After a a week trip around Sri Lanka we got to Unavatuna. At first hotel did not appear great place mainly because of its location on a busy road. But once we got to take a look around we indeed like it very much. Very well decorated by the owners - has this colonial touch and art look on the... More

The hotel can be the pride of the best hotel lines in Europe or Thailand, or ... wherever your fantasy may take you. Everything is smart, and accurate, and elaborated in every detail. The food absolutely great, rooms clean and cozy even to, say, a "Laura Ashley effect", all facilities work. The best of local (Galle vicinity) beaches, the excellent... More

The staff at Ridee Villa are second to none. We received a warm welcome personally by the Hotel Owner. A nice touch was the sign at the entrance welcoming us by name. The room was lovely. Fully air conditioned, safe, nice bathroom, wifi. Everything you would need. The breakfast spread is something to die for. Particularly the fruits selection. My... More

We spent one week in this marvellous house, which is ideally situated just a few steps from Unawatuna's beach and restaurants. The warm welcome was the best we ever had and the beauty of this hotel is unforgettable: well-decorated, clean, comfortable with large rooms. Moreover, the breakfast was rich and delicious. We have never been so well welcomed. Do not... More

We stayed here one night as we wanted to stop by Galle. As other have mentioned: the staff is very attentive, breakfast is really nice, rooms are well furnished and comfortable, although ours was on the small size (we took a standard), as the bed was taking all the space. The one negative is that it's located on a busy... More

During our 4 day stay at ridee villa the owners had made us feel very welcome and told us to treat this as our own home. The owner was great at organising day trips/ tuc tuc's for us and even a shuttle service to the airport. His staff were very kind and the rooms were very clean and had a... More

This is probably one of the nicest places to stay in Unawatuna and around. The staff are lovely and very accommodating and they really couldn't do enough for us. They helped us get reasonably priced tuk tuks, ensured the lovely towels, water and peanuts were provided for the beach and saw to it that we received fresh juice when we... More

We have just returned from a 5 day stay at ridee villa. We were made to feel welcome immediately and told to treat the place as our home.

Even before we arrived Sumith provided excellent customer service via email by arranging an airport transfer and answering some of my more pedantic questions (what kind of adaptor plug do I need?). On arrival our bags were whisked up to our room whilst we had a refreshing fresh pineapple juice and received a tour of the guesthouse including: breakfast buffet,... More
