We had an unforgettable week staying at Ambalama with our four children. The location is perfect with a stunning view of the beach, a great beach bar and lagoon a 5 minute walk away, a rope swing on the beach and great shopping and sightseeing in Galle a 10 minute tuk tuk ride away. The Villa is beautifully decorated and...

We had an incredible experience staying at Ambalama! We were two families traveling together (kids ages 8-14 yrs) starting first in India. The end of our holiday was in Sri Lanka and I feel so fortunate to have come across this villa when I was researching. It was not only a beautiful setting but a wonderful, open house. The staff...

What a fantastic experience! Having made a fairly long and tiring journey to the villa my wife and I were greeted with big smiles, cool towels and a refreshing drink....and then the views! The location, hospitality and whole experience (4 days stay) were fantastic. Nothing seemed too much trouble for the team there.The food was superb - we even accompanied...

Great villa, suitable for a large family or group of friends - staff were excellent, counting the days until next trip for Chef Roshan's prawn curries and fish burritos. Good location for visiting nearby Unawatuna and Galle.

The wow factor as you walk into the living room and face the sea, hear the waves is unforgettable. A great pool and garden to relax in,and enjoyed some splendid meals. The cook has natural skills and is able to offer a local and international range of food. So convenient to be able to dine at this 5 star level...

Totally enjoyed being spoiled rotten at this fantastic beach villa last week, which, for me, fulfills all criteria for a wonderful holiday destination: - spaceous and tastefully decorated accommodation on a virtually deserted beach; Huge Bali-style outdoor ensuite bathrooms - 'Club-level' service by friendly and attentive staff. Small example: I was impressed when staff discretely turned the comfortable sunning-chairs toward...

This beautiful beach-front villa in the Galle area really wowed my group for our first ever trip to Sri Lanka. Kudos to Chris and team for accommodating both staggered arrival times at the airport and a late booking all without any issues. The villa itself is on a rather secluded stretch of beach that makes it feel like your own...

We've just returned from a week at this beautiful villa. The location is perfect, with a beautiful swimming bay just along the beach and only 15 mins in a tuk tuk from the gorgeous colonial Galle. The villa had four bedrooms, all on suite and all with aircon, not to mention the most spectacular sea views. The staff are led...

We booked into Ambalama for 3 nights following a week in the Maldives, our greatest regret is that we should have booked for a longer stay. The Villa is fantastic and the location beyond belief. All the staff went out of their way to make us welcome and provide us with some wonderful memories - and the food - Wow!!...

We were are group of 6 friends that stayed at Ambalama for 5 days. Our plan was to use Ambalama as a base and make day trips in and around Galle. That worked out better than we had imagined. The pictures do not do justice to the villa. What you get in reality is a lot better than what you...
