We had a great stay with our 2 small children, the eye for detail is amazing at reef and really completes the whole experience. The only problem is that it is a one of a kind in the area, planning to visit other restaurants or resorts is not necessary.

This is the most romantic, charming hotel I have EVER stayed in! We started our honeymoon with 5 nights here and the hotel itself could not have been more perfect. The room was beautiful, lots of unique furniture including an amazing four poster bed. We had an enormous bathroom with an incredible bath - very romantic! It was spotlessly clean... More

Perfection and on our last day of our stay at Reef Villa & Spa and I can only reiterate what all the other guests reviewing Reef Villa & Spa. There is attention to detail everywhere you look. I am not totally chilled out and relaxed. The service is impeccable, the staff so helpful, charming and unobtrusive, the suite so spacious,... More

My husband, myself and our 16 year old daughter spent three nights at the Reef and I can not recommend it high enough. It was everything we had hoped for and much more. Thankfully, we had not planned on simply using the Reef as a place to sleep - it's a destination that should be savoured. The location on the... More

The staff and grounds of Reef Villa and Spa combine to provide the perfect introduction to the Sri Lankan culture and service at its best. Each member of the team faultlessly attended to every request and did so with such a genuine want to please the guests. The food, service and ambience of the dining areas are second to no... More

The Reef Villa and Spa is as amazing as all the reviews attest. The rooms, ambience, views, service, and the attention to detail are all outstanding. Our room on the ground floor had an outdoor and indoor shower, and was equisetly furnished. For our special occasion, we moved to a room on the second floor to watch a captivating sunset... More
