Boutique, Southern Coast, USD 200 to 500

Just next to Sun House is its sister property, the Dutch House also known as Doornberg, the original structure dating back to 1717. At  120km from Colombo, and  160 km from the airport, the Dutch House is an architectural masterpiece. 

The Dutch house, belonging to the Dutch colonial times was recently renovated by the renowned architect, Channa Daswatte and started operations as a hotel in 2005. The structure has remained the same, and Channa has only added in glory to its elegant yet simple design.

This boutique hotel is no doubt one of my favourites, owing to the absolute calmness and yet majestic elegance it radiates. It is a journey   back in time but coupled with all  the modern comforts. The hotel is exclusively luxurious in its own unique  way, completely out of the ordinary and no doubt a new experience. It is a perfect base to experience Sri Lanka. A great retreat to relax, after a long day of touring. 

The polished cemented floors and the clay-tiled roof with its simple furnishings all add to the experience of a by-gone era still very much alive in this part of the country. The beautifully maintained garden and a gloriously inviting pool are there to complete your experience in this boutique hotel.

The house consists of 4 rooms, all air-conditioned and complete with stereo and Internet facilities. All are open to the garden and beautifully furnished in colonial antique furniture.  

All rooms have attached bathrooms with bath and shower and are very spacious. Dinner is at the Sun House restaurant and you can select from a wide variety of menus. The business centre is there to keep you updated on your business activities back at home.
