The Team

Dale Rennie – Developer

The Plantation was realized by Total Ceylon Investment Pvt. Ltd. that is led by Australian born Dale Rennie, who was part of the team responsible for the award-winning ultra-luxury cliff front property Villa Anugrah in Bali, Indonesia. The same project was cited in 2015 by the Indonesian government as the “Best Villa and Exceptional Hospitality of the Year” that only padded Rennie’s accomplishments in the property development industry.

Rennie is no stranger to Sri Lanka as he developed the absolute beach-front villa Puzzle Beach House that is scheduled to launch in Q4 2017 on the prestigious “golden mile” of Thalpe. In addition, his firm acquired and re-developed The Heritage and Café Bistro, which is within the confines of the UNESCO-listed Galle Fort.

And in the immediate pipeline for Total Ceylon is the hip new lodge style concept hotel in the Philippines that focuses on beach front property. The project will be known as the Siargao Beach Club, construction of which is already underway and scheduled for completion in the second half of 2018.
