After long fly, when we just came to the hotel we were met by owner, with fresh cocktails. Wife of the owner is brilliant chef. During the stay in hotel we had had one of the best suppers in Sri Lanka. Also we spent some time with pleasure at beautiful terrace with great ocean view and BBQ area.

We certainly agree with all the reviews, not much is left to say. If you got tired of eating out there was even a lovely well stocked kitchen for some home cooking (but you are on vacation - right?) . So 5 stars to the staff,the rooms,the food and the location made it possible to walk to many nice restaurants.... More

The owner is very attentive to all guests needs. Including personalized trips and drop and pick up to near beaches such as Jungle beach ( a snorkeling place). Very appreciated the tour to Galle (free) in an antique car. Room a bit small, but still very nice

What a beautiful hotel. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left (and I have to say I really didn't want to) we were treated incredibly. The owners Sumith and Shammi made us feel very welcome and the staff are superb. The rooms are lovely, the bed so comfortable and breakfast was a joy with everything you could... More

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
