Hi, my name is Charitha and I am the founder of Serendipity escapes. We are a family run company based in Buckinghamshire, UK.
I was born in Colombo and spent the very early part of my life in Sri Lanka. My family moved to the UK almost 40 years ago. With many early childhood memories of a carefree life in Colombo, followed by countless holidays there, Sri Lanka is a very special place for me. It is a place my own children now love and enjoy visiting year on year.
Sri Lanka is a country with immense natural beauty. I truly believe that "Sri Lanka has it all"! - a history dating back to ancient civilisations and stunning scenery so diverse that within a few hours you could travel from the sun trapped beaches of the east coast to the chilly hill country mountains of Nuwara Eliya.
Set up in 2004, our collection has grown from a handful of privately owned villas to over forty properties. Some are still privately owned (mainly by expats) and used as their own private holiday retreats, and many are owned by investors and run solely as holiday rentals.
All our villas are unique and offer something special for everyone. Whether you are looking for breathtaking views over Weligama Bay, a tranquil setting amongst paddy fields, or a stunning ocean front location in Galle- we believe we have chosen some of the best in the country for you.
We have either visited or stayed at all the villas you will find here. If a villa is not of a standard we would expect on holiday, you will not find it here. And most importantly, they are all clean and offer an excellent level of service.
We hope you enjoy the villas on offer. Please do email us with any questions you may have. If you are not sure about where to stay, we would be happy to make some suggestions.
I look forward to welcoming you as a guest of Serendipity escapes.
