As with many travellers coming to Sri Lanka, we were met by our driver at Columbo airport and were taking straight to Villa Hundira to re-charge overnight after our flight from London. We arrived mid afternoon to a warm and friendly welcome. Our room was huge and very clean. We spent some time by the pool which was lovely (no one else was around!) before heading to the restaurant area for dinner. We tried the Sri Lankan curry and wow - what an introduction to Sri Lankan food. It was amazing and one of the best we had whilst on our tour of the country. We would definitely return to this lovely boutique hotel if we come back to Sri Lanka.

This property is a stylish, beautifully designed and landscaped boutique oasis. It has a wonderfully "zen" feel, with lots of interesting corners containing locally made artefacts and furniture - quirky luxury! What an absolute treat to stay here for our first night in Sri Lanka after a ten-hour flight. We felt wonderfully pampered and excellently fed . Wish we could have stayed longer and enjoyed the swimming pools.

Like many people, we only stayed one night here on our arrival in Sri Lanka. This was a shame, because it really is a beautifully and very thoughtfully designed homestay right on the edge of Negombo Lagoon. It is a lovely, peaceful spot and, besides having well appointed rooms and two swimming pools, the buildings are landscaped round a man-made creek and there is roof terrace overlooking one of the pools and the lagoon. Delicious cuisine, attentive, hospitable staff - we were only sorry we weren't there long enough to take out one of the canoes and visit the monkey island offshore. Indira, the owner, was very welcoming and helpful. Highly recommended.

As mentioned in an earlier review, there really is a 'wow' moment as you enter an absolute oasis through a simple garden gate. The scope and scale of what lies inside (two pool areas, lovely gardens, craft workshop, river running through the grounds) is a copmplete surprise. What a shame we only had one night here before we caught an early flight the next morning. The menu wasn't extensive (but enough to allow for a two night stay) and the room was certainly one of the most comfortable we had stayed in during our time in the country.

This boutique hotel is a short cab-ride from the airport and was recommended to us by friends as the perfect spot to chill out after a long flight. We were not disappointed. We arrived at 4:00am and had taken the precaution of booking our room for the night before so that we could grab some sleep on arrival. That proved to be a very good call and the hotel were very happy to allow us to take a late breakfast to allow us more time. We then spent the day relaxing and enjoying the friendly hospitality. All oi the staff were super-helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Dinner was very good and, after a full night's rest we were ready to enjoy our Sri Lanka tour.
