Waterland is a magnificently situated private estate in a quiet corner of Negombo with 4 villas and 1 luxury suite.

We have a full-time staff of 10.

Cross a picturesque white bridge, pass through the entry gates, and enter a tropical oasis of palm trees, flowering birds of paradise, and ornamental ginger.

The most common comment from guests about Waterland: "We wish we had stayed longer."

The space

The Peacock Villa is our largest villa.  The signature design element of the Peacock villa is its large triangular infinity-edge plunge pool.  Both bedrooms and the living room are air-conditioned. The 2 bedrooms, the living room, and the upstairs deck have views of both the canal and of the river.   The upstairs deck has outdoor seating.  In the evening, one can sit on the deck and watch the sunset over the ocean.  The pool terrace has 4 teak lounge chairs for those who enjoy sun-bathing.  The villa celebrates the peacock, a symbol of harmony.

Place is just as described BUT better! Excellent place to relax and rejuvenate away from the busy lifestyle in Sri Lanka. Food was amazing and the pool was clean. We would come back soon. Thank you for hosting us.

Thank you for staying at Waterland. How good to hear that you found the place to be very nice and private. Thank you for that feedback that the place was a little hard to find. We're sorry that your driver had some difficulty finding the place. We have now added Waterland to (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Maps so that drivers can find it more easily. We have also placed a map with directions on our webpage and we e-mail that map to guests after they make their reservation. For those guests arriving from the airport, we offer free airport pickup.

We had lovely stay at Mark Waterline villa. The design is very contemporary and love the open spaces - specially the bathrooms with rain shower . Set on the banks of river adds to the character along with attached plunge pool. The staff was extremely hospitable and attentive to all our needs Dinal and Gomez did a wonderful job of treating us like guests in their own home. The complementary breakfast was great and must try the hoppers ( Sri Lanka noddles) with curry . Ideal choice for family or romantic getaway where you can get tranquility and yet accessible ( 10 min tuk tuk ride ) to the happening spots on negombo beach

Thank you very much for your kind review and for being such good guests. We are delighted that you had lovely stay and that you enjoyed, the views, character, design, food, and service. Dinal and Gomez are indeed extraordinarily hard working and attentive. As with other things, it's people and relationships that matter most. We hope you will come again to stay at Waterland. In the meantime, good wishes for 2016! Mark
