We had such a great time with everyone there, because they know how to make you feel part of the family. After a week, I could have welcomed the new clients myself because I was feeling home. Thank you so much guys for the amazing time we had. Kiss Merrissa for me.

We spend 1 week there. We initially wanted to stay only 3 days and move around the coast, but well, people were so nice and food so good that we decided to extend our stay! It's not a party place, just a really good relaxing and friendly home!

This was my second time in Sri Lanka. Last year I spend a week with my friend and we back for our last week there as well. We shared room with some people from France, cheap price per bed which is great idea for backpackers. This time I was traveling with my mum. I felt that I'm coming to my... More

My boyfriend and I initially booked to stay for 3 nights at the Surfing Villa and ended up staying for 10! The couple who run the place Barbara and Artur are a lovely super chilled couple who can't do enough for you and really make you feel at home. We needed to see a doctor while we were there and...

Just a stone throw away from the beach, on the other side of the road lays Surfing Villa. A well kept guesthouse run by a Polish couple. Rooms are clean and breezy, have hot showers and a good bed. Food is delicious, these two know how to prepare a meal. Fresh fish, seafood, chicken, western or Sri Lankan curry, everything... More

Great location, away from the touristy bits of the southern coastline, while only a short tuk tuk away from Galle, and the rest of the bustling coastal towns. The hospitality and food at the surf Villa will exceed your expectations, die to the friendliness of the owners, and the local staff they employ. The food is cheap, as well as... More

I stayed for 2 weeks over Christmas with my girlfriend!! What an amazing place Surfing villa is to stay! There is nothing bad I could say about the place.

We visited this establishment in Kabalana, as guests of their well advertised and, supposedly, popular, pizza evenings (Fridays). We were advised to book early as they could be very busy. We booked a day in advance and were advised that we couldn't arrive at 7pm, as we wanted, but they could serve us 10 minutes earlier. We were glad we... More

We stayed at Surfing Villa for a week in January 2015. Barbara and Artur were extremely welcoming and always helpful. There is something new to try for dinner each night and the food is amazing and reasonably priced. The rooms were clean, basic but very comfortable and the grounds of the Surfing Villa are pleasant and inviting with an outdoor... More
