We stayed in the largest suite with a huge wall to ceiling window making it very hard to leave. The large house was a spectacular 1950s style space built in 2018. We had full board and all the meals were excellent. There is a small beach just 50 metres away allowing swimming (but have been told it can get rough). Nevertheless, this place is my favourite beach side hotel of all time..

We spent a delightful 5 nights at Sielen Diva with our two kids (10 and 7) in February. The hotel itself is more like a stunning home (my son said we were 'living like Ronaldo'!) with just a few rooms, all fancing the beautiful beach and ocean. We were greeted like family and the team could not do enough for us throughout our stay. Our room was spacious for 4 of us, with a large bathroom. The breakfasts were amazing (those pancakes!) as was every meal that we had at the hotel. The pool is freshwater (not always the case) and despite it being a mostly couples hotel, no-one minded our kids enjoying the pool for hours. The location is great as you are close to lovely beaches at Dallawella (with turtles!) and Unawatuna, as well as the beautiful fort city of Galle a bit further away. But all within easy reach via tuktuk, which the hotel organised easily for us. All the staff were polite and friendly, and could not do enough for us as a family. Special mention to Charith who went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and help with every query and question, from restaurant recommendations to lost flip flops! He made us feel like one of the Sielen Diva family. A wonderful hotel which we will always remember fondly, and hope to return one day. Thank you.

We had a fantastic experience staying at Sielen Diva. It was our first stop in Sri Lanka and the hotel really is a stunning and relaxing location. Everyone that worked there was really friendly and couldn’t do enough for you! A big shout out to Hasanta who managed to work his magic to get us a table at a restaurant in Galle that was full booked which was one of the best meals we had in the country! Where they also went above and beyond was when we realised we had left our passport and cash in the safe after we had checked out! 🙈 By that time we had driven 2hrs down the coast so Hasanta reassured us he would keep it in the hotel safe until we returned to the area a week later. It was such a peace of mind and really appreciated! Can’t wait to return again one day and would recommend anyone to book a visit as well! Only thing I would change next time is stay longer! 🏝😁

Me and my partner got married at sielen diva recently and it could not have been more perfect, the view from the villa is second to none it is situated high up with a private rocky beach which makes for the best view on this road- the rooms are expertly decorated and large and airy, the staff are AMAZING they were so attentive and on hand every minute to help you with whatever you need and make your stay comfortable they were so polite and professional, we were called by our first names and our room tabs/names were known without us having to say them, the service was absolutely brilliant! The chef is the most talented in the area, the food is exquisite, everything was cooked to perfection and our wedding guests couldn’t believe how amazing the canapés tasted as well as the wedding dinner, it was unbelievable! The villa is safe and secure with 24 hour security guards we also brought my grandmother who was so well cared for by the staff it was almost as though they were part of the family Finally the wedding itself was amazing, everything was dealt with in a professional and beautiful manner, numerous guests told me it was the best wedding they had ever been too and also some even said the best day of their lives and this was all due to the amazing scenery around us and the high quality of everything provided by the villa, if you are thinking of getting married in Sri Lanka it must be at Sielen Diva, there is no where better!

This Villa / Hotel was amazing - we felt like we were in a magazine style shoot. Sielen Diva is the most unusual stunning building, every room is spacious with floor to ceiling windows and an ocean view. The atmosphere was peaceful and relaxing. The staff were very attentive and the food was fabulous. Charith in particular was attentive, friendly and charming. We cannot recommend this villa highly enough. With just seven rooms it had a wonderful exclusive and personal vibe.
