About us

Ratnakara is an exclusive villa on Sri Lanka’s most Southerly tip near Dondra Head Lighthouse. Its name is an ancient Sanskrit word for the Indian Ocean, the literal translation is “the creator of gems” or “mine of gems”. Perched on the edge of the Indian Ocean, Ratnakara is a modern day jewel.

A hillside paradise, Ratnakara was built in 2012 nestling in tropical trees above a small sandy bay and offers five large, luxury en-suite bedrooms. The design which mixes colonial features with modern, open-plan living has created a private, secluded property which is the ideal place in which to relax and recharge. With its spectacular infinity pool extending out in to the jungle, tranquil roof garden, large private balconies and extensive terracing, Ratnakara will nurture you with its healing powers of calmness and space; the perfect environment for rejuvenating a tired soul.
