The beachfront villa is an oasis. A lovely setting, empty beach, kind and gracious staff, fresh ingredients and flavorful spices prepared and presented on your table - are just the rudimentary pleasures of a stay in the beachfront villa. The location, design and layout of the beachfront villa exceeded our expectations, as did the care and attention provided by the... More

We stayed in Villa Balapitiya Beach for six nights recently, and it was an absolute dream. We travelled around Sri Lanka during the off season so we had the two bedroom villa to ourselves, and it was great to have a little home for the week. There was a fridge and a kitchen at our disposal, so it was good... More

My family and I stayed 2 night in the 2 bedroom apartment. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable, both have ceiling fans and one has air conditioning and the other has an extra stand fan. The bathroom is large and has a hot water heater (which also contains a water pump that greatly improves the water pressure). The included... More

The place really is quite untouched by mass tourism, 100m from a beach (west-facing = sunsets) that was mostly empty. The expansive garden around this beautiful house boasts fresh fruit off the tree as well as some local fauna (e.g. iguanas). The people at the villa are very approachable and very helpful; Nalinda and his father, the owners, even took... More

We stayed a group of 4 people per Villa Balapitiya Beach!!!! Successful location of the villa, a bus stop next to the beach across the road, but its advantage is that it is completely free - no one. The villa we loved, everything you need is available. Employees at the villa are very friendly and always helped us in solving... More

This villa is conveniently located along the main streets of south coast, before Hikkaduwa, and there is absolutely no problem hailing a tuk tuk or taxi from the streets once you step out of the building! We had a late arrival and were comforted to find Nalinda awaiting at the entrance! The rooms are clean and homely. There are two... More

We stayed in the 2 bed apartment with friends for 3 nights recently. From the below reviews, the website and price, we were expecting a luxury villa right on a beatuiful beach. However, the apartment was no where near as nice as the pictures implied. It is in the annex of the owners house with no real privacy as stairs... More

Firstly this couple stayed only one night and not 3 nights. and paid half of the apartment rent USD 35.(inclusive of tax and service charges) I'm not saying we... More

Nalinda - the host at Villa Balapitiya is one of a kind. He picked us up from the airport and from then on took care of our every whim and fancy. We were visiting Sri Lanka over New Year's Eve and he was happy to drive us to places that we needed to get to. The food at the villa... More

A good break from the busy schedule. Our stay was in the 2 bedroom Villa. Nalinda, the host was friendly and polite. The food was good and tasty. The place was clean and tidy. The dampening factor was the bad weather in the night, that made us a bit uncomfortable with no power and the A/C not functioning that made... More
