“Perfect beach side escape - great food, location and service.”
Reviewed February 10, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We had such a fantastic stay here, visited because a friend highly recommended it and we were not disappointed.
The staff onsite were amazing and the food was second to none. Nothing was too much trouble.
The villa itself is beautifully furnished, the little touches like books, board games and tourist guides make such a difference.
Would recommend this to someone that wishes to relax in beautiful beach side surroundings,

“absolute paradise!”
Reviewed February 5, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

This place has it all! Set within a beautiful stretch of pristine coast line with lush tropical vegetation sprawling onto the golden sand, it really is paradise. The house itself is simply exquisite with everything one could possibly ask for to complete the perfect stay. The high end Sri Lankan interior design throughout the property rivals that of any top end hotel resort with the attention to detail adding a certain flare I have not experienced before; whether that be the ice cold flannels handed to you upon arrival scented with the most amazing fragrance to the flower petals dotted across the bed it really is an experience that is a must for anyone visiting this amazing country. A true highlight are the wonderful house staff who can be on hand throughout your stay to make your trip even more comfortable. I would highly recommend staying in and having the on site chef cook for you - his garlic and chilli prawns are to die for (his famous chilli eggs are also a must try at breakfast!). This place serves as a great place to simply kick back and relax for your entire stay or use as a great base given its convenient location whether you fancy a jungle safari, trek up Adam's peak or some whale watching! it really is too good too good to be true - I couldn't recommend it enough.

This place is perfect. The villa is so comfortable, the view is unbelievable especially at sunset. Just a magical place to spend your days.... But the real gem, the Staff! The nicest, most friendly people and the food is out of this World. Still dreaming about the prawn curry. Thank you for having us, will be back soon

“Amazing villa”
Reviewed January 24, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Samudra is seriously beautiful. Henri gave us a little run down of the history and I think you
guys have done an amazing job. The staff were warm but not intrusive and the food was possibly the best we had on
the entire island. The villa is designed to perfection. It looks like a home from a design publication whilst still
maintaining an incredible warmth and cosiness - we felt at home. The location is perfect - water views from every room and close enough to all of the sites

I will be recommending Samudra to anyone I know who is visiting Sri Lanka and I certainly hope to return

“Paradise”
Reviewed January 22, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

I couldn't recommend this villa enough. Set on the most stunning beach, with an insane view of the sea, it is without a doubt the most beautifully designed and decorated villa I have ever been to. With large open spaces, huge bedrooms, cool bathrooms, a lovely sized pool and garden it was complete and utter paradise. Above all we were spoilt rotten by the wonderful staff who went above and beyond to look after us. The food was delicious and the choice immense. All in all, it was a thoroughly enjoyable stay which we will remember forever. Thank you so much for literally making our trip in Sri Lanka!

“Excellent place”
Reviewed October 13, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The villa is beautifully decorated, very relaxing atmosphere and feels very homely. As a young married couple who were on honeymoon the warmth of the staff was excellent. Ruwan is an amazing cook. The food we had there was the best in whole Sri Lanka. We stayed at Samudra Beach a couple of days then moved to Rampart Street in Galle Fort. A wonderful stay , many thanks.

“A Little Slice Of Paradise....”
Reviewed September 12, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We were referred to this property by friends and for good reason.

This is a hands off, kick back, put your feet up, relax and refresh holiday home tucked away on a beautiful piece of Habaraduwa Beach. The Villa met or exceeded our expectations so much so that we decided we would try and return in early 2016 for another holiday here.

The staff were exceptional from start to finish and were only to happy to help out where they could. We ate out once and quickly realised that the best food in Galle is at the Villa prepared by the resident cook, Ruwan. He will listen to your requests, offer suggestions but most of all, he really wants you to enjoy what he prepares for you and that shines through based on the pride that he takes in preparing the meals. He is of course assisted by Sanjeeva, resident handyman, transport manager and jack of all trades. We should not leave out the other 2 members of the staff that helped also, the night watchman and the cleaner.

Thank you Christian and Pip for allowing us to enjoy a fantastic week at your little slice of Paradise. We can't wait to get back there.
