For people that really want to escape, Nil Manel floating villa (over 1,000sq m) is the perfect accommodation. Floating in the middle of a lake, this villa was designed and built by one of Sri Lanka’s leading luxury yacht manufacturers. The villa is decorated with elegantly understated wood panelling and simple white fabrics, that won’t detract from the breath-taking views. The bedroom has a double bed and four glass walls, so you can take in the view in complete comfort. Alternatively, enjoy the panoramic view of the serene lake and surrounding forest filled with tropical birds while dining on the the outdoor deck, or relaxing in the pool. The bathroom has both a walk-in shower and bath tub. Should you want your feet back on dry land, there is a 24 hour ferry service at your beck and call to take you to the main hotel. The villa comes with a private butler service, free WiFi, air-conditioning, a safe, a minibar with free bottled water, and tea- and coffee-making facilities. An extra bed for guests aged 13 and above is possible for US $55 per night.
