“The BEST villa experience we have ever had”
Reviewed February 9, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

WOW! We had high expectations for our stay at Stella Beach and Gayan and team did not disappoint. The villa is amazing - clean, new, well designed, private. I have no complaints about the villa at all, but what makes this place amazing is the staff. Gayan would always help schedule our day and it was never a problem to be driven to a great beach, tea plantation, etc. He was always there to help out. Suran, the chef, belongs in a 5 star hotel. He is that good. The ingredients are fresh and food is amazing. I actually had my 4 children, who are notorious for not agreeing, all eating the chicken and fish curries that Suran made.

The pool is fantastic. The beach is beautiful, but more of a surfing beach than a swimming beach due to closeness of rocks and heavy waves, but was never a problem to go somewhere else.

Staff looked after our every want/need and made this a spectacular experience for my family. We can not wait to go again.

“Private paradise”
Reviewed January 23, 2014 for a stay in August 2013

We where 3 families, each with 2 kids under the age of 4, and initially thought this May be a problem, as the accomodation is really set up for older families. However, through correspondence between George, the owner, and Gayan the manager, they really went out of their way to cater for our needs, including erecting a pool fence to keep the kids safe. The Villa is in the most magnificent grounds, perfect for kids to run around. The beach directly in front of the villa is small, but a short walk solves that problem, that's if the rim flow pool and massive lawn right up to the beach are not enough. A short Tuk-Tuk drive and you are anywhere you want to be, from Galle fort to other beaches. If you are a surfer, like our group, well you don't need to go further than directly in front of the villa, for either a left or right, and of fantastic quality. The rooms where very well presented, and exactly what we wanted for a beach holiday. The staff are fantastic, and really tried hard to make our stay there relaxing and enjoyable. The chef cooked up some great culinary delights, and any request was always presented with a smile. Gayan was a big help, always ready to assist in anyway he could. The villa is very private making it feel like it was our own little piece of heaven. We would not hesitate to recommend this villa to anyone. By the way, if transport to and from the airport is a problem, not to worry, they arrange that to, at competitive rates.

“You feel like you are on your own island in paradise with total privacy and so much space”
Reviewed August 6, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Our stay at Stella Beach can only be described as our best ever holiday. Gayan and his team took care of all our family needs and the villa, gardens and idillic location can only be described as paradise.

What a lovely charming country Sri Lanka is and we will most certainly be back soon.

“A fantastic return visit to Stella Beach Villa and once again Sri Lanka”
Reviewed April 3, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

We returned to Stella Beach Villa again this Easter for another fantastic holiday and are already booked up again for next year!

Sri Lanka remains reminiscent of South East Asia's coast line and country side that remained untouched and unspoilt from main stream tourists up until 30 years ago whilst Stella in itself offers a luxury stay in a stylish, coastal and secluded private villa.The best of both worlds!

The coastal road south of Galle remains life threatening, lethal and not for the faint hearted but the upside is that for those who are willing to take the risk then an amazing holiday awaits.
