Stella Beach Villa is a luxurious house with 4 spatious rooms that all have individual baths - 2 of which being beautifully located outside.
all the pictures you can see in the description are genuine - it´s really that beautiful!

Gayan and his team make sure no wish remains open, the food is phantastic and any other needs (additional beds for children, kids car seats, organizing cars/transfers, massages, whale watching etc) are perfectly handled, the staff is constantly busy to ensure rooms, pool area etc are clean.

“My Daughter's 18th celebration Stay”
Reviewed April 25, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

As a family we wanted something special and practical for our stay in Sri Lanka. Having read all of the other reviews we chose this property. It remains to say that this is one of the best family holidays we have all had together. It was very easy to book through George and he put us in contact with Gayan who manages the place locally. He and the other 5 full time staff could not have done anything better. Gayan organised our daily meal requirements, advised on things todo as well as organising the transport. But it was the effort to make my daughter feel special on her 18th Birthday that really was exceptional. Right down to organising a decorated cake and midnight fireworks.
This place, the people and the location are the real deal. I have returned to tell a host of friends who have already attempted to book. Stella Beach Villa couldn't be more perfect. Thank you George, Gayan and the team for a marvellous stay.

“Stunning beach oasis”
Reviewed March 26, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

people found this review helpful

We had a week at Stella beach villa in Feb and without a doubt it was one of the most amazing holidays we have ever had. Gayan and the team made us feel so welcome that at the end of the week, we didn't want to leave. We have two young daughters and they had the time of their lives, playing in pool, catching hermit crabs, trying the wonderful food that chef Suranga cooked for us and hanging out with Baxter, the coolest dog on the planet.

Stella beach villa is ideally located to a number of attractions such as tea plantations, child friendly beaches, the bustling city of Matara and it's markets. One day we took a Tuk Tuk to the local fish market to catch our dinner. The prawn curry was absolutely amazing!

Stella beach villa is an oasis in a virtually undiscovered part of the world. I thoroughly recommend it as the ideal destination to explore this amazing country.

“Really great stay-beautiful villa”
Reviewed February 18, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

A large group of us stayed here for 4 nights and we couldn't have been happier. The villa was absolutely beautiful, and the pool was perfect. We also enjoyed watching the sunset by the ocean and top quality Sri Lankan breakfasts and dinners made by the on-site chef. It was relaxed but very well run. Highly recommended!

“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.
