About Chris Goacher

This villa was built by us and "opened" in 2013. We actually built six and sold three of the others to family and friends. We are a British couple living in Hong Kong.

Why Chris Goacher chose South West Sri Lanka

It was our dream to buy some land and construct these villas. My wife Jill is an Architect, I am an electronic engineer and our partner is a Malaysian landscape designer.

What makes this villa unique

Each villa is like a "luxury self contained" boutique style hotel with their own swimming pool, jacuzzi, bar, gym, kitchen etc as well as many other facilities.

Simply amazing - you won't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

It would be hard to top Nisala Villa in Sri Lanka - the villa, setting and view, as well as the staff are all amazing. We had debated whether to stay here or Amanwella, and we could not have been more pleased in selecting Nisala Villa!

Jill, the owner in Hong Kong and also the villa architect, was beyond helpful in planning our stay and her local insights were invaluable in finalizing our itinerary.

There are 4 villas on the property, with the placement and design ensuring privacy. The villas are located up a private winding road that adjoins private temple lands, beyond a gated entry manned by security. I just can't say enough about the villa itself. It is gorgeous, set up from the beach, overlooking the Indian Ocean. The view, sound of the surf and the ocean breezes soothe the soul. You can easily sleep 8-10 and never feel crowded. Each bedroom has its own bath and the living spaces, including outdoors are luxurious and spacious. It was just my husband and I traveling, and we are already plotting our return with close friends.

The staff is top notch. Jerome, the butler provided personalized service and ensured we were welcome and cared for. He confirmed all our local plans the evening before to ensure we were well cared for outside the villa as well. He was assisted by Tharonga who also ensured a fabulous stay, and who provided special touches along the way.

We enjoyed the best meals we had in Sri Lanka, courtesy of their fabulous cook Ramya. We had breakfast and dinners at the villa, where all you need to do is put in a menu request, with dinners having a nominal charge. We requested local cuisine and were not disappointed. I would return to Nisala Villa just to shadow Ramya in the kitchen - it was that good! I believe the housekeeper, Dharshani, also had a hand in our fine dining, while she also ensured the villa was immaculately kept.

Jill offered her car and driver during our stay at only the cost of gas. We have really appreciated Wasantha as a driver and felt safe in his hands amidst the craziness of Sri Lankan roads, from our pick up in Galle to our drop off in Colombo. Wasantha went out of his way on multiple occasions to ensure we were taken care of - even helping us shop for a hopper pan and ingredients. While we were thousands of miles from Seattle, we could not have been made to feel more at home. We stayed 3 nights and only wished we had more time here. Just go - you won't be disappointed and you won't want to leave.

Amazing vacation in Sri Lanka

  • 5 of 5

I and my family have had a wonderful time in Sri Lanka, we have not have enough words to describe this place. We travel 8 adults and 2 kids and everyone has a lifetime of memories, especially the kids who were wonderfully well taken care of by those who worked in the villa

We stayed in this top designer villa with breathtaking views of the Indian Ocean. On the beach you can see sea turtles and watch local fishermen fishing on the seashore.

Jill, Linn, Mr. Shehan and the rest of the staff gave us the best service.

Can strongly recommend Villa Nisala to others.

Thank you!

Amazing! Incredible!

  • 5 of 5

There are not enough superlatives to describe Villa Nisala!

We never ever did expect, that Nisala will be so indescribably beautiful, the pictures can´t even describe. The architecture, the infinity pool, all the details, everything is designed so stylishly and lovingly. The wonderful surrounding and of course the fantastic beach with an awesome view.

We are so grateful to everyone, who has made our stay so amazing. Jerome and his team made our stay unforgettable. Never treated with so much hospitality. We are convinced that they could read our minds. Before we could even make a wish, it came true.

We will greatly miss the delicious food.

We would like to thank Jill for giving us the opportunity to experience all that.

Don't think, just book!

  • 5 of 5

I’m not sure there are enough superlatives to describe this villa or our time there: it is an absolute gem.

Design-wise, the overall aesthetic is stunning and feels as though it is from the pages of a glossy magazine. The main entrance to the villa is via stepping-stones over a small fishpond (complete with goldfish and a resident turtle). This leads to a wide stairway, which cascades all the way down to the infinity pool at the ground floor of the villa – and the stunning sea vista.

