We stayed here for one night at the start of our Sri Lanka tour. The hosts were friendly and cooked us delicious dinner and breakfast (still among the best food we have had two weeks into the trip!). Nice to have a dip in the pool and a cool place by the river!
Very close indeed to the airport - we could hear the planes - is a sizeable area of marshy land bounded by a sluggish river, on whose other bank lies this modern and gorgeous villa. We found it by chance, and at the last minute and count ourselves very lucky. Only three(?) rooms here but a lovely-looking pool, lots of trees around the place, and an attractive dining area next to the open kitchen and servery. The room was very large, a 'family room' with one huge and one small bed, colourful decor (as with the entire property), and a large semi-open bathroom with somewhat sparse hot water. All was clean. We had a very warm welcome from the staff who may have been family of the owner whom we also met. Car parking seems not to be an issue. We had an excellent rice and curry dinner and 'local' breakfast. I can't imagine a better antidote to jetlag on arrival, or to frenetic Sri Lankan travel on departure, than an overnight here. Excellent place.…
We received a very warm and friendly welcome from Ananda and his family, they couldn’t do enough for us. The family gave us some great tips of things to see and what Sri Lanka was about! Food was fresh and homemade, we were treated to so many different curries, it was authentic and amazing. This was definitely a great start to our trip. The villa has a few room which makes it nice and personable, swimming pool was nice and refreshing. The room was a decent size, clean and comfortable. One thing to be aware of is the shower and toilet was outside but all enclosed and private. It was quite refreshing to have shower outside due to the heat. Would highly recommend!,
We started and ended our holidays at Villa Randoni with Ananda and his family (wife and daughters). We had the absolutely best curry and rice from our trip. Ananda and his family are very helpfull and attentionate. Don't hesitate to come here - highly recommended!!
We were treated with such amazing hospitality by this beautiful family. We will be back. Food fabulous, rooms comfy, pool clean and right at our door. Randoni means golden daughters and Anandas family are gorgeous. Talented they speak great English and are great cooks.
We stayed here for one night only before moving on to the rest of our tour. But what a lovely start to our holiday in Sri Lanka. The service was exceptional and friendly, the food was lovely, the rooms were clean, spacious and well appointed and the location was absolutely superb. I can't say too much more because it was such a short stay but I would highly recommend this fantastic place.
My family of four stayed at Randoni Villa for our first stop in Sri Lanka - we had picked it for its proximity to the airport but realized very quickly the calm paradise it was. It was beautiful, serene and clean and the family that runs it is lovely. My children had fun playing in the pool and we also enjoyed the lovely meals. The large room we had was clean and functional. As we were getting to it we were concerned because it’s a bit on a dirt road off the main road but the property is on a nice stream of water. Highly recommend and we would stay here again.
This hotel was one of the best that we visited in Srilanka. Although the location was a bit out of the way, it was worth it as there was a lovely pool and nice rooms. The bathroom was especially exciting as there was even a tree inside it! The service was amazing since the hotel is owned by a kind family who looked after us well and the breakfast we were given was also great. I would definitely recommend this hotel as it is a cheap but relaxing place to stay and is also close to the airport!
Cozy quiet little oasis next to the river with perfect location to the airport. The family that owns the place was really nice and welcoming. They made the best dinner and arranged a transfer to the airport. We highly recommend it. Perfect end of our vacation.
What an excellent choice this turned out to be when we flew into Colombo very late one evening. The owner had arranged a taxi transfer for us and although our flight was delayed, the taxi man was waiting patiently for us. Also awaiting our arrival was Ananda, the owner, who quickly showed us our room and adjoining bathroom. Life at Randoni is very peaceful but incredibly welcoming. We felt welcomed as if we were one of the family. Our room was spacious and clean and there was always hot water. The plunge pool is inviting but breakfast and suppers are a Sri Lankan delight! The curries that Ananda’s wife and daughter prepared were some of the best we tasted in Sri Lanka. If you need a simple, clean comfortable base, especially for the start or end of a holiday, then look no further, Randoni Villa will help you to relax in traditional Sri Lankan surrounds.…
