Reviewed March 20, 2013

Sri Lanka spoils you for choice if you are looking for a resort with a beach frontage. Mosvold Villa is a stand out. I recently spent a day at the Villa for lunch and dinner. With its long stretch of pristine private beach, customized service and amazing food and drinks, my experience there was nothing short of fabulous! The rooms are plush and spotless, and the bathrooms are perfectly designed for use after beach and pool time. I noticed that the staff is keen to serve the freshest seafood and you are thankful for this attention to detail when you sink your teeth in to giant juicy grilled prawns and sip crab bisque that’s full of natural flavours. The rice and curry is also excellent and I found that each dish had a creative element that made for an exciting culinary experience. I admit my favorite spot was the bar. The bartender is fantastic at catering to your taste and concocting fresh tropical juices and cocktails throughout the day. Mosvold Villa is heavenly in the evenings with the staff ensuring that the atmosphere is pleasing and peaceful. It’s the perfect place to relax and enjoy all the wonderful things that the sun, sand and beach have to offer in Sri Lanka.

Stayed a day with my family, It felt like home with every luxury close to nature, the kind of place one would like to get away and switch off from the rest of the world. The swaying coconut trees, the greenery, the soft and clean sea sand, the pole fishing in cristal clear and clean water in addition to the fully loaded ammenities of this beautifully designed villa on one of the most unique beach properties on the coast.

The bar by the pool and the variety of food cooked to perfection and tropical drinks, spacious rooms, comfy lounge area etc... simply made our stay fantastic. Definetely comming back for more.

The staff and managers of this villa we so very professional and were a of a class of their own.

Thank you guys for making our stay extra special without too much effort. Simply Amazing.

We heard about this place from a friend who visited this villa. When we arrived, we was pleasantly surprised of the well laid out villa with open spaces. All the rooms are large and well designed. Very comfortable beds and large bathrooms. All rooms were facing the amazing turquoise waters of Ahangama beach. This stretch of beach is private and has all the natural features packaged into one location. You get a good surf, its very safe to swim and an area that is ideal for snorkelling. The staff here are very friendly and provide a personalised service. Unlike in most big hotels, I had the flexibility of having my meals when I wanted to in any location within the property. My favourite moment was watching the beautiful sunset, whilst sipping a glass of wine.

Dear Guest,

I am glad to hear that you had an amazing stay at Mosvold Villa by Jetwing, and I also want to thank you for sharing your feedback and leaving us a review on Trip Advisor. As the General Manager it is very nice to hear that the entire team there looked after all your needs as I believe that the level of service can determine the difference between just an average property and something which is excellent. I am happy the team is doing their part in making it a fantastic experience for our guests.

The location of the villa means that a guest has a choice of what they would like to do to spend their days at the property. Mosvold Villa by Jetwing has a fantastic stretch of beach, there is also a surf point, and during the season it becomes the perfect location for a snorkel or swim. If you feel like a change you could also choose to take a dip in our crystal clear fresh water pool, or spend the day lounging on a beach bed while reading your favorite book while enjoying a special creation of our popular chef or even just enjoying a fresh juice. The amazing sunsets that can be seen from the villa is absolutely breath taking and is a favorite among the wide variety of guests that do come to the villa.

Thank you for your feedback once again, and I do look forward to welcoming you back to Mosvold Villa by Jetwing.

Stopped for lunch last December and had one of the best Sri Lanka meals of my life. View was stunning and the staff were great. Wish I could have stayed longer than a few hours. Will definitely go back for more!

Had the chance the stay in the Mosvold Villa one night with friends in March. We had a wonderful time at the Villa. The Staff is very attentive, the food is delicious and the beach by the villa is very suitable for swimming.
The Villa is modern and spacious, I had the feeling it was a perfect getaway for friends or families

We stumbled on this property last minute do to an unpleasant stay the night before (Talalla Retreat). This boutique hotel is truly a relaxing paradise. Each room has an ocean view with king size bed (most comfortable bed we stayed in our whole 10 days in Sri Lanka). Exceptional customer service! The chef would personalize our meals daily and each one of these dishes were beyond excellent. If we wanted a different swim than the infinite pool, the beach was literally feet away and was not populated at all. You can see pole fishermen and surfers daily from the beautiful sand beach. If you like to drink purchase beer and wine prior as there is no alcohol on the property, but there is no issue with BYOB here or they are happy to get what you want locally. This beautiful villa served as 3 days of complete relaxation for a great last minute find and our last days in Sri Lanka!

