We had high expectations but it went way beyond everything we hoped for. The villa is absolutely beautiful and the service is next level! It was really spacious, beautifully decorated in amodern and minimalist way and there was direct access to the beach.Counting the days until we can return. If we could give it 6 stars we would! Thank you Mr. Kumar & Team Cataloupe.

Dear Ms Fernando,

Thank you very much for taking the trouble to write us a review- this is invaluable for small villas such as ours. We are thrilled to hear that we exceeded your high expectations.

A lot of time and care by owners went into designing and decorating the villa and we are so pleased that it was to your taste.

We will be sure to convey your praise of the service to our staff and hope that you won't have to count too many days before we welcome you back. And we will take 6 stars, thank you!

With best wishes,

We had a fabulous time at this property. We loved Galle. We loved the hotel. We stayed at the room Mora. The staff was very careful, attentive and helpful. The views are breathtaking. The swimming pool and private beach is beautiful. The staff, the chef and the manager were all really hospitable.

From the moment we arrived we knew this was a special destination. Not only for the incredible wedding we were privileged to share but also for the stunning rooms looking out to the Indian Ocean.

We then experienced the warm and friendly staff accompanies by incredible food options.

There are only 7 beautifully appointed rooms, 5 for couples and 2 family rooms all with sustainable, modern functions. The antique furniture with quickie furnishings added to the joy of staying in this throughly modern building.

Such a small piece of heaven in the southern end of Galle.

Thank you for 3 fantastic days. We will return

Located in a magnificent beach, Sielen Diva is a luxurious boutique hotel, which will give you an experience of a life time. I have been to Sielen Diva with my wife to spend our wedding anniversary and it has become a memorable stay for both of us.

It is not far from the historical Galle town, as well as the famous Jungle beach and the Unawatuna beach. As you enter to the hotel premises from the main gate, Amila, the hotel manager, will be there to greet you and escort you inside. From there onward, the level of hospitality provided by the Sielen Diva staff is splendid. Amila will make sure to attend to each and every guest, fulfilling all their needs. His entire staff is really kind and will attend to your needs right away, as they have a good understanding of their guests.

We stayed in the room called "Mora", which was really cool. Huge, is an understatement for the space they have allocated for a room and its bathroom. At Sielen Diva, even a standard room will give you a suite experience. I had a chance to see their suites and they are massive. Anyone who would like to get the experience of having your own holiday home by the beach, go for Sielen DIva suites. Suites on the ground floor will give you direct access to the garden and the beach.

The view I had from my room was out of this world. The sea view with ships gently swaying near the horizon to the rhythmic waves, will take you to a whole new dimension of calmness. The rooms were absolutely clean as they have just built them. Each room is equipped with a smart TV and high speed internet, which will make your stay fancy.

Sielen Diva will provide you an ala carte menu for your meals, but if you want something out of the menu specially made for you, they won't think twice to cook it for you. The food we had was really tasty and clean. For me and my wife, they have arranged a mind blowing candle light dinner by the beach garden, under the moonlight.

The infinity pool by the garden will complete the luxury stay one can enjoy at Sielen Diva. Unlike in most hotels, Sielen Diva pool side is open till 10 pm at night, so you can enjoy as much as you like.

After the romantic candle light dinner, Amila was kind enough to take us to the hidden basement garden area of Sielen Diva, which will grant you access to its play area. Equipped with a Foosball table, a pool table, a carom table and so many board games for kids, the play area will be a heaven inside heaven for you and your family. If you want to play macho, you can challenge your partner to a dart game on their dart board. If you get bored, select a good movie from their movie collection and watch it on the big screen smart TV, while laying down on the comfortable sofa.

The entire stay at Sielen Diva was above 5 stars and we actually did not want to leave, even after the complementary late check-out offered to us. Both myself and my wife are looking forward to come back again. Hope Sielen Diva will keep up its awesome service.

Dear Chathuranga,

Thank you for taking the time to write us a review and post your lovely photos.

We also thank you for choosing to celebrate your wedding anniversary with us. It is always an honour when guests pick us for their special occasions.

We are thrilled that you enjoyed our in room facilities, view and pool. Our garden suites have been popular with guests due to their size and the direct access to the garden and the beach and we are flattered by your description of them being akin to one's own holiday home by the beach.

You are right; our chefs are happy to prepare dishes that are not on the menu and we are glad you enjoyed your candlelight dinner on the lawn by the sea and then spent the evening in our games room.

A reluctance to leave is the mark of an enjoyable holiday and we hope to welcome you back again soon.

With best wishes,
The Villa Sielen Diva family

Having fallen in love with the southern part of Sri Lanka with its raw, natural beauty, I was excited to be going back for a holiday with a group of close friends. Sielen Diva was on the cards even before the resort was built, and my expectations were high. The group of us occupied all seven bedrooms, so we had the entire villa to ourselves, including its spectacular view which was ours all day and night - each room, including the main pool and lounge area is built in a way that captures the full, open view of the Indian Ocean. The sounds of crashing waves and wind-blown hair is what you can expect during the entire duration of your stay, and that's a promise! The resort is a great option if you are holidaying with family and friends as it offers both privacy to read a book alone (or a solo walk on the beach) or to dine, dance, and be merry communally in its generously spacious lounge area. While the rooms, decor, design and fittings of the resort are all very commendable, what impressed me the most were the staff that run this resort. From the food that was dished out to attending to your every need, you can expect nothing less than amazing. If you're a foodie who is happy to indulge in authentic Sri Lankan cuisine, go on a diet before this holiday because you will pile on the pounds! The menu is not limited to Sri Lankan cuisine, but I can only vouch for this because I opted for the local fare during my stay. This particular holiday was planned in advance to celebrate four milestone birthdays in our group, and the main party was meant to be a surprise! I liaised with the resort manager (Amila) weeks in advance via email - everything from hiring a DJ and florist to the dinner menu, performances and decorations were discussed, and on the day of the party, everything turned out beautifully! Keeping this party a secret was a huge challenge on the part of the resort manager, who continually liaised with me surreptitiously during my stay right up to the party day. Prepping the resort according to the party theme and setting up all the decorations were executed so flawlessly that we managed to pull off a huge surprise birthday party! This could not have been possible without the cooperation of all staff members at the resort who danced to my every tune. The party was a blast, and it was a sorry day when we had to leave the resort a day or two later. I highly recommend this place if you are an ocean/beach person, if you love having your tastebuds surprised, and if you are planning a holiday with family and friends.

Room tip: There is one one room that might be suitable for wheel-chair bound guests.

Dear Shamayne,

Thank you very much for taking the trouble to write us a review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your holiday at Villa Sielen Diva. We were honoured that you chose to celebrate not one but four milestone birthdays with us and by booking the villa in its entirety, our team were able to dedicate themselves wholly to ensuring that everything was to your satisfaction.

Putting on holiday weight is a compliment to our chefs and we are so happy that you enjoyed all your meals in the villa.

It is a sign of a good holiday when you are sorry to leave and we hope that we will be able to welcome you back in the not too distant future.

With best wishes,
The Villa Sielen Diva family
