Peace and tranquility all the way: We have just returned from relaxing here for 4 nights. What a find this boutique style guesthouse has been. Set in a majestic, private garden with trees and shrubs (all named) greatly appreciated by us and the abundant bird life, small squirrels, fruit bats and a monitor lizard. Our room was large and well appointed really good for keeping luggage out of the way The beautiful infinity pool, the rural setting, home cooking and excellent, attentive, friendly service all combined to make an idyllic retreat.
We spent the first and last night of our trip in this dreamy villa. Beautiful garden and swimming pool, big comfortable rooms with hot shower. The staff is amazing, very dedicated, and you can arrange a drive around the country with them. Highly recommended!
Firstly picked up us from airport on time. Instructions where to meet very clear. Short drive to Villa. Amazing staff, very friendly and helpful. Felt safe and right at home on arrival. Room very clean and large. Breakfast was lovely. Lovely gardens. Pool very large.
We stayed at this lovely place the night before our return home. The small hotel is situated in a quiet area well away from the busy center but close to the international airport. The garden and the view are really beautiful and the pool is just perfect. The lovely family running the hotel are very very kind and helpful and prepared some lovely tasteful Sri Lankan meals. We and our small kids absolutely loved it here and would recommend it as the perfect end or start of your journey through Sri Lanka.
We stayed there 27/04/19 before going to the airport. We felt very save there. Close by the airport and not being in Negombo or Colombo. The garden with pool is really beautiful and you can see the love in it. The family are the most lovely people. They took care of everything and the sri lankan dinner was so full of taste. Would definitely recommend it. It feels like a secret hide out.
Very close to the airport. Peaceful, it is basically located in a village. They have a little garden with various trees kinds of trees and have chickens, geese and turkey, which added to the ambience for our children. It was actually like staying at someone’s home and the food was authentic home cooked Sri Lankan which we loved. Please keep in mind this is a basic accomodation, nevertheless clean and well looked after by the managing couple. Thanks again to Shiran and his wife!
This is the perfect airport hotel - 10 mins drive from terminal, but in a green quiet oasis. Beautiful, peaceful garden, fabulous swimming pool and lovely spacious clean rooms. Amal the host is charming and goes out of his way to look after his guests. Free transport to/from airport is a great extra that he offers and there's lovely food too. Its a shame we only stopped one night on our way home as it was one of the nicest places we stayed in Sri Lanka - thank you Amal!!
This small property is one of the closest places offering accommodation near Bandanaraike Airport/ Rooms are comfortanble, with a fridge and a working space. Like many places in Sri Lanka, the supply of hot water is a bit hit and miss; in a hot climate this is not the disaster it may seem, but it does require some getting used to. What makes this unique is the location. Although very close to the airport, it is down a secluded rural lane in a peaceful, isolated situation, about a fifteen-minute drive to Negombo. Any inconvenience caused by the isolated location is offset in part at least by the transportation to and from the terminal provided by the hotel. Set against that is the tranquility of the extensive grounds including a pleasant outdoor seating area where a very nice breakfast is served, a pool, and gardens with many native plants, frequented by native bird species. As a place to stop over before departure, or to get your footing on arrival in Sri Lanka, this is a very comfortable and pleasant alternative.…
We booked these villas for a 12 hour stop over before our flight home. We were picked up by the free airport transfer and taken there which took around 10-15 minutes. Upon arrival we were met by the manager Amal who showed us to our room which was immaculately clean had a large double bed and a sofa bed with a large en-suite bathroom. Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances we were unable to leave the next morning and Amal was absolutely amazing. He arranged for us to be able to stay on in our room and helped us with phone calls and transport to assist us whenever necessary. He cooked food for myself and the family which tasted absolutely wonderful, nothing at all was too much trouble. He was very calm and went over and above to help us. The pool and the gardens are absolutely beautiful and Amal is very proud of the villas, as he should be. It’s very difficult to believe you are so close to the airport. The gardens have beautiful trees which are all labelled so you can see what is growing and amazing wildlife. The villas are very quiet and serene and it’s impossible not feel relaxed when you are there. We ended up staying for 4 nights. I have been to Sri Lanka a few times and I can honestly say this is the best place that I have ever stayed. We will definitely be returning here as soon as we can. Amal and his family are truly amazing people and the villas are absolutely fabulous. …
We spent a night here before flying home. A lovely property in a great location just 10 mins from the airport, but it is not your typical airport hotel. The staff were incredibly helpful especially helping with a medical situation that arose. Very clean, food was great and authentic pool was lovely. Can’t recommend enough if you need somewhere near the airport but don’t fancy a bland hotel room.
