“Serenia Residences offer freehold title for Sri Lankan’s as well as foreigners, along with attractive 8-10% USD return p.a. Unlike timeshares Serenia does not have strict occupation time periods or blackout periods and one is at liberty to live here at Serenia as long as you wish, a further advantage of being part of the exclusive Serenia family!”
“Serenia is that rare opportunity: a chance to invest in a distinctive beach location, where pristine beaches, culture, entertainment and relaxation is all on your doorstep,” said Alok.
