Villa Asmara is located on the most desirable stretch of beach on the south coast in an area of sensational luxury villas, boutique hotels, spas, and other amenities.
The villa consists of a large upstair suite with a grand ocean view and 2 ground floor rooms all with air conditioning. It is located right on the beach with a spacious beach garden with a pool and is very child friendly.Separate dining areas, sitting room with TV and complimentary WIFI are provided. Several good quality restaurants are in the vicinity..
It was lovely for our family of two grandparents, the parents and two young kids. 10 min to Unawatuna beach by tuktuk. Perfect rest with very friendly attentive housekeeper and cook.
A wonderfully located villa, fairly priced but in need of some updating and maintaining. Villa Asmara is situated in a truly wonderful location directly on the beach front approximately 4 km south of the lovely coastal resort of Unawatuna. Direct beach access is available and whilst it is not recommended to swim directly in front of the villa, swimming beaches are available just a short walk away. The gardens of Asmara are beautifully kept and the pool is a delight at the end of a hot day out. Villa Asmara is notably cheaper than other villas on this stretch of the coast and the reasons for this become clear on arrival. The villa is tired and dated and in need of some modernisation and maintenance. Whilst generally the house and bathrooms are of an acceptable standard, the kitchen for us was not and it made us change our plans to utilize a local cook and instead we opted to dine out each night in some of the many excellent nearby restaurants.
Villa Asmara is advertised as a 3 bedroom villa but in reality only one of these rooms in within the confines of the house. The other two are effectively in a self contained annex attached to the property. For families with older teenage children this might be acceptable but those with younger children may not feel happy with this arrangement and will probably do as we did which was to have the children in the main bedroom suite with them. Customer service for Villa Asmara has been first class from start to finish. The property manager was prompt to respond to all my questions and provided everything I had asked for. Transport arrangements to and from the airport to the villa were excellent and the house staff did everything in their power to make us feel very welcome.
Villa Asmara s ideally placed for visits to the nearby fort town of Galle and the beach resort locations of Unawatuna and Merissa both of which are highly recommended. Nearby great locations to eat include, Thalpe Beach Club, Wijaya Beach and the Aqua club. Yatagala temple is nearby too and well worth a visit. In summary, we had a very enjoyable holiday at Villa Asmara and its location is its true highlight. We would recommend the location to friends but would ensure that they are aware of the bedroom arrangements if they had younger children. The villa is fairly priced given its location and current condition. If we were to return to the area we would probably choose to pay more for a different villa in a better decorative condition.
