We loved it. It's a few minutes walk from a nice beach. Rooms are really nice, swimming pool is clean. We went there as a family and had a 'house' just for oursleves. Team was very caring with young kids, they even have toys to play with They could only offer pizza for dinner but they were really good Overall,... More

We only stayed here one night after we landed, it's just 15 mins in a tuk tuk from the airport (1,000 rupees) located in a nice quiet road off the main drag. Our room was lovely, large king size wooden four poster bed although I had to spend some time getting rid of the mozzies inside despite the mozzie net... More

This is a gorgeous hotel. It's a bit different, relaxed and cool. The room was lovely too Slightly disappointed by our lunch, it was a very thin, basic sandwich, we expected more given the hotel and the price. That said, this is a lovely hotel which I whole heartedly recommend

Firstly if you do not like cats and dogs do not stay here. Nice room with comfortable king size bed. No TV or kettle. I got morning coffee from the dining area and took back to my room. Only toiletries was a bottle of shower gel. Nice pool but you to pay to use it. Quiet location, only 5 minutes... More

This was our second visit to Villa Araliya but this time we were a group of nine on a two week holiday travelling around Sri Lanka. It is in a perfect location for the airport and as were setting off for Jaffna the next day it was fantastic. We had a family apartment for four which was wonderful plus two... More

We spent our first night here straight after landing at Colombo airport. Management is very friendly and helpful, they organized us a ride to Kandy and gave us hints for the beaches. The room was very clean and included a comfy king size bed. Apart from that there were two, three bars in walking distance! Perfect spot to start a... More

We stayed at Villa Araliya for one night having landed at Colombo airport around lunchtime, and before embarking on our travels around Sri Lanka the next day, therefore needing somewhere just to rest our heads for the night. The room was clean, fairly basic (in terms of appliances and facilities - but did have A/C and a mosquito net), and... More

The staff was super friendly, they think ahead. Before you ask for something, they already give you what you need, for example towels for the swimmingpool. They are always cleaning op working in the garden. They had very nice, clean AC rooms, relaxing pool area and simple, but good food. When you're here, you will be treated like a princess!... More

If you wan't to waste money u can go there, it's perfect. U can find all around, a better hotel for a very good price. The pick up from the airport is also very expensive : 30dollars for 10minutes! Take a taxi by yourself or another hotel. The boss is a very bad man, he just wants to do buisiness... More
