“Faultless villa, location and staff”
Reviewed October 30, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

It's reassuring to book a villa that is everything it advertises and more. The garden leads onto a perfect white sandy beach and the villa has been beautifully designed and super comfortable. The staff made it even better - nothing was too much trouble and the food provided by chef Rouen was outstanding. We definitely plan to return.

“Fantastic Villa”
Reviewed September 28, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Lovely villa in a great location. Upon arrival, we were warmly welcomed by the team of staff who gave us all cold refreshing drinks after a very long journey. Nestled among the palm trees is a fantastic pool, where I did lengths every morning. The house itself is beautiful and very clean and has been furnished to a particularly high standard. Restaurants and bars are just a short tuk tuk ride away, however I would highly recommend eating in and taking advantage of the delicious food which Ruwan cooks so well. I especially enjoyed the grilled mahi mahi with coconut rice.
Highly recommend!! We’re going again next year!!

“Beautiful house with fantastic staff”
Reviewed August 21, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We stayed for a week with our four children. The house is absolutely stunning and very well located - short tuk tuk ride to Unawatuna, Weligama, Koggala or Galle. You can also walk along the beach to the turtle hatchery. The staff are amazing - unobtrusive, but able to help book any trips, cook as many meals as you would like and take care of any laundry. My husband has serious allergies and Ruwan catered around them perfectly. He also took us to the market and gave us a cooking lesson. A relaxing end to our Sri Lanka trip and we hope to return.

“Beautiful beach-front villa with wonderful staff”
Reviewed August 16, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We had a wonderful five days at Samudra with our three boys. The house is beautifully designed and decorated, positioned right on the beach and staffed by the most excellent team. The chef constantly amazed us with his brilliant creations and the only downside is we need to do some dieting now having returned home! Would love to come back some day. Truly magical.

“Great spot for R&R”
Reviewed June 8, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

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.
Highly recommend!
