I and my wife spent last two nights at villa shade in Negombo, which is really amazing. Maybe villa shade is not a big luxury hotel, but it makes me to reconsider what are the difference between big hotel and simple but boutique guest house? Why a guest house could offer superior service than hotels? Where the amazing service from?... More

Fantastic place with very nice people. Beautyful garden and only five minutes in a tuk-tuk til many restuarents and shops. Unfortunately we missed our plane to Denmark, and the owner was a great help. He even offered to lend us the money to buy some knew tickets. What a trust he gave us. I can warmly recommend this guesthouse. These... More

During our stay, they are very kind and also give us some introduction on some vegatables/fruit they plant. They are willing to tell you what you need. It's very good to choose this one as your last stay or first stay in Sri Lanka as it's close to Colombo airport. It's very clean and shower place is very unique.

Villa Shade has big and clean rooms, a perfectly manicured garden, a well designed kichen where you can cook by yourself, the most important is that the owner is nice and helpful, he gives very good suggustion on evrything you need, and he give them sincerely.

スリランカ滞在の最後の2泊に利用させてもらいました。実は両日ともコロンボにて遊びすぎて(二ゴンボビーチはシーズンオフ?のため泳ぐことができなかったので)宿に着いたのは深夜になってしまいました。しかしいつもお父さんが温かく迎えてくださり、特にチェックインの日にはフレッシュなキングココナッツ・ジュースをいただいてとっても嬉しい気持ちになりました。お部屋は清潔に保たれていて、「いつでも使っていいよ」と水やポット、コーヒーに紅茶にミルクまで用意されていました。wi-fiもパスワードが書いて置いてあったので簡単につながりました。 朝食も2日間違うメニューでしたがいかにもスリランカらしい、とても美味しいものでした。特に2日目はお家のリビングのような場所で、お二人とお話ししながらの朝食時間はとっても楽しかったです。朝食は別料金となりますがリーズナブルなので是非食べてみてほしいと思います。 その後、私はまたコロンボに戻るということでtuktukを手配してもらい、ドライバーにも私が高速バスを使う旨まで伝えてくれました。そして最後には夫婦そろって玄関の外まで見送ってくださりとても温かい気持ちでさよならと感謝を伝えました。 二ゴンボの中心からは少し離れていますが、こちらでゆっくりするぶんには問題ないと思います。私もコロンボまで出て行くということがなければもっとここでゆっくりと過ごしたかったなあと思います^^。 I stayed here 2 night.The host husband are very helpful and kind for me. There was clean and cute fabric room,you can connect to free wi-fi easily.Also has free drinks,coffee and tea and milk and water. And you can take breakfast that is Sri-lankan style everyday ware so good!you can eat it in beautiful garden or... More

The place was a bit outside of the center, but is was no problem to take a cheep tuc-tuc to the guesthouse. The straff was so friendly, and we got fresh juice when when we arrived. We slept in one of the bungalowes, and we got overwhelmed by the bathroom. It is the coolest bathrooms we've seen! partially outdoors. It... More

After arrival at the airport this villa is a perfect place to relax after the flight, to prepare the travel in SriLanka and to get imortant and helpful advices from Shiraj and his wife Deepika. You can sit under big trees and between exotic plants and get good SriLanka breakfast.
