  • About this holiday

    In the lush, green interior of western Sri Lanka, Casa Heliconia is a charming and romantic boutique hotel in the thick of the jungle. Only a short distance from Colombo Airport and in reachable proximity to the cultural highlights of central Sri Lanka, this is a lovely stop off point for a romantic getaway amid paddy fields and jungle scenery. With only two guestrooms, a swimming pool and a massage area, the experience is low key and intimate.

    Hotel description

    In the lush, green interior of western Sri Lanka, Casa Heliconia is a charming boutique hotel in the thick of the jungle. Only a short distance from Colombo Airport and in reachable proximity to the cultural highlights of central Sri Lanka, this is a lovely stop off point for a romantic getaway amid paddy fields and jungle scenery. Casa Heliconia offers an out-of-the-ordinary stay, with its cute and quaint pavilions are perfect for experiencing the simple rural lifestyle on the borders of the farming village of Kaleliya. Nestled in amongst an exotic overgrowth, the pavilions hold just two bedrooms: Temple Angkor and Pagoda Gold. As their names suggest, they are a treasure trove of vibrant colours, antiques and eclectic art collections, all of which take inspiration from both western and Asian influences. The two pavilions are set apart from one another in the grounds, each featuring a private veranda and plenty of living and dining areas. Temple Angkor also comes with a private kitchen and barbeque area in which guests can have meals cooked for them and receive lessons on the preparation of Sri Lankan curries. The dining experience at Casa Heliconia includes fresh fruit platters for breakfast, lunches of salads and sharing dishes, while evening meals consist of Sri Lankan-inspired cuisine prepared using only fresh, local ingredients. Half board is included at this hotel. Elsewhere in the grounds are two communal areas; The Doll’s House is a sitting room with deep sofas and a TV, while Pavilion Neapolitan houses a small infinity pool encircled by shady sun loungers that take in views across the paddy fields. A charming hideaway from which to discover small-town Sri Lanka and beyond.
