We stayed at The Danish Villa during the end of the tourist season in Arugam Bay. This was one of our favourite places in Sri Lanka, lodging wise. The rooms were bright and large, the bathrooms clean and comfortable. The hotel is only a couple minutes away from the beach and really feels like a whole other world. The walkway...

I was picked up at the airport by an awesome driver who made the long journey as comfortable as possible for me we even saw wild elephants on the road which was the highlight of my trip. The room was clean and spacious unfortunately I did pay for a deluxe room and had 2 single mattresses pushed together. The breakfast...

We had a double room with AC in the villa. There is a shared living room with three couches, family games, books and a TV to use for everyone. Our bed is very comfortable for us. You can have breakfast and awesome fresh juices anytime. The staff is very friendly and cares for its guests. Thank you!

Simple but very lovely. It was just like staying in a private house. Nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was plentiful and very tasty. We had our laundry done, tuk tuks arranged, dinners booked, anything we needed was sorted. Very peaceful and restful. We stayed four nights. Wish we had stayed more. Visit Arugam Bay now, I get the feeling...

We stayed here for three nights and wish we had stayed longer. Really peaceful place but brilliantly positioned ... Walking distance to the beach, shops etc. We had the two garden rooms which were great ...lovely to wake up to birdsong! Highly recommended!

We had a lovely 2 night stay at Danish villa: set in the middle of Arugam bay but nicely back from the main road. Lovely communal outside and indoor cool area with games and TV. We stayed in the garden room one night which was gorgeous (although we needed ear plugs for the birds!) and deluxe room the next night...

First of all,Just I want to start by saying that arranging our transportation from Colombo to Arugam Bay through the Danish Villa was the best decision we could have made. The driver was a wonderful driver and got us to the Villa safe and sound. Be prepared for a 6-8 hour drive depending on the traffic. But if you arrive...

We have stayed four days at the Danish villa in Arugambay. It has been a great stay with good service, clean rooms and nice common areas. Another great thing about this place is that there is very quite and very little mouse from the road. Upon arrival we were provided with beach towels and the staff have helped us with...
