Taprobane Island

4 stars


Described by Conde Nast Traveller as "an impossibly romantic island villa eccentrically accessible only by wading through the sea", Taprobane Island is a unique jewel in the Indian Ocean. Originally built during the 1920s by the Count de Mauny-Talvande, Taprobane Island is a neo-classic palladian mansion like no other. Purposely built to host important guests such as kings, queens, prime ministers, presidents and members of the aristocracy of the time, the luxuriously-idyllic Taprobane Island was an inspiration to writers due to its very colourful history and rather eccentric and famous guests.This place is so unique and popular among the rich and the famous that even Australian singer, Kylie Minogue, inspired by her stay here, composed a song about the island titled "Taprobane (Extraordinary Day)."

Now all guests can get a taste of that luxury in this private island (Sri Lanka's only privately owned island) comprising two and a half acres of dreamy tropical landscape with nothing but the bluest of seas between it and the South Pole. Lavish accommodation is provided in the form of five very exclusive en-suite guest rooms, all boasting spacious living areas, panoramic balconies, verandahs, exuberant gardens and a gorgeous, breathtaking infinity swimming pool. A team of only five highly qualified and very attentive members of staff will cater to guests' every need and pamper them to the max from the very moment they set foot on the island to the moment they leave.
