We stayed here for 6 days and we could not have picked anywhere more perfect. There are so many villas to choose from and it took us ages to decide but from the moment we arrived we knew we'd made the right choice - Ambalama is by such a wide margin the coolest villa on the beach. There were only two of us so they gave us a great rate, and the owner and staff were absolute gems. Service is slow but sweet and the pace of life is so laid back here that you feel you've gone into slow motion - the perfect relaxation holiday. The villa is impossible to describe - the pool and the beach and the view and the sunsets - it's a little piece of heaven. We spent almost every evening at Wijaya Beach bar, which is just a hop skip and a jump over some rocks and is the nicest bar in the area. It was our anniversary and they presented us with a bottle of moet to say congrats - which was very much appreciated! Everyone here goes the extra mile, and it's the perfect place to stay. Cannot imagine there is anywhere better in Sri Lanka. Possibly not anywhere.
