“Authentic in concept, Sri Lankan luxury”
Reviewed 16 February 2019 for a stay in February 2019

We have not really stayed anywhere quite like this before, except in Europe. The villa is located in a busy street, about a 5 minute tuk tuk ride into Galle. When you arrive there is a high wall and feature gate and drive, behind which is a stunning villa, open and airy and adorned with lovely furniture and animal carvings. The garden is beautiful and attended to by a gardener who lives on site just away from the villa at the rear. Your host, Sampath is regularly on site to clean, wash up, cook for you if needed and generally cater for all of your needs. It is a truly different expereince staying here and you might have to get used to a bit of wildlife scurrying around and the occasional family of monkeys swinging in the trees. The bedrooms are authentic and charming with mosquito nets and a/c - the overall feel to parts of the villa is of smooth concete and perhaps some tiling to bathrooms or the rear seating area would have been nice. Don't be under any illusion this is a lovely place and please give it a try, it is really lovely - the pool is jst perfect if you want a morning lazing around. Thank you Sampath.
