We could not have enjoyed our stay at The Saffron House more! From the moment we arrived, to the warmest of welcomes, the staff took such good care of us and were utterly charming. They really are an exceptional team, ably headed up by Chris. We had asked for typical Sri Lankan food and were not disappointed; it was absolutely delicious.
We decided against doing any day trips as we all wanted to relax and unwind during our week there and left feeling utterly refreshed.
Amazing location between two stunning beaches, incredibly beautiful villa set in stunning gardens.
Chris and her staff looked after us brilliantly all week. Superb food and they were so friendly and kind.
The rooms are extremely comfy, huge beds with nice sheets and modern polished concrete bathrooms.
Good day trips organised by the staff too. All in all 5 star in every way.
It was a privilege to stay in this amazing villa. If you're looking for peace & tranquillity, friendly service and amazing food, Saffron House is the place to stay.
Chris and the team made our stay truly wonderful.
An excellent hub to explore the area, including whale watching, surfing, nature reserves, Galle Fort, and much more.
We would certainly stay there again. Thank you Paul, Chris and the team.
Staff are lovely and their cooking is fantastic. Owner's are a delight and very easy to deal with. Great location which is not too far from Colombo that you are tired by the time you get there. Recommend Saffron House to anyone.
Beautiful place and such a friendly welcome. We never expected it to be this lovely and it beat everywhere else we went in Sri Lanka! Can't recommend highly enough.
Everything about the Saffron House demands superlatives. From the setting to the food, the bedrooms, the decor, the gardens and the surroundings.
Thank you very much to the wonderful staff, and to Paul, for making our holiday so enjoyable. I am already looking forward to the next time we can visit!
We stayed at Saffron House for 4 days and it was the absolute highlight of our trip in Sri Lanka. We couldn't recommend it more highly, either for a couple or a larger group.
- THE HOUSE: Beautiful house and grounds, rooms are luxurious without being brash, and the pool area overlooking the ocean the perfect place to pass the day. The 'half open air' bathrooms are a great touch.
- THE FOOD: Chris and the team at Saffron prepared three wonderful meals each day for us, all home-cooked Sri Lankan style and the best we ate on our 3-week trip.
- THE PEOPLE: Chris and the team at Saffron were amazing, making us feel at home from the first minute and always making sure we had everything we needed. A real home-from-home. They also sorted our onward transport to Galle (1.5 hours in morning traffic).
- THE AREA: We spent a couple days walking into Dikwella and other beaches nearly, all within 10 - 15 minutes. All very safe, clean and beautiful. Chris and the team were able to recommend us some lovely places to go. Sunsets are amazing! We did a surf lesson one day, and you can also rent boards for 200Rs an hour.. bargain!
