Little Siolim is their annexe house and has three more rooms in a private setting. It is a 10 minute walk from Siolim House. Little Siolim has been designed from two 100 year old Portuguese houses that have been combined to form one house. Little Siolim is inspired by Siolim House and created by the same family (Little Siolim is owned by the younger brother). It gives guests the experience of living in an ancient house with the comforts of a modern home. The architecture and design is an amalgamation of Portuguese, Sri Lankan and South East Asian designs created by the owner himself.
The swimming pool set in the courtyard of the house offers a private experience of swimming while gazing at the spectacular view of the stars. The entire house centers around the pool as the living room and the 3 bedrooms are situated around it. The pool continues into the living room inviting you to take a dip at any time. The living room also has an open kitchen which is fully equipped with all modern amenities for cooking up that delicious meal. You can choose to cook yourself or opt for a cook which is available on request. On the other side is a verandah which overlooks the side garden. The entire property is surrounded by gardens on 3 sides along with a patio in the front of the house; another place to enjoy that cup of local tea.
