My brother and I stayed here last summer. Harold and Raf are so lovely and helpful. If you want something, they make it happen. They are also magificent cooks, the food there was the best food we ate throughout the entire trip to Sri Lanka. I loved the atmosphere at the villa, so relaxing. The surroundings are beautiful, and they...

I must say I totally agree with the other review, that nowhere else could possibly match up to Villa Don Hendrick. Harold and Raf are the most perfect hosts, so nice and super helpful. The attention to detail in this property is fantastic. Staff are the best we found in the whole of Sri Lanka. We only stayed 2 nights,...

We are an expat American and Chinese family of four based in Shanghai who stayed six nights over the Chinese New Year holiday. And we just loved our time...Harold, Raf and staff are gracious hosts always helpful and friendly but never in the way. We rented 2 of the 3 bungalows, making our stay a private holiday paradise. We loved...

We had a wonderful stay in Villa Don Hendricks. It is a stunning setting, like staying in a beautiful nature reserve, you get to watch peacocks and eagles from the porch of your own little villa at sunrise and sunset! Only 3 villas and so beautifully designed, it really is a fantastic boutique hotel. The food is absolutely delicious, beautifully...

Because after a stay there, nowhere else will ever be good enough. The bungalows are exquisite, the gardens a delight, the hosts charming. Such a welcome in perfect surroundings made it very difficult to leave this bit of paradise. It is just gobsmackingly gorgeous and I am not given to exaggeration. 5 stars rating is not enough.

The food, the place and the the hosts Ralf& Harold were amazing. After a week in Sri Lanka we were delighted to have a 3 nights stay in Villa Don Hendrick, and I must admit we were very sad to leave (we even tried to cancel the next hotel we booked but it was too late). It was not only...

I would like to be a sceptic when I read such amazing reviews on a place like this but truly there aren't any critical words to give to Villa Don Hendrik. The lovely couple who run the place had designed, (re)built and styled it to perfection. Many high-end (boutique) hotels, resorts and B&B's can learn from them. With so much...

We are thankful to Raf and Harold for making our stay a big pleasure. Looking at their website, you can already understand their excellent taste and attention to detail, which you experience there. An ordered professional massage was excellent and, as everything, good value for money. Ask for dinner and you will taste a nice fusion of Sri-Lankan and European...
