Kaleliya | First Class
Casa Heliconia’s self-styled ‘jungle glam’ offers the best of both worlds: idyllic rural surroundings with convenient access to the area’s top attractions. Close to Colombo airport and en route to Kandy and the Cultural Triangle, this bijou boutique is ideal for anyone seeking somewhere quiet to unwind between adventures.
Named for the vibrant heliconia flowers which bloom in the hotel gardens, Casa Heliconia’s pavilions provide secluded space for three couples or a family with children over 12 years old. Pagoda Gold, just steps away from the sheltered infinity pool, feels bright and modern with carefully-chosen antiques giving it a vintage chic. White walls and crisp, dark beams contrast with lavish gold panels, glass chandeliers and rich silks to create contemporary luxury. The exposed copper pipes in the open-air shower area bring cutting-edge style.
The Temple Angkor suite gives the impression of historic splendour; polished wood covers every surface, and stained-glass windows, stately portraits and elaborate carvings add to the gothic atmosphere. While the indoors WC and vanity are modern design, the outdoor shower area, complete with copper urn, brings back the old-world charm. There is the option of having meals prepared in the villa’s small traditional kitchen and served on your private terrace for a bespoke dining experience.
The sheltered infinity pool has views across the rice paddies below, blissful Ayurvedic massages can be arranged in the wellness area, and the charmingly-named Doll House multi-media pavilion is the perfect spot for enjoying a film or two. All meals are freshly prepared to your taste using local ingredients, and enjoyed outdoors with views across the gorgeous jungle garden.
We SayJust 25 km from Colombo airport, this is a great option for a bit of pre- or post-flight pampering.
