“The simply wonderful life”
Reviewed March 25, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Khomba House presents a most ideal setting for spending time with friends or family, the layout of the house, garden and beach hut provides great space for sharing and seclusion. The dolphin and wildlife park excursions provided exceptional experiences worth getting off the day beds for but also timed and managed perfectly. We delighted in the beautiful design of the house and the incredibly gracious hosting. Manager Sisera, his wife Indrani and their crew, looked after all our needs with beautiful sri lankan food, perfect timing for tea, ease in making all arrangements for tours, pumping up the tires on the bikes and being utterly delightful to chat to and to learn about the area and the country. The nearby resorts especially Pelagama staff extended similarly warm and helpful hospitality with great pool side snacks, cold beers and coconuts fresh off the tree.

“Wonderful!”

Khomba House is a real discovery, perfectly situated with a lovely spacious garden which led down to the very clean and deserted beach. The design has been painstakingly thought through with cool airy seating areas and very comfortable loungers dotted around the house. The bedrooms are wonderfully spacious with extremely comfortable beds and walk in showers which are open to the elements. The real plus is the lovely Sisera and Indira who looked after us beautfully and kept the house spotless. Indira's cooking was totally delicious and very varied using all locally sourced ingredients and every meal was a real treat. A very relaxing spoiling stay and I would definately love to visit again. PS It is also a real bonus to be able to stroll over to the other camps too and enjoy a swim in their pool!

“Amazing holiday”

Beautiful house tastefully decorated. The amplitude of the rooms, the spacious porch, tropical landscape and the beach a few meters are perfect to enjoy a nice stay. The service staff is almost invisible, the sense of privacy is huge, making you feel at home. The attention is perfect and the food absolutely delicious. A highly recommended place for a relaxing stay. A perfect place for families or couples.

“Khomba House - Fantastic!”
Reviewed May 18, 2011 for a stay in March 2011

We stayed in Khomba House for 8 days and it was by far the best place we have ever stayed. The house itself is beautifully designed, with cool breezes running through it's open plan, incredibly spacious rooms and delightful features throughout. Sisera and Indira looked after us so well and nothing seemed too much for them. Indira's cooking must surely rival the best chefs in Sri Lanka - her curries are knockout and I would especially recommend the Chilli Crab. Sisera lit up every day with his amazing smile, he was so friendly and they were both great.

The place itself is a bit off the beaten track and so relaxing. It is far superior to the overcrowded beaches of Galle etc... in the South. There are three resorts down the beach, all of which are extremely laid back so that you can move from one to another and are welcomed at each. Bar Reef is immediately next door and has an enormous saltwater pool, and then there is Palagama next to that with it's equally large freshwater pool. I cannot recommend Khomba House highly enough, and I have stayed in many a villa - we shall certainly be back to this hidden gem!
