“Amazing, beautiful Sri Lanka, luxurious, beautiful villa, wonderful friendly staff!”
Reviewed October 5, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Firstly this villa is beautiful, very tastefully furnished and luxuriously comfortable. Kingsley and the boys looked after our every need and couldn't have been more gracious and helpful. The food was to die for! Both traditional Sri Lankan or more western if required, it was absolutely top notch. The lovely pool provided a welcome respite from the heat and the fantastic beach was literally yards from the front gate, complete with nearby turtle sanctuary. A word of warning though - the sea can be very rough with a strong undertow.
The local town is totally authentic and non-touristy and was a fascinating introduction to real-life Sri Lanka - a big culture shock at first but in a good way! We went down to the harbour and chatted to the fishermen, browsed in the fish market, dodged between the tuk-tuks - a feast for the senses.
A little further away are the slightly more touristy beach resorts and the beautiful town of Galle, all well worth exploring, with great food and drink.
We took a few days away to see more of the island, arranged with the help and guidance of our hosts, which was very worthwhile, too much to go into her - amazing temples, wildlife, tea plantations and spectacular scenery. A must is a visit to the Tsunami Museum and memorials - very humbling.
I could go on and on... this villa is perfect whether you want to use it as a base for exploring the wider island or simply as a luxurious retreat, we absolutely loved it there.
