Most accomodation in Sri Lanka is old and run down, and very over priced for what it is. My Village is the opposite. Located just off the main road and close to Yala nation park, this hotel is so well maintained and I loved my stay here. The staff was friendly, our room was immaculate and looked very new yet...

We spent one night at this small cozy place, within close proximity to the Tissamaharama tank. The interior looks spectacular and surprisingly it was done by the owner himself with an attractive mix of colours. The garden is neat and well maintained with few hammocks hanging around making it ideal to read a book or may be log on to... More

We were in for a treat the moment we arrived. Incredible place, awesome, SPOTLESS bedrooms with own outdoor seating. Welcome fresh smoothie on arrival, looked after so well throughout. Wonderful food. Great advice without any pushing. Wonderful gardens to chill around. Free bikes and lovely walk down the road in a remote area. Can't recommend this place more highly!

We loved everything about our stay here except that we couldn't stay longer! From the moment we arrived to when we left, Justin was on hand to help us have a most pleasant time. Sitting in the leafy courtyard was soothing after the searing hot sun and our room cool, spacious and comfortable. It is hard to say what was... More

Having spent 2 weeks in Sri Lanka and staying in a variety of accommodation this place really won us over. The ever-smiling owner Sujith was friendly and professional and never pushed us into using the tours or drivers of the hotel like many other places do. We did book a safari with the hotel which was fantastic. Comfy jeep (just... More

My village is stunning, from the outside gates, to the wonderful under cover area with many sitting places, to the well appointed, spotless rooms. But the best part is Justin. He is a delightful and helpful man. From bringing drinks, arranging tuk tuks, knowing the bus timetable, and arranging a fantastic tour to Yalla. We ate on two evenings at... More

We stayed at My Village Hotel for one night after our Yala National Park Safari. It's a quaint boutique hotel with only 3 rooms and the African type decor went hand in hand with the Safari theme. Our room was big enough for the four of us - two adults and 2 kids (9 & 12 yo). The beds were... More

I stayed here for three nights in March this year (2015). Sujith (the owner) couldn't have looked after me better - fantastic service and delicious Sri Lankan curry in the evening. Sujith also arranged a brilliant bird-watching tour by tuk tuk - much better than joining all the other tourists in Yala and Bundala. The guest house is very peaceful,... More

Our 2 night stay with a party of 8 was far beyond our expectations. The rooms and premises were very clean and well maintained, staff attentive and Sujith the owner cooked us excellent meals. He was also flexible: cooking what we bought in the market and preparing dishes to our liking. He arranged a good driver and jeep to take... More

We loved My Village. Fabulous huge rooms, spotlessly clean. All the staff were excellent and the food was really good. They don't have driver accommodation so our driver stayed just down the road but ate all meals with us. Really lovely outdoor area. When we came to settle the bill, the owner gave us a discount (unasked for) and also... More
