If you’re looking for a beach villa with lots to do nearby, Tusk offers just that. Focusing its energies on living simply beside the sea, Tusk’s few modern distractions mean that time stands still and this provides a refreshing change from the fast pace of everyday life. Here you can merge into your surroundings without a worry as to what’s going on in the world around you and enjoy a gentler pace of life as you read book after book beside the sea. Footsteps on the beach are all that signify the presence of others, as the sea becomes your main focus and its vibrant energy a source of deep relaxation. Entertainment is left up to you entirely, though with so much on your doorstep here – restaurants, shops, beaches, dive shops, temples and activities – you’ll perhaps be overwhelmed by the choice.

Built by Bruce Fell-Smith in 1993, Villa Tusk was the first of many notable villas in Sri Lanka designed by this Australian architect. At the request of friends – a pair of holidaying couples who had fallen in love with this picturesque crescent-shaped stretch of beach, which so resembled an elephant’s tusk that the village (Dalawella – literally translated from Singhalese as ‘Tusk Beach’), and then the villa became named after it – Fell-Smith designed for them a dream home where they could permanently enjoy the beauty of their favourite tropical shoreline. He dissected the main house with a long corridor designed to divide it equally in two so that each couple had half of the house to themselves. The front portion – home to a living room, equipped kitchen and furnished verandas – were convivially shared.

Since then, two more bedrooms were created to give four in total. Although the house has recently been renovated, the Sri Lankan antiques and hand-crafted window and door frames have been carefully preserved for posterity. Today it offers plenty for families and friends to enjoy; rooms are equitable (except for the single bedroom, which is more suitable for kids), there are a multitude of cushy relaxing spots within sight or earshot of the sea and there’s even a small palm-shaded garden with pavilion – perfect for little toddlers. The property comes with a cook who prepares breakfast (included) and other meals – predominantly Sri Lankan cuisine – charged at cost price).


All units are air conditioned and feature a seating area. Some units include a terrace and/or patio with sea or garden views. Some units also have a kitchen, fitted with a fridge. There is a private bathroom with a bath or shower and free toiletries in every unit. Bed linen is available.

Villa Tusk also includes a sun terrace. Guests can enjoy a meal at the on-site restaurant. The property also offers packed lunches.

The area is popular for snorkeling and windsurfing. Galle Dutch Hospital is 5 km from Villa Tusk.
