“Beyond Excellent”
Reviewed July 28, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The photographs and description do not begin to do justice to this fantastic villa. The living space, bedrooms, bathrooms, courtyard, veranda and pool are all exquisitely laid out, generous and beautifully interior designed. The house is an absolute delight. Full of antique features integrated into an elegant new build, with lovely touches, stylish decoration throughout, and artistic displays of fresh tropical flowers. The four poster beds have comfortable thick mattresses and linen sheets. The bathrooms have open roofs over the showers, so when it rains you can literally enjoy a genuine tropical rain shower. But it is the management of the villa by Mr Bandara, the wonderful chef, the house-keeper, gardeners, security man that makes this place so special. You could not meet a kinder, nicer more dedicated team. The whole garden which is visited by wild peacocks and the occasional monkey is raked every morning, with every leaf collected, and the pool cleaned. Then there's the food. Which is superb, beyond what you might expect even at a French owned villa - there's a menu of ideas you can chose from at very reasonable prices - I think our food bill worked out at a bit less that £20 per person per day for breakfast lunch and dinner. We enjoyed a great cookery demo. This is real luxury, the discrete with excellent service, an enormous pool and beautiful garden. Staying at Sepalika is an absolute treat, and highly recommended. To go to Galle takes about 15 minutes in a tuktuk, costing approx Rs1000. Various beaches are a short drive down the road. There are interesting temples nearby. The Villa itself is up a short track close to the Ginigala junction which tuktuk drivers and locals seem to know how to find. One word of warning - we taught Bandara how to play racing demon but by the fifth game he was beating all of us.
