We were on Sri-Lanka in 15-30th of March 2015. We have a lot of traveling adventures through the cities — Kandy, Sygiriya, Nuwara Eliya, e.t.c. We’ve changed several hotels (nine (!!!)). But this villa — second to none. It is two-layered wide villa with high quality wooden furniture and fresh overhaul. They have a lot of big rooms with fabulous... More

Thalik and his family are fantastic hosts, they couldn't do enough for us. They understand the real meaning of service! Ask them for something and they will go out of their way to achieve it. In passing, I commented I hadn't got presents for my family, and they showed up with some Sri Lanka mugs without asking. Now that's service!... More

We think this place is superb! This hotel is a short walk from the main street with restaurants, gem shops and bars yet is peaceful and relaxing. The breakfasts rival any at a 4 star hotel with lovely fresh fruits, hot meal and an endless supply of coffee/tea. It is run with German efficiency! We wanted to go to Nuwara... More

We had 1 night in this cosy Villa on our way from Dubai to Singapore. It is situated not far from the airport - you can easily get it by taxi. The rooms are super! We had 2-room room (3 people) - both rooms were quite large and tidy. The owner is very friendly lady. She will probably ask you... More

I found Villa Extra through Trip Advisor and was initially a little trepidatious because it seemed so inexpensive - and there had been one negative review. But from the minute we arrived my fears totally dissipated. Our hostess, Thivi Extra, and her beautiful daughter Nelo gave us a wonderful introduction to Sri Lanka. Close to the airport, Villa Extra in... More

Clean, big rooms, nicely furnished; we phoned several times before arriving but did not reach them, noone seemed to be there when we came there, at last they opened. Part of the staff is very friendly but not everyone. We had to leave at 7 am to get our flight so they gave as a *very* small breakfast "by way... More

We stayed here the first night of our three week Sri Lanka holiday. The owner and her daughter are very nice and extremely helpful! The location is great, the room very clean, but in our opinion the beds are a bit too hard (thin mattresses) and the shower is not powerful enough for this price range.
