Value
luxury family home rental in Galle, Sri Lanka . The boutique villa is fully staffed, you will have the same experience as a 5* hotel, with fresh bedding, towels provided, breakfast cooked, bedroom cleaned daily – but with the space and freedom of your own villa. The staff will make sure you have an incredible stay. Our house keeper can cook local cuisine that is simple and elegant giving you a true taste of Sri Lanka. The villa is secluded and built on a headland surrounded by paddy fields (that we own) and tea plantations. You are not overlooked by anyone. The new built villa was heavily influenced by Sri Lankan heritage, and includes all modern facilities and luxury touches you would expect from a luxury stay. We kept the house design simple to let nature in and provide the decoration. The garden landscaping offer simple but classic design. Lots of attention has been spent on the details, lights, tilling... The pool has also been carefully designed to have a natural feel to bring calm and serenity to the centre of the house.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We started our family trip to Sri Lanka at Kumbura for one week, the villa is a tropical paradise. The sound’s first thing every morning are incredible, Bruno, the villa dog, was also a firm favourite. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable and the whole villa is just the most beautiful place we have stayed. However a special mention to Manjula and the staff of Kumbura, they were so attentive and friendly - the food was outstanding and we even had a birthday cake to celebrate a special birthday during our stay. Their kindness all week was a highlight of our trip. We have been trying to get to Kumbura and Sri Lanka for 3 years and neither of them disappointed. We hope to get back again.

This property is one of the most incredible we have ever been to. We arrived during a thunderstorm and were greeted by the beautiful staff with umbrella's and two gorgeous dogs, who kept us entertained. We were completely awestruck by the amazing house. The rooms were beautiful, beds were very comfortable and I felt really safe with mosquito nets around beds. We awoke to the sound of peacocks and were taken captive by the incredible views and position of property. Perched amidst a tropical garden in a field of rice paddies. We had the most incredible time here. The food that the cook made was outstanding. The service, the house, the pool, the gardens, the nature. Monkeys in trees. I highly recommend this place for the most unique experience. We had the best family holiday.

Staying at kumburavilla was one of the best place we ever stayed( and we are used to staying at 5 star hotel ) . The villa is beautifully design with amazing views over the lush paddy fields and so peaceful too. Lots of attention to details ,(beach and towel bags available, toiletries….) and what make this villa a true heaven is the service you get the moment you get out of the taxi , welcome drinks, amazing food, room made daily. Was hard to leave and we will be back for sure….

Great Holiday Villa for a family get away. You can just sit back and relax and enjoy entire holiday with your family in the Villa. Good for a bonding time with family. A nice pool, good food by Aunty Manjula and a great manager Udeshika who would take care of all your needs. A laid back area, away from the busy streets.

What a gem!! Kumbura Villa lived up to and exceeded our expectations (the photos do not do it justice). Our stay was wonderful from Manjula’s exquisite authentic food to the rides to the beach in the Tuk Tuk. I could not believe how close the beach was to the villa and what a beach! The children enjoyed body boarding in the waves and we all loved the pizzas from the beach bar. There is so much to do around Galle, we visited the local temple, took a boat safari on the Koggola Lake and loved shopping at the local markets. We are still talking about the freshly squeezed passion fruit juice at breakfast along with Manjula’s pancakes and fruit. Thank you also to Cecile for being on hand to answer any questions and offering invaluable advice on where to go. We will be back – Thank you!

Kumbura Villa is stunning from all aspects- location, price, food, service, surrounding. This was amazing opportunity to enjoy SHRILANKA! Thanks to all staff and managers- well organised, wide possibility to order anything- even full body massage and cooking lessons 😀 If you wish to be in the jungle but not far from the ocean then KUMBURA VILLA is the perfect place to stay. Only 20 min drive to famous sightseeing spots. Villa is surrounded by beautiful and well maintained garden with wide range of exotic plants such as cinamon, curry, avocado, jackfruit, banana etc. We wish to say huge THANKS to the stuff who take care of guests and Kumbura Villa - super clean- rooms, pool, garden, terraces.

12 days at Kumbura was perfect for our 3 generational family of 4 adults and 3 small kids. First off everything at the villa works, not a blown light bulb, dubious A/C or fan to be found; secondly the space was fantastic, great areas for eating, sitting, sunbathing and the bedrooms were large well equipped and clean, thirdly the staff were truly exceptional, We didn’t eat out at all and Manjula produced breakfast, lunch and dinner for the whole time we were there, her Sri Lankan cuisine was a a revelation. Manjula also organised transport as was needed and Chamera the tuk-tuk driver became the 4 year old’s new best friend. Finally Cecile was fantastic, we had some requests, mainly for the kids, before we travelled and she managed to source them all. It was also great having access to Jack from Eden Villas, he was instrumental in retrieving a bag that Air Lanka had managed to leave in London. All in all hard to beat, maybe not if you want night life every night but otherwise perfect.

Our stay in Kumbura villa was one we will never forget! We were met by the staff with drinks and flower necklaces and then shown around. The villa is slightly in land amongst the rice fields providing a completely private and piece full stay. It’s a short drive to the beach and supermarket, but as food and cooking is all taken care of by Manjula we didn’t have to go anywhere. The food was Amazing (the fried onions especially), would highly recommend requesting rice and curry and letting Manjula do her thing! Having Manjula and Lakshman around was an absolute pleasure, they are so friendly and take such good care of you but doesn’t feel intrusive. The pool is definitely a highlight, with loungers and a covered seating area for those afternoon naps. Massages are available on requests, if your not already relaxed enough. Everything was spotless and has an elegant beauty about it. With WiFi and a generator you have all the benefits of Sri Lanka with out any of the usual difficulties. I can highly recommend Kumbura Villa and would 100% stay again

What a place! Kumbura Villa was everything we wished for, a beautiful villa, tastefully decorated, with amazing jungle & paddy views and a fabulous pool. There was a delicious breakfast every day and we were so warmly welcomed by Mangela and Laksman. We have never rented a fully serviced villa before, only hotels, and here you have the best of both worlds, and it never felt intrusive in any way. The kids absolutely loved it, and even the local Tuc Tuc driver became more of a friend and was so accommodating with all our transport needs to Galle, the local shops, beaches and restaurants. The food was delicious and it was so good to be able to have it made for us in the evening when we did not want to go out. The villa is really well maintained, in perfect condition and the pool really is amazing, and we would highly recommend anyone or any family to stay there.
