“AMAZING Villa in Unawatuna!!”

person found this review helpful

We stayed for 3 nights and it was absolutely fantastic! Beautiful villa in a lovely location, about a 5-10 minute walk to the beach with very comfortable and well designed rooms including amenities such as te and coffee, shampoo and shower gel, hair dryer, towels and more. Each room has an en-suite bathroom and a great view of Unawatuna beach. Perched on a hill, the villa is secluded in between lots of trees giving that sense of privacy. The infinity pool (which is very clean) and garden is an awesome place to relax, sip cocktails and get some sun..I would like to give a special mention to Upal, his wife and the rest of the team (caretakers of the villa) for making us feel at home and providing us with delicious home made food and everything else we needed! We will surely be back again and highly recommend the Far Horizons Villa to everyone.

“Incredible”
Reviewed September 11, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We had the most amazing and luxurious stay in this beautiful villa. The rooms and beds were so clean and comfortable, and the pool and view just breathtaking! The best place we stayed in Sri Lanka without a doubt! It was very difficult to leave and I am certainly planning to go back one day, perhaps with our family or a group of friends.

“Perfect holiday”
Reviewed September 5, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Our stay at Far Horizons was flawless. The villa is stunning and every little detail has been thought of. Upul and Piumi were the stars - there was no request too big and they took such great care of our family ranging in age from 6 to 76 years, and made each person feel special. Upul's cooking, as other reviewers mentioned, was much better than any restaurant in the area. This was our best holiday to date, and our sincere gratitude to the whole Far Horizons team for making it that way.

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?
How easy was key pickup/access to the property?

“Far Horizons”
Reviewed July 28, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We visited Far Horizons with our friends the Hillmans whom we met 10 years ago in Oman. The villa was booked by our friends and we did not really know what to expect as we had only see pictures . We stayed for 12 nights and felt that the Villa and Garden / Pool area and all very well looked after and laid out very well . The view from the pool is breath taking and we enjoyed many days lazing around the pool.

The staff who looked after us were really fantastic and organised , food , shopping , tuk tuk rides , a safari day out and looked after us within the villa.

Overall condition of the property Bedding & mattresses

“Simply the best!”
Reviewed July 6, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We have spent 4 nights at Far Horizons Villa and sadly leave in a couple of hours. We have loved every minute of our stay, and this villa and the hospitality of Upul and Piumi needs to be experienced to be believed. Spotlessly clean, modern, spacious, beautiful decor, amazing food, incredible pool with views you never tire of - nothing has been missed. Upul and Piumi are an amazing team. Nothing has been too much trouble for them and we will miss them a lot. The only upside to leaving is that we know we will be back! Thank you Upul and Piumi!

“I could only give the villa the highest recommendation”
Reviewed May 26, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We absolutely had a splendid time at Far Horizons. The villa is up on the hill and faces to the bay. Your mood will be definitely up lifted when seeing the ocean and sunshine every morning. All the rooms are well decorated and can see the great view of the bay. The manager Upurl and other people are very kind and helpful. If you stay there, do not forget to have Upurl make you a dinner B.B.Q cause you will not regret it. It is a wonderful experience to stay in the villa and have a family time, and I recommend the place to anyone who plan to visit Galle.

“Best place we stayed in sri lanka!”

We are a family of 11 and spent a wonderful 6 days at far horizons villa. Having spent 2weeks travelling around sri lanka we ended our holiday at far horizons and we were so pleased with everything on offer!

Upul and piomi were fantastic and did everything they could to make our stay as brilliant as possible - they were kind, friendly and accomodating. And their sri lankan curry was yummy! What more could we want!

Lesley and Ken, the owners, were great at communicating with us before, during and after - they helped us with booking a driver back to negombo and also with some helpful suggestions on their guest flyers on things to do in the local area.

The location of the villa is amazing.. the photos really don't do it justice - it is a little slice of paradise...watching the sun go down from the infinity pool on several evenings was an absolute delight - the views really are stunning.

The villa itself was very clean, tidy and modern - everything you need to enjoy your holiday. And the pool was perfect for children and adults alike...and pool volleyball!

Overall I would highly recommend far horizons. Its close enough to experience beach life, but far enough from unawatuna to be in your own oasis! And the welcome you receive is true sri lankan hospitality at its best! Book now!
