Resplendent Ceylon launches new brand Reverie

Kayaam House

Two new properties opening on the island’s south coast.

SINGAPORE — From the masterminds behind Sri Lanka’s leading luxury hotel collection, Resplendent Ceylon, comes Reverie – a collection of laid-back boutique properties which embrace the slow pace of life that the island embodies. The collection was launched with the opening of Kayaam House in Tangalle in January 2023, and Ahu Bay in Ahungalla in February 2023. The properties are located just two hours apart along the south coast, famed for its miles of golden sand and palm-fringed coastlines, abundance of marine life and ocean-washed shores.

“The core brand values remain the same as Resplendent, as Reverie is a sister brand and born out of the same family and concept. Our offerings in terms of guest experience and service will be mindfully and personally paced. Reverie however will focus on smaller, intimate properties across Sri Lanka,” said Malik J. Fernando, Managing Director, Resplendent Ceylon.

Ahu Bay.

Perched on Ahungalla Point between two secluded bays on the south-west coast is Ahu Bay, a relaxed beach house for free-spirits, made up of a collection of four suites and three three-bedroom beach villas, available either on a rent-by-the-room or exclusive use basis. Pared-back, rustic interiors will feature neutral sandy tones, rattan furniture, recycled wood accents and plenty of natural greenery. A casual all-day dining venue which will serve Sri Lankan and international favourites, surrounded by manicured lawns, beach cabanas, a Sanctuary Spa and a shimmering infinity swimming pool.

Kayaam House situated on the south coast in Tangalle, is a spiritual sanctuary in a secluded spot just steps from the vast Indian Ocean, home to six Ocean Rooms, two Palm Suites and a chic, Bawa-inspired 20-cover restaurant and bar. The Kayaam House journey focuses on restoration and recovery with wellness as a key part of every guest experience. Ayurveda is an integral part of the wellness program, offering massages, treatments, specialized diet programs, and lifestyle transformations. The Ayurveda experience focuses on healing, cleansing, relaxation, and revitalization. At Kayaam, your body and spirit undergo a holistic transformation with monitored Ayurvedic meals and traditional massages. According to Ayurveda, the universe comprises five elements, forming three doshas within each individual, determining their unique personality.

Expertly curated by the local team, each of Reverie’s properties will offer soulful experience menus that offer guests the chance to completely, mindfully and respectfully immerse themselves into Sri Lanka’s rich cultural heritage.

These openings will closely be followed by a third property, Kelburne Estate, set to open in December 2024 as a collection of hillside cottages in the tea carpeted mountains of Haputale.
