Lakeview villa ia by far the best place to spend a vacation in Srilanka. Its location is breathtaking and accessible to an amazing view. The best part of our stay was meeting Sonali and Lathanta. The most helpful, generous and genuine people i have met. Sonali's food is sooo good and lathanta's bbq was delicious. 2 things that could be...

Management response:

Thank you for the lovely review and we are really happy that you enjoyed the villa and food. Sorry about the lighting- 3 of the pool lights failed at the same time, and the floodlight in the Kithul tree also stopped working after only a couple of months. These have now been replaced. Unfortunately, there is little we can do...

Lakeview is a very special place to stay. From the moment of booking communications with Lesley were excellent and very helpful answering all our questions including the important matters of tonic water and lemons! Our transfer from Colombo airport organised by Prageeth, the villa travel manger, was very smooth and comfortable. Arrival at the villa up a very narrow green...

We have spent time in villas in many parts of the world, and Lakeview was equal to all of them . Why? Well it could have been the spacious accommodation , the simple but natural gardens with purple faced monkeys swinging in the trees, the infinity pool shared by the local kingfisher, the coconuts collected for us by the gardener...

About the neighborhood
The area provides plenty to do, whatever the length of your stay. Take a boat trip on the lake, or visit the numerous beaches, where you can enjoy swimming, surfing, snorkelling, diving, watersports, etc. Within 10- 40 minutes from the villa you can go whalewatching, do yoga, a canoe or cycling tour, visit Galle Fort, Koggala Lake, spice gardens, temples, tea plantation, turtle hatchery, get close up with elephants, etc. Further afield are the national parks at Yala, Udawalawe, Sinharaja and many more, but if all that sounds too strenuous, just curl up in a hammock with a book, have a massage or watch the wildlife from the balcony. .
Getting around
Transport, either by tuk tuk or minivan, is easily arranged on request. Please note that access to the property is via a narrow, unmade road/ track with cinnamon plantations on each side. A long, narrow 12 seater minivan can get up the track, but nothing larger. In the event of any problems we will bring guests and luggage the final part of the journey by tuktuk.
Car not needed
