Clean, airy and spacious. The perfect quiet spot, away from the tourist hordes and buffets.
The staff were friendly and helpful, the food was superb.

Dasun also Organized a jeep for us to visit Yala.

“Stellar Villa”
Reviewed August 19, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Had the pleasure of spending a few days in December 2014 holiday season at Jacana Villa. We were a family of 8 (6 adults, 2 kids) and the villa was the perfect accommodation for our needs. The villa itself is airy, modern and spacious, with plenty of room and nicely furnished.

Beside the fantastic villa and the location, the best aspect of our stay was the staff. The caretaker was great and the resident cook crafted some delicious, authentic meals. We were very well looked after! The day excursions to Yala National Park and Kataragama are very convenient.

A real gem of a place. Lucky to have discovered it and can’t wait to return!

“Stunning Place; Amazing Staff”
Reviewed August 2, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

My wife and I stayed at Jacana Villa with a few extended family members. The place is stunning, beautifully laid out and comfortable. The staff make you feel like royalty and are always smiling. The food that was cooked for us was unbelievable. They even organise a good, knowledgable jeep to take you on the safari (which is better than any other jeep service you can get on your own).

Special mention must be made of Dasun - who runs around to make sure you are having a great time. He even led us on a walk through the village behind the villa.

Highly recommended!