We loved our 5 day break at this lovely little villa property. After a nightmare start to our little jaunt (which included a 2.5 hour crawl through Colombo after an overnight flight from Dubai, only to be turned away from the Jetwing ERA beach hotel due to a double booking...Not ideal or relaxing with a 5 month pregnant wife) staying at this villa hotel rescued the holiday!

The entrance courtyard is a lovely little area with a fish pool and places to sit and the rooms are large and very well decorated with a modern yet rustic feel. The bathrooms have both a very large shower cubicle and a large bath and are huge. Beds are very very comfortable and you feel that little expense was spared in their choice.

The villa grounds make the place feel special with a lovely sized pool, veranda around all rooms and a lawn area between the villa and the beach. Crazy little chipmunk squirrel creatures jump from tree to tree as you take your meals al Fresco and watch the waves break on the ideallic beach less than 30 metres away.

Eating there is a very personalised experiance. On the first morning I asked "what time is breakfast served" expecting the 7 till 10 answer of most hotels, but instead was asked "when do you want it?" Your meals are served when you ask for them, and they set a table for you there and then as if you are the only people in the property. The food is excellent and they are happy to modify the dishes as you wish. The staff are attentive but not intrusive and will arrange trips for you to the local sights etc... We went Whale watching, to the turtle hatchery, to the fort at Galle and loved all of it.

A couple of minor weak points worth a quick mention are 1; Internet signal was pretty weak in our room 2; steps down to the beach stop with a 3-4 foot drop onto the sand, not the safest if you have kids or a pregnant wife (this is apparently being sorted very soon) 3; road noise - but this did not affect our sleep and is the same for all beach front hotels in the area.

Special mention must go the the Villa Manager who arranged various trips, tuc tuc rides (not for the faint hearted at night) and also a local taxi (lime green Hyundai accent driven by local lads who must have been relatives of one of the staff) and ensured we were well looked after at all points. The ad hoc style of some of the sights and services actually adds to the enjoyment of the stay as well as being very close to a working fishing village where you can see stilt fisherman working and then selling their catch next to the road.

For a luxury, chilled out, adventure filled, unique experience (yes you can have it all) choose this friendly litle place. You won't be disappointed. If only there was a closer airport not in Colombo! (aparently coming soon :-))

Room Tip: No room tips as all are similar and great. Instead: There are boogie boards that can be borrowed f...

Dear Guest,

Firstly I want to apologize for your transfer from Jetwing Era Beach to Mosvold Villa by Jetwing, but I am glad it was handled professionally be everyone involved and that you as the guests were not made to feel agitated or uncomfortable at any time.

I am glad you enjoyed your experience at Mosvold Villa by Jetwing and that you were taken care of. Mosvold Villa by Jetwing is a stunning small property and offers a guest plenty of options, whether it’s lounging under the sun and reading a book or whether you want to take a dip in the pool, or even a walk along the fantastic beach stretch this property is located on. I am also glad you took the time to engage in some sightseeing in Galle, and also go out on a whale watch which is a fantastic experience. The experience at this fantastic property in enhanced with the levels of personalized service we believe in providing guests with, dine where you choose to and pick what you want to indulge in or simply speak to the chef and he will give you a list of recommendations.

We are looking in to the step towards the beach and will be fixed very soon. The traffic is something that is going to be there due to the coastline in Sri Lanka, there is not much we can actually do at this point except make sure the rooms are as sound proof as possible considering that the occasional sound of a vehicle can only be heard in the front of the property and does not bother you towards the walk way and the back/garden area of Mosvold Villa by Jetwing. Thank you for your feedback regardless as this only helps us improve and grow and cater even better to all our guests.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review on Trip Advisor, and we hope to see you back at Mosvold Villa by Jetwing in the near future as the Mattala Airport has opened as well.

Sincerely,
Robert Claesson
General Manager
