“Far Horizons Villa: The place to stay in Unawatuna”
Reviewed November 27, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Comfortable and relax villa overlooking the Indian Ocean with an infinity pool. Awesome bbq by Upul and Pumi. Suitable for a company of 7 or more. Comfortable and definitely worth visiting again!

“An amazing villa with great staff”

We were staying with a group of friends at the villa and rented the whole place for 10 days.

What can I say, we had a amazing time. I can warmly recommend this accomodation.

The building itself is quite new and in perfect condition. Everything is very clean and tidy, the bedrooms, bathrooms, the common places especially the terrace, garden and the pool, which is maintained by the very friendly gardner. (Everything as nice as in the pictures)
One thing to think about if you plan on sharing rooms with friends, the rooms are all ensuite but some do not have a bathroom door.
The view over the infinity pool and the Unawatuna beach is quite something, yet at the same time you can walk down to the beach in less than 15 min or be lazy and take a tuk tuk.

Before our trip the two owners Lesley and Ken were helpful with organizing transfers from the airport and open for any questions.
During our stay we were perfectly taken care of by the very kind and friendly on site staff Upul and his wife Piumi.
They were there for us at all times, were great cooks and in general organized anything that we needed or wanted (shopping, trips, laundry, and recommendations for restaurants, spas or anything else in Unawatuna). Upul speaks perfect english and we had a really good time with him and his wife.

We can definitely recommend this villa. The building, the surrounding, the location and of course the staff were all pretty much perfect.
We will surely come back again some other time...

Exactly as described which is very refreshing. The photographs look great but the reality is even better. This villa has a wonderful minimalist look but manages to remain super comfortable and elegant. The approach road is an interesting experience but the drivers are very adept at negotiating the hazards. The cooking of Upal and Pumi is not to be missed,they cater for all tastes. The pool is a beautiful place to relax in after a days sightseeing and we were lucky enough to witness a large group of monkeys crossing the trees next to the pool whilst we were in it one afternoon. My wife and I stayed with our Sri Lankan family who enjoyed the experience as much as we did. Safe, secure and breathtaking. What more could you want from a holiday retreat. I am already being asked if I am booking it again for next year by my family. Thank you very much Lesley and Ken for adding to our annual trip.

“AMAZING Villa in Unawatuna!!”
Reviewed September 13, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

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.

“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.
