We had a great stay at Villa Atulya with extended family. We booked both villas (5 rooms each) & each with their own pool. There’s large garden spaces in both so it’s great for kids or a friendly game of cricket. The villa manager Ranga & his team ensured everyone was comfortable. The food was really good and everyone enjoyed their stay. The sea front right outside the villa is rocky so be sure to pack water shoes or sandals. Having said that, there’s lot of marine life visible in the naturally formed tide pools. To the right of the villa is a small natural pool / Bay Area that is great to chill in (and also for varieties of fish). Further down to the right there are pretty big waves but it’s not suitable for body boarding because of the rocks. I’d really recommend Villa Atulya for a group vacation.

We paid for the villa which has 5 rooms and can also be used as one suite with 3 rooms. Rooms are spacious, clean and has all the amnesties. Bathrooms are spacious. The villa has this beautiful vintage feel with all the modern facilities, it was a perfect getaway for just us. The staff was helpful and f riendly, we bought the dry rations and they cooked the meals. Meals were good. The pool was well maintained and kids love it. Beach right infront of the villa was not so great, but if you walked down a bit it's nice. Definitely a good option for times n likes of Covid!

We had a great stay with our 2 boys at Atulya Villa. Enjoyed to the best. Rooms were very spacious and had all amenities needed. One speciality was that bathrooms are huge and was excellent. You definitely will get a homey feeling when you stay. One last thing, the awesome beach with super blue and clean water.

This place is an amazing choice for a family or friends vacation. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful looking into everything we required. They even altered the menu for our tastes. They served the best Sri Lankan food that we've had. The place was well maintained and the ambience was very home centered. We enjoyed every bit of our vacation.

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 !

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.

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.

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,
