South Point Villa

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 4, 2014

Stayed with children and grandchildren at South Point Villa (Abbey) for eleven nights during Christmas. The place is suitable for a family with small children, and with plenty of space, so that you can have privacy if needed. The staff was very friendly and professional at the same time, and they met every need we had during our stay. Also the food - especially the Sri Lankan dishes - was superb and there was plenty of it. Lots of things to do in the 'neighbourhood' and the staff are very helpful if you need any help with arrangements. Fantastic to be able to have a swim in the ocean before breakfast is served on the terrasse. Beware that although the beach is wonderful, the sea is rather rough and not suitable for smaller children, but then there is the swimmingpool. Also it might be worth noticing that there is some noise from the traffic on the main road behind the house, but we soon got used to it.
All in all a stay at South Point Abbey can be highly recommended.

Our family of 4 stayed for XMas 2013 8 days at this beautiful Villa. We have traveled in many places around the world including the obvious Four Seasons, Six Senses and other luxury places but this Villa has topped them all in terms of privacy, beach, rooms, food but especially the staff that have been amazing!
We will return and already looking forward to it.

We stayed a week at South Point Abbey in August, as a group of 6 adults and 4 children. The house is lovely, with a beautiful and quiet beach and a nice pool. The kids loved the dogs and rabbits. We all slept well with the constant noise of the sea in the background. There are a few interesting sights nearby, and Galle isn't too far away. We took a nice trip up to Kahanda Kanda for lunch. Otherwise, the whole setup was conducive to doing very little!

Sonali was extremely helpful through the booking process. Gamini is a very pleasant and efficient manager, and Shantha cooked us all the Sri Lankan delicacies we could imagine! His home-made lamprais was fantastic, and the barbecue on the last night was a really nice treat. All the house staff were helpful and considerate. They were very professional and gave us space at first, but we enjoyed getting to know them better as they relaxed a little towards the end of our stay. As the person organising the bill, I appreciated going through the food costs with Gamini each day to avoid any surprises at the end - I would suggest a similar approach is taken with the villas transport costs as well.

This a beautiful part of Sri Lanka, and a great place for a relaxing holiday, and South Point Abbey must be one of the best beachside properties around here - and certainly the best value for this size group.

We had chosen, unusually for us, to spend 9 days just lazing around and taking in the sun.

This was the perfect place - the staff were attentive but invisible, the chef was superb and the house and grounds kept beautifully. South Point Villa is well organised with ample sized bedrooms and lovely eating areas. The BBQ on our last night was beautifully staged and catered.

We were also taken on some local trips to tea plantations, lakes and Galle which were well organised and a driver was always available.

The dogs and rabbits were a welcome distraction for our kids, making it feel like much more than just a house rental.

My only slight warning is that this is not an isolated property. It has a busy road right behind it and the beach is limited and not somewhere we spent much time. The sea has a strong current, but the swimming pool counteracted this.

We thank our guest for taking the time to write a review. We are happy everyone enjoyed their stay.

Due to the rains and strong winds experienced this Nov the sea would have been rough, then it is not advisable to swim. Sometimes when there is a disturbance in the atmosphere the beach is narrowed.

The new highway which was completed up to Galle has now been extended to Matara ( deep south) and will be open by Jan 2014, this would considerably reduce traffic on the scenic coast road on which south point villa is located.

South Point Villa is situated in the centre of the property closer to the beach, Our beach villas are secluded but not isolated. Only South Point Cottage which is a lake front property is Isolated.

We have just returned from one night at South Point Abbey. Our children loved the rabbits and the dogs, and spent the entire time playing happily in the spotlessly clean and superbly designed infinity pool, or running around on the private beach. The staff were absolutely amazing - we have not experienced this level of service in Sri Lanka recently - they were on top of every request - plus meals were ready on time, presented beautifully, and all done with a smile. The property is beautifully maintained - excellent hot showers and absolutely everything, including the wi-fi worked very well. The non-Sinhala speakers in the group were able to communicate well with the staff - the chef and his team were excellent and able to prepare a huge range of different foods in the 24 hours we were there and all the food was excellent value for money. We never once felt the need to seek a meal elsewhere! Congratulations to the entire team for a job very well done. We shall definitely come again!

Room Tip: All the rooms were lovely

This is our second visit to South Point we had previously stayed at the Cottage, two years ago. (The new motorway makes a big difference in travelling time!) We arrived at South Point and it was like coming home. The staff recognised us and we immediately relaxed due to the laid back atmosphere. The Chalet is a newly refurbished bungalow right next to the school that South Point manage.

We were lucky to have the same team we had last time - Garmin the general manager, Mahesh the housekeeper, and Shantha the chef.

Every day we had Garmin visit to ask our requirements for our day, including meals - breakfast and evening meal. We love Sri Lankan food so were happy to leave all food to Shantha. He is a brilliant cook and we left the evening menu to him as he never disappointed. The care and skill he used on every dish shone through. We also had a cooking lesson which was so much fun!

As this was our 4th trip to Sri Lanka, we did less tours, and did things on our own. Garmin was always present for advice - really helpful with average tuk tuk prices.(another tip - if you have the average price make sure you have the change as well)

Mahesh made sure that we had everything we needed, and we enjoyed our "guess what juice this is" game every breakfast.

During the holiday we celebrated a 50th birthday and we both enjoyed the surprises that were made. I don't want to write here to spoil the surprise for anyone else!

We asked for an elephant to come to the villa for the birthday,and although expensive, it was worth it, and I was happy that every care was taken to ensure the welfare of the elephant at all times which was my main concern. We were able to feed water and shower the elephant as well as ride her.

It was the kind of trip where you feel time goes slow.

We also appreciated the complimentary foot massage on our first day - most welcome and thoughtful. I also had massages at the villa throughout the holiday which helped the relaxation.

Thank you again to all the staff, because they make the holiday what it is. I cannot fault our two week break at all. The last night was memorable thanks to the fab team.

If anyone has any questions please email me via TA and I would be happy to respond.
