Tropical luxury villas designed to feel like your home
Ambalama is a Sinhalese (an ethnic group native to Sri Lanka) word that translates into ‘a welcoming resting place for weary travellers and pilgrims’. After many years of living in Asia, Chris Kidd, has a vision to create a 21st century interpretation of the word “Ambalama” that centered around reconnecting with one’s self.
In order for guests to truly relax, Chris knew he couldn’t simply create tropical luxury villas – he had to create spaces that felt like homes. Every detail was taken into account to allow guests to rest and recharge—from the design of the villa to the interior furnishings, staffing and the guest liaison. Chris also knew the importance of connecting with his guests directly, which is why he continues to actively manage the business.
In 2006, Ambalama Sri Lanka was opened and its success led to the opening of Ambalama Bali in 2014. With over a decade of experience and an eye for detail, many of our guests return regularly to what they consider as their “home away from home.” Please read our Tripadvisor reviews for Sri Lanka and Bali to see more guest feedback.Explore Ambalama BaliExplore Ambalama Sri Lanka
“Often you take a holiday, but you don’t have a chance to truly relax. I want guests to feel like they’re home so they can fully recharge while experiencing a wonderful culture.”
