A special thank you to Suresh & his team for ensuring my parents & family had a fantastic time at Apa villa!

The rooms are very spacious with the the added bonus of sea view and open veranda to enjoy meals in private.

The chefs were excellent! Suresh did his best to accomodate all our food requests! The waiters were very attentive and ensured we were always attended to and enjoying our stay.

On one evening while walking on beach I purchased fish from stilt fisherman and the chefs were happy to cook the fish for me! This is true home away from home decadence!

The hammocks & day beds scattered around the property ensured we all had a relaxing time!

As we navigate a pandemic, Apa villa offered the perfect solution! Beachside boutique accommodation that offered all the perks needed to be pampered whilst ensuring privacy & reduced risk of exposure!

A special thank you to the reservation team! They ordered a seamless process!

Apa Villa is a small Villa with just seven rooms right on the beach. What's special about this place is the location, the architecture, the very personal experience this Villa offers you. The food is great, the staff very friendly, helpful and respects your privacy. The manager makes sure you are well taken care of. Loved the salt water pool and the stunning sunsets. One of the nicest Villas in the country.

Room tip: All the rooms are great, but we had their premium suite which was really lovely

We had high expectations of Apa Villa based on the pictures and friends who had visited but our stay was really disappointing... The food was not even upto the standards of even a three star hotel. The rooms and bathroom were a bit run down and not value for money as per their rate of 40k (LKR) a night. The WiFi was really bad and there was no phone connection as well.

On the plus side, the location was great, right on the beach and with a nice pool.

If you're looking for a holiday with some exclusivity, this would be it. Apa Villa has 7 suites (living area, bedroom and bathroom) and quite spacious ones too. We stayed in the saffron villa and loved every bit of it. The service was excellent, staff was very polite and were quite ready to make our stay comfortable. There's a large garden with a well manicured lawn and plenty coconut trees which I'm sure were preserved when designing the swimming pool. You get butler service and EXCELLENT food. I spent most of the time reading, while lounging on a hammock while hearing the waves of the ocean. You can't quite bathe in the sea because of the reefs, other than it's quite a perfect place I'm sure we will visit again.

We stayed at Apa Villa as a group of 3 families, 6 adults and 6 children. The resort is simply stunning, with breathtaking views over the ocean and a beautiful swimming pool. All 7 suites are finished to the highest standard, there are 2 family rooms which were just perfect for the children to be close enough but far enough away at the same time. We spent the days lazing in the hammocks under the palm trees, building sandcastles on the beach or swimming in the pool, which was broken up by eating so much wonderful food prepared by the chef and served straight to our verandahs by the butlers. One night we had a seafood buffet and the prawns, lobster and crab was simply superb! The children enjoyed all of their meals too. The service received was first class, nothing was too much trouble and we felt like we had complete privacy the whole time during our stay. The beds are so comfy and complete with mosquito nets which our little girl loved sleeping under. Apa Villa has been tastefully designed with a library and games for the children, TVs, sitting areas and fans in the suites.

Apa Villa is perfect for a group of friends or families or likewise a great honeymoon spot too! Thank you so much Suresh and all of the staff we will be back again!!!
