Nestled between the well-known coastal outposts of Mirissa and Matara, is the idyllic and sleepy village of Kamburgamuwa on the southern coast of Sri Lanka which is as close as one can get to Paradise on this planet. And it is here that we find Casa MiJa is a contemporary villa perched on what can best be described as one of the most astounding and breathtaking stretches of unspoilt beach on the southern coast of Sri Lanka and has been designed as an exclusive, luxurious retreat ideally suited for couples, families and corporate offsites.
Loosely translated, Casa MiJa quite simply means ‘my daughter’s home’ and the inspiration for this villa are the twins Miya and Jade whose parents, avid and experienced travelers were struggling to find a bespoke holiday experience which did not involve a series of veneered tours and madding crowds.They found themselves returning to Sri Lanka annually falling in love with the island with all it had to offer. Each journey revealed yet another layer of her authenticity which resulted in them literally stumbling upon this half acre beach front property. Two years from that discovery and the property is now ready to receive and embrace her guests.
There are 4 types of rooms which can be rented individually or collectively. Ground Floor Rooms have one Queen Bed suite and a One Twin Single bed room which have connecting doors. Designed with our senior guests or young families in mind. Second Floor Rooms : The jewel on the property is the Queen Bed Ocean View suite. The centerpiece room has the best view of the ocean. We have created two family lofts that can sleep 5 guests comfortably; one of which can be connected to the Queen Ocean Suite.
In designing the property, every type of guest has been thought about. Suites have been designed with couples, families and seniors in mind. Each air-conditioned suite comes with flat screen televisions, cable TV, JBL docks for mobile devices with en-suites that have rain showers and are overtly generous in terms of size and provision of amenities such as hair dryers and aroma therapy burners.
The living area of the residence includes a mix of seating providing guests with social opportunities or the perfect space to fulfill the ultimate temptation of a traveler — idleness. Wireless JBL speaker pods strategically located through out the house can be accessed via a docking station or via Bluetooth. The 20m lap pool ensconced within the lush garden of the property can be accessed via the main living room or the spiral staircase which provides the Ocean view suites on the second level with unfettered access to it as well the jewel of the property: MiJa Beach. The seven apostles (sea rocks) which rest in front of the property provide guests the idle perch to soak in the surf, dry in the sun and marvel at all that rests in front of them.
The decision has been taken to include only breakfast as complimentary enabling the guests to be able to explore the local fare. Be it Hoppers in the morning washed down with delectable tea or a fresh lobster or crab curry in the evening, the resident chef caters to your needs. The menu is kept simple and the only choice guests need to make is whether you accompany the chef to experience purchasing sea food from the fish mongers.
