After having spent a very hectic week in Singapore The Reef Villa was the perfect antidote. The staff were so friendly and attentive and nothing was too much bother for them. The room was something out of Arabian Nights and to walk out of the room onto the lawn and stroll through the palm trees down to the sea was...

We spent a week at the Reef Villa and enjoyed this beautiful and quiet place a lot: the spacious suite with great views to the palmtree orchard and the ocean, the tastefully decorated rooms and lounge, the nice landscaping when walking in and out the resort, the extremely friendly and helpful staff, the great chef Silva, who even created dishes...

Thank you for your second recent review and for staying with us. We know you wished to access your suite on arrival early morning but I reiterate we were unable to offer you early check in, as we were fully booked. This was explained several times by email to you prior to arrival. Regardless you still arrived early and we...

This was our sixth and final destination in our return visit to Sri Lanka. The moment we arrived, I knew that we had saved the best until last. The grounds and rooms had been so cleverly designed; a plethora of South Indian antiques removed one immediately from the C20th and C21st, The food is delicious, the Spa magnificent, the staff...

Hello, we have been staying in 14 hotels in three weeks in sri lanka. This one was clearly outstanding. So whatever you do before or after, don't miss that place. The Rooms are breathtaking in size but also nicely designed to every detail. You can feel the authentic passion about collecting and designing an individual athmosphere. Best Detail: Chandle light...

The interiors of Reef are the most extraordinary expression of colonial chic you will see anywhere. The detail, taste and originality are quite exceptional. The food is remarkable and quite frankly, after having lived in SL for 5 years, I was really very impressed. It is one of those rare places that is both very expensive but also worth it....

My English teacher taught me to use superlatives sparingly.....for this hotel I have to ignore her advice. It is simply the best hotel I have ever stayed in and for these reasons: It is stylish. It offered the highest level of service but discreetly. No request was too small. The kindness shown to us was willingly given. The menu was...

When you step foot into the Reef Villa be careful not to trip over your own jaw. This hotel is simply spectacular. In a world full of 5-star resort properties promising to overwhelm you with style and white-glove service, this oasis leaves them in the dust. Brendan, the proprietor has an extraordinary eye, and each space in the hotel has...

We spent four days at this wonderful hotel and did not want to leave.
