We stayed two nights with Sanjeewa and it was one of our best stays in Sri Lanka. Sanjeewa and his sister were very friendly and helpful and made delicious food. The beds were comfortable, the rooms spacious and clean, and the environment was quiet. The guesthouse is located a short, ten-minute walk to a lovely lake (Nuwara Wewa).

We stayed with Sanjeewa for 3 nights & had the most fantastic stay. Superb service, impressive attention to detail, lots of little extra touches, and his local Sri Lankan food (breakfast & dinner) simply outstanding. He gave great local information too. Highly recommend staying here. Quiet location too & rooms spotlessly clean & beautiful bed linen.

Absolutely lovely - cool, relaxing air conditioned rooms, a parking space and best of all, superb food elegantly presented in the small outdoor dining area. I have to be gluten free and great care was taken of this. Breakfast the best we have had in Sri Lanka. Dinner is also Sri Lankan style, all cooked by the owner, and while spicy, without the fierceness that some of us Europeans find too much! Great value and highly recommended.

The Villa is in a class of its own. All the excellent reviews are absolutely spot on. Sanjeewa organised our transfer from Colombo to The Villa (excellent) and all our sightseeing was organised by him too. He works with a really good, handpicked team, so we got great drivers, an excellent tuk-tuk driver (Adjith, who was much more than just a tuk-tuk driver) and a first class welcome to Sri Lanka. We agree with all other reviewers that meals at The Villa are superb. The Villa is a special place, and Sanjeewa is an extraordinarily good host.

We had the best time in The Villa during our 4 nights stay. The owner is such a kind and caring person, and the food he prepares is just incredible, breakfast and dinner! You can rent bikes to go see the ruins in Anuradhapura (for a really fair price), he gave us a map, some cold towel for the day, it was perfect. We could also wash our clothes there, and we had lovely evenings on the terrace of the house, listening to the peacocks. Don't miss this stop if you go to Anarudhapura!
