Idyllic golden beaches rolling away to sun-kissed blue waves fringing Sri Lanka’s coastal belt — this is where Mosvold Villa lies, nestled in the town of Ahangama. It’s an area famed for the tranquil sight of the fading tradition of stilt fishing, and this coastal town is the perfect base for exploring the south of the country. Mosvold Villa — where vintage chic comes together with upscale luxury — is the perfect getaway for any traveller looking to be pampered after a long day of sightseeing.

And there certainly is a lot to see and do. Well known for its surf breaks, Ahangama is a haven for surfing, with waves for beginners as well as seasoned surfers. A day of riding the waves can come to an idyllic end with drinks on the beach followed by a gastronomic fusion of Western, Asian and local flavours dished up by Mosvold’s culinary maestros.

Each of the villa’s rooms comes with a terrace that opens out to the sparkling Indian Ocean. For an extra dose of pampering, guests can opt for suites that come complete with a plunge pool and whirlpool bath. For travellers not keen on straying too far, Mosvold offers massages, spa treatments, and yoga and surf lessons, all within its premises.

For those looking to explore further, whales and dolphins abound in the waters off the coast of Mirissa, just a few miles away. An early morning start gets travellers to the middle of the sea, for sightings of the majestic blue whale, pods of dolphins and other marine wildlife. For viewings of land-based mammals, animal lovers are spoilt for choice with the nearby Sinharaja Forest Reserve and Yala and Udawalawe national parks — both can be reached within a day of travel.

A quiet day can be spent strolling through the historical, archaeological and architectural heritage monument Galle Fort, or observing the local artisans crafting one-of-a-kind masks or absorbed in the delicate art of lacemaking.

Mosvold Villa offers guests so much to see and do, and since it’s free from bustling crowds, Ahangama is the perfect location for visitors to settle down for a few days. Mosvold Villa really does ensure an unforgettable experience in the stunning south of Sri Lanka.
