5 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

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.

We went for dinner one evening and enjoyed both the food and setting so much that we returned 2 days later for a... More

We have travelled the world extensively and this is by far the best place that we have ever stayed! The owners have thought of everything, there is nothing to fault. Every aspect from the sumptuous interiors, to the manicured grounds, to guest comfort and faultless service, to the exquisite food - everything is done to perfection! If you are reading... More

The staff and service, the food and rooms are all excellent. You wouldn't want to go anywhere else to have such a lovely relaxing time. From the moment you are greeted on your arrival until the time of departure it is such a pleasure to be here. Memories of Monica the elephant walking up the beach is something else. The... More
