About Sonali

South Point Villa was built as the our beach holiday home.

Although it was built in 2004 we purchased antique doors and window dating back to the British and Dutch period, when they ruled Sri Lanka. All details have been looked into. Staying at South Point Villa and South Point Abbey is like staying in a Sri Lankan home with an excellent and personalized service by staff who has been in the family for many years.

South Point Abbey was a 200 year old house walls built with coral beautifully restored. The clay tiles are the original old tiles which are very cooling to the feet.

The owners live in Colombo with their two sons.

Why Sonali chose Kathaluwa

The owners fell in love with the location and knew this was the perfect spot to built their dream holiday home. The beautiful coral formation in the sea and soft golden sandy beach was perfect.

What makes this villa unique

Staying at South Point Villa and South Point Abbey would be like staying in your own private beach holiday home. You will have the privacy you require. The beach is lovely and not crowded. There are only two beach villas on this stretch and a few fishing boats. The fishing season is from Oct to April only. Thru out the year the sea is lovely for swimming. Beach restaurants 15 minutes away.

The best place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The South Point villa is absolutely the best place to stay in Sri Lanka.

The house is very beautifull, huge rooms and is surrounded with a nice garden, the beach and the pool. For the children it was great to have the beach and a big pool, good for hours of fun! We made a lot of excursions to Galle, turtle hatchery, temples and went for safari's. For us, a family with three children it was the best place. The very friendly staff made our two weeks at South Point fantastic and we would very much like to come back!

The perfect place to relax and be spoilt

  • 5 of 5

South Point Villa was a magical place to stay. The location - right on the beach - was fabulous, the villa was extremely clean and comfortable and it and the grounds were all very well maintained. All the arrangements in advance were handled very efficiently by the owner, with quick response times to all questions. The staff were the icing on the cake and made the whole experience very special. Whilst most of them had limited English, the manager and (excellent) chef were always on hand to translate if necessary and they were all so helpful and caring. They made particular efforts to make sure my 50th birthday was very special. If you're looking for a luxurious place to be pampered and looked after, look no further. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this friends and family.

Relaxing family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 8 nights with our 3 children all aged under 5. South Point Abbey is a beautiful villa, with stunning views and attentive, yet un-intrusive staff. The villa was well appointed and comfortable for all of us, the garden was great for small children as was the pool, and beach access was easy. The staff were extremely helpful, considerate and were great at helping out with the children -nothing was too much trouble. The food was excellent and the chef was very good at making sensible recommendations based on our needs. Suggested excursions were very appropriate and fun. The villa and scenery are beautiful, but the staff really make South Point Abbey, the soon understood our routines and requirements and met our needs before we realised we needed something. Our children loved the villa, its gardens and animals and the staff. We had a very relaxing and peaceful time there and would recommend to young families, couple, anyone wanting a relaxing time to enjoy each other's company

Stunning place for a completely relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful holiday. The location was absolutely amazing - just a few steps from the front lawn onto a gorgeous beach where we hardly saw anyone else apart from a few fisherman for the whole 12 days we were there.

The house was brilliantly designed and decorated in an extremely stylish way.

A reef protected the beach which meant that the wonderfully warm sea was perfect for us and our 2 year old daughter to swim in. As was the swimming pool with its wonderful sea views. The photos on the website do not do justice to the beautiful setting.

The service was brilliant - always there when you needed anything but not at all in the way when you didn't. They were brilliant with our daughter.We are widely travelled and have never experienced such fantastic hospitality.

The food was stunning - the chef cooked separate meals for our toddler and then amazing meals for us once she had gone to bed. It was a real highlight of the holiday.

They organised a few excellent trips for us - but the main point of the holiday for us was relaxation - we spent most of our time just enjoying the wonderful villa.

We cannot wait to return to South Point

Absolutely the best place in Sri Lanka

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at South Point Villa so much that we actually tried to cancel our stay at the Fortress Hotel, which is the best hotel on the island, and very close by. Having staying at the Fortress Hotel for a few nights - which was also great- we came back to the villa on our last day in Sri Lanka and were treated like family on our return. The staff in the house are so nice and helpful, always looking for ways to please your stay. We cannot recommend the house enough for everybody, both families with children and older people.

Trips were arranged from the house, worth to mention was the trip to the tea factory, where we tasted different teas and were able to buy the rare white tea. Also our trip to a national park on a safari to see elephants was very exciting, almost to exciting if you ask our 10 year old boy, the big elephants got very close to the vehicle.

We hope to be back in Sri Lanka, and if we do, we will not think twice - we will come back to South Point Villa. Regards to everybody at the villa from the Moller family from Denmark

Return Visit

  • 5 of 5

We have just had our second stay at South Point. This time we stayed in the Villa, which is the property which adjoins the Abbey. The villa is very upmarket, with wonderful bedrooms and bathrooms,but for us the most amazing thing is the verandah. It is here you can sit and watch the waves, eat breafast, read, sip on a cool drink watching the sunset, then dine on a delicious meal.The staff look after you in every way possible and even anticiapte your needs.During our stay in December the sea infront of the villa was calm and warm and perfect for snorkelling and swimming. We would thoroughly recommend this experience over a hotel. It iwould be an excellent property for a large family, as they could spread across the two properties .Thanks Sonali for sharing your lovely house!
