Conveniently located along the Matara-Tangalle route. Easy access to Talalla beach. Colonial style Villa situated in a coconut estate (with peacocks and other birds, squirrels often showing up). Clean rooms and decent food. Spa treatment for 35USD/p. Had a whale of a time in the swing 😍. Staff and Manager were very accommodating. Happy stay overall!

We stayed for two nights in handun villas and spent most of our time bathing and eating in this place and beach. The staff are very professional and friendly, yet genuine. Communication was smooth because they speak english well. The room we stayed in felt very luxurious and well maintained to us. We do not have any negatives to share. Especially the restaurant staff really went the extra mile to give us everything we wished for in a heartbeat. The food is amazing, if you have the chance, order your curries more than an hour upfront; we ate so much we became unable to move. The food is cooked with daily fresh produce and left us speechless.

+ Hotel has a long driveway so it’s a distance away from the main road. + Room had good air con unit + Mosquito repellant plugs were provided + Filtered water machine available + Very much appreciated it’s stance on single use plastic - WiFi: codes provided in the room were incorrect and after getting the right code from front desk the connection was terrible - Bathroom: is partially open which meant it was open to bugs and mosquitoes. Whilst I understand the appeal of an open bathroom we found three huge cockroaches at night and the bath tub was very dirty. - Noise: whilst it’s away from the street we were woken up every morning by the clanging of cutlery and crockery. The ceiling fan was also very noisy. - Pool: was dirty went we arrived and as a result wasn’t very appealing. The back drop to the pool isn’t appealing either - does not look like the photos. Looked like an unkempt area full of dead leaves and faces a breeze block wall.

Dear lemondifficult, Thank you for your review. Glad you enjoyed your stay with us and giving feed back which help us to improve further. We do accept the fact that past few days we have had some house keeping issues which we have taken action to eliminate in future. We would like to address the issues you have mentioned. - WIFI - We in Talalla use 4G connections and there maybe signal drops. We do not have the fibre cables yet which the government if Sri Lanka is working on Laying as we speak. Until such time we are left with the 4G connection. Therefore, thank you for baring with us. - Bathrooms - Yes indeed the open bathrooms are a guests favourite. But there is no excuse to find Cockroaches and like we mentioned earlier the house keeping team is now strengthened to improve cleanliness of the Villa. - Noise - We will look into this matter and advise our staff about the inconvenience caused to you. - Pool - the backdrop is an unfortunate event. Due to heavy rains last year the two big trees fell down and this year its so dry it takes a lot of resources to keep the left over grass green. Thank you for your feedback. Once more thank you for your feedback and we encourage all our guests to tell us in person or write to us on how we can improve further. Warm regards, The management at Handun Villas

The pool and garden area are really nice, and clean. Staff is very friendly. The property is on the other side of the street from the beach, but the rooms are far enough from the road so there is no noise disturbance. The standard room has all the needed amenities, and the bed is comfy. Only minus point, sometimes there was a little smell from the pipes, but with the AC on it goes away quickly. We would go back anytime.
