Saffron and Blue - The Villa

About Saffron & Blue

Saffron & Blue is the creation and holiday home of Ranil de Silva; an Ad man who has directed his creative energy into the project by painstakingly selecting the furniture, art, and everything in-between – to compliment the villa’s architecture and setting. This delightful four-bedroom villa in Sri Lanka is all about spaces and moods and places and hues, with a mix of bright, sunny areas and cool, secluded nooks and crannies.

Fabrics from Jim Thompson of Thailand are predominant, interspersed with sustainable handlooms from Sri Lanka’s very own Barbara Sansoni and specially sourced cactus silks from Morocco. Most of the furniture is of Sri Lankan origin and includes a collection of rare antiques, as well as many other bespoke pieces made from teak, mahogany and jack wood. The villa is also home to a tasteful gallery of art by known Sri Lankan artists, as well as lesser-known painters from India, Cambodia, China, Malaysia and Thailand.

You will be warmly looked after at Saffron & Blue by Rajeewa and Kumudu, who pride themselves in making every guest feel as welcome as one of the owner’s closest friends.  Along with chef Chamith, this charming duo take care of everything from serving meals and drinks throughout the day, to keeping the villa and grounds pristine, to organising cars or tuk-tuks for sightseeing trips.

Arrive at sunset and enjoy the spectacle of the vibrant skies reflected in the swimming pool. Unwind with a pre-dinner drink, then sit down to a hearty meal. Play your favourite music, watch a movie, or simply gaze up at the stars. Next morning, enjoy a refreshing dip in the pool or a walk along the beach. Tuck into a traditional Sri Lankan breakfast of string hoppers and roti, then spend the rest of the morning exploring the nearby village. Enjoy a late lunch of rice and curry like the locals, or simply settle for a sandwich or a bowl of pasta – followed by a mandatory siesta! Wake up and start all over again.

Everything at Saffron & Blue reflects great taste. But at the end of the day, it’s the small, personal touches that make this home truly special – and the generosity of an owner who proclaims mi casa es tu casa.

    What happens at Saffron & Blue doesn’t stay at Saffron & Blue. Going to the market by bus to buy crabs with Rajeewa is an experience I will treasure for as long as I live. It’s also a good story to tell friends back home. A jog in the neighborhood inspired me to adopt a classroom in the nearby village school. I go there with people who are close to me. We enjoy unwinding, catching up on the goss and bonding over games of cards and scrabble. That’s the beauty of this villa. It allows you to do whatever takes your fancy. If you want to sit under a tree and write a poem, you’re sure to be inspired. If you want to empty your mind of the hassles of work, you’ll find yourself doing just that. If it’s alone time or family time that you seek, it’s the perfect location. When you walk-in, you feel completely relaxed and feel you are already on holiday. The art, the furniture and the crockery… plus every other little detail is perfect. It’s a great reflection of taste and style. After 7 days, I found a new self. Time at Saffron & Blue is very special. It must be spent with someone special because you will feel the special you inside of you. Rajeewa and the team know to care for you, to anticipate your every need and to pamper you. The meals are unsurpassed. The memories will fill my stomach during the coming year. Everything at Saffron & Blue reflects great taste. It is the little details which makes Saffron & Blue truly special.
