The Villa Exotica
Ranked #77 of 166 Speciality Lodging in Colombo
Reviewed 23 January 2014

I spent just one night of a week stay at this place in Dec. 2013. Finding the place was a problem. It's located in an area away from main Colombo. The 2 cows, mangy dog and the stagnant water in the open drain should have tipped me off. The villa was beautiful but since it's an open plan the mosquitoes are relentless. The black ants that make a trail in the toilet (even after cleaning the toilet) was a downer. The location, the mosquitoes and the ants made me rush away the next morning. If you can put up with these irritations, the villa itself is beautiful with lovely furniture.

BTW sleeping in the bottom bunk is hot since the fan cooling does'nt get to the bottom bunk.

My family just spent a week in this lovely villa, with excellent facilities and very helpful owners who live right next door. Two bedrooms are excellent, with cold aircon and comfortable beds. The third bedroom is small with bunk beds, which would suit children, not adults. Overall the villa is stylish and comfortable, located in a leafy suburb of Colombo near the Parliament building. Local taxis take half an hour to the Fort area of Colombo for shopping and eating out. Overall it was a very enjoyable experience, apart from the humidity!

Our group of five stayed at the Villa for two nights over New Years. The property is lovely - very spacious, nice lounge area leading out to the garden, very private. Every room has its own ensuite. The owner lives in the property next door so he popped by to say hello and gave us advise re exploring Colombo - it was very nice of him.

The only slight problem one may find is that the location of the Villa is a bit out of the way from the main CBD of Colombo. So unless you have a car/driver, it would be hard to get around. The property provides accommodation for the driver as well - to make it more convenient. On NYE we did not have our driver in the evening and as a result it was hard for us to get something to eat. The takeaway places were not delivering that night (this probably only happens in NYE) and it was a nightmare trying to find a taxi. But if you have your driver staying on site the whole time it that would not be a problem.

Thank you for a great stay!

Room Tip: Best to share the property with a larger group of friends.
