Spent just 4 nights here following my husbands work trip in Kalutara. The hotel is immaculate, beautifully styled with incredible attention to detail in both its facilities & service. The staff are attentive & charming & the food is wonderful. We don’t usually eat where we stay as it’s nice to get out in the evening & sample local restaurants but the Long House & The Rock villa’s food was so good & well priced, we didn’t bother after the 1st night. Can’t recommend this place enough, one of the loveliest hotels we’ve ever had the pleasure of staying in.

My husband and I spent a few days at the Long House on our two week trip in Sri Lanka and it was a highlight of our trip. The villa is absolutely stunning, the decor is beautiful, and the property is immaculately well kept. I should also mention that the service was exceptional and exceeded that of any hotel on our entire trip. The food and cocktails were top notch! While we spent most of the time at the pool, the beach is just steps away with beach-side service. I couldn't recommend this place enough, it was absolutely incredible.

The design of the property is something else. There has been so much thought behind the project. I’ve never stayed in a property quite like it. The unassuming entrance opens up in to a world of luxury. The furnishings, the public areas and the rooms are all spot on. The staff are simply fantastic and congratulations to the gentleman who looks after the beautiful gardens/flowers and the pool area. The staff always professional. The highest level of service and the staff are always smiling. The food is also lovely. The pool is something else and the train line at the end of the garden is well, just unique! Yes the trains may wake you. (Ear plugs provided. Another nice touch) Yes it does feel a bit strange sitting watching the train go past but my wife, daughter and I thought it was wonderful! The other side of the train track is a beautifully kept and quiet beach area which although open to the general Public is spotless and swimming was possible in February. 5/5 for the room. 5/5 for the staff. 5/5 for design and 5/5 for cleanness. Possibly another mirror in the bedroom is about all I can think of if to add anything at all. Thank you also for the late check out. It made our time so much more relaxing and it’s truly appreciated. It is located on a nice quiet spot of beach but less then a ten minute walk to water sports galore. My daughter loved her first surfing experience! Go stay it’s very special and you wont regret it!

My wife and I visited the Long House in Feb for 4 nights and I have to say it is one of the best places we have ever visited. The staff are amazing, the perfect balance between attentiveness and knowing when to leave you in peace. Nothing is ever too much to ask. The building itself is stunning. Tasteful and practical interiors and facilities with very spacious rooms and one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in. The food. Well. Its simply out of this world. Everything is fresh and home made by some seriously talented chefs (might even just be one guy as we only met one). Some other reviews have said the food is a bit pricy, I don’t know if they have adjusted their pricing since, or if the local establishments have upped theirs, but it was only very slightly higher than the beach shacks and local restaurants - for far superior quality. Seriously, don’t even bother eating out. Afternoon tea (served by the pool at 4:30 every day) is a lovely touch and the little treats they serve along side are delicious. I always try and give constructive criticism, but honestly I’m struggling to think of anything. Perhaps the front gate security could be a bit more friendly when you first arrive? But its pretty much the same as everywhere in Sri Lanka. Overall we both loved it and would come back in a heartbeat.

Of all the years of travel and places we have stayed around the world, this is one of the true highlights. Spacious, luxurious, incredibly tasteful, such hospitality and generosity. We loved the architecture of this house, the pool, the vista to the ocean and totally enthralled with the passing trains. The food was superb - can't recommend The Long House highly enough.
