Christmas in Paradise
Rose Villa was tastefully & comfortably furnished, the garden was secure, peaceful & a lovely spot for an evening sundowner. We loved having the option of the pool & the sea, the beach is beautiful to take nice quite walks anytime of the day or evening.
The chef prepared a lovely breakfast each morning & was always available to prepare an evening meal or BBQ at our request. Kanti & Anou keapt the place lovely and clean for us & helped serve any meals that we had, always with a smile & a friendly attitiute. It was lovely having a team of tuk tuk drivers available whenever we wanted to leave our villa, again they were so friendly and helpful.
I can not fault our holiday in beautiful Sri Lanka at all and we will most certainly return to Rose Villa, thank you Dom for making our holiday very special.
This was our first visit to Sri Lanka and after a great two weeks exploring various areas of the Island we spent our last week at Rose Villa. The accommodation was perfect, beautifully furnished with every home comfort. Dom the owner was on call with help and advise and was a charming host. We wanted a place to just relax and we certainly got that here - it was wonderful just to be able to lay around the pool and stroll on the beach. Breakfast was prepared for us every morning by Nimal, who also cooked dinner for us on four occasions - excellent food and extremely reasonable. Do not want to say anything negative about the Villa as we thoroughly enjoyed our stay but would just mention the Villa is located on a busy road and you can hear the traffic noise in the bedrooms - did not bother us but could be a problem if you are a light sleeper, but do not let this put you off booking, just take earplugs!! If every we are back in Sri Lanka we will certainly stay here again.
5* all round
We booked the villa through a friends recommendation as they had been here 6 months previously. It very much surpassed their recommendation. Taxi transfer was arranged for us by the owner at our request, we arrived in a thunderstorm, which we loved, as we live in Qatar and don't see much rain. We weren't expecting the staff to meet us with umbrellas and help with our luggage. On arrival inside the villa we were met with welcome coconut drinks, a full basket of fruit and flowers. We were showed around and I was amazed at how spacious the place was, it was decorated exquisitely also. The staff were amazing, every morning the chef and housekeeper were there at the time we advised. Eggs, croissants, fruit, smoothies were made fresh every morning. You can also request an evening BBQ or meal, which we did on a few nights as we'd been out for the whole day. It was lovely to come back and have the dinner already. Not only was it delicious but it was very reasonably priced considering it's cooked right there in front of you. The food is included in the price you pay too.
The location is great, in-between Galle and Hikkaduwa (sp?) costs about 500/700 rupees each way to these places, but the security at the villa will call a tuktuk for you. The pool and loungers were first class too, the maintenance men come everyday to clean and check the pool.
The bedding was top quality, the bathrooms to die for. Basically you should be getting the message to book this place, you really won't regret it!
Dom the owner is friendly and very helpful, it's also convenient he lives next door! He did advise that though the villa sleeps 8, if can alter the accommodation to suit your needs.
We've been to Thailand and Sri Lanka in the same year and Sri Lanka wins hands down for us.
We'll definitely be back as we still have so much to see.
