“amazing stay!”
Reviewed 25 February 2013 for a stay in February 2013

I'm still on a high, batteries fully charged and soo relaxed after visiting Sri Lanka. Not only is it a beautiful place, with such lovely people. But I had the pleasure of staying in wonderful Villa Golden. No need to worry about anything, as their service just goes way beyond just renting a house!
It's starts with an easy pick up from the airport, their driver waiting for you with a big smile. No hassle finding your way etc... You arrive at the villa, where the staff is waiting for you. Nicely decorated, 3 bedrooms, all the space in the world. You go to the patio, where you discover a HUGE garden, looking out on the beach, which is so quiet, you have it to yourself most of the day and then you have the pleasure of watching the fisherman hauling in the catch of the day.
Whatever I needed, it was taken care of. Just tell the cook, whatever you feel like eating, WHEN you want it and take the toughest decision of the day: Should we have breakfast at the beach? Or on the patio? Tough choices... ;-)
The house is cleaned every day, no bugs, etc... A great plus is the inhouse tuk tuk, which will bring you anywhere you need to be.
I had the most relaxing massage EVERY day, enjoying the relaxing sounds of the waves. As everything is so affordable, you can have it all :
I went diving, took surfing lessons and explored Sri Lanka. Again all reserved and arranged by the sweetest staff. They make you laugh, are there when you need them, but in no means disturb your privacy. They know all the good places to go and will get you the best table in any restaurant :-)
There's just so many things to do, but at the same time, if you feel like doing nothing? That's ok too ;-)
I enjoyed taking a dip in the pool, had a mani/pedi, even the hairdresser stopped by the house to shave my friends beard ;-)) I also had private yoga lessons, which was an amazing experience.
I could go on and on, but let's just say: Villa golden, was in fact : GOLDEN

“Everything is perfect!”
Reviewed 1 February 2013 for a stay in January 2013

Villa Golden is wonderful!!! We had such a great holiday!!! Everything is perfect: the house, the garden, the pool, the beach!
And about staff - they are fantastic! They really made us feel at home!
Pushba is a first-class cook. I think that she would be an ornament for any expensive restaurant. And she is so kind and nice)
Sosantha and Roshan were very helpful and attentive.
I'm sure that when we are going to Sri Lanka again, we will choose Villa Golden. And I hope that we are going to)
And I will recommend Villa Golden to all my friends.

“The most amazing place in the world”
Reviewed 23 January 2013 for a stay in December 2012

I have never had such an amazing holiday experience in my life! Stayed over Christmas with my wife and 4 year old daughter and loved it more than I could ever put into words. Beautiful villa, unbelievable garden right on the beach. The staff are the best I have ever known. It's personal service and I feel like they are part of my little family. Pushpa cooks the best food I have ever tasted (best we had there hands down) and by the time we left I had a book full of recipes, she is a real jewel. Susantha just sorts everything out. Any thing you want, it's done, anything you need, it's there. To be honest he's pretty much thought of it before you have. Roshan is the man. You want to eat out? He knows the best place. You want a cool bar? He knows the best place. Want to try real Sri Lankan street food? He can get you the best you have ever tasted. We played cricket on the beach on New Years Day and was invited to play football with the locals too. The local fishermen are friendly and watching the boats go out on some pretty big waves makes a perfect sun down with a Lion Beer. The pool was the nicest I have ever been in and felt like swimming in cream the water was so cool and fresh and all encompassing. Basically it was an overwhelmingly amazing time. We will be back!

Management Response

Current problems were solved last September by an electrician. So: no worries!
Our fantastic houseboy Susantha has been instructed to pick up pieces of rubbish each morning. And now the beach is really very clean!
