Taprobane Island was originally built in the 1920's by the romantically-named but self-styled Count de Mauny-Talvande. The island, with its neo palladian mansion, has played host to kings, queens, presidents, prime ministers, aristocracy, writers and eccentrics, giving it a very colorful history, which guests can now share.
The Island comprises two and a half acres of sheer tropical fantasy with nothing between it and the South Pole. Accommodation includes five en-suite bedrooms, with spacious living areas, balconies, verandahs, tropical gardens and a stunning infinity pool. A staff of five cater to your every need: In fact, we've noticed that rather than venturing out to explore the coast, our guests stay put on the island until their departure date, spending their entire time at Taprobane in luxury and service that is as discreet as it is
Sri Lanka’s only privately owned island. The No.1 address in the Indian Ocean.
