Villa Araliya was our perfect finish of a great Sri Lankan holiday. We stayed in a huge, well designed family apartment. The friendly and helpfull staff made our stay very peasant. The food in the restaurant was excellent. Plenty of tuktuks around to bring you everywhere you want. We visited the colorfull and bustling Negombo sunday market, a real treat.... More

We couldn't really fault this hotel. The room was nice and in good condition. We had a mosquito bet above the bed but this was expected. The pool was good and the staff friendly. The food at breakfast was good. We were only there for one night at the start of our Sri Lanka tour but found it a nice... More

Villa Araliya was the perfect start and finish to our holiday. It was a very relaxing place and a great introduction to Sri Lanka. The rooms are spotlessly clean and really comfortable, the pool a nice place to relax with a cold beer. The small restaurant is beside the pool and the rice and curry was lovely, as was breakfast....

This hotel was tha last place where we stayed before going back home. It is close to the airport (30minutes by car). We stayed one night and the rooms were confortable and clean. The swimming pool was really appreciable at the end of the day. The staff is kind and the breakfast is really good.

Got a nice room with a big four-poster bed with mosquito net. Also airco and a ceiling fan. Bathroom was basic, but clean. Friendly service. Basic food... More

Very nice big rooms, clean with a nice bad room and sufficient hot water, some have a kitchen available. Nice and clean swimming pool. Restaurant available on site but to be honest this is not...

We got picked up by Araliya's driver at about midnight and went back straight from the airport. The villa we had was huge and really well presented with aircon, cable and all the stuff you expect. The villas are newish but in the style of traditional houses but very tastefully decorated and presented. The finish of the rooms was done... More

Think this place is super cool. Understated and attractive. Just watch out at night as the lane outside is very dark and someone tried to mug us. Please be careful. Good place to sleep and eat. Owner driven.
