“A little piece of paradise.. “- Date of stay: April 2019

“Beautiful exotic House. Luxury and pampering in equisirelly decorated surroundings, year round staff team to take care of your every whim, fabulous four-poster beds, an infinity pool, gardens and flowers. Breath-taking.”

“Luxury at its Best” – Date of stay: July 2019

“My friends and I have stayed at this villa a few times over the last few years. Our stays have ranged from long weekends to 10 days. The beauty of the villa cannot be captured in pictures, the beds are very comfortable and every detail of the place make it pure luxury. The staff are very helpful and kind and everyone makes a great effort to make it a memorable stay. I cannot recommend this villa enough! I will be back.”

“Amazing Villa” – Date of stay: December 2019

“We stayed at this house over the Christmas and new year period and it was extremely luxurious and idyllic. The staff was attentive to our needs and they made the stay enjoyable and relaxing. We would definitely be returning and will also be recommending this stunning and perfectly decorated villa to all our family and friends. The owners of the House should be very happy with what they have achieved and the lovely staff they have on board.”

“Family Holiday in Paradise!” – Date of stay: February 2020

The family villa holiday was truly a holiday in Paradise. 5 star plus surroundings with 5 star service . We were a party of 6, children, parents and grandparents and everyone was delighted with their stay! The house is sumptuous – a haven of beauty and tranquility. Samira & Dinesh are just delightful: bright smiles, discreet and run the house beautifully. Chef Naleen spoilt us, catering to all tastes with the best supper around be it Sri Lankan or European. Min the MH Manager is full of great tips for things to do and places to visit and always available. But you could also just spend the entire day in the house and garden to relax and enjoy the beauty of your surroundings to just relax. I cannot recommend this colonial House stay enough. So much love and thought have gone into building this haven of joy and tranquility….

“Absolutely stunning – must stay experience” – Date of stay: January 2020

As soon as you step foot into this property you will be just “wow’d” by how incredible and immaculate this property/experience is. This house is absolutely stunning and has an incredible feeling of openness a relaxation to it. The house’s windows and doors open up allowing a breeze to run through the property keeping it cool throughout the hot Sri Lankan day and incredibly comfortable at night. The pool is lovely to laze around by with a beer and my favourite part – the indoor/outdoor guest room showers which give you that true unique holiday vibe.

Having spent a few nights prior in the crazy city of Colombo it was only by friends’ recommendation that I had to stay at this property and wow what a recommendation – I’m so glad I did. The property is only 5-10mins walk to the nearest beach and maybe 5-10mins by tuk-tuk to the nearest surf beach. It is perfectly situated near enough / yet far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the beachside town Ahangama.

The staff were incredible the in-house chef was amazing (!!!) and Jazmin the house manager made me feel incredibly welcome, safe and organised all of my transportation/tour booking needs.

If you do get the chance, I highly recommend staying here for at least a few nights – it will truly be a memorable chapter to your Sri Lankan holiday experience.
