If you're looking for a holiday with some exclusivity, this would be it. Apa Villa has 7 suites (living area, bedroom and bathroom) and quite spacious ones too. We stayed in the saffron villa and loved every bit of it. The service was excellent, staff was very polite and were quite ready to make our stay comfortable. There's a large garden with a well manicured lawn and plenty coconut trees which I'm sure were preserved when designing the swimming pool. You get butler service and EXCELLENT food. I spent most of the time reading, while lounging on a hammock while hearing the waves of the ocean. You can't quite bathe in the sea because of the reefs, other than it's quite a perfect place I'm sure we will visit again.

We stayed at Apa Villa as a group of 3 families, 6 adults and 6 children. The resort is simply stunning, with breathtaking views over the ocean and a beautiful swimming pool. All 7 suites are finished to the highest standard, there are 2 family rooms which were just perfect for the children to be close enough but far enough away at the same time. We spent the days lazing in the hammocks under the palm trees, building sandcastles on the beach or swimming in the pool, which was broken up by eating so much wonderful food prepared by the chef and served straight to our verandahs by the butlers. One night we had a seafood buffet and the prawns, lobster and crab was simply superb! The children enjoyed all of their meals too. The service received was first class, nothing was too much trouble and we felt like we had complete privacy the whole time during our stay. The beds are so comfy and complete with mosquito nets which our little girl loved sleeping under. Apa Villa has been tastefully designed with a library and games for the children, TVs, sitting areas and fans in the suites. Apa Villa is perfect for a group of friends or families or likewise a great honeymoon spot too! Thank you so much Suresh and all of the staff we will be back again!!!

We booked the cinnamon suite for USD $260 and it became one of the worst experiences I’ve had. The toilet is old dirty and badly maintained. The toilet seat was stained and the flush doesn’t work. In fact at one point we couldn’t use the bathroom and they had to get someone to fix it. They also didn’t have any rooms free nor a toiling we could use until it was fixed. The room is musty and the linen old. Carpets are dirty as have not been steam cleaned. The middle carpet is not rubber backed and we almost slipped on it. Very dangerous. The common living area is used as storage as you can see in my pictures. They keep all the outdoor pool mats in the common living area. Paintings on the floor wiring out. Just very underwhelming and disappointing. Sri Lanka is a beautiful country and has beautiful villa’s and while this has great potential as it’s a well built villa, currently it’s very badly maintained and needs a huge upgrade. Service is also so so. Breakfast menu is basic. No meat item offered with the Sri Lankan breakfast and the western breakfast also has very little choice. Only toast with your choice of eggs and one accompaniment. I’m extremely disappointed and would not recommend this to anyone. All pictures attached.

I visited here with my husband, 2 kids (8 & 5) and my parents. We were all so impressed with the place. It is a beautiful setting, lovely villa, spacious clean and tidy bedrooms, and the staff were very attentive and friendly. The manager was extremely friendly and helpful and organised tuk tuks for us for a few trips we wanted to do. All the staff were very polite and helpful. There is no dining room here which we actually really liked - they served our meals on the verandah outside the bedroom - the verendah is big and it means that you get to have your meal by the gardens (lit up at night) whilst listening to the ocean. The pool is lovely and clean, there's lots of hammocks and sunloungers around the garden. The villa is right on the beach but the only down side is that there are coral in the sea which makes it difficult to swim. But we walked about 200m to the left to a spot where there's a nice little beach cafe and a rope swing - there was less coral here and my son and I really enjoyed playing in the waves here. We were all very impressed with Apa Villa and will definitely be back!

Apa Villa is a wonderful place, situated right off the beach, with spectacular views on the Indian Ocean. The suite we stayed at was perfect, large and spacious with all the amenities you would expect from a 5* hotel. The staff were extremely courteous and friendly and were available at a moments notice. Breakfast and meals are served on the terrace in front of your room. There is a beautiful beach in front of the hotel, and if you walk down the beach you will find large rock pools to go and take a dip in. If you prefer a dip in a pool, there is a beautiful one located in the gardens of the property. If you like to surf, you will find amazing breaks right in front of the hotel. We spent Christmas at the hotel and the dinner served was amazing, with grilled lobster, tiger prawns and great wine on offer, and all for a very reasonable price for 4 persons. Should you wish to explore the region, Galle is only a 15 minute drive from Apa Villa, where you can enjoy a great town with a rich history and great restaurants. I would highly recommend Apa Villa to anyone staying on the south coast of Sri Lanka. We look forward to our next trip to Apa Villa.
