The white & wooden main gate is in front of the beach. The signboard has bold & blue coloured letters and a painting of some Frangipani flowers. Guests can see the main house and two bungalows at the entrance. But still, the living area is covered by trees and bushes, that makes privacy.
The house provides a fast WiFi connection. The small library of one bookshelf invites to study information about Sri Lanka, but there are some foreign books too. Old Ceylonese easy chairs, ocean wind and the atmosphere arrange an afternoon nap in the veranda. Antique cabinets, tables, chests, decorative things and expansive paintings take minds back to colonial age.
Three individual beach houses, but introduced as beach bungalows. The architecture looks like the early 50s. Each one has a bed, a private bathroom with hot water and a spacious veranda, but two bungalows have an extra single bed. Large beds ensure comfort with luxury mattresses and well-designed mosquito nets. Guests can relax, read and enjoy in the expansive verandas. Bungalows furnished with antique furniture. The floors are very comfortable for feet because of the marble floor.
Tangalle beach is an edge for the Indian Ocean. The front line crescent shaped. Guests can walk for kilometres on the beach. Mornings and evenings are better to walk and run along there. The bathing spot is very safe in front of the villa, but it is okay for kids too. The soft and golden sand is perfect for kids to enjoy by doing some funny stuff. There can view a better perspective of the sky. People can explore the night sky very clearly by sitting or standing on the beach.
The restaurant has enough space and tables only for three groups. Wooden chairs and round tables add extra value. The best thing is guests are lucky to have their meals when looking at the beach. If eyes go further there may be a ship or a fishing boat.
Think a mature tropical garden in front of the beach. The garden proves still human loves nature. There are many trees with white Frangipani flowers.

Guests can have breakfast, lunch and dinner on their requests. They are rich in taste and healthy ingredients. Rice & curry very special among guests in Villa Araliya. Fruit juices, fruit salads and vegetable salads are a production of fresh fruits and vegetables in Sri Lanka. Fish, cuttlefish and prawn curries are fresh and mouthwatering. But they prepared with the best spices in Sri Lanka. Fresh curd made by cow milk is one of the favourite things for breakfast. Any guest can visit the kitchen then see how foods made.
