Simply wonderful!
We stayed at South Point Cottage on the shore of the lagoon for a week in October. The house is beautiful. Simple, comfortable and very cool. The setting is idyllic. An amazing view over the water and lovely sunsets. The staff were great. Nishantha and his trainee Ruan looked after everything, transport, IT and a constant flow of coffee and beer! Friendly, charming, efficient and professional. And Asha, the chef, was enchanting and creative. The food was superb. The locality is a bit sparse, but we were there during off-season, so maybe it gets a bit more lively. But there’s plenty to do in reach of a tuk tuk. Would not hesitate to recommend. We loved it!

Wow, what is there to say!
This place was wayy better than we expected. Tucked away in the back in a private quiet location. This is such a perfect place for a couple getaway and even better for the whole family to relax. The pool is so chill overlooking the lake and has a lot of tree coverage so doesn't get too hot. The lake water is fed by the ocean so it's mixed with fresh and salt water. So very clean, there's coconut trees everywhere and in the evening watching the sun set on the dock is breathtaking. The staff is available all day and extremely friendly and will help you out with anything you need. Honestly. the only negative thing I can say is how much it sucks that we were only here for 2 days and not more. We went on a boat ride to a cinnamon island in the evening that was so cool seeing how they strip the bark and afterwards to come back and relax, instead of a tuk tuk you come back and just dock in your own backyard. Such a wonderful place and would come back anytime passing through again.

Beatiful lake-side retreat
We had a lovely, relaxing five days here with our three boys. The villa is beautifully situated right next to Lake Koggala and is a wonderful refuge. The staff were wonderful, helpful and attentive, cooked us some lovely meals, and we had some great laughs with the night watchman who took us out fishing one night. Would definitely recommend.

Lake Side Paradise
Stay here. You just must! This is a very peaceful location, away from the tourist crowds of seafront locations. There is plenty of nature to see if you sit and read on the upstairs balcony - monkeys, birds, squirrels and even eagles! We stayed for 4 nights and were looked after beautifully by the staff. We ate delicious food, which was better than any other place we went in Galle, and never wanted for anything. The staff will put you in touch with local tuk tuk drivers who speak excellent english and will act as a tour guide if you wish. We hope to return here some day and make more wonderful memories.

Fantastic holiday, stunning location
My family spent a relaxing week at the cottage, using the pool, fishing on the lake and the odd visit around the area. Property and staff excellent. If you want a relaxing and peaceful holiday this is the place for you.

Vacation bliss
This is a peaceful, relaxing environment and the level of customer service is superb. The staff has an uncanny ability to anticipate your every need and then some. You have the opportunity to do as much or as little as you want. I would recommend this property to anyone who wants somewhere to unwind or get away from it all.

Paradise found
We just spent one glorious week at South Point Cottage and our entire family, including 2 children aged 9 & 12 agree that this has been one of our favorite holidays. Yes, the cottage and its location are beautiful and tranquil, but what made South Point outstanding was the owner and the staff. Sonali is a gracious and kind hostess. She was always available to help and advise and she let us use the facilities at the gorgeous beach house when it was empty. We loved meeting the dogs! Shanta the cook turned out the most delicious creations at very meal. Although we had planned to try some restaurants in Galle, we gave up on that idea once we tasted Shanta's food. Sujit the butler was able to discern our needs almost before we recognized them ourselves. He took care to always prepare the rooms and dining table beautifully and even taught my daughter how to fold dinner napkins in many shapes. He did everything to make the children happy and to allow us all to feel absolutely relaxed. The caretaker took the children fishing and out on a boat safari. Gamini the manager went and bought me a hopper pan when I expressed interest in making hoppers back home. Each staff member was excellent in every way and as a result I shall look back on this holiday as one of my all time favorites. If you are considering a trip to the Galle area and if one of the south point properties is in your budget, do not hesitate. This place is absolute perfection.

Idyllic Location - staff outstanding
Idyllic location with very caring staff. Lake front position - expansive views over Lake Koggala. The staff very attentive & discreet at the same time. food was just amazing - fresh, varied & they catered to everyone's needs - the pizza was a hit with Kids! Swims in the pool, strolling down the beach, boat rides in the lake + a spot of whale watching. ( Book Raja & the Whales - great trip) Main area of improvement was the bedding comfort - was ok - but could be upgraded.

Fantastic hideaway - with great staff
We chose South Point Cottage as we wanted something away from the main road, a relaxing environment, walking distance to the beach and good food. The Cottage and its team delivered everything, - cant wait to go back!
