Incomparable setting, superb staff, and outstanding cuisine. I only wish there're better signs to direct visitor to this facility as it's located in a pretty remote area. However, I was there during low season so the whole resort was "almost" at my own disposal. Such a luxury!

Dear Fenshya Thank you for your lovely review and your kind comments in our guest book. As you know we are on the beach in Wadduwa, a town only 30 minutes south of Colombo on the main Galle Road along the coast and it is two minutes from the town to us. I think your driver took you the scenic... More

My husband and I were looking for some special place to stay during our short trip to Sri Lanka. Since we both are big fans of colonial design hotels, we found this little gem just some 40 km outside busy and dusty Colombo. Reef Villa & Spa simply exceeded our expectations ! Thumbs up to the owners who put their... More

We stayed at Reef for our final two nights in Sri Lanka and it was paradise. Brendan made us feel so welcome we felt at ease straight away. The overall design and decor is stunning. When we were shown to our suite we were blown away -never before had a mini-courtyard with the private jacuzzi and outdoor shower (all ours!).... More

After our wedding in neighboring hotel , we stayed for 2 nights in Reef Villa during on our honeymoon before we head to Maldives. Reef Villa is such a beautiful place to stay. Great food that I would rate with 5 Michelin stars, friendly staff, beyond amazing interiors and serene. We enjoyed the place as if we own the entire... More

This place is so wonderful, I don't know where to start! Due to a change of plans, we ended up staying here 4 nights instead of the original 3. We were a little bit worried that this would be a little bit to long "to do nothing and relax". Also, when we arrived there, they told us that because it... More

Great hotel, perfect for a honeymoon stay. We stayed in 5 hotels in Sri Lanka and Reef was by far the best experience: team, service, location, cleanliness and tasty Sri Lankan food. The hotel is fully designed to make you feel in the colonial period. Only one advice: don't be tempted to buy gems in any of the local shops... More

The first night of our first trip to Sri Lanka. We stayed only one night and wished we had booked a longer visit with Brendan and team. As we left we joked it would be downhill from ReefVilla and it turned out to be true! We took over three double rooms, two interconnecting for our four (adult) children. The rooms... More

We went to Reef for the day. I have been there before, but it was the first time at Reed for my friends, as soon as they walked in, I heard the "Oh Wow"s & the "Amazing"s ... I have been to many hotels in Sri Lanka, and overseas, but haven't seen anything like Reef Villa & Spa. Tastefully decorated... More

A four poster bed complete with carvings, a canopy and a silk drapes, a romantic dinner under the stars and then breakfast on our private veranda was a fabulous start to our honeymoon and married life. Reef Villa is truly a hidden gem that we have aleady told our friends about. Everywhere you turn you will find someting of interest... More

We stayed at Reef for 2 weeks in March this year so this review is long overdue but the delay is in no way a reflection of our opinion of Reef Villa, in fact quite the contrary as given the time which has passed since our trip it is very unusual for us to still wish to post a review.... More
