“Unparalleled Luxury - one of the most beautiful villas in the world!!”
Reviewed February 26, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

It was amazing, from the moment we arrived to the moment we left (even though we didn't want to leave!) The team were all superb especially Roshan and Manju - they looked after us so well. The food was out of this world.

We fell completely in love with Sri Lanka, what a wonderful country! - everyone is so friendly...

Hats off to the owners - the Villa is outstanding, they have done an amazing job - the interiors are exquisite - every little detail thought about - and they clearly have a very tasteful eye for interior design! everything was just perfect.

I have been to some of the worlds best resorts, but this is right up there... its probably best described as a 'Private Villa Hotel' - all the luxuries of a 5 star resort (including water slide!) and the very attentive staff - in the privacy of your own beachfront villa. We had everything from Spa treatments to beach BBQ's and even our own private fireworks display - an unbelievable holiday - will definitely be returning!

We have created some memories that will live with us forever - Meda Gedara will always have a fond place in our hearts... the children smiled not stop all week - thankyou so much!

Dear Simon
Thank you for your kind review.
Meda Gedara really is as you say...."outstanding"...and we are all so glad that you were able to enjoy such a fun holiday. Interesting you suggest it is a 'Private Villa Hotel' as one of the most discerning promoters of luxury hotels 'Mr and Mrs Smith' have recently launched it on their www. You might need to book early to come next year! Hope you can make it.
Best regards
Jack

“Pure blissful luxury”
Reviewed January 7, 2018 for a stay in December 2017

From the moment we arrived with our whole family to the welcome of the smiling staff waiting in the drive armed with cool drinks and cool towels, we knew we were in for a fantastic holiday in this dream of a place. We visited one wildlife park and the old town of Galle and a tea plantation, but we really did not need to go out of the villa and its grounds. Set in a beautiful garden, the two swimming pools caused our five grandchildren (and everyone else too) endless fun, particularly the water slide. Roshan, the chef and manager, could not have been more attentive to our needs, as well as joining in with all our games and fun. A perfect place for a perfect family holiday.

So glad everyone enjoyed the slide and the pools and that Roshan ensured you were looked after with natural SL hospitality.
Please come back soon.

“Absolutely recommended, top notch, unadulterated bliss”
Reviewed August 31, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

I am unsure how or which superlatives to shower on this Shangri La, nestled away from the road, there is little on the approach to belie what a delightful paradise awaits behind the gates of Villa Meda Gedara. The situation is breath-taking; staff bearing huge smiles, cold towels and drinks, welcomed us into this palatial villa. The beautiful terrace leading down to one of two or three pools, depending on how one looks at it. A spacious Yoga Shala sits with a commanding view of the Indian Ocean amongst the leafy foliage. It pretty much has it all, a stunning beach to walk on, especially when others are torturing themselves with Yoga sessions. Supremely attentive staff led by the head chef/manager Roshan, he can do anything, a bit like a wizard really. The cuisine was divine, the local curries and dishes were superb, again Roshan and his team bowled us over with his rich and delightful repertoire. There really was something for everyone and I fear my waist proves it.
The surrounding area is charming, tuk-tuk rides to beaches and towns, for trips further afield we enjoyed the “Golden Lounge”, a mini bus with palatial trim and blast freezer air conditioning just when it was needed. All very well but I think all I really wanted was to get back to the delights of Meda Gedara and those wonderful staff.
The bedrooms are luxurious with beds to loose your partner in, and sleep comes fast with the sound of the ocean in the background. Water slides at night into pools twinkling with lights is a must, I’ve never laughed so much in my life.
Absolutely recommended, top notch, unadulterated bliss.

Dear Captain Chasby
Thank you for this review, the time it has taken you to write it, and for your kind words. We are so pleased that you were able to enjoy all aspects of the villa and the local area. Whilst leaving the comfort, style and service at the villa is difficult, there is lots within day-trip access to see and do and I'm really glad you were able to experience some of it.
So happy also that our Chef Roshan continues to delight....even as I write this he is seeking to perfect new dishes and so the next time you come, as for certain there is justice in the world, he will have a completely new menu to tickle your tastebuds.
Thank you again for your kind review.
Regards
Jack

“One of the most beautiful villas on earth - amazing property and star. Highly recommended.”
Reviewed August 20, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We are always a little nervous when booking something unknown in a country that we have never been to before especially with 4 young children. Upon arriving at the villa, everything from the property to the staff blew us away. Each member of staff, headed up by head chef Roshan, was excellent in the way they cared for our family. The villa is brand new, and each of the rooms is designed for families in mind as the British owners also have young children and that was comforting for my husband and me to know. There are 7-bedrooms with 6-bedrooms upstairs enough to sleep 2 - 3 families or 4 couples plus two children's rooms comfortably plus an outhouse for the 5th couple by the pool who might want to escape. The villa sits on the beach, and the black and red sand just on the beach is unique giving it a raw and wild feeling - perfect for family walks. The beaches are not yet developed so you feel like you can really explore. The staff were attentive, kind and amazing also with the children who were very patient and Roshan's cooking was out of this world. My husband being Italian highly rates Roshan's Italian food (highly recommend his pesto pasta and spaghetti with fresh tomato sauce) and we also loved his Sri Lankan cuisine. Roshan and his team were amazingly accommodating to any needs, and very knowledgable to organise anything along with the Eden Villas management team. We really feel that we could relax and be taken care of. The interiors of the property are beautiful with a blend of east meets west. There are two pools; a main pool with a gradual gradient for younger children, and a pool with the best slide - our children were on it for hours. We can't wait to book this villa again!

“A stunning home on the South Coast of Sri Lanka”
Reviewed July 27, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

This new property feels like it's been here for years such is the care and attention to detail. Impeccable taste is at play, from the materials used to the crisp linen and artwork on display. A home from home is a cliche used once to often but at Meda Gedara it actually felt like we were staying at a friends house such was the easy going vibe. This is due in no small part to Roshan the Chef and Manager and his fantastic team. Roshan crafted dish after dish of 5-star food and I don't think I ever heard him use the word 'no' as any request or suggestion was met with his beaming smile and just magically happened. We spent 3 days with friends and their children who literally spent all day on the superb water slide and pool. Kids TV room is also a plus with adults being able to retire to the home theatre room, but you'll probably find yourself enjoying long alfresco dinners. Any downsides? Not that I can think of, could maybe do with a couple more wine coolers :) And on the wine front, do order your wine to be delivered before you arrive as there is nothing of note locally. We've stayed in quite a few villas on the South Coast and this tops the lot. We shall gladly return.

Dear Stephen
Many thanks for taking the time to write this review and for your kind words. The owners took great care in selecting artwork and furniture and I am so glad that is shows so easily and that you liked it all. Thanks also for your words re the team, led by Roshan. With the wine we can arrange a 'welcome basket' to be cooling for an arrival so next time...and I hope there is a next time soon...we will ensure that this happens.
In the meantime many thanks you for staying with us.
Best regards
