A children’s bunk room cleverly has a larger bottom bed for a nanny. The master suite has an adjoining room with twin beds for smaller children. Hidden amongst the tropical planting lies the water slide (use at own risk) snaking it’s way into a plunge pool that rather geniously is separated from the main pool to allow kids to splash around whilst the less frantic can relax in calm waters. A large terrace offers ample tanning spots. The garden suite rests quietly by the pool and looks out across the lawn, on which many a SL vs the rest of the world cricket match is had, towards the yoga sala that is large enough for all. The chef is excellent and all food will tickle the taste buds. In all, this is a fabulous house that exudes wonderful energy and promises a fun time for all family and friends.

STUNNING villa and exceptional service,
We’ve stayed in quite a lot of villas in this part of Sri Lanka and Meda Gadera is in a league of its own. Fiona is an amazingly attentive host and the whole team is exceptional. We had fabulous food and service and even saw a green turtle laying 109 eggs right next to a magical BBQ on the beach. I can’t recommend this place highly enough. Fabulous house, superlative staff and a stunning location.

Magical family stay in Meda Gedara
Meda Gedara is an incredible villa to stay with all family generation. Decoration is perfect, garden is beautiful with breathtaking view of the sea and the waterslide is definitely a highlight for the kids AND adults! The staff is absolutely amazing, always helpful and ready to help you to make your stay memorable. Again thousands of thank you to all and the chef for delicious food. As well a special thank you to Charis, we'll never forget the monk blessing in the temple. Thank you as well to the owner Fiona for the very efficient and friendly exchanges that we had via email to organise this memorable stay in MG.

As good as it could possibly get!
19 of us, three generations all had the very best of holidays at Meda Gedara. Two weeks of fabulous food (including mangos and more mangos!) and wonderful, wonderful spoiling personal hospitality. The most beautiful empty beach (not great for swimming but the pool more than compensated) at the end of the garden, kite flying, temples, surf lessons, tuk tuks on command. And the house and garden areas are as gorgeous as the photos! Altogether amazing.

Amazing family stay at Meda Gedara
We stayed at the Meda Gedara villa for 4 days and were blown away by the villa, the surroundings and the service we experienced. What a beautiful and peaceful place, the friendly staff and delicious food just added to a perfect stay in Sri Lanka. We will definitely be back for more, thank you Meda Gedara for an unforgettable experience!

Meda Gedara will blow you away never been to such an idyllic place okay
“Meda Gedara is like something off a film set, our jaws dropped when we walked on arrival. We had the most wonderful romantic break, making the most of the privacy and luxurious facilities. The massages were such a treat and the food was out of this world. The personal service you get when you book direct is second to none, the attention you get from Fiona (the owner) makes the entire holiday planning a real joy; she takes real care taken to ensure that everything is considered so by the time you get to the villa all you have to do is down-tools and relax. We would go back to Meda Gedara in a heartbeat.” Patrick leatham

Beautiful Luxury Villa
We held our wedding at the villa Aug 22, having deferred two years due to Covid. It was really worth the wait, the day was everything we had hoped for and more. We were a group of 14 incl adults and young adults. We all enjoyed immensely. Food was superb and staff friendly and attentive, noting was too much trouble. They also catered for vegan and intolerances in our group. I highly recommend. It was also great value as we were full board and drinks were bought in at cost. On the wedding day the villa group manager arranged, flowers, dancers, fire eaters, mixologist, lights and excellent banquet. He also put us in touch with an excellent photographer. The whole day was seamless. The pools and water slide were brilliant and we had several days out locally.

The BEST STAY EVER!
Meda Gedara! I cannot recommend enough. What a place✨ The most magical and amazing holiday in paradise! From the moment we booked it was clear this would be something special! I’ve never had the pleasure to have someone be so accommodating and incredible in planning our stay. Our expectations were very high and somehow were surpassed! From planning with Fiona, who’s a star! And the most amazing staff that really went above and beyond. It was a perfect family holiday! The food was out of this world! The setting was unreal with the most beautiful beach and nature all around. The villa is just beautiful, every detail! True luxury! We left the villa once in 6 days! The pool, yoga shall and I can’t but mention the slide that we couldn’t not get enough of, adults and kids alike ! We will definitely be back to this special paradise

Simply incredible
This was our first week in Sri Lanka and we were very fortunate to have discovered this villa. The attention to detail that runs through every element of this stunning property is quite incredible. Every aspect of the Villa has been carefully considered. From the sweeping staircase in the vast hallway to the meticulously chosen crockery and cutlery, it’s clear an extraordinary level of care and thought has been made throughout. The staff are all dressed in a smart uniform, the pool and garden area is manicured to perfection and the food and service is of the absolute highest quality. Every detail has been considered. Holidaymakers feel a real sense of relaxation as the staff attend to your every need. They are always present but always discreet and recognise that the guests at the villa are there to rest and enjoy their time. They even put on a cricket match in the garden area against the 11 children we had in our party. Despite the home teams clear margin of victory it was a real highlight of the holiday for our youngsters! The chef prepared huge plates of langoustines, fresh fish or squid and on the last night a platter of five or six crabs had been prepared. The Sri Lankan curries are exquisite with a range of different side dishes and breads. The breakfasts represent the best of Sri Lankan cuisine or Traditional English fair, if required. The stone infinity pool overlooks the Indian Ocean and weaving round the side of the tiered garden is the most amazing water slide. Our children had such a laugh whizzing down the slide into the lower plunge pool. This holiday had everything. If you wanted activity, you could go on a whale watching tour or safari. If you want relaxation, this house is designed entirely for that purpose. If you want to go surfing, there are the most amazing waves and if you just want to just walk on the beach, it’s paradise. My only reservation is writing this review. I want this little slice of paradise to stay a secret……

Paradise
If I was more selfish I wouldn't write this review so that it would be easier to return again and again to Meda Gedara, but that just wouldn't be fair on the lovely owners and amazing staff who all want to share their slice of paradise with you. From the moment we booked directly (definitely worth doing!) we could tell that we were going to be looked after to the highest standard. I had looked at every review and image of the villa so many times pre departure but we were all still totally blown away on arrival. We had a group of 19 from aged 10 - 50 and we all agree we had a hugely special holiday. The staff can't do enough for you, they genuinely want you to have an amazing stay, the food is utterly fantastic, the villa, grounds and location are perfect and the fully functioning water slide is the cherry on the top. You very much feel like you have been asked to stay as a guest in someone's luxury home. Thank you Meda Gedara, we will be back!
