This place was a good stay and had nice ambience, we enjoyed the food very much and the company of some of the. Other guests here. We Really en joyed the luscious green gardens surrounding the hotel made it feel even more relaxed.

Stayed here for three night in April 2014. Accommodation is only 2 or 3 minutes walking from the beach and many of the restaurants. We had an a/c room inside the villa which was very clean and nicely decorated. The villa itself is well-designed and well-kept. The rooms are only separated by one window / door from the 'living-room' of the villa, that is the only negative point. Breakfast was not included in the price but the (Sri Lankan) breakfast was really good and worth the money. Price of the room in general was very reasonable.

Dirty dark old room, way overpriced. staff looking to increase room price to make personal profit.Pictures or completely misleading. This hotel is Inland NOT facing the sea. Staff terable, food horrable, rooms dirty expired with European prices in this dive. completely unacceptable. If you wish to be ripped off then the Danish Villa, is for you. Its not a Villa, its a room within a messy complex building. badly located and very misleading by the photos and unexceptionably dark, dirty and dingy and overpriced with pure and utter greed.

Room Tip: much cheaper places, with proper standard. stay away from Rupa`s also, as this place is the worst pl...

Fantastic two weeks in the Villa. Sulfi, Tahir and the two lads were brilliant in welcoming guests to the Villa and couldn't do enough to help me during my stay. They were attentive without being overbearing and were always keen to please. Sulfi was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about Arugam and is the man to see if you want to plan any excursions during your stay.

The beach is just a short walk and the breakfast was superb and excellent value. Danish Villa is the ideal tranquil retreat in what can be a hectic main street in Arugam.

Room Tip: Stayed in the 'budget' room which was perfectly acceptable but didn't have AC - all othe...

We spent two weeks in Danish Villa and we loved it. Tahir who works there during the days is the good soul of the place and makes your stay perfect. We felt so comfortable that it almost felt like home. He and his team take care of everything you need. The night guard sulfi truly is the king of arugam. If you need any help ask him and he will take care of it (tours, transportation, help in arugam bay etc.).

We stayed at the Danish Villa for 4 nights, its a nice villa with colonial feel. The rooms were comfortable and clean, however due to the lay out we felt like we were staying in a shared dorm. All the rooms open out onto the colonial living area which from 9.30pm was occupied by the night staff watching cricket and sleeping on the sofa. Poor nights sleep due to being able to hear the night watchman coughing all night, on his phone, the local mosque call to prayer at 4.55am and then inconsiderate staff talking loudly and clattering about from 7.30am.

We were looking forward to hot showers and a/c after a day on the beach, however, the a/c is turned off daily between 6.30pm and 9.30pm and the shower only gives out cold water disappointing considering the price.

During our stay we had a whole day with no power and were surprised that the Danish Villa did not have a generator or if they did, they chose not to put it on, except when guests asked for paid breakfast and then it came on briefly.

Room Tip: Maybe the newly built bungalow would be a quieter option
