Thank you for everything. We have been very impressed by the standing of this house. We enjoyed the service and the very good food home made by a very good chef. Everybody was very nice and our stay was memorable.
We have all greatly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful serene place. The staff have been quite exceptional – going above and beyond to make our stay a memorable one. We will all have very lovely memories of our time spent here and hope that perhaps that one day we may return again with our extended family. Love and best wishes to everyone
39 Galle Fort you exceeded our expectations – we loved it. Mark and staff were so welcoming and service was fantastic. Thank you Nuwan for your excellent meals. We will definitely be recommending this beautiful villa as a perfect place to stay in Galle.
“Ani Villa is truly special. We traveled 2 weeks in Sri Lanka and finished the trip with 5 blissful nights at Ani. The property is gorgeous, private, and well situated for activities nearby (although there are plenty of activities right on sight to keep you busy and/or not busy if you just want to chill!) The best part is the staff.. they are endearing, warm and caring in a way I’ve never experienced at a hotel or villa. They anticipate your every need and want, they go way above and beyond what is expected (even if you are used to Butler service!), and they surprise you constantly with lovely gestures that make you never want to leave. I was teary eyed when we left! We went with our family of 4 (kids age 8 and 11). They were wonderful with the kids and at one point told my husband and I to go enjoy our evening, they would look after the kids! Chef Cyril is awesome, very creative and I warn you he loves to feed his guests! Husband and I are vegan, and kids like kids stuff (burgers etc) and he accommodated us all too well! I can go on and on but some of the magic is in the surprise of how well they take care of the guests so I will leave it at that. If you have the chance to stay here, it is a must! Oh and the more the merrier here…we would absolutely love to come back with lots of family. So much fun!”
“We had a wonderful experience in your beautiful country and enjoyed our stay at Skye House immensely.
When we arrived we were concerned that the villa was so close to the main road. However, once the gates were closed we were in a different world!
The villa was ideal for our large family and whilst being a little tired in places was well set out and helped make our vacation. The setting was fantastic with the ocean and beach literally at our back door!
Without a doubt, the major factor contributing to our wonderful vacation was the staff of Skye House who to a person was EXCELLENT, very attentive and always smiling! They looked after us superbly and were very good with the babies.
The only comment I would make would be regarding gratuities for the staff. I had no real indicator as to what was an appropriate gratuity and how it should be distributed. Having never visited your country before we were uncertain as to the correct protocol in this regard and I hope our subsequent distribution was well-received?
All in all a super holiday and we would have no hesitation in recommending the site and returning in the future.”
“We had a great time at Villa Suriyawatta. We spent a week with our family (8 members, ages ranging from 3 months to 80 years old). The villa itself is gorgeous and well located with an almost private beach. Rooms and living areas are spacious, clean and nicely decorated, with a lot of books to help you travel further in your mind.
The beautiful garden is kids friendly and very well taken care of along with the perfectly sized swimming pool with stunning views on the sunset. It attracts visitors such as peacocks early morning and friendly monkeys in the late afternoon, not to mention the lizards and other colorful birds.
Sanjeeva’s team (the villa personnel) is helpful and working hard to make sure guests spend the best possible time. The chef adapted the menu with suggestions to help us discover local dishes from breakfast to dinner, all our meals were of high quality. Although Sanjeeva was extremely helpful with villa logistics and with organizing several day trips, having a booklet listing things to do in and outside the villa would have probably made this experience perfect.
The Suriyawatta team are very professional and I would definitely recommend the villa.”
“Welcome to Sri Lankan paradise. Meda Gedara must be the most hidden gem in Sri Lanka. This place really is like no-where else. A sophisticated, spacious villa which sits elevated among landscaped gardens, tropical plants overlooking layers of swimming pools and tall shady palms down to the picture perfect, unspoiled coastline. From peaceful walks along the miles of deserted beach to lying by the beautiful pool, or simply swinging in the shady hammocks sipping straight from a coconut or on a cocktail, it has everything to help you kick back and relax. Competitive and adrenaline fuelled activities are never far away. From cricket on the cleverly designed cricket field to sliding down the water shoot, twisting your way through the rocks and plants, before plunging into the splash pool at great speed is enough to get your heart racing for hours on end. The architecture and interior fuses British luxury with intricate local craftsmanship. The sound of rolling waves on the beach, gentle breeze through the palms and the most magical of sunsets makes Meda Gedara a special and unique paradise. “
“Amazing facilities, beautiful rooms, great pool and grassed area for children. Beautiful views of the ocean.
The staff here are beyond compare, so friendly and always there to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Chef makes you never want to leave with fantastic food just how you like it.
Very highly recommended”
