Comilla Bungalow, Gampaha
About Comilla Bungalow, Gampaha
Comilla Bungalow is situated near the historic town of Wathurugama, and perched at the summit of a vast coconut estate, the Bungalow surveys verdant fields of pepper and thickets of tropical fruit trees. Birdwatchers will be delighted by the diversity of feathered friends who grace Comilla with their presence. An azure-blue peacock, one of the estate's longtime visitors will sometimes alight on the rooftop, welcoming his fellow guests with a thrilling display of his tail feathers. Those who prefer to turn inwards in their explorations can visit a series of ancient rock temples nearby and cleanse their souls through meditation sessions.
The century-old plantation bungalow has now been lovingly re-imagined as a luxury boutique hideaway, retaining its wood-hewn verandahs and Dutch period architecture while introducing a full range of modern conveniences. Century-old lychee trees frame an expansive view from the verandah - the very same scene that would have been enjoyed by the Stork family as they took their evening tea.
