Veejay, Imagine Villa chef, has his fishermen contacts for the freshest catch every day. Marnix walks about and presents the dinner menue to all guests. It's a cozy place with only a few rooms. A 4-course celebration of top restaurant cuisine with a Belgian flair. The tables are set up in large garden around the pool, the Indian Ocean crashes onto the shore, candles sparkle on the table. Spectacular!

Imagine Villa is a new top retreat in Mirissa. The owner designed it himself and gives a lot of way to tropical design in modern villas today with an spacious feeling, a lofty feeling. The ceilings a very high and provide good air circulation in this beautiful location. The staff is neatly dressed with different colours each day and look after you morning till late. No problem to provide some extra carrot sticks for our 4-year old or hand him the owner's Nutella chocolate spread which he misses so much!
Our room is on the upper floor. There is a terrace walk way all around. Colonial lounge chairs let me rest and stare over the pool to the Indian Ocean where blue whales and dolphins are at play. The room tunes in with dark solid furniture, white 300-threat count sheets and a sitting area. The space above our heads is over 5 meter to the roof. The bath room blends in with stylish sinks and faucets. The ambient light from the shower head may be a bit over the top but certainly a nice gimmick.

We really enjoyed our 5 days here and suggest Imagine Villa as a great place to stay to let your soul stroll about and enjoy fantastic food. Its location is 3 km outside Mirissa's buzzling beach and you can easily reach it by Tuk Tuk. The train station to Galle/Colombo and Matara is just 500m inland. A walk on the beach is just as great whale watching or perhaps a dive with the Padi center nearby in Weligama.

Thank you very much for your nice review.
It was a pleasure to have you here and talk together early in the morning before sunrise.
And your lovely son was a great friend of our pool boy Nilanga.
We hope to see you again when you miss the sun of Sri Lanka

By the time we booked the hotel there was hardly any reviews out there and we had no idea what it would be like. As soon as the doors to the Hotel opened we knew it was the most perfect choice we could have made! The beach is just amazing, the hotel brand new and just beautiful. The owners take really good care of all your wishes and needs. We can highly recommend this place, thanks Marnix and all the staff for the great time!

When we arrived in Sri Lanka we thought this holiday would be terrible. Our debit and credit cards were blocked and our driver wasn't at the airport. To make a long story short after one hour we arranged our own transport to the hotel and also had some cash to start with. When we arrived there all the stress of the journey vanished immediately. Our hosts, originally from Belgian and Sri Lanka, welcomed us with a glass of champagne and did make us feel at home immediately. This would not change for the rest of the week.
The villa is build in colonial style with all the comfort of today. The rooms are beautiful, spacious and clean. Especially the bathroom!
The villa has nice public areas for sitting an dreading and a small bar. The pool area is great, with plenty of loungers and also other places to sit the gardens. From the garden you can walk directly to the beach. Which gives you a really bounty Island feeling. You never want to leaf this oasis of calm.
That's not only because of the villa but also because of the food. It's lovely.Everyday we looked forward to what the menu would bring! They were perfect hosts because without asking they started to make some adjustments to the menu specially for our daughter. Eating is outside with a wonderful view over the garden and the ocean.
Our hosts where never tired to answer our may questions about Sri Lanka and help us with our daytrips. So in short it was a perfect holiday!

After traveling around Sri Lanka on a honeymoon for two weeks, me and my husband Simon stayed at Imagine villa for 4 nights and it was just lovely. Thank you so much Marnix - and all of you - for the champagne upon our arrival. We had a lovely room, lovely food (best Sri Lankan food ever) and the breakfast was just lovely with all that tropical fruit. The staff were just fantastic. Everything was more than you can expect I would highly recommend this place. If you are after peaceful tropical place, top quality on service, room and food, this is the place.

Room Tip: Ask for the Honeymoon Suite, just lovely with its veranda.

We stayed at the Imagine Villa Hotel for 5 nights around New Year. It was a very pleasant experience. The rooms are nicely designed and practical, the view is superb, both the owners and the staff extremely helpfull and friendly. The very best part though is the cuisine that is served at night. Everyday a set menu is proposed and the food and its presentation rate at the highest standards. We learned that one of the owners has been trained at a top ranking cooking school in Bruges, Flanders and has been working as a cook for the Marriot hotel in Ghent. This was tropical relaxation at it’s very best, thanks!
