Wow!!! what a great villa.
Serendipity villa is simply stunning. It's huge. Each bedroom is the size of an Amsterdam apartment, The pool is wide enough to do laps. And the best thing is the view. Perfect sunsets on Koggala lake, with hundreds of bats flying over. Monkeys and all kinds of birds visiting all day. And perfect surf beaches nearby. The team made our stay unforgettable. Himal arranged everything for us, tuktuks, trips and even a dog for our daughter to play with :-) The villa is managed by a company called Eden Villas. They also have a concierge service (Udeshika) so you don't have to worry or think about anything. Back again next year.

Amazing stay at villa Serendipity
We had a perfect stay at the luxurious and comfortable villa Serendipity. Hospitable Staff, delicious food, intricately designed bedrooms, bathrooms and living spaces in a gorgeous house sitting on the edge of a breathtaking lake. The excellent staff even climbed up the coconut trees to pluck fresh king coconuts for us to drink after a long, serene boat ride on the lake. 6 star service! The photographs of the property do not do the location or house justice! Thank you again! Best wishes, The Joshuas.

The most stunning Villa in all of Southern Sri Lanka!
We stayed at Villa Serendipity for 4 days in January 2020. Celebrated my daughter's first birthday there. We had the most amazing time thanks to the brilliant staff at the villa. Himal and his team took great care of us. The villa itself is stunning and beautifully maintained. We had planned on going and checking out many of the nearby tourist attractions but barely went out of the villa as it was so beautiful and relaxing. I didn't miss the beach at all thanks to the beautiful and serene Koggalla lake. The rooms are beautiful and spacious, but I doubt you would be spending much time in there thanks to the very comfortable living room downstairs. We spent much of our time by the pool. The best part about the villa is the Chef. Chef Asanka cooked us some delicious local food and we abandoned all our plans to go eat out as the food at home was way better than any restaurant food. Special props to Chamith, who was ever present and helpful. He served us excellent tea/coffee and always had a smile on his face. Himal the house manager made us some great cocktails! I would totally recommend this gem of a Villa to anyone who is looking for a relaxing vacation with some excellent food & stunning sunsets. I cant wait to go back again soon!

Nothing short of Extraordinary
If you're looking for a villa nearby Galle - look no more. Book it before it's unavailable! We were five couples that spent New Years Eve in the villa (5 nights in total). My first concern when booking was that it was not located on the beach. Not to worry! The location is much better. The Koggala lake scenery is much prettier and you are only a 5 minute drive from the closest beach. It felt wonderful being surrounded by the "Sri Lanka" jungle without any neighbours in eyesight. My second concern was the distance to Galle. In my opinion, there is no good reason to have a villa close to Galle. A drive to Galle is only 40 min ($10) away and we spent as much time travelling east towards Marissa and Weligama. Villa Serendipity is therefore located close to every place we wanted to experience. In additon, the staff is amazing! We could not have asked for a better house Manager in Himal. There was not a single request he couldn't help us with. The Villa chef, Asanka, served us the Sri Lankan of the highest quality. We ended up eating in more days than we had planned because his dinners were better than what any restaurant could offer (+ cheap. You only pay for the ingredients). I am still dreaming of his morning smoothies... The villa is stunning. The pictures doesn't do the place justice. The rooms are beautiful and the outdoor area is perfect for socializing. The mix of modern design and older beautiful furnitures works perfect. If I were to build my dream home, this is what it would look like! I looked at 50+ homes before we ended up with Villa Serendipity. I could not have been more happy with my selection. My only regret was that I didn't book the villa for longer. Some final tips: We ordered wine in advance. Wine is expensive in Sri Lanka (european prices) as it's imported into the country. If you would like wine I suggest to do the same. Additionally, we bought beers prior to arriving the villa. beer is cheap, but due to local rules it is difficult for the staff to buy it on your behalf. Alochol was probably the only food/beverage we acquired on our own. Living in Sri Lanka is very cheap compared to Europe, so do not hesitate spending most of your budget on a beautiful villa like Villa Serendipity. I believe we spent around USD 300 euro per person for 10 days, and that includes transportation, restaurant etc. Thanks to all the staff in the villa, and to Stephanie for attending all the details prior to our arrival. We really hope to come back in the near future! Best, Tobias

Wow experience
Highly recommend this villa. Great guys running the place. Very accommodating and very prompt with everything. We got a bit unlucky with rains on certain days but we had a pool table which kept some people busy and the villa staff booked very nice massages too which took place in the villa. Traveled with a 4 month old baby and they had a baby cot and helped in whatever we demanded.

Perfect vacation at Villa Serendipity
Our vacation in Sri Lanka and more specific our stay at Villa Serendipity was a success from beginning to end. The hospitality of the complete staff, the excellent cooking art of chef Asanka, Himal’s cocktails, the thoughtful attention for our kids, the beautiful house itself with lovely garden and stunning view ... this all made us think back with warm memories at Villa Serendipity.

What an experience!
It is difficult to start writing a review of the beautiful place as everything is worth mentioning and good. Let us start with the house: a breathtaking house that offers all necessary comfort for a group of 10. The rooms are huge, the pool is great and the decoration makes it perfect. But believe it or not, but the house is not the best thing, it is the staff. Himal and his team make sure that you enjoy your holidays and feel like a king/queen. The service and food is at the highest level possible. This combined with the great extra services of Udeshika of Eden Villas and the great transport services of Manjula made our holidays unbelievable. A big thank you to everybody at Villa Serendipity!!!
