This is a beautiful villa and the husband and wife (Jayentha and Bianca) take a lot of trouble to make your stay a great one. They took us to the Parahera festival and Bianca's food was delicious!

“Fantastically delicious food!”
Reviewed 22 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

As I have a lot of food intolerances (including to spicy food) and a sensitive stomach, I was extremely nervous about visiting Sri Lanka which is known for spicy curries. Villa Tanjuro's managing couple (a husband-wife team who cook/clean/garden) provided an astoundingly delicious non-spicy meal for us all. I was completely blown away since I have been accustomed to rather bland food whenever cooks remove the spicy element from their dishes. My absolute favourites was the mango chutney, sweet and bursting with flavour and the chicken, tastily delicious.

While the villa is quaint, relaxing and a mere stone's throw away from the pretty beach, the definite highlight for me was the delectable cuisine whipped up so quickly by the villa's 'chef'.

“Feel at home! Tranquil and taken care of by the lovely mangement staff at this cozy Villa, minutes from the beach.”
Reviewed 7 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

A great place to stay with family and friends. We felt safe and relaxed here, amongst a little Sri Lankan village by the ocean.

“A private oasis, minutes away from the beach, supported by wonderful staff.”
Reviewed 23 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Villa Tanjuro is ideal for anyone looking for a private oasis. Ideal for a couple, families and small groups. The property itself is definitely has a Caribbean and Sri Lankan feel that is up to date, comfortable and very clean. The grounds are kept immaculate and beautifully groomed. The outdoor courtyard area, swimming pool and lounging deck is an area you can definitely get comfortable, get a great tan and relax all day in.

However, if you want to take a little stroll - take a three to five minute walk to an amazing beach. The setting is beautiful and very private. Tip - if it's high tide, make sure you keep your towels and sarongs hung on the bamboo fence that edges the beach or it may get swept away. We had a couple of laughs, running after some of our flip flops.

The bedrooms are all air conditioned and very comfortable. The kitchen has a nice lay out and is run by one of the best cooks in Sri Lanka. Priyanka greeted us with the most amazing avocado and mango ice cream smoothies and cakes. Lunches would consist of chicken curries, red rice, homemade mango chutney, assorted vegetables etc. etc. I can with confidence say that your meals will be outstanding and made by a sweet, shy and beautifully spirited woman. She is the wife of the property manager, Jayentha. You could tell straight away my his smile and eyes, that he is a wonderful person who takes great pride of his role in making Villa Tanjuro run so beautifully.

Overall, you will not be disappointed. Everything from about this place is wonderful. I would recommend this place with no hesitations. Can't wait to come back soon.
