We reached reef after our wedding, feeling the toll of the hectic week passed. Stepping in through the gates into a little oasis lined with foliage and pleasant ambiguity paired with the warm welcome, we were already relaxing! We were able to unwind in the privacy of our spacious yet cozy room which had a wonderful antique style. The spacious... More

We spent a wonderfully relaxing week at Reef Villas. As soon as the hotel gates opened we were transported into a lush paradise garden full of tropical plants and fragrant flowers leading to the Main House. There are seven suites each decorated in Colonial style complete with canopied beds and fantastic rope ceiling fans made of pleated silk. The suites... More

We chose Reef Villas as a starting point (2 nights) and end point (1 night) for our trip in Sri Lanka as it was within a manageable drive to the airport (about one and a half hours) and a convenient stop off for exploring further south and east. It proved a very good choice. We booked through i-escapes but dealt... More

We stayed at some marvelous hotels during our tour of Sri Lanka, but the best was saved until last. The Reef is simply superb, in every way and we have run out of superlatives to describe the location, grounds, main building & bedrooms which were furnished with antique furniture, the spa, the pool, the restaurant & its fresh seafood. Also,... More

We stayed in an Ocean Suite called Kekatiya at the Reef Villa last week and I have to say this place just blew us away with wow after wow. Over the years we've been lucky enough to stay in some very impressive hotels around the world but this place really stands head and shoulders above all we've ever experienced before.... More

We travelled around Sri Lanka for a second time in two years this March and actually checked out of a hotel earlier than planned to return to Reef Villa. We knew we would instantly relax and be taken care of. From the minute the gates of this beautiful hotel opened to the minute we left we again received service like... More

Reef Villa is an unmitigated joy, the rooms, the food, the service, the location, all second to none. I really can't fault it. And Brendan the owner will fall over backwards to help with any concerns, or if you need advice for trips or to sort onward travel. The only thing I am upset about is that he wouldnt let... More

We booked reef villas for 5 nights as a quiet idyllic spot to relax after a tour of Sri Lanka. The quiet and small complex, with beautiful colonial decor and stunning grounds, did not disappoint and what makes it really stand out is the individual attention to detail for every guest, under the skilful hand of the manager Malith. It... More

My wife and I were at the Reef in the spring of 2011 for three nights and for two of those, we had the entire place to ourselves. It was heavenly. We literally had the run of the place during all but our first night. So lounging by the pool, strolling down the beach, having late night dinners and sleeping... More
