Testimonials

We were lucky enough to visit The Villa with friends. They had been recommended it and what a recommendation! The Villa only has 6 rooms, two per floor on 3 floors. The rooms were spacious and very well appointed with a/c and fans. The quality was every bit as good as the big tourist hotels at a fraction of the cost. The staff were very friendly and very efficient. Interestingly most had been there for many years and some since it opened 14 years ago.That must be a good sign. The food was excellent and service couldn't be faulted. Ok it doesn't have a swimming pool, but why would you need that when the Indian Ocean is right in front of it! The sea was gorgeous especially once you got past the pieces of coral washed up on the beach. Wearing coral shoes could be helpful. The ambience round about is wonderful, with lots of little boutiques and shops and for those party goers, Saurday night seems to be disco night! - Jane W Livingston, Scotland, United Kingdom What a relief and refuge from the other somewhat soulless experiences we had. This is one of the best - if not the best - boutique hotels I've ever stayed in. The location is unbeatable and to my mind the best in Unawatuna...you step onto a soft green carpet of lawn from your room, which then leads you onto the beach and into the water. Bliss! The breakfasts are sublime, the staff are personable, engaging, friendly and speak excellent English. The manager is friendly, professional and helpful and there are no hidden, surprise costs when you get your bill. The ambience and its position in the bay make it my firm favourite. I could easily have spent all our days on the beach in front, or in the garden, or in our comfortable room without any need to venture elsewhere. Finally, it is almost right opposite The Sanctuary Spa - the best place to destress in Unawatuna. I will definitely recommend this hotel to others, and should I ever find myself in this region again, it is the only place I will want to stay. - Zelbelle Cape Town
