Luxe lunch at Era Beach is a good way to kill an afternoon. We first saw this place on the internet last year when we googled around on colonial villas in Sri Lanka. And what a beauty. The details of everything is super nice, floors and doors are of untreated wood, the pool is in the courtyard and the color of the tiles matches the grey doors. This quiet design villa is located in Thalpe and they have a restaurant and a pool open for the public. A pool ticket is 500rps and lunch is affordable. Our tip is to head get a pool ticket and swim during the the day, have a beer or a coconut and then order a late lunch before the lunch menu closes at 18:00. Of course you can also get the dinner, but the lunch menu is still really good and comparatively good priced!

A beer or a coconut at this pool is definetly not the worst way to spend an afternoon
with the 500rps pool ticket you also get towels and sunbeads
during the sundown a huge school of birds beautifully flew over us and down along the beach towards the orange sky, amaaazing
if you order before 6 you can eat from the lunch menu which has a good selection of dishes at a resonable price
like this burger for 675rps. not the best one on sri lanka, but it was goood
