Shower under a Frangipani tree, luxuriate in a cinnamon-walled spa or stroll down the hill to the beach. Kadju House is serene, relaxed and intimate. Overlooking a pristine crescent-shaped beach, the house offers four en-suite bedrooms, an Ayurvedic spa and an infinity pool with sweeping sea views. The design blends a simple tropical aesthetic with modern luxury. The five full-time staff includes a chef/housekeeper, steward, maid, gardener and night security. The house is located in a cashew grove just outside the fishing village of Tangalle and close to nature reserves and temples.
'One must be absolutely modern,' wrote the poet Rimbaud, and in this villa you find a new conception of the Good Life: simple and visionary in its clarity. Designed to be integrated completely into its environment, it contains nothing superfluous, built from only necessary forms, almost more a fortuitous configuration of materials in nature than a manmade structure - something found. Walk through the rooms: without knowing it, you move from inside to outside, from outside to inside.
Walk down to the white-sand beach and help a group of fishermen pull in a net of shining silver fish; afterwards, relax for a massage in the Ayurvedic spa, or swim in the pool where an infinite perspective looks out over the Indian Ocean, framed by palm trees filled with parrots and monkeys. If you are dreaming of adventures further afield, pilot a flat-bottomed punt through a bird sanctuary in a mangrove lagoon; visit a preserve home to herds of elephants; or bathe in a nearby river and enjoy a picnic lunch wrapped in a banana leaf. When you return, fishermen have brought just-caught lobsters to the doorstep. Be silent, drink the milk from an orange coconut, and listen to the peacocks' melancholy cry. And then, at sunset, the landscape dissolves into pure form, and you dissolve with it.
