July 12, 2018 (LBO) – Sri Lanka Sotheby’s International Realty today announced an agreement to work with Catalina Koggala, Sri Lanka’s premiere villa-based residential country club, to market Catalina’s luxury villas globally.  

Charles Phillpot, Sales and Marketing director of Sri Lanka Sotheby’s International Realty, said “There is currently a lot of interest from many countries for luxury homes in the South of Sri Lanka.  The central location of Sri Lanka and the increasing number of air routes connecting Colombo make the 1,350 miles of beaches and kind climate of Sri Lanka conveniently accessible to much of the world.  The exclusive gated community of Catalina is the ideal concept for a holiday home as it offers a high level of both security and management.  The Southern Expressway gives a fast road link from Colombo giving easy access to these luxury villas and their country club lifestyle.”

“We are excited to leverage the powerful Sotheby’s International Realty® global marketing network and to be able to offer Catalina Koggala’s luxury villas to their exclusive clientele” said Jeevan William, Managing Director of Granite Capital, developers of Catalina, a new luxury residential gated community development near Galle in southern Sri Lanka, that commenced construction earlier this year. Targeted for completion in late 2019, Catalina will offer freehold purchase of twenty one elegant villas and a five-star luxury living experience in a members-only country club setting that is unique in Sri Lanka.
