A fabulous "boutique " hotel facing a totally rpivate and expensive beach but still alive with fishermen and their traditional boats. Our villa was luxurious but elegant and tasteful. The personnel dedicated to the villa was extremely kind and attentive and served us excellent arrak coctails and the food was superb especially a very unsual black pork so tender and tasty...still dreming about it,the very best in Sri Lanka! and we tried many top restaurants. The room was simple but colorful and very confortable, we slept like babies in spite of the heavy rainfall. Nothing else to say just that is was a highlight in our two week journey in Sri Lanka and our best recommendation is that we would like to go back as soon as possible though so far away for us ( France). Not to be missed. The manager has been very generous with us and many thanks again.

We arrived to a warm welcome, dinner already prepared for us and a sumptuous room. The staff were fantastic. Very capable and friendly. Special mention for Ravindra who helped organise my meal (I have a lot of food intolerances) and the lady who served our evening meal who was lovely. We will be back to stay longer next trip

My husband and I spent the last 3 nights of our honeymoon here and oh did we wish we could have spent longer! The first two nights they put us in Kurumba house. This house used to be owned by a British lady who then sold it to Taru Villas. A woman worked at that house and now is hired by Taru Villas to take care of it with the villa guests. She is very kind and attentive and made sure my husband and I felt very comfortable. The Kurumba house is nice because it has a full kitchen, a huge lawn space with lounge chairs and tables, a private pool in the back, and private beach access. This was a perfect spot for anyone who is looking for an all-inclusive place to stay. Our third night we stayed in the Master bedroom. This room was honestly better than the room in the Kurumba house. If you're looking for more privacy, the Kurumba house is for you. But if you're looking for a nicer room that also has a plunge pool, the Master bedroom was definitely the best. All around, this villa has everything you need for a luxurious stay at a beachfront. While we were there the ocean was a bit too rough to swim in but it was still beautiful to look at. We also explored down the coastline and found a hidden inlet around the corner. My husband and I definitely have no regrets staying here for part of our honeymoon. It was beautiful and the staff even gave us a small cake congratulating us for our marriage at the end of our stay! We highly recommend this to anyone looking for a peaceful and relaxing place to get away!

Everything about our stay at Taru Villas Kurumba House was perfect. We have travelled much of the world and this is now one of my favorite stays ever, anywhere. The villa is lovely and very comfortable. The outdoor living was such a treat, particularly in the evenings. The private pool was an added bonus. The beach access was ideal and there were only a few bicycles passing now and then and very few people passing through. The food was fantastic - everything we were served was delicious. The staff are so attentive, professional and discrete, considering there is always someone within an earshot to be of assistance. Special shoutout to Rupa who was so attentive and Oshan the property manager - they really made our stay perfect. Also, thanks to Sewwandi who very patiently coordinated my stay via Whatsapp. We will most certainly be back soon!
