We travelled around Sri Lanka for three weeks, staying in a mixture of luxury and cheaper places. We were lucky enough to stay in Villa Don Hendrick for 6 nights at the end of our trip - we had originally only booked for 4 nights but once you arrive it is impossible to leave. If our itinerary had been different and we had booked to stay here on the first night I honestly think we would have spent 3 weeks with Raf and Harold at Villa Don Hendrick.
Raf and Harold's home is simply paradise. You will not find a more relaxing, stunning, welcoming and stylish place to stay in Sri Lanka. Villa Don Hendrick is as beautifully designed as anywhere we have visted in London, this is all thanks to Raf and Harolds incredible taste! Whether you're sat by their pool, on your private terrace or having dinner in their main house I can guarantee you will feel relaxed in a way that we are yet to acheive elsewhere! You must accept the offer to have 'dinner at home' - Harold is an amazing chef! There is no getting away from the fact that Villa Don Hendrick has all of the immenities you could possibly need; comfortable relaxing rooms, beautiful gardens, great food, stunning beaches only a short tuk tuk away, however the thing that really makes this place is the hosts. Raf and Harold are two of the most wonderful, welcoming people we have had the pleasure to meet.
I am almost reluctant to post such a glowing review - we want to keep this paradise all to ourselves! One things for sure, we will be back!
