About Chris Goacher

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

Why Chris Goacher chose Kamburugamuwa

It was our dream to buy some land , design 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.

Also due to the multi level design of the villa, access is not easy for wheelchairs but the staff in the villa would move wheelchairs around as required.

The villa itself is spacious and comfortable, and the team of staff that take care of you ensure that you have the exact holiday that you want, whether this is going out to explore temples and local towns or just hanging out by the pool. Jill was very responsive and helpful during the whole process from inquiry right throughout our stay and we would highly recommend Nisala as a place to stay. Many thanks to the whole team, Catrin & Philip

                                                                      Stunning place and people

                                                                      Agnieszka S.

                                                                      Nisala Villa is absolutly a small paradise by its own. It is hard to say what is the most precious there. The owner is very friendly and helpfull, always ready to answer any questions and help us in reservation process.

                                                                      The Staff – Shehan is the most professional manager I have met. He guesed and made our wishes come true before we even thought about them. We wish to have more time to check how far his limits goes… Kumari hosted us like a mother and unfortunately, we haven’t eaten better until we left Nisala Vila..The Rest of the Staff masters the art of appearing and disappearing In the only right moments.

                                                                      Villa is genius located. Enough far from civilization to feel like In a desert Island and enough close to buy beer and wine for dinner and go surfing. The smart design of the Villa linked Sri Lanka accents and modern influences. Furthermore, arrangement of rooms is very practical.

                                                                      We fall In love with the Villa and we hope we come back some day again.

                                                                      Nisala Villa in perfect style fulfill the mission: “The pleasure of our clients is our priority”.

                                                                      Stunning villa in a beautiful location

                                                                      Lalitha WeerasingheLondon

                                                                      Our family 8 of us travelled from Uk to spend Christmas at Nisala and had a fantastic holiday very memorable .

                                                                      The villa is in a beautiful location with a lot of greenery and overlooking the ocean , it has easy access to fine beaches , and temples and wild life parks .The upper ocean villa we stayed in is stunning , luxurious ,beautifully designed and decorated, spacious , practical ,comfortable ,, modern with a lovely pool and steps down to the beach .the roof top offers panoramic views and beautiful sunsets

                                                                      The staff were very professional , attentive and were very keen to do everything they could to make us happy and the service we got from then was impeccable .We were thoroughly spoilt

                                                                      We had some delicious home cooked meals ,delicious seafood , a barbecue on the beach ,with a bonfire and fireworks , a life time experience

                                                                      We travelled with two young children aged 4 and 2 so travelling was restricted , but we thoroughly enjoyed just being in the villa and the kids enjoyed the pool, the beach and the cinema .

                                                                      We would highly recommend Nisala which offers a lovely holiday experience in a stunning location .

                                                                      Simply amazing - you won't want to leave!

                                                                      Sarah W.Seattle, WA

                                                                      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

                                                                      Aleksander T.

                                                                      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!

                                                                      Claudia S.

                                                                      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.
