“Awesome 2 nights”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

We enjoyed a two day stay over at Ayana Villa, no doubts the perfect way to end our Sri lankan holiday. The location of Ayana Villa is fantastic, not too far from the city centre, yet feeling close to nature, listening to birds and enjoying bit of wild life in the banks of Bolgoda lake. The view of the riverside (lake view room) was stunning, and enjoyed it all day. Ayana staff is very friendly, caring and most importantly paid close attention to our needs. Still remember the taste of fresh papaya juice you brought us, as we arrive, tired and thirsty after hot mid-day excursions. Very thoughtful and caring.

The villa has an elegant design with open plan layout with natural looks, yet allowing highest level of complete comfort in total privacy. Villa's room amenities including comfortable queen beds, LCD TV, hot water, DVD and free Wi-Fi in the court yard areas. The lake view room (where we stayed) was ultra-spacious with 'open to air' bathroom, giving a great experience of an out door shower in a tropical Island setting. My favourite spot was the library, checking emails in early morning hours, listening to birds, in a serene atmosphere surrounded by water.

Highlight of our stay was the get-to-gather Ayana staff organized for our friends and family. It was a memorable experience for our guest, as they arrived in a ferry and took a short yet romantic drive along the gravel path, lit with traditional bamboo torches, to the villa. It was a indeed a great experience for both adults and children. Party atmosphere was great and appreciated by all our guests, indeed a fabulous night we remember forever.

Last but not least it was a lovely stay, tasty food and excellent customer service by Ayana staff. We'll definitely make a return trip with our friends and family next time.

Room Tip: Rooms with lake view was my choice
