratnakara boasts five spacious and beautifully appointed bedroom suites, four king-sized doubles, and one twin. There is an option of adding a further single bed to the double rooms on request. All of the rooms are furnished in traditional style with handmade hard-wood furniture, bright Sri Lankan fabrics, and cooling polished-tile floors.

The open design of the house, very typical in Sri Lanka, precludes air-conditioning instead using natural air flow and ceiling fans to ensure you have a cool and comfortable nights sleep. Mosquitoes are not generally a problem at Ratnakara, however they do appear from time to time so all the beds are fitted with nets should you need them.

Retreat location

Ratnakara is an exclusive villa on Sri Lanka’s most southerly tip near Dondra Head Lighthouse. Its name is an ancient Sanskrit word for the Indian Ocean, the literal translation is “the creator of gems” or “mine of gems”. Perched on the edge of the Indian Ocean, Ratnakara is a modern day jewel.

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.

With its spectacular infinity pool extending out in to the jungle, tranquil roof garden, large private balconies and extensive terracing, Ratnakara will nurture you with its healing powers of calmness and space; the perfect environment for rejuvenating a tired soul.

Ratnakara is set on a small hillside overlooking a secluded bay well off the usual tourist track on Sri Lanka’s most southerly coast. The nearest village is Dondra, which is about one and a half kilometer away. Matara, the capital of Sri Lanka’s Southern Province, is a 15-minute tuk-tuk ride.
