My familly and I stayed 2 nights in this beautiful villa. This is the perfect place to relax after or before a long flight. Shiraj and his spouse are very nice and helpful. Choose the luxury chalet, you won't regret it !

Rooms were nicely decorated and very clean. The children had a room where the shower was partially "outside" with a tree growing in it - was incredible.... More

We enjoyed our stay at Villa Shade so much. Incredibly helpful hosts, clean spacious room (we stayed in the house), very quiet at night meaning a restful sleep with a filling, tasty traditional breakfast to start the day. Helpful information on what things are worth to ensure we were not ripped off, and introduced to a tuk tuk driver who... More

My wife, my daughter and I stayed here for a night before flying out of the airport. We were in the new lodge, which has a most remarkable bathroom. Just a very pleasant place to spend a night, with clean facilities and good services.

It was great to wind up our SriLanka Trip with our stay in Villa Shade. An exceptionally green place, well maintained, designed aesthetically topped up by very hospitable hosts. Great for families as well as loners looking for a peaceful place without disturbance to rest. There is a basketball court and a tree house thrown in rooms are good and... More

We booked a one-night stay in Negombo, since we had to leave to airport on the next morning. It's very nice place to stay in Villa shade, although it's a little far from city center and the beach. But i recommend you choosing here,because the beach is not very clean and the city is loud and busy. I feel very... More
