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

The decor through out the... More

My wife and I stayed at the Reef villa during our honeymoon in Sri Lanka. Upon arrival we were greeted by Bernadette, who made us feel welcome and walked us through the property. The next morning we met Brendan (as well as Will and Grace) who was just as charming and friendly as Bernadette. The grounds offer wonderful, beach front... More

Just 30 minutes from Colombo, this boutique villa hotel provided us with a luxurious time to rest and refresh. Very friendly staff, beautiful pool overlooking the ocean. The food was delicious and the rooms were exquistately decorated and huge! Massage was fabulous too! Can recommend this place as truly 5 star and quite unique.

We went to escape for some nights from the daily stress. We had very high expectations and I can truly say that we were completely satisfied. From the airport pickup to the welcome throughout the entire stay we felt extremely well and comfortable. Everything was simply perfect !!!

Luxurious accommodation matched by superb food and service. The staff were attentive but not in a cloying way, and consistently helpful. The Reef Villa is on the beach and close to the village but there is little incentive to wander away when ones accommodation and surroundings are so idyllic.
