“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2010

I stayed at South Point Villa for 2 days with my family and extended family. By far, it is one of the best holiday villas I have stayed in. The service, food and overall atmosphere was amazing!

The view is what really caught me off guard. I wasn't expecting to see such a beautiful sight, right in the backyard, but I did. At night, you can see the lights from the ships at sea, and hundreds of stars overhead! At sunrise...words can't even explain the beauty!!

I would, without doubt, recommend South Point Villa to anyone wanting to get away from the rush of everyday life, or to those just wanting a vacation : )

We'd only been at the Abbey a day before we were plotting our return. A hotel holiday wouldn't compare after having experienced a beach house, with tropical landscaped gardens and infinity pool at our disposal, and with the sea mere metres away. We thought we'd find having several staff, including two chefs, intrusive but Dinesh, Janaka and the gang helped make our holiday something special. Everyday the chefs served up fantastic meals with local seafood sourced from the Indian Ocean outside our door. For us, the traditional architecture of the 3-bedroom Abbey lent an exotic air. Bedrooms were quite big, each with its own sizeable ensuite and they all seemed relatively new. The combination off all these factors plus the location (about 30 minutes drive to Galle) and sea views give the Abbey two big thumbs up from us.

We had a family trip (children aged 11, 8 and 7) to Sri Lanka and spent our final days at South Point Villa. On our arrival there, we immediately felt at home. The staff were fabulous anticipating our every whim , the chef provided us with the best food that we had eaten in the whole of Sri Lanka and and everything was done effortlessly (or so it seemed to us!). The rooms were spotless and bathrooms enormous with a good supply of hot water (not something we found elsewhere on our trip). The living area is also great, although most of our time was spent on the terrace, in the pool or on the beach. My kids loved playing with Lisa (the dog which does not have to be part of the house if you are not dog-friendly) and the rabbits which roamed freely in the garden, whilst my husband and I relaxed without a care in the world.
There is nothing to do in the area immediately round the villa - apart from stroll on the beach and watch the fishermen at work - but Galle is a 20 min drive away. That said, once we were at the villa, we were more than happy to stay put (and would have stayed longer had it not been for our flights home!)
South Point provides pure luxury in a wonderful environment. It is the perfect place to unwind, forget about the outside world and be rejuvenated.
We will be going back to South Point for another trip soon and Iwould recommend it to everyone.

We had a fantastic 5 days at Southpoint Abbey (sister proporty to the villa) in August 2009. Beautiful location on the beach and a fantasically equipped villa. 3 bedrooms with large 4 posters and en-suite bathroom in each, and all air conditioned. Very attentive staff including excellent chef who can do sri lankan or international cooking to your requirements. Tea and cake avery day at 4pm was a fantastic treat, which we still miss. We had a barbeque on the last night, which was superb....staff put candles all the way round the garden and set the dining table up outside under the stars for us. The owner also arranged for our children to be able to release a couple of baby turtles into the sea - a great memory. Good pool and very well kept gardens. 30 mins from Galle.

The decision against staying at a large 5 star resort was made as we were a family with 2 elderly grandparents and very young kids. South point abbey was a fantastic experience due to its private beach, pool and excellent staff. It was ideal for us looking to get away from the chaos that is Colombo, yet not wanting to share the facilities with 100 more as exprienced in the many luxury resorts we passed by on our way here (especially due to the anticipated crowds during the poya holidays)

With a price tag to match any 5 star luxury resort (believe me, i did my research), I would recommend the place (there is however, the occasional sound of the bus speeding by on the main road which was thankfully drowned by the sounds of the beach to some degree) and would love to experience the exclusive service provided by the wonderful staff.

Special mention goes out to the excellent food!

WOW! It is the most amazing holiday I have ever had. I visited this wonderful place with my mom and my sister. There, we had a marvelous time. It was just a 4 day stay. Oh it wasn't ofcourse 'just' a stay but definitely an unforgettable one.

Unlike a hotel, this particular place makes you feel more like your own home only with much more comforts. It is very spacious and has everything that is needed to spend a happy stress-free holiday. The food was delicious! It was one of the many things that I really enjoyed a lot. The service was also awesome! They treated us like the queens of the country. It was incredibly good.

We were mesmerized by the endless sandy beach where we could laze in the warm sunshine and acquire a golden tan.

We swam to our heart's content in the warm aquamarine shark-free waters of the calm sea and viewed the picturesque coral formations abounding with multicoloured fish.

Hence I strongly recommend it as a place that you must spend your holiday and experience those wonderful moments which would certainly be etched in your memory...
