Perched atop Point Rendezvous Estate, with sweeping views of the Caribbean Sea and the magnificent southern coast, Eco Serendib offers eight individually designed and elegantly appointed suites that incorporate energy-saving, green elements, promising a distinctive experiential retreat.
Mirroring the exceptional vistas and accommodations, the amenities and services of Eco Serendib Villa and Spa will exceed even the most discerning guest's desires.

Special Opening Offer
Through November 15, 2011, guests can enjoy the Villa for their exclusive use starting at $2,000.00 per night with seven night minimum for the Presidential suite (maximum two guests). The rate begins at just $19,900 for full use of all eight suites (maximum 16 adults) for seven nights. These rates are exclusive of tax and service. The room rate is commissionable to registered travel consultants. Eco Serendib will announce signature themed epicurean and spa/wellness programs in the upcoming weeks.
"Everyone dreams of having a private villa of their own in the Caribbean, whether to just get away with family and friends, experience a wellness journey or hold an event of a lifetime such as a wedding," explained Harith Wickrema, award winning event producer (Tourism Hospitality faculty, Temple University), the villa's visionary and president of Harith Productions Ltd. "Our credo is to provide experiences that entertain, excite, educate, provide escapism and aesthetics," said Wickrema. "It is also our mission to offer our influential guests an opportunity to experience the benefits of spending time at a destination designed with the Earth in mind." Wickrema explained that the Villa's goal is not necessarily to be "a 100% ecologically pure resort" but, rather, to show the discerning traveler how luxury and ecologically sensitive products and designs can co-exist in total harmony. "We seek to redefine luxury," he said, "so that it becomes less about self-indulgence and more about self awareness in the world we all share."
Among the Villa's many delights is the private full-service spa. From the moment guests step through the arch clay entrance to the blue mosaic tile spa they are immersed in the delicate scent of lavender and a sense of deep relaxation, tranquility and renewal. Highlights include a Kohler steam shower, far infrared sauna, ultra luxurious Living Earth Crafts spa equipment and soaking tub.
Eco Serendib is also the perfect backdrop for corporate retreats, team building, change management, leadership and executive coaching workshops. Drawing on Harith Productions' 24 years of expertise in this arena, Eco Serendib will be a natural for professional events that allow attendees to sharpen their skills in this inspiring locale. A state-of-the-art "paperless" conference room and business center ensure attendees can get down to business in a private, secure setting far from distractions.
In keeping with the island's dedication to conservation and environmental sensitivity, the Villa has incorporated a variety of eco-friendly, energy-saving products and systems to lessen its carbon footprint without sacrificing the guest experience. These include the installation of 69 "Buy America" compliant Suniva solar panels that will significantly reduce carbon emissions; Sub-Zero/Wolf's kitchen appliances that are made from as much as 75% recycled materials and use less energy than a 100-watt bulb; water-conservation products from Kohler; furniture from Gloster which is produced using sustainable plantation management systems; Susan Jablon Mosaics, made from 100% recycled glass; sustainable design textile from Andrew Morgan collection; a grey water system for irrigation; three separate 20,000 gallon cisterns to collect rain water; and an organic vegetable garden for garden-to-plate experiences.
