We had a wonderful relaxing 4 days at Samudra House at the end of our trip to Sri Lanka. It's right on the beach, but the water was too rough for swimming, so we spent most of our time in the pool, which was huge for three of us. The villa has two bedrooms which can sleep anywhere from 3 to 6 people. There's plenty of space. A night watchman keeps us save at night. In the day, it's staffed by three - a laundry lady, a handyman and Ruwan the butler/chef. He cooked some amazing meals for us - chili crab, grilled garlic prawns, avocado salad, grilled chicken, curry and my son's favourite spaghetti carbonara. Not forgetting hoppers for breakfast! Just tell him what you want, and he'll do the shopping and cooking.
When you get tired of lazing around the house, Galle Fort is a half hour drive away. If you need essentials, there's a Food City 10 minutes walk away.
This is possibly the most beautiful place we have stayed in!
Stunning property, deserted desert island feel beach, amazing staff.
We loved everything especially the staff cooking and waiting on us all day,if needed, at no extra cost. This was not known to us until we got there!!
Paradise in Sri Lanka, thank you all at Sumudra xx
Stunning beach house , brilliantly looked after by fantastic staff, great location, and the perfect last five days in beautiful Sri Lanka..... Ruwans cooking was exceptional and we loved every minute of our stay and we dreaded returning to the real world.
We loved the villa! It's a beautiful property and the location is great. The staff is wonderful. We will definitely come back!
We had the pleasure of spending 4 nights and glorious perfect days at this villa near Galle.
It was so good we didn't even go to Galle forte , and only ate one meal out at another so called fabulous restaurant but found it couldn't even half compare to the meals our wonderful chef cooked at Samudra.
Divine staff, smiling, always "present" in a service ,orientated non intrusive way and amazing amazing chef.
We've stayed in some incredible hotels and properties and Samudra is right at the top.
We stayed as a family with our 3 children aged 13,17 and 18 yrs- the best family holiday
Yoga each moring by tuk tuk at a fabulous local studio,and once in the villa. Massages in the villa and at a local ayruvedic one within walking distance. My boys went surfing with a local instructor and lots of eating and relaxing!
We just wanted to say a huge thank you for allowing us to experience the wonderful Samudra Villa .
We had the most amazing Christmas and New Year .
The villa is stunning very well designed and comfortable. Added to this were the staff Ruwan, Sanjeeva and Murin were exceptional. Always willing to help and equally discreet . Ruwans food was delicious particularly his dahl and fish curry .. you really do have the "A Team" .
A special place with fond memories of an amazing holiday in Sri Lanka .
We look forward to returning
Best wishes and Happy New Year
Second time I visit Samudra because the first time was not enough. Visited Samudra dec 2015 and came back dec 2016. Everything is amazing the villa is so cozy and clean. Ruwan cooks the best meals ever we only ate out for one meal in 9 days!! Sanjeeva is great too always helping out when needed. We felt very safe with the security who stayed all night. The location is perfect close to everything in the south. I can't wait to come back this place has a special place in our hearts. Thanks for this experience. From the 6 girls from DXB :)
