Seven days of pure relaxation - perfect location to do absolutely nothing. 😊 A holiday where you don't have to plan your day or oblige to wander around town. Grateful to all Apa staff who have been most welcoming and provided us with remarkable service during our stay. Our holiday was a total bliss! I would say -- lazy because...

Friendly staff, good location, close to town, good food and a relaxing atmosphere. The family and I really enjoyed our stay. The pool was a hit and the beach was often visited for a variety of things. We came here for a little R&R and that's what we got! Good times!

We stayed for 4 days while attending a destination wedding that was taking place at another nearby hotel. We much preferred our Apa Villa for its superb service, food, and design of the property. A local masseur can come to the property for massages, and I loved my massage from Razana so much that I had 2 with her during...

This tranquil villa with unforgettable views of the infinity pool framed by the Indian Ocean in the background, is a must-see. Food was really good and the service attentive and effortless. Drove from Colombo airport on the new expressway in under two hours, granted my plane landed at 4 am. Don't even think of staying anywhere else in this area....

Booked 2 rooms for wife and in laws. Loved the pool, the envoirnment and also the attitude of the staff. Attentive without being intrusive. Great food also, regretted going to Light house hotel for dinner, since it was terrible comparing to what was served at the villa. Happy to recommend this to all

This was our first trip to this beautiful teardrop island and our mission: to unwind and relax. The journey from the Colombo airport took us about 2.5 hours.

We have just spent two nights here as part of our honeymoon trip and we couldn't wish for a better setting. The beach is beautiful and the grounds are very relaxing. Although the sea isn't great for swimming here there is a wonderful infinity pool which more than makes up for it. The food was so good we decided to...

I was tempted to write a bad review to increase the chances of us being able to get a booking here at some point in the future, but this would have been doing Chaturi and team a tremendous disservice. Everything about our stay was great. The room, pool, grounds, garden, location, beachfront, and food were all exceptional. The service was...

We stayed 2 nights at Apa Villa and it was simply stunning. The villa is very nice with large suites and great bathrooms. The swimming pool was great and the service was top notch. The prices were good but we went mid-April. Highly recommended.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We have three distinct stylish bungalows facing the beach front and swimming pool. All rooms except for Cinnamon Suite 2, face the ocean and lovely coconut fringed ground. Cinnamon 1 is linked to Cinnamon 2 garden- facing suite through an adjoining door, ideal for a family with several children or a group of friends. Cinnamon 1, 2 and 3 have exceptional one double bed and one single bed sleeping arrangement under a giant mosquito net. Suitable for a couple with child. Cardamom 4 and 5 are located in the centre a few steps to the lovely pool. Each suite has a separate sitting lounge indoors and outdoors. Saffron 6 and 7 are the most luxurious suites with its own sitting lounge and private verandah. Both suites are separated by a walkway across a fish pond. All bedrooms are air-conditioned and with ceiling fans in all areas. The beach in front is not swimmable but good enough for dips and long strolls along the shoreline. We are about 15 minutes from Galle town and same distance to our sister villa Illuketia inland plantation mansion. Recently refurbished with new cushion covers and in-room coffee or tea service. Our revamped day and dinner menus are prepared by our experienced chefs. Meals are served in the privacy of your own verandah space. Our English-speaking staff will look after guests and their children with warm, friendly service. No one can resist sitting or lounging on the wooden deck and sandy ramps facing the eternal ocean, sunset or rising moon. Just what is needed for a relaxing holiday. ... more   less
