Suriyawatta is named after the two large Tulip Trees that shade the south facing lawn and poolside. The house is situated on a three quarter acre elevated land with terraces down to a beautiful and swimmable beach, which is protected by a coral reef. We are only a 40-minute drive south of the UNESCO World Heritage Dutch Fort in the town of Galle, 5 minutes away from Tabrobane Island, and Weligama Bay and its surfing school and 10 minutes from Mirissa Beach.
