After two hectic weeks of touring it was wonderful to spend three nights of rest and relaxation here. What an amazingly interesting hotel, you could spend days just admiring the collection of antiques, trinkets and treasures gathered from the owners' own globe trotting. The attention to detail is inspiring, from the artfully arranged collections (loved the games cupboard) to the... More

My husband and I just spent the weekend at the Reef. It was the perfect start to our Sri Lankan holiday. The resort is intimate and extremely relaxing. The food and service are top notch. The owners are delightful and they take pride in every detail at their beach hide away. We loved every minute of our stay and didn't... More

An absolutely amazing place. Went on honeymoon just after New Year and we had the best four days of our holiday. We never left the premises. The attention to detail is second to none both in terms of architecture, rooms, food, staff - everything. Staff are great and attentive, the rooms are larger than some apartments and the restaurant is... More

We started and finished our trip to Sri Lanka at Reef Villa, so in total were there for 6 nights. It was absolutely wonderful....from the suites (which are stunning!), to the food (the best food we have had in any hotel any where around the world!), to the staff (who couldn't do enough for us - they even re-packaged a...

After a number of searches online, having never been to Sri Lanka. Reef Villa really stood out, due to all the positive reviews and ratings, so we booked. We're really glad we did, the place is absolutely stunning and beautifully located. When we arrived the grounds were lovely, it was like walking into a hidden oasis, so well maintained and... More

We wanted a relaxing few days after getting married and that is exactly what we got. The room was beautiful and as well as the surroundings- the food... More
