About Us

Sielen Diva is the result of a family’s deep love for Sri Lanka and their wish for others to experience a very special place.

The owners, who are of Sri Lankan heritage, are a couple who honeymooned in the country and continued to holiday here as a family once their daughters were born.

Despite visiting many other countries, it was Sri Lanka to which they returned time and time again. When asked for travel recommendations Sri Lanka was the first country they would suggest. All four family members are very different individuals and yet this tiny country had something for each of them: delicious and distinct local cuisine, wildlife tours, historical sites, indulgent wellness treatments.

A holiday home initially seemed a natural step, on the Southern Coast with its many attractions and convenient location.

A stunning plot of land was found, and a hotel was built to highlight everything glorious about the location: the boundless view of the Indian Ocean, large grounds and the sound of the waves crashing against the shore.

The hotel has been decorated personally by the owners rather than by professional interior decorators. This was a deliberate choice, as the family had very specific ideas of what they would need for a perfect holiday, and what they hope a holiday maker would require: a property designed as a small/ luxury hotel.

Armchairs were chosen for comfortable sitting whilst reading as books feature heavily during vacations. There is a pool table in the games room because a spirited father-daughter match takes place every holiday.

It is hoped that you not only enjoy your stay, but Sielen Diva is the place you create your own cherished memories and it becomes the place you find yourself recommending.

Sielen Diva is managed and marketed on behalf of the owners by Cantaloupe & Co.

#LoveSriLanka by the Sri Lanka Tourism Alliance launches amid support from Sri Lankans & Travellers around the world.

In the wake of the Easter Sunday outrage, several hoteliers, including Villa Sielen Diva came together to form the Sri Lanka Tourism Alliance, launching its #LoveSriLanka initiative.
