Villalet – Australia’s premier direct online villa rental specialist - has some amazing specials on stunning, waterfront villas in some of Sri Lanka’s best beachside locations. Sri Lanka is emerging as the next big destination for family holidays and has arguably the best beaches in Asia with white sand and crystal-clear water. Team brand new luxury villas with sightseeing such as the tea plantations in the hill country, national parks and historic sites such as Sigiriya, and you have the ultimate family holiday. Villalet managing director David Anderson said Sri Lanka is the new frontier for Aussie family holidays because it combines picture perfect tropical beaches with a range of activities that are great fun for the whole family. “It’s a really great destination if you’ve been to Bali and Thailand and are looking for something just a little bit different,” he said.  “It has a real sense of the exotic adventure and is truly a fantastic place to visit as well as being a great location to relax and unwind.” Villas in Sri Lanka typically come with a full complement of staff including chef, housekeeper, butler, gardeners and security. The costs of food can be very affordable - the villa team will take your meal requests, shop at the local market for you, so you pay the local price. The chefs excel in Sri Lankan curries and other local dishes, but are also skilled at making western-style fare. Villalet currently has a number of specials for some of Sri Lanka’s most luxurious villas including Kadju House in Senimodera, Tangale where you can stay six nights, pay for five, from US$667 per night. Shower under a frangipani tree, luxuriate in a cinnamon spa or stroll down the hill to the beach in this stunning four-bedroom villa.

Villalet is a one-stop-shop for searching and booking luxury holiday villas in many destinations across Asia and the South Pacific. It is the only Australian website site dedicated solely to luxury villa rental making it easier to search, view and book a holiday villa. Anderson said approximately 80 per cent of Villalet customers are women and he works closely with clients to ensure everything they need is organised before they arrive.  “They are typically booking a family holiday where they can spend private time with their families, but can escape all the cooking and cleaning duties,” he added “Butlers, chefs and masseuse are very popular requests, along with pool fences, and personal car and drivers included with the villa rate.” All villas are verified by the Villalet team to ensure a hassle-free, luxury experience from the second you arrive at your holiday destination.   More Villalet Sri Lankan specials Talaramba Reef, stay five nights pay for four, from US$1200 per night.
