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

Barbara, Arthur and Edith are all lovely and nothing is ever too much trouble for them. Everyday we had a freshly cooked breakfast along with freshly picked fruit salad! Perfect for... More

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

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

We spent seven nights there, everything is good. Clean room, nice pool and great food. The owner family is friendly; let us feel very comfortable and safe to stay there like home. Just few minutes walking distance to beach. The dinner is very yummy, they change menu every day, we love pizza and fish a lot. Barbara, Arthur and Edith,... More

Barbara, Arthur and Edith welcome you immediately. The gardens are absolutely beautiful with a huge, clean pool and plenty of sun lounges. The restaurant is clean and cool. Don't be fooled by photos that make it look dark. It has a beautiful roofline that falls very low to keep the heat out. The decor creates character and it is nice... More

I can not think of anything wrong with this place - and its in a location so that you are able to leave your room and be surfing the rock in a few minutes. A really lovely place... More
