The island is just a 30 minute drive south of the Southern Provinces capital, Galle - home of the historic UN World Heritage site of Galle Fort. Access to the island from the coast is usually made by wading through the surf on foot, or by some, on elephant or sedan chair! Amazingly, there is nothing between the island and the South Pole.

The island with its neo palladian mansion has played host to kings, queens, presidents, prime ministers, aristocracy, writers and eccentrics, giving it a very colorful history, which guests can now share. The Island comprises 2 ½ acres of sheer tropical fantasy with nothing between it and the South Pole.
