Absolutely gorgeous spot. Staff are friendly, attentive and very accommodating. We were made to feel right had home. We chose this destination as they are one of the very few pet friendly holiday spots. Staff are all animal lovers and constantly showered a doggy with affection & care. The food was very flavourful and filling, but would have liked a bit more variety. Room was spacious, very comfortable & tastefully laid out. All in all it was a wonderful and restful weekend. Recommend 100%

A wonderful colonial bungalow transformed into a bespoke boutique villa, We really enjoyed our stay here. The property is a Hueenery age Coconut plantation with lush greenery all around. The Villa is a well-maintained traditional bungalow with all the modern amenities of a modern Villa. We spent a lot of time walking the gardens and saw a couple of peacocks as well, along with chilling in the extremely nice pool that overlooks the garden. The food was on point with special emphasis on Authentical Sri Lankan meals along with some great seafood western dishes. The staff were all very welcoming and attended to our every need and went out of their way to help us with whatever we needed. We traveled with our 3-year-old daughter and it was perfect for her as she had enough things to explore. A very high recommend here for a coupe and family trip.

We stayed at Handun Villas in July 2022. The grounds are beautiful yet have a natural feel as there are farming activities and peacocks roaming. Our room was spacious, clean and fully equipped, for instance with drinking water and organic toileteries. All staff were kind, welcoming and helpful. The pool was very clean and the stunning beach easily accessible across the road. I also booked a massage, for which a sweet local woman was hired - the best massage I had in Sri Lanka. Laundry service was swift. We had all meals at Handun and our wish to eat local food was kindly fulfilled - very tasty.

We found this place on Trip advisor when we were desperately searching for a Pet friendly location in south coast to travel on the same day. This place is just AMAZING and PET Friendly at the same time! Very well maintained and the staff and the owners are the best you find in the trade.. absolutely stunning property which will mesmerize with the heritage of 100 yrs it holds. Huge garden, spacious rooms, pool and a bathroom to die for…. It a place you SHOULDN’T MISS if you ever visit Sri Lanka!!!! Great job guys and keep up the good work!!!

A wonderful place to stay. Just a few hundred metres from the Beach at Kottegoda. Set far back from the road on a wonderful Colonial Style Villa, surrounded by Coconut Trees and beautiful planting, the driveway to the Villa itself is regal and stunning.. Peacocks, pranced across the lawns and a small troop of playful monkeys entertained us for hours as they play in the trees near our Villa. The rooms are tastefully decorated, with outdoor bathrooms that allow the rain to fall into the room, which is fitted with high quality fittings. The Chef and Staff at Handun Villas provide excellent food and 1st class service. We were impressed and would happily return.. Well Done all. Thank you Heshan Steve

Loved the mix of being in a coconut estate and getting up to the calls of Peacocks and a pristine beach across the road. We were fortunate to see a beautiful Peacock dance too! Beautiful and comfortable rooms . The food was excellent. Lovely relaxing family holiday!! Highly recommend!
