What an amazing, peaceful, relaxing 4 days we have had here at beautiful Villa Nilaya. Nothing was too much trouble for Prabath and Ayesh. Prabath’s home cooked food surpassed anything else we had eaten in Sri Lanka prior to arriving at Nilaya. We will definitely return!

“5 stars is not enough! This place with its wonderful staff was amazing. ”
Reviewed February 6, 2018 for a stay in February 2018

I would award Villa Nilaya even more more stars. This is the most amazing place - direct beachfront location, fabulous pool and garden area. Parbath’s delicious cooking and all the other things he does to help his guests in every way. These were endless. Ayesh’s attention to detail shows in the cleanliness of the beautiful rooms. Always fresh and inviting. We had a wonderful time at the Villa as we and our family were looked after so well and all with a huge smile. Nothing was ever too much trouble. We love this place and We will definitely be back!

Dream place! Absolutely the best destination to stay in Sri Lanka. You can feel yourself like a princess:) Villa is just so amazing. Comfortable and very clean. In villa you have personal cheff, who can make delicious dishes, he is so nice and very friendly. Also there is a person who will clean your room every day.
Villa with a nice pool includes also best beach I have ever seen in my life. AND IT IS PRIVTE. No tourist at all, so you can just relax on the beach with your friends.
And what is also good, all nice places to see and visit is very near. Like Galle and Hikkaduwa. I definitely recommend!

“A piece of heaven !”
Reviewed December 26, 2017 for a stay in December 2017

Villa Nilaya is the kind of place that you never get enough of. The luxury villa smack on the beach in habaradua Sri Lanka has the most spectacular view, staff that make it home for you the second you arrive and attention to detail that prop it right up there in the league of some of the most fabulous boutique properties you will experience around the world.
The Chef tosses meals for you from the menu and quite often even off the menu and makes sure they are tailored to your palate while still retaining their authentic Sri Lankan taste.
The villa is only 30 minutes away from Galle Fort, one of the most charming spots in SL, marked as a heritage property with vibrant restaurants that stand where the Dutch Hospital once was and abundant spices and spa goodies that are synonymous with Ceylon.
Can't wait to be back very soon.
