We visited as two couples and stayed four nights. We have rarely relaxed so quickly into being somewhere. This small resort (seven rooms) feels like it has been thoughtfully crafted to provide an escape from the world outside. A great deal of care seems to have gone into the standard of service and the decoration and furnishing. This was a... More

We stayed here just one night three months ago, but we were deeply impressed by this resort. A warm welcome is waiting for us when we arrived. Our room was pretty much a palace, it was simply amazing. The decor is really interesting, a hark back to British colonial interiors. The room had easy access to the beach and pool.... More

Gorgeous boutique hotel. Set in private coconut palms right on the beach. Rooms are superb, spacious, all decorated with fascinating artifacts. With only 7 suites, this is a very private and peaceful luxury. Food (espcially the Sri Lankan curries) is top class. Pool is lovely. Beach is narrow, but great for a swim in the waves. Water is clean and... More

We cannot rate the Reef Villa highly enough. The rooms were fabulous, the food excellent and hotel itself was beautiful. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and nothing seemed to be too much trouble. It was our first Christmas away from home and the Reef put so much effort into the event, with such attention to detail, that... More

We have stayed at some very nice hotels in Sri Lanka, but this place really stands out as being in a class of it's own. Everything about this place is refined. The rooms and bathrooms are hugh and tastefully and comfortably furnished. The service is outstanding, the food is top notch and the locaction is stunning. Copy this model if... More

As you arrive at Reef Villa & Spa you realise you are in for a different experience….. And it certainly does not disappoint. The plush gardens, beautiful artefacts and fish swimming tranquilly in the ponds surrounding the hotel quietly beckon you. Onward bound you arrive in the exquisite entrance hall, tastefully decorated with imported furniture and charming collectables. Upon reaching... More

We can not recommend this hotel highly enough. The attention to detail in the whole experience was outstanding.The service was exactly how it should be, attentive without being intrusive; the staff were always on hand to attend to our requirements at the press of a button, but never overbearing. As we were virtually the only people there, as a little... More

Not located in the nicest of areas and you would be forgiven for regretting booking the place based on the surrounding area, but once you manage to find the place (which is difficult at night as not well sign posted) you enter the wooden gates and after a short drive to the main house/hotel, all fears or anxiety are quickly...

Second trip to Sri Lanka and no idea this was a boutique type hotel with personal signatures all over it - well a little more than that, a very well designed home inclusive of about 7 suites for guests passing through or staying there the whole trip. Attention to detail second to none a home away from home. Rooms and... More

We stayed at the Reef villa for 1 night on the 28th of November, and this was obviously too short! The place felt like home, is beautifully decorated and above all, the staff is truly amazing! The Reef Villa is a place you can not afford to miss when visiting Sri Lanka!
