Elysium Sri Lanka

Overview

This magnificent boutique villa hotel, located directly on the Indian Ocean and in close proximity to Galle Fort, sits discreetly amongst the very best and most luxurious in Asia. Designed by a renowned Australian architect, and having recently undergone extensive renovation and improvement, Elysium offers the perfect combination of elegant and rejuvenating ultra-luxury escapism by the Indian Ocean.

Accommodation

Elysium offers a wealth of living and dining space , both indoors and in the multiple exterior spaces in the gardens and by the pool and ocean. The elegant interiors are full of antiques and art from all over Asia and comprise part of the owners’ vast collection.

The main building comprises a formal dining room and home cinema room on the ground floor and a vast formal living room upstairs, with an outdoor balcony, library and billiards table, surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows which offer panoramic views of the Indian ocean and Sri Lanka's finest sunsets. An elegant poolside pavilion and bar provides an ideal place for meals, cocktails and quiet afternoon reading. The covered beach pavilion, along with the beach patio, bar and beach deck, which directly overlook the ocean provide the perfect venue for sunset cocktails, dining under the stars or simply basking in the rising and setting sun.

Dining

At Elysium guests have myriad dining options that range from having their meals in the formal dining room or more casually in the outside pavilions, on the beach deck, by the pool or indeed anywhere in the gardens.

Elysium is staffed with excellent chefs who combine to serve a range of Western and Asian dishes. Enjoy a perfect eggs Benedict for breakfast, wonderful Sri Lankan and Indian curries for lunch, fresh grilled tiger prawns and crab, Japanese Tuna sashimi, Italian pasta dishes or have our staff organize a beach barbeque.

All food at Elysium is sourced by the staff from regular and trusted suppliers and ingredients are bought fresh and to order. We do not allow food to be brought on to the premises by guests but our chefs are able to accommodate most palates and special dietary requirements. What we would request is that you discuss your requirements with our manager.
