The location was truly amazing on all aspects from the food and hospitality to the cleanliness of the rooms. Compliments to the management on attention to detail in terms of available amenities. Entire property has an elegant decor and a mixer of Dutch and Portuguese architecture prominently seen in the Galle area.

Excellent an enjoyable stay. The hotel is very peaceful and located very close to the beach. Beautiful landscapes with a private swimming pool. The room was neat and clean. Great in house and local food, I would definitely recommend The Mugatiya.

I stayed once again at The Mugatiya as I returned to Ahangama with the family. As usual the staff and service were fantastic. They always have nice attentions when it comes to serve breakfast or arrange the bedroom. The house is always so calm that one can rest well, and close to the beach to catch the early morning waves. For sure will return there soon.

We totally loved Mugatiya! We stayed in The Mugatiya Villa for 4 days with our family (6 adults and 4 children) in the Christmas days. Arriving at Mugatiya you immediately enter a different world: a world of peace, quiet and tasteful luxury. The rooms are very well designed and maintained with nice bathrooms and open to sky showers! The service was extremely friendly & professional. The staff provides a perfect balance between being proactive & attentive and yet provide enough privacy, and the cooking of Sampath (the manager and chef) was beyond excellent!Super relaxing days that began with an excellent breakfast, swimming in the wonderful pool, massages (available on request), observing squirrels, monitor lizards, monkeys and the greenery around. The property is well located close to all services, beach & nice restaurants, shopping in Gall and yet private and gives a complete feeling of rest & tranquility. There are enough spaces in Mugatiya for everyone to do their own thing: swim, play chess, read some poetry in the library or just relax on the various lounge options. We highly recommend this place and will definitely love to return! Thank you Sampath & team!
