I stayed for 3 weeks in the Freedom villa on the surf package. Freedom also organised and booked a 10-day tour for my Dad and I before arriving in Weligama (Negombo, Pinnawala, Sigirya, Dambulla, Anuradhapura, Nurawa Eliya, Ella). Leomi was absolutely amazing. She answered every question we had, dealt with all our requests promptly, and was so accommodating of any budget query, suggestion or change of heart we had along the way. We felt free to do our own thing and also very well looked out for. Leomi also arranged for Suren to drive us from place to place, who was professional, lots of fun and full of recommendations - we were always stopping off at food stalls or unexpected places, hearing about Sri Lankan history, culture, religion, and so on. He was an amazing tour guide! My Dad even got to play a bit of cricket with him at the bottom of Little Adam’s Peak (a real highlight for him so I thought it deserved a mention…) All in all we had an incredible time and it was really all down to Freedom’s careful planning and recommendations - very grateful to Leomi for making it happen!
I also had a great few weeks staying with Freedom in Weligama. The teachers are fun and encouraging - the school is really accommodating in terms of how fast you want to progress, how regularly you want lessons etc. The villa is ideally placed and very relaxing - it's light and breezy, and so nice to come back to in the afternoons if you’re a bit knackered from the surf. It’s also a great place to meet people if you’re a solo traveller. Leomi and Rowan both go out of their way to make sure every one of their guests has the best time possible - from delicious breakfasts, to sorting laundry service and bike hire, to lifts to the local doctor if you’re a bit clumsy and manage to cut yourself on your own surfboard fin... They’re also full of recommendations for restaurants or nearby day-trips for days when you feel like exploring. I felt seriously lucky to find them and whole-heartedly recommend Freedom as a school and accommodation to anyone visiting Weligama - such a special place!
