“An experience not to be missed in a unique part of Sri Lanka”

We chose Vila Araliya as the location for our small wedding celebration. We were a group of 3 couples and 2 singles. The villa was perfect. Plenty of space, nice large bedrooms with a choice of styles, well furnished. The central pool courtyard is lovely. Very spacious lounge and dining areas. Rukmal the smiling houseman and Upasena looked after our every need and were aways to hand but not intrusive. Kamela, who took care of cooking for us, is an absolutel marvel. We had altogether 5 weeks in Sri Lanka and without doubt Kamela's food was our favourite.
Ron, the owner, was really really helpful, from the day we first enquired about the villa until we left. He and his wife very kindly allowed us to hold our wedding ceremony in the garden of the villa and it was everything we could have wished for.
You can get a real feel of local life by just stepping outside the gate! Small village nearby. Tuk tuk ride to beaches and Galle town. Easily arranged.

Villa Araliya was perfect in every way for our family of 5 adults and two children. The accommodation was stylish and comfortable with large beds in every room, a fully fitted and functional kitchen, a beautiful pool, and extensive landscaped gardens. The staff were always cheerful and willing. Rukmal our houseboy attended to everything from cleaning the rooms to the odd bit of shopping, always with a smile. Our eight day rental was everything we hoped it would be and we have very happy memories of our stay.
