Living in Sri Lanka

The tropical climate, hospitable people and gentle pace of life set the stage for Living in Style at Catalina. A low cost of living compared to other international-standard resort destinations in the Asia-Pacific, Europe and North America, allows for a superior lifestyle in an idyllic tropical environment. Easy access to first class medical facilities ensure peace of mind. Onsite health professionals and easy access to first class medical facilities ensure peace of mind. Being part of a community of like-minded people provides opportunities to actively engage and ‘give back’ to the wider community. It’s like coming home.

Catalina Story

Koggala lake was once the longest non-stop flight in the world "Double Sunrise Flight", a 5625KM journey that took around 30 hours of highly dangerous flying, across the Indian Ocean from Perth in Western Australia. During the Second World War, Catalina flying boats were the only way of travelling between Australia and Britain, via Koggala, after the fall of Singapore to the Japanese army in 1942 cut off all travel links via South East Asia.

It was a RCAF Catalina pilot from Koggala who first spotted a Japanese armada advancing towards Colombo and sounded the alarm, helping save the British Eastern fleet from destruction by the same Imperial Japanese war fleet that destroyed Pearl Harbor. We have commemorated Catalina flying boat legacy in our logo and have named our two types of villas the “Rigel” and “Antares”, after two of the five aircraft that flew over 1.5 million KM on 271 secret missions between Perth and Koggala, without a single loss.

Today, Koggala is a laid-back resort town set between a lush tropical lagoon and one of the finest beaches in all Sri Lanka, where modern amenities and leisure facilities meet a rich cultural and historical tradition.

Here you will find an exclusive residential community of twenty two elegant villas, for those who cherish comfort, refinement, an easier pace of life and an independent lifestyle in a country club setting. Will you be among them, Living in style ?
