We stayed for five days in January 2017. The owners were away and although the general manager was extremely helpful we sat on our own as often as not in the bar each evening before going in to dinner. One minor nigggle, I enjoy a small beer before we eat but beer came in one litre bottles and nothing smaller....

Thank you for staying with us. There were a few things in your review that surprised me and I am keen to clarify. When you stayed with us there was heavy rain and so the sea was rough. We have trained lifeguards on duty and they advise all our guests of the prevailing conditions. We take the safety of our...

We just love Reef Villa and Spa and returned again to be able to relax and be pampered. We stayed in Sapumal again and it felt like I was coming home. The staff are friendly and welcoming and unobtrusive. It's peaceful and private. The Plantation House has a veranda facing the lily ponds and to sit there quietly and watch...

We visited the Reef in December2015 and loved it so much we had to return. Our hosts Brendan and Bernadette make it feel like coming home. Every one every where should visit this Hotel. We have travelled world wide, but this is still one of my favourites.

The main house is a modern building decorated with thousands of antique authentic colonial and local treasures within a jazzy sound design. Each detail is taken care of with the greatest care. We stayed at the beach room with the romantic canopy bed. The staff is perfectly trained. The beach is short and clean and the gentle safety guard will...

After having spent a very hectic week in Singapore The Reef Villa was the perfect antidote. The staff were so friendly and attentive and nothing was too much bother for them. The room was something out of Arabian Nights and to walk out of the room onto the lawn and stroll through the palm trees down to the sea was...

Thank you for your second recent review and for staying with us. We know you wished to access your suite on arrival early morning but I reiterate we were unable to offer you early check in, as we were fully booked. This was explained several times by email to you prior to arrival. Regardless you still arrived early and we...

This was our sixth and final destination in our return visit to Sri Lanka. The moment we arrived, I knew that we had saved the best until last. The grounds and rooms had been so cleverly designed; a plethora of South Indian antiques removed one immediately from the C20th and C21st, The food is delicious, the Spa magnificent, the staff...
