I recently stayed with my wife and 2 year old at 02 villas for 1 month. There were so many little nuance things I liked about this place. In no particular order here are some of them. My child is not an easy sleeper and having the beach so close was a God send both for naptime and night time sleeping. You can actually see the beach from the property gates. The walk is maybe 50-100 metres across a railway and then a main road. This part of the beach is super quiet and perfect for putting babies to sleep. The walk there and back always reminded me of the railway scene from stand by me. The gardens the property is set on are also amazing. Litrally on the banks of a river. Which naturally brings a lot of nature and wildlife. The birds that nest in the trees around produce an amazing orchestra of sound at both dusk and dawn that will give you jungle feelings. Sometime a night walk around the garden would be enough to help the little one sleep. The property is far away enough from the road that you cannot hear any vehicles. Yet the sound of crashing waves can be heard in the distance. The hospitality shown to us by the owner Jeewan and his family was emence. I felt like he went out of his way to accommodate us and help in any way possible. The villa is set on the land where he has his own family home, so immediately you feel like you are amongst a local community. Jeewan who is born and raised in Weligama litrally knows everyone and everything about the area and is able to advise and direct you in your needs during your stay, with great wisdom. The level of the finish on the villa is outstanding compared to other properties I have seen in the area. There was even a jacuzzi in our apartment. Fully functional with party lights and a radio/speaker system. The apartments are very well equipped, with comfy new furnishings. The beds in our apartment were the best beds I've ever slept in. The wife agreed There are always people on the property which made it feel safe, not that it is needed. This part of the world is super secure and we regularly slept without locking the doors and sometimes forgot keys in our bike etc. I also really enjoyed the views from the roof which showed river to oneside and railway to another. This was a good spot for early morning yoga. Squirrels climb off the over hanging coconut trees and run around on the roof. Added bonus! I also enjoyed the walk from 02 Villas to the best surf point on weligama beach infront of W15. The walk takes approximately 15 mins. Not only was it a great warm up and cool down before and after surfing, but also a very relaxing walk home. After the fisherman's boats, there are hardly any people around when returning from town, leaving you alone to your thoughts. A few small coconut shacks and food spots along the way, incase you need some fuel. Highly recommend a stay at 02 Villas.…
Great value with these being self contained apartments. Fabulous host who goes out of his way to make your stay comfortable and suit your needs. 100m away from Weligama beach and a short tuk tuk ride to Mirissa for whale watching or another great beach day. Restaurants within walking distance as well. Super comfortable beds, great AC, wifi and even TV with English channels. Nice shower and bath and drinkable tap water is a huge bonus!
This time was our family’s second stay at O2 villas and it was the right decision to make. Quiet, clean and very green area on the river, good accommodation including all the basic equipment for cooking. Very safe place during pandemic with minimal unnecessary contacts. Located just couple of hundreds meters from the weligama beach and big fruit store. The owner of the place with his family and the crew are really open and friendly, they’ve helped us with every question we’ve had.
Beautiful location, overlooking a serene river with lots of trees yet very close to the beach . (Just a 5 minute walk)…………………………………….. The owner is very friendly and made our stay very comfortable and super convenient……… Would recommend.
The place was nice and clean. the host was very nice, smiley and friendly. Really tried to help With transportation and even changing money. We were surprised to see more of an apartment than a hotel room(had a stove).
The owner is very friendly and helpful. He did his best to make us happy. He even gave us a lift when no cab was available. Apartment was very new and clean. Beds are comfortable. Good utensils. Birds and squirrels sing for you. Highly recommended.
We had an amazing experience at O2 Villas! The property is new, very well desined and maintained. It is super clean and comfy. The location is also unique - it is right on the bank of a beautiful river, also close to the beaches and shops. The owner and staff are very friendly and helpful. And the breakfast is delicious. After pandemic it is sometimes difficult to find a nice hotel or villa as many of them are closed or not yet operational and you can't see this on booking, only when you arrive. But O2 Villas are the best choice! Strongly recommend!
There are a few kinda OK places in Weligama bay, nothing really interesting. Until you go to O2 Villa. A beautiful little place located just 2 mins from the beach. Very high standard. There are a few villas situated in a beautiful garden. Check out the pictures and don't look any further. I can strongly recommend this for everyone!
spent a month here and it was our great pleasure to stay at o2 villas and enjoy the friendly calm atmosphere of this place. the location is great, only few minutes away from the beach and couple of minutes of ride to the city. this place gives you a perfect mix of hospitality along with having your own space. the garden is beautiful in both day and night time with the lights. the manager of the hotel is super helpful and someone who makes you smile just by being around. definitely recommend this place for both short and longterm stay. ❤️
The O2 villas is a hidden gem in Weligama. Located less than 300mts. from the Weligama surfing spot, the house is a paradise . With a river on one side and the beach on the other, it was beautiful. The rooms are spacious, modern and comfortably built . We stayed at their newly constructed suit with a modular kitchen and a jacuzzi, quite comfortable after a heavy day of surfing at the beach. Breakfast on the property was excellent. The host, Jeewantha and his family were there at every step to help us out. Definitely coming back to stay here the next time we are in Sri Lanka .
