The Services included Villas to Buy, Rentals, and Management.

We pride ourselves since 2008 as locals on the ground able to offer you handpicked, quality villa accommodation, at an affordable price. Our dedicated and specialist team is here to offer you the service you expect from a company that is arranging your all-important luxury villa holidays in Sri Lanka.

In 2008, we started our villa rentals service and in the process, we set up Villa in Sri Lanka as our official website for those interested in renting holiday villas and private holiday homes in Sri Lanka, for the short or long term.

We still hold dear the value of a bespoke service with one-to-one contact which we had then, and which enabled the organisation to grow. Since 1999, Vinod (the Founder) has, with the support of many returning customers and satisfied villa owners, turned the hobby of travel into a more diversified business. First with Paragon Holidays and its Luxury Sri Lankan Holiday Experiences, then to Luxury Villa Rentals in Sri Lanka.

The small idea grew quickly, as Villa in Sri Lanka became exceptionally busy over the peak seasons and previous customers came back and began to ask for new destinations, saying they valued our personalised service. So our rental portfolio needed to grow in terms of the number and locations of the high-quality villas we were able to offer our guests.

Many of our guests come back to us, year after year for all their luxury villa holidays. It is our service, the attention to detail, and our wide-ranging portfolio of villas and castles and holiday experiences that set us apart from the rest.

From a single villa, Paragon Luxury Villas has gone from strength to strength, now offering guests over 400 villas and Ski Chalets in more than 5 fabulous destinations across Europe and in Sri Lanka.

Today, we have set up our office here in London, United kingdom, making things more convenient for our guests. We are pleased with our reputation and maintain a passion for offering the very best villa holiday experiences.
