Magic from the moment we arrived....

Dear Paula Thank you so much for your kind and thorough review. You have enjoyed so much of what Meda Gedara offers and there is even more. Thanks to the location being set close to the main national parks for elephant, leopards and a huge variety of migrating birds as well as to ancient sites there will be much to see and enjoy when you return...if you can leave the villa. Word is spreading about Meda Gedara so please let us know as soon as you have dates in mind. Best regards Jack

Exceptional Island Paradise

Meda Gedara, a place of enchantment. From exquisite sandy beaches to coconut palms swaying in the breeze. Roshan (Manager and head chef) and his amazing team could not have done more for us. Roshan delighted us time and time again with his incredible dishes. The villa is sensational; from beautiful open plan living and eating areas to children’s heaven with a waterslide and media room. Nothing has been left out when designing this property. We will be back to Meda Gedara, Island Paradise.

Beatifully decorated, 7 bedroom beach villa

The attention to detail is apparent the moment you step through the large antique double fronted doors onto the beautiful hand-made Vietnamese tiles. Your gaze is immediately taken through the sitting area and into the garden with an incredible view of the alluring ocean. In between this staggering view, on a lower terraced deck, is the main swimming pool with sloping beach-inspired access ideal for small children as well as the more mature swimmer.

A teak staircase winds its way upstairs, past vast windows onto the 6-bedroom lined landing. Each bedroom is unique and filled with 4 poster beds, fitted mosquito nets, air con, comfortable seating, interesting curios and artwork; all bathrooms are delightful. A children’s bunk room cleverly has a larger bottom bed for a nanny. The master suite has an adjoining room with twin beds for smaller children.
Perfect for a couple without children, is another bedroom, charmingly housed in the Garden suite. It looks out across the lovely lawn on which many a SL vs ‘The rest of the World’ cricket match is held. An umpire’s hut is appropriately situated close to the action on the other side, whilst also doubling up as a look-out point to the beach, or as a shaded ‘refreshment pavilion’.

Hidden amongst the tropical planting lies a 74-foot water slide snaking its way into a plunge pool that rather geniously is separated from the main pool allowing hours of fun whilst the less frantic can relax in calm waters. A large terrace with comfortable loungers, provides ample tanning spots.

Discreetly positioned further down the garden, is a stunning and spacious Yoga pavilion with wonderful views out to sea. The beautifully landscaped garden ensures this is a gentle and quiet area perfect for yoga and meditation, whilst hammocks swing between the palm trees, down by the beach.

Returning to the house there is a brightly coloured and cushioned ‘TV room’ for exhausted children, it’s conveniently nestled right in the middle of the villa, it has a ‘peep window’ so that parents can check on snoozing kids without disturbing them. There is also a wonderful grown up ‘Cinema room’ with projector and huge screen.

The chef is excellent and cooks an expansive range of cuisine and is very happy to offer cooking lessons on site. They have created amazing set menus so that no decisions need to be made daily, there are also inspired vegetarian and vegan menus. They have a separate kids menu. The chef is supported by a fantastically efficient team of 7 staff, seamlessly working behind the scenes.
This villa encompasses every creature comfort, in abundance. A spoiling home away from home, with luxuriously large beds, reassuringly lovely linen and a shortage of nothing.

Meda Gedara is a fabulous house that exudes wonderful energy, and promises a fun and very comfortable holiday for any group, large or small, of all ages.