The rest of the villa is equally gorgeous: stylish cement floors, open-air rain showers, a rooftop garden. Someone has clearly taken great care in all the little details too, from a telescope for stargazing on one of the many balconies to the beautiful artwork all over the villa.

Every night, we were lulled to the sleep by the sound of the waves in our luxurious beds and were woken up in the morning with fresh, strong coffee and yummy breakfast courtesy of the villa’s cooks.

If you get tired of languorous afternoons in and by the infinity pool, there is private access to the quiet beach down a private staircase at the side of the villa. Alternatively, the famous Mirissa Beach stretch is only a 20-minute tuktuk ride away, where we spent an evening enjoying fresh seafood and chilled beers and Galle is an hour's car journey away, where we spent an afternoon exploring the city's fortress walls and little backstreets.

What made this stay perfect was the impeccable service provided by Chatura, the villa’s manager, and his team. Attentive without being obtrusive, he catered to our group's every whim. One night he organised a traditional Sri Lankan dance performance in the villa and on one morning, had a man scrambling up the villa’s palm trees to provide us with fresh coconuts and coconut water for breakfast.

In short, I don’t think I’ve ever had a more wonderful holiday – it was incredibly hard to leave. We will certainly be back!

Perfect Perfect Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed as a group of 10 for a friend's 30th birthday weekend and it could not have been more perfect.

The design of the villa is beautiful, the entrance over the stepping stones and down the outdoor staircase really makes you feel like you are descending into a tranquil little haven and have escaped from the world for a little while.

The bedrooms and bathrooms all had the wow factor, each with their own little bit of private space, be it a courtyard or terrace. In fact there were places all around the villa where you could find yourself a little space to enjoy the scenery and tranquility. There was equally plenty of space for us all to comfortably sit and socialise together, it’s rare that you get the best of both worlds in a holiday rental.

The infinity pool with the view out to sea is amazing! Even the floating chairs were the most comfortable I’ve sat on! Sitting in the pool, looking out over the coconut groves at the turtles in the sea, I had one of those moments where you need to pinch yourself to check that it’s actually real.

The staff were so welcoming and really couldn't do enough to make sure we were comfortable and enjoyed ourselves as much as possible. Not only were they super efficient whenever we asked for anything, they also anticipated our needs and made some great suggestions. Their finest hour had to be their torchlit bbq complete with entertainment by local dancers, all arranged at only a few hours notice - which was a perfect birthday celebration for our friend. The villa owner even sent a cake and bubbly to add to the celebrations which was such a lovely gesture.

Throughout our stay, if we ever wanted to go anywhere, do anything, eat anything, all we had to do was ask and it was taken care of. When we set out one afternoon for a (very long!) walk to Mirissa along the beach, Chatura even gave us a mobile phone to take with us in case we needed him... and called to check that we had arrived safely. I can't express enough how much these guys care that your holiday is as perfect as it can be, yet they manage that perfect balance where the attentiveness doesn’t become intrusive.

There just aren't enough superlatives to describe how special this villa and its staff are... In a nutshell, if you want to go away with a large group, worry about nothing, and be looked after by people who genuinely care about your holiday, you really can't go wrong.

I left with a lump in my throat... highly recommend!

An idyllic retreat

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated a friend's 30th birthday here on our first visit to Sri Lanka - our stay couldn't have been better.

The villa is beautifully designed and the location is stunning, it's an ideal retreat for groups of friends or families. Prepare to feel your jaw drop as you walk down the steps and take in the views.

Chathura, the manager, is very warm and welcoming. In fact, the service we got was beyond that of a 5* hotel, with someone always on hand to cater to every whim. His team organised for us a delicious BBQ with a traditional Sri Lankan performance on our first night, which is a must for anyone who visits. The next morning we were treated to freshly chopped coconuts with breakfast. We ate at the villa most of the time and the ladies in the kitchen did a truly brilliant job.

Beyond the ocean views and palm trees, the most beautiful aspect of this villa is its sense of community. All the (many) staff who work here take real pride in their job and this is reflected in the high standard of service. You really notice that this isn't just another posh Sri Lankan villa for holidaymakers, it's a home-from-home to all.

Will definitely be going back.
