After an extremely long and hot journey from Kandy we arrived at Ridee Villa to be met both by Sumith and Vasana (the owners) with a delicious fresh pineapple drink and cold, wet flannels - both so refreshing. We were escorted up to our gorgeous room personally by Vasana. Beautiful fresh flowers floating in the filled bath and candles lit, cold beers in the fridge (complimentary in the VIP room) - what a treat! Vasana made us the most glorious Sri Lankan supper the following night (complimentary again, if you stay in a VIP room) which was some of the tastiest we had had during our week on the island. Both Sumith and Vasana were so attentive during our 3 night stay and were a wealth of information. They are a charming couple willing to please at every turn. Vasana directed me where to buy saree's in Galle although I haven't had the courage to wear them yet, but I will! The Villa is situated only a 2 minute walk from the beach, away from the slightly ramshackle accommodation on the beachfront. The beach itself is lovely with a stunning outlook to the Indian Ocean. You are handed a beach towel and chilled water each day before you head out from the Villa. Attention to detail in the Villa was obvious from the tasteful decoration of the rooms to the spacious areas for relaxing with a superb variety of books and magazines to read. Definitely a place to be recommended. We hope to return very soon.
