He helped arrange transportation and excursions with highly trustworthy and experienced individuals at very good prices. My schedule most mornings had me departing before breakfast was served, but he had his staff still make... More

Hotel is close to the beach (2min) but away from the beachnoise, even though Ridee Villa is close to the road, there is not much noise from it.

What a lovely 2 nights! It is just across the road from the beach and the rooms are beautiful and clean. The service is phenomenal and the owners even organised a ride through Galle in one of their vintage cars. Highly recommended!
