I adored Sisindu C; it’s exactly how a beach house should be. Its lovely openness and its zingy interior design match the feel of the place perfectly. Views of the crashing waves can be enjoyed from almost every room, and nothing beats lying back in bed and gazing at the deep blue sea. Clever use of space makes the house feel really big – considering the size of the living space, this could easily be a three- or a four-bedroom place. Having a walled garden and stretch of lawn, make this a wonderful family villa too (the daybeds in the bedrooms could sleep an extra child if required), and if the kids grow tired of the pool there’s the wide beach to explore just outside, although the sea is too rough for swimming here most of the year.

One of my favourite features of Sisindu C is all its great lounging spots – the deep sofa in the living room was sublime for chilling out; the upstairs balcony was perfect for sneaking away; but what I loved most of all were the towel-covered mattresses beside the pool – here you could just lie back, snooze, read a book or gaze at the sky; magical. The small staff team includes a cook so you don’t have to worry about making meals (even though the kitchen is very well-equipped for it). He has enough of a menu to keep you satisfied for days but is always keen to learn new dishes too; and if you fancy a complete change, there are a few restaurants close by. We only tried breakfast at the villa, but were assured by the comments in the guestbook that the cooking was very good.

Highlights

For a two-bedroom villa, the space here is totally heavenly. The sea views – from every room – are sublime and we loved watching the waves make their foamy, thudding journey onshore (the sounds are quite epic at night). The beach stretches a long way in each direction so it’s great for jogging and long exploratory strolls.

Surprises

You can’t really swim in the sea in front of the villa, but there are swimming spots that you can walk to within 10-20 minutes. We headed to the lagoon in front of Why Beach Restaurant, which we would highly recommend for lunch (Italian cuisine), cocktails or just a change of scene. Being close to the main road means there’s occasional traffic noise and the turtle hatchery pumps fresh seawater into their tanks every few days, which can result in some slightly grating mechanical droning.

My family and I had the lovliest holiday at Sisindu C. The staff were fantastic, food superlative, beach pristine and the weather divine. Quite honestly I cant think of anything that would have improved our stay. It was just wonderful.
