the delicious food and could not actually think of food! The children were kept There are not enough words to explain how great this villa is. The people who work there make it their mission to make your stay as wonderful as they can. Everything is tailored just for you. There were 18 of us travelling from Australia, Hong Kong and U.K and the ages ranges were 70 - 3 years. The staff helped with taking a sick child to the doctors and making sure everything was ok. Playing with children whilst the pool was being cleaned (was very early in the morning i might add). The food was the best on the island and if i had to moan about anything it would be that the villa needs a sample menu as when asked what we would like for dinner, lunch or breakfast it was normally after we had stuffed our faces with happy with the wide range of food too from spag bol to chicken goujons to everything inbetween. The rooms were clean and any extra bedding or towels that were asked for were quickly delivered. The security guards were discreet and reassuring that every time we went on to the public beach (which was quiet) we were watched for safety reasons. Its true you can't swim in the sea it is too rough but a walk and a paddle is fine. The unawattuna beach a short tuk tuk ride away is fabulous for food, shops and cocktails! I am not a lover of any animals whilst on holiday and try to avoid them if i can, but the villa dog is an exception! My 13 yr old daughter and her friend went on to the beach and the dog followed, whenever anyone approached the dog would go and sit next to the girls and "protect" them as people would walk the opposite direction. It was very reassuring. I could babble on with all the things that are so great with this place (including a phone call from the owner to check you're having a good time and everything was ok). But the truth is If you want a fabulous holiday where you are pampered and spolit - this is the place!
15 of us went there for 5 days for a friend's 40th. We fell in love with the place instantly. The property, the service, the food, the beach, the pool and the gardens were all incredible. I would go back in a heartbeat. Been to many places in Asia, this is one of my favorites!
The place was great, it was right on the beach with a lovely pool and big garden. the staff was non intrusive and very polite. we got the entire place and it was very private. there is a very big garden as well. all in all its highly recommended for a big crowd.
The villa was spacious although dated and in need of refurbishment. When it rained couple of the rooms had leaks. One over the bed luckily we were able to move around. Also we were not impressed by our welcome. The manager wasn't there the staff didn't introduce themselves. We were not told which rooms had a safe and a couple had hair dryer but we were not told this either. Electric sockets didnt work in some of the rooms and there were problems with the air conditioning in some of the rooms. When the manager finally came he didn't even introduce himself. I think he should be sent on a hospitality course. What would be useful would be a folder explaining who staff are and what services provided. The chef was brilliant and quickly learnt how to make Indian Masala tea and poached egg. We enjoyed the sri Lankan curries she made.
The villa has a house dog and cats this should be in the brochure some people may have allergies.
Perfct villa to chill with a group and have your privacy. Personnel is superfriendly and an excellent chef. Close to dutch fort and other nice things in the south of Sri lanka.
