Country roads, Take me home…

..Hmmm…maybe not!
Country boats, take me to Srilanka, ..
To the place
I think I can belong
boutique resort!


[John Denver purists – no hard feelings, eh?!]

Almost ancient garden


The ‘green’ of the pool


Fancy a lemonade in the veranda?

Or, would you rather catch a quick nap?

I can ‘feel’ walking barefoot on this floor

Srilanka is south of south of India! No wonder, architectural traditions are similar!
Inner pond

Look inside over the pink!

Look outside over the pink!!

And all I have to do, is dream…

… dream dream dream..

Orange corner for morning cuppa

Brass door lock (there is a word for this but for the life of me, I can not remember it right now!)

Dosai, a little marmalade and some flowers complete my experience!



Another gem from Srilanka – Apa Villea Illuketia

  1. ahh…srilanka….went to colombo early this year for a project. that courtyard with pond carries bawa’s style.

  2. Thanks so much for you note Neece! It really helps to know what readers are enjoying or not liking much on An Indian Summer! 🙂

    Do drop by again..will look forward to *hear* from you 🙂

  3. What a find! This resort is lovely. The design is so simple and vibrant with the saffron and fuschia…and a kick of pattern on the bedspreads…wow!
    I have really been enjoying your blog, especially the Indian posts:)

  4. What a superb find!!! the pics are gorgeous as usual- the place looks like a dream. My frinds have been saying srilanka for a while- maybe i should listen to them- also your Indian design bloggers heading there is a deadly idea 🙂

  5. Love the pink cushions in the open verandah and the ‘Mitham’ the central courtyard….

    All your Srilankan finds are amazing:-)
    Have a great week:-)
