It is impossible to fault this hotel - we absolutely adored our stay here. All of the superlative reviews on here? We were interested but hesitant....well, the hotel is even better. Stunning design, every little detail has been thought through (like hidden plugs for any international phone/iPad charger, facility to have your onward boarding passes printed and delivered to you,...

We have just returned after a fantastic winter break in Sri Lanka from 14th to 22nd February 2015. After a tour to Yala National Park and Galle Fort it was great to relax for a few days at Reef Villa. It is a superb hotel, we couldn't fault it. The owner, Brendan, made us so welcome. They have created a... More

We had a wonderful time during our recent stay at Reef Villa & Spa. We came with our 4 year old and were impressed by the attention to detail of the design of the space, the service of the team running the place, the cleanliness (the whole country actually, but the hotel was VERY clean). Brendan and his staff has... More

We spent a week at Villa Reef and we are still living on the memories. We have travelled the world over and this delightful boutique hotel is very special. We had a large beautifully appointed suite in the garden close to the restaurant and pool which was ideal for me as I have slightly limited mobility. Loved the Indian swing... More

We spent 4 nights here after we climbed Kilimanjaro and before heading to India for a 6 week trip. It was the closest thing to heaven...the villas are beautiful everything so cleverly thought out down to the tiniest detail. From the contemporary double granite bath to the service buttons on the lounge umbrellas. Nothing was too much trouble though though... More

Sri Lanka wasn't first on our list for a tourist/winter/beach/sun get away but we were in Mumbai for a few weeks on family business and it was only a two hour flight so why not. We did research online for a boutique property (tired of hotels no matter how elegant), on the beach not to far from the airport (some... More

Rarely do you find a hotel which manages to combine complete professionalism with the sense of staying in a private house with friends. We had ten wonderful days here, eating amazing food and being completely spoiled by the staff, every single one of whom really cares about the guests. The hotel - I hesitate to call it that as it's... More

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
