“Better than the pictures on the Internet”
Reviewed February 18, 2017 for a stay in November 2016

From the moment we arrived we were welcomed with open arms. The house is beautiful, the staff are amazing, the view and location is breath-taking. We were a party of 6 guests from various countries staying for my husbands surprise 50th celebration. It was all perfect, the food was divine throughout the stay, and the staff went the extra mile to organize fireworks on the beach, cakes and seafood for the birthday . Amazing sunsets, pool , beach all 10/10. We will highly recommend.

“All you could want from a family holiday”
Reviewed February 16, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

Villa Riina really does provide everything you could want from a family holiday.
Two families shared the villa - four adults and four children and there was plenty of room.
Being right on the beach and having the pool meant there was always plenty to do and keep the kids active.
There are lots of interesting but short day trips to do for those that want to leave the villa. We stayed 9 nights and really wished it had been longer!
The local town is bustling but not full of tourists - which we liked.
The villa is beautiful and the beach stunning - again not over run with tourists and still used by locals - walking their dogs or playing a daily game of soccer/volley ball.
And the staff - made us feel at home and welcome. The meals were delicious and catered for both adults and children.
I didn't believe you could have such a relaxing break with small children but Villa Riina made it possible!

“A fantastic Holiday Home”
Reviewed October 25, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We stayed at Villa Riina for six nights as a family. (Or children, their partners and our grandchildren) We had an amazing holiday here. The rooms are spacious and the staff look after you so well. We loved the Sri Lankan dishes!

Situated right on the beach, a pool to enjoy and spacious rooms all with en-suites make this place holiday luxury.

The staff took care of our every need from arranging drivers / tuk tuks, cooking meals and providing local advice.

You can walk to the town of Ambalangoda if you need exercise (via the beach or along the road) but tuk tuks are a very cheap option

“Truly spoilt ”

We stayed here with friends (another family) and had the most amazing time. The villa is beautiful with 4 bedrooms, all with bathrooms . The main two are virtually identical with a stunning views from the balcony.
Everything is kept immaculately clean and there are staff there all the time. The staff really look after you and never felt intrusive. They cooked all meals for us, which were absolutely delicious, probably the best we had in Sri Lanka and as you only pay for ingredients, very reasonable. As a mum of three, It was a real luxury to be waited on and not to have to do the clearing up.
The location on the beach is stunning and although the sea rough in August, the kids enjoyed paddling in the surf. The pool was kept very clean and they had lots of fun in that too.
The beach is very quiet, we saw hardly anyone on it but the kids played cricket and football a couple of evenings with some local children which they enjoyed.
It cost 100 rupees to get a tuk tuk into ambalangoda and from here we got the train to galle and bus to hikkaduwa which were fun experiences though you could get a tuk tuk all the way - Sandie will help you arrange transport. Whilst here we also visited a turtle hatchery up the road and got a tuk tuk to the tsunami photo museum which was very humbling and moving.
Thanks again Sandie and team for looking after us so well.

“The best place for families with kids!”

We have had the best holiday ever in this beautiful villa. The friendly and service minded staff made us feel at home from the first dag to the last, thank you for being so nice to us and our sometimes annoying children. The staff helped us with the best shopping, day trips and other lovely experiences like local dances, nature and massages. The kids will send a special thanks for the tasty food and special the pancakes! We will miss you all and will defiantly be back!
