“Perfect Escape”
Reviewed August 11, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Absolutely amazing villa looking straight out onto the Indian Ocean. We spent the days sipping fresh coconut water and enjoying the delicious food prepared by Ruwan. With its charming features, picture perfect surroundings and unrivaled location, I'd recommend Villa Samudra to anyone in a heartbeat!

“Fantastic relaxing beach stay”
Reviewed June 1, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

person found this review helpful

We visited Villa Samudra during Chinese New Year and stayed for 5 days. The villa is in a gorgeous spot on the quiet and empty Samudra beach. It is beautifully decorated and has a mature private garden with a great lawn where our 3 boys (12, 10 and 8) played football and games. We all enjoyed spending time lounging around the pool, resting in the hammock overlooking the beach and the sea. The beach is very clean, fine sand and no rocks or stones, with perfect waves for body boarding and wave jumping, allowing for hours of surfing and swimming. The location of the villa allowed for easy access to explore the amazing Fort at Galle and Weligama surfing beach. The staff were very friendly and the food was superb, especially the local selection of dishes. We had a fantastic time and really enjoyed the laid back and relaxing atmosphere. We we will definitely be coming back.

Such a magical place! Right on the beach that you pretty much have to yourself. The house is beautiful with such a lovely feel to it and the team that run the house are so kind and cook such delicious food.

“The most incredible beach villa and holiday imaginable”
Reviewed May 1, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Samudra beach house has been designed to the highest standard using local influences and is spacious with an extremely comfortable, open planned, living area that seamlessly blends into a lush, landscaped lawn framed with palm trees. The white picket gate at the end of the lawn, a lovely touch, leads directly onto a golden beach with panoramic views of the Lakshadweep Sea.

The beach house comes with warm and gracious, yet discreet staff who will cater to your needs. Every day they cooked us the most delicious, authentic, fresh Sri Lankan dishes and we got on so well that we invited them to have a sing along with us and a local Sri Lankan band we hired to play one evening on the lawn.

Take a dip in the warm sea, cool off and relax in the infinity pool and have your cares rubbed away by a professional masseuse. You’ll be wholly and fully engulfed by the luxury Samudra beach house has to offer but it is worth remembering, despite the conscious effort, to leave at some point to see all the beauty the rest of Sri Lanka has to offer. Fortunately the security guard will help arrange a TukTuk to help get you on your way.

“Tropical Bliss”
Reviewed April 20, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

I have never stayed in a more magical location. From the hammock swinging in the breeze to elegant dragonflys dancing on the surface of the swimming pool, I immediately felt relaxed and on holiday. The charming and attentive staff did not fail to ensure we were well looked after throughout our 10 day stay. I would recommend this wonderful place to anyone who is in need of a relaxing break from their homeland and in need of some tropical bliss.

“A tropical dream”
Reviewed April 20, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We stayed at Samudra Beach House and were just blown away. A huge beautiful open kitchen/living space, high ceilings, cool luxury rooms to retreat to, amazing decor (the vintage wheels from old tea-crushing machines hanging on the walls are a great touch). The garden leads immediately onto the beach and when the tide is high you can hop into the sea in about three steps. The beach seems endless in both directions and, other than a few fishermen towards sundown, is deserted. We released baby turtles into the sea from the sanctuary on the beach, amazing. Beautiful hazy evenings watching the sun sink into the sea from the edge of the garden. The staff cooked us fresh fish on the barbecue with traditional local sauces. Lying back in the pool all you can see is palm trees and sky with the sound of the Indian Ocean in the background. Magical.

“Paradise”
Reviewed April 14, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

From the second I walked through the gates I never wanted to leave. The house is exquisite and opens up to the most picturesque view of a golden sand beach framed with palm trees.
We were looked after tremendously by the staff, who are both great company but also marvellous cooks.
I would recommend Samudra beach house to anyone who's searching for their own Paradise.
