Well where do I start,we have just returned from a fantastic 28 night stay at Sri Lagoon Villa.From the collection at 2.00am at the airport by Anushka,the super breakfasts prepared by Geethika,the friendliness of the owners family and the return journey to the airport, everything was perfect.
The villa is located approximately 100 m from the main road in a quiet housing area it is approx a 300 m walk to the Indian ocean,the Negombo lagoon is at the bottom of the garden.
The villa is a modern well built house located in its own grounds ,it is exactly as per the owners description.
We must thank Geethika for the preparation of our breakfast s which were excellent and for the treats that she had prepared and left for us .If you get the chance have one of her excellent Sri Lankan meals which she will prepare for you,at an extra cost ,but we'll worth it.She gave us a cookery lesson one afternoon which we all appreciated .She is an excellent host friendly, helpful and now proud to say one of Sri Lankan friends.
We used Anushka for a number of day trips and can say he is a very safe driver,very considerate to his passengers,he has a modern air conditioned car, highly recommend him.
The Jetwing lagoon hotel is adjacent to the villa and is approx a 5 minutes walk to it where for a small fee you can have use of both of there swimming pools(
1 100m long and within the ground's of the hotel and a 25 m pool located across the road on the beach).
There is a small family run restaurant not far from the villa situated on the main road,the staff/owners are very friendly and we can definitely recommend it ,the food was freshly prepared and very tasty.
Negombo is either a 21 rupee bus ride or a 400 rupee tuk tuk ride away.The bus runs every 30 mins ,20 past and10 to the hour.
Thank you once again to the the owner Sirini for allowing us the use of their beautiful home and Geethika for her hard work ,care and attention in looking after us.
We obviously highly recommend Sri Lagoon Villa and hopefully be able to return one day
This was the third time that we visited Sri Lanka and each time we had different experiences that surpasse our expectation. Our 5-day vacation at Sri Lagoon villa was so wonderful that we completely forget about home. The villa, a very big house, is very secure and in a quiet neighbourhood. Our housekeeper, Geethika treated us like royalties and went all out to make our stay comfortable. Breakfast and her cooking were a delight. We had a very relax and peaceful holiday, which is much needed after a year of hard work. Like Seychelles, Sri Lanka also being an Island state and with the easy and relax life-style, was the ideal place for us to end our holidays and Sri Lagoon villa contribute much to allow us to have a spendid time.
The villa is ideal for extended family (safe for kids) and I will not hesitate to recommend it to people seeking a very relax and peaceful holiday.
We will remember this trip for a long time to come.
A wonderful home away from home and better. A beautiful setting with luxury within. Everything we would need and more with A/C in each bedroom, views from each bedroom. Our master suite had its own patio and overlooked neighbours and the yard, but very private.
Breakfast was well prepared and a good variety with fruit, yogurt, eggs, toast, fresh juice, coffee and tea. The housekeeper was delightful and very helpful. We had the use of the kitchen to prepare a meal and there was a kitchen upstairs as well. Internet was a little slow, but they had WIFI so much appreciated. We also had use of the laundry facilities. A lovely private home overlooking the lagoon.
With a location close to the airport, close to town without being in the noisy touristy thick of things the Sri Lagoon Villa offers a quiet, peaceful spot to get over your jet lag, get centered and prepare for your Sri Lankan journey.
Geeta, the house keeper, makes wonderful breakfasts and does a thousand little things to make your stay a great opportunity to relax and enjoy the shade of coconut palms, a light breeze coming off the lagoon, (the location is right on the lagoon) and sunny days.
Geeta also makes a wonderful dinner which is a must to catch so don't miss it.
