We stayed there for 3 nights and our stay was fantastic. Location is just a few minutes walk to Unawatuna beach, and the bus stop from Galle station is just in front of the hotel. Breakfast was included, and we really enjoyed Sri Lankan breakfast. Service was amazing here, the staff are very friendly and helpful. When we went to... More

A beautiful villa, just a short walk away from the beach. The staff were incredibly kind and friendly , and accommodated us with everything we needed during our stay. Highly recommended for comfort, cleanliness and ambiance. I would definitely come back for the experience.

Probably not the best location, but once inside the hotel it was delightful. Superb service and nothing was too much trouble. We had a tuk tuk most days to a quieter beach (at no charge), beach towels, water and even a tour of Galle Fort in the owners 1950s open top Wolsey! Very professionally managed and good food (also catering... More

Although close to the road, the rooms are very quiet. The gardens are stunning (several chill out spots along the stairway to the top terrace). The welcome and service is amazing, little touches such as fresh juice when you arrive just make your day. Friendly staff and beautiful hotel. Overall great ! Thank you.

A hotel that once was a leading silver jewellery factory pre-tsunami. The owner survived alongside his wife by scrambling to the highest hill behind the hotel. The factory was then converted into this stunning hotel, with both husband and wife helping alongside the design and structure. All the sculptures are handmade by Sami and his stunning wife who has created... More

We were fortunate to chance upon Ridee Villa while searching for a good hotel/accommodation along Unawatuna. It is not a big name and it not even categorized under "Hotels" in TA so I am really happy we found it nonetheless. This is a family-run place and has a nice story behind it, if you are lucky, the owner himself will... More

We stayed here because Ridee Villa got great reviews on booking.com. I totally get why. It's a great facility with a great story. If you like to stay at unique places, then Ridee won't disappoint. It's in a great location as well....you can walk along the nice Hutch beach and have more restaurants to walk to then you'll have time... More

We stayed here for two nights and absolutely LOVED our stay. This family run hotel has been by far the best place we've stayed. The owners and staff alike are wonderful, amazingly helpful and so friendly. The owners are fluent in English and the hotel is VERY Clean. There are unusual statues and Sri Lankan decor everywhere which sets it... More

Great hotel to stay in if you are in Unawatuna. When you arrive you not only receive a warm welcome you get a cold face towel and a nice cool drink too. The whole place is elegantly decorated and oozes class. The main beach is 100m walk. The owner provides a shuttle to Jungle beach if you want to explore... More
