Saldana Villa is built in the Colonial Dutch Style–with towering pillars, an expansive veranda, high archways, and soaring timber ceilings. Saldana features two spacious double suites on either side of a luxurious sitting room, which are beautifully decorated with antiques, artwork, and furnishings from South Asia and beyond.

Enjoy views of the sea from the comfort of the sitting room, under fans that provide respite from the tropical heat. The sea-view veranda at the back of the villa offers a variety of areas to relax during both day and night.

Saldana invites fun—a place to enjoy the company of friends in a luxurious setting and a comfortable base to explore the many beaches, sights, and attractions surround Galle. Never find yourself far from luxury and comfort at Saldana.


Saldana offers 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. There are 2 Master Suites with king beds and an additional third bedroom with two single beds. Each bedroom is ensuite with an A/C unit and overhead fan. Each of the Master Suites has its own sea-facing veranda with private sitting area.

Between the Master Suites, a tastefully-decorated sitting room features antique Sri Lankan furnishings alongside modern amenities, giving the villa an essential modern touch. Upon entering, you are taken aback by breathtaking views of the sea as you indulge in barefoot luxury.

Our sea-view timber deck is bordered by a grassy lawn and is just steps away from a private beach. The pool also offers gorgeous views of the beach and plenty of lounging opportunities. At night, the pool and garden come alive, giving the property an enchanting glow.

The chef at Saldana is comfortable cooking western dishes, but excels at cooking traditional Sri Lankan cuisine—eat rice and curry to your hearts delight!

Order fresh fish and seafood straight from the local market, or even better from the fishermen who come to the villa to sell their catch in the morning.
