Set on the Southern coastline of Sri Lanka just a few minutes along the coastal highway from spectacular Mirissa Beach, and within easy reach of Galle or Matara, Villa Atulya offers an idyllic holiday experience. Set in ocean front, this is a home away from home with all required luxury where you can enjoy your holiday without the hustle and bustle of a commercially run hotel.

All bedrooms are air conditioned and offer spectacular views of the Indian Ocean. The antique furniture and paintings carefully chosen by the architect adds a touch of opulence of a bygone era to the Villa and its open verandas facing the ocean.

We weren’t at all sure what to expect from Villa Atulya as some reviews left us in some doubt but we shouldn’t have worried. It’s a laid back place but rest assured if you need anything they will do their best to help you . As other reviews have pointed out guests are left in some doubt over eg room servicing. Unless you hand your key in and ask them to do it , they won’t. But if you ask them ... they will! Simples! The staff are young but we were served great and generous breakfasts and “ Chef” is talented. They also prepared evening meals on request with extras we asked for. They will “ fetch” beer on request and do their upmost to please . It took us a day or so to get into the swing of it but once we knew how things worked we had no problems. Yes ... some sort of information in your room explaining some of the ‘quirks ‘ may have helped but we would happily stay on our next trip to that stretch of coast . Thank you to all of the staff for making our stay an enjoyable one !

Property's Favorite Review
After a less than great start on 1st Jan, this hotel ended up being my favourite of our entire trip. It's very close to Mirissa, just 20min walk and if doing so at sunset you have to stop and watch the sun go down on one of the many bars along the coastal path. The rooms only 4 in this side, all have sea views, some on the ground floor by the pool, or on the balcony with a full sea view. Pool is lovely and good for lengths before breakfast. Breakfast, lunch and dinner here were amazing. If you are only staying 2 nights in Mirisssa, have dinner here one night, the other at Salt on the main beachfront. The rooms are clean, with interesting bathrooms which are half open to the night sky, which is lovely. The staff are very helpful and it was a very serene experience. We went into Mirissa beach to swim and surf, then to Welligamba for a surf lesson which is better for beginners.

Lovely house, good location and friendly, very helpful staff but seriously overpriced for what you get in the end. If you want clean towels or your room cleaned you'll have to hunt down one of the three guys working there. You can walk into Mirissa however with kids it's better with a tuktuk.

Unfortunately this guest did not complain about anything during the 3 days of her stay but later asked for a partial refund which we refused. We believe that our rates are not excessive for the service provided. The excellent reviews we receive is proof of this. There are many options available nearby for the price conscious travelers.

Villa Athulya is a beautiful hotel located in Mirissa. The uniqe architecture and the antique furniture gave the hotel a unique beauty. Rooms are spacious and well designed with all the equipments. My kids loved the pool and enjoyed throughly. Pool and the whole hotel is well cleaned and well maintained. Villa has a very good Chef. We had delicious meals throughout our stay. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The beach surrounded the hotel is so beautiful. There are rock pools and you find multi coloured coral fish in it. My kids enjoyed the beach very much and they collected plenty of beautiful seashells. My family and I had a fantastic time . Highly recommend Villa ATHULYA for a family Holiday.

I had a wonderful stay at Villa Athulya with my family. Its a fabulously built property with class and comfort in mind. Its tastefully decorated based on a theme with really nice antiques all around the villa. Kids loved the pool, which was well maintained and the large open garden area that leads to the beach. There is a really nice rock pool few step away from the Villa that has several varieties of colorful fish in it, kids had a great time snorkeling with the fish, Scenery from the property especially the sunrise and sunset was stunning! Rooms are clean, well equipped and nicely furnished, and are very spacious. As a family of four we has a very comfortable stay. Staff is very helpful and go the extra mile to make your stay comfortable. They have a wonderful chef in house and the food that we had was the best Sri Lankan food we have had from any hotel in the country. Highly recommend this Villa to anyone travelling down south of Sri Lanka,
