We made a very last minute reservation at the Villa after our original hotel did a double booking on one of their rooms. We originally wanted to stay at the seaside, but this was even better. This place is so relaxing and calming - it's worth staying a couple of nights, if you're heading south, and getting some rest. It's... More

What a beautifully located property! The mornings were most relaxing having the stunning view of the lake & enjoying my cup of coffee. The rabbits in the garden added a fairy like charm to the place too. Staff is well trained & obliging. However we were a bit disappointed with the breakfast - very small portions and had no options... More

A very small and idyllic place! View to the lake is awesome! The staff has always been friendly and helpful. I like the cool pool but cut myself in my fingers cause the tiles on the floor are very sharp (happened also to my friend). They also offer massages (a guy from Colombo will come for that), didn't tried it... More

Stayed there 2 nights and we had the best experience! The view, the staff, the food-everything was great . The ambiance is incredibly peaceful and relaxing... Wish we could stay longer! Galle and all of the must see tourist attractions are super close. You can also walk to the beach from there

This is definetely the place to come of you want some peaceful R&R. The villa is a beautiful and open old building with around 5 rooms, fish ponds, and bunnies running around the garden. Security is higher than I've seen at other places, and they have a guard at the gate who always closes and opens the gate to control... More

We felt as though we were having a total Imladris experience here. There is something very special about this place. It is a place of deep restful tranquillity and timelessness. A place where one can very easily stay for a long time. The ambience was so peaceful and meditative, that we just wanted to stay for days. Villa Modarawattha makes... More

Stayed in family group renting four rooms and had villa much to ourselves. Manager Prasanna and all his staff were excellent. Lovely grounds on lake's edge and well kept, with a small pool. Food was very good and sensibly priced. Very helpful for all extra requests we made eg with organising a two day trip into highlands

We booked 2 superior rooms at this villa through Agoda – when we arrived after a 9 hour drive we were told by the manager Prasanna that he hadn’t received any confirmation of our booking from Agoda and that they were fully booked – then miraculously after 15 minutes and a phone call he said there had been a cancellation...

What a place! Its situation is idyllic at the end of a dirt track next to a beautiful lagoon with rabbits in the garden. We stayed 2 nights here and found this villa a wonderful place to relax. It's very small with only 5 rooms so if you're after total peace and tranquility then this is for you. We didn't... More

It's a perfect place for individuals away from crowded hotels and beaches. The Villa is wonderful, has a real charm but fortunately only 5 rooms. The staff is extreme helpful and kind, they served us with a lots of love and attention. The nearest beach (South Beach) is about 400 m and there were usually nobody just us. You can't... More
