We had the most perfect holiday at Villa Five. I cannot recommend this villa enough. We were an extended family group of 8 people aged 16 months to 70 years and the property was absolutely brilliant for us.
The Villa itself is stunning. It's incredibly light and airy with most of the back of the house open to the elements making you feel as though you live on the beach. There are so many separate spaces and areas that even if you're in a big group like we were you don't feel on top of each other at all. The staff were so, so good. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they sorted everything out for us that we asked for. We felt incredibly relaxed and pampered the whole week long. The food is simply divine!
The location is also amazing. 30 seconds walk down to the beach and then 5 minutes along the sand to a calm lagoon that is just brilliant for young children. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance and Unatwatuna is only a 5/10 minute Tuk Tuk away.
All in all this was a truly memorable holiday for us and we will definite be back!
A big THANK YOU to Danielle, Matt and the entire team at Villa Five for allowing us to host and celebrate our wedding at this amazing Villa. We can not recommend Villa Five highly enough. It was the perfect halfway meeting point for our Australian and Welsh families. From our initial contact with Danielle all the way through to the final details of our wedding, everything was super organised! The Villa itself is superb and the location is excellent. Only 2 minutes down the beach is a beautiful safe lagoon to swim and snorkel and even a small wave to surf. The Villa is picturesque. We were blown away when we walked into the Villa at 5am......it was stunning. The staff at Villa five could not be more helpful or friendly. Nothing was ever too much trouble for the team, from organising transfers, day trips to recommending places to eat. A huge thank you to Suranga, Dinesh, Kule, Jagith and Chef Dasun. It is easy to say that the staff really made this holiday extra special for us. A highlight for us was organising a cricket match with the Villa Five staff and local tuk tuk drivers. It was so much fun! Chef Dasun is an exceptional chef and would be fair to say that we had some of the best meals eating in! This was our first visit to Sri Lanka and we fell in love with the place. Thank you once again Danielle and Matt. Our families and friends can not stop talking about our amazing holiday. Our mother in laws have now decided to make this a regular meeting spot for our two families. We can't wait to stay here again (and to see the Villa Five team!). Narelle & Tony
We had a fabulous time at Villa Five - I would highly recommend it for large groups! The staff were all lovely and very attentive, the villa itself was very spacious, well kept, super comfortable beds and great views of the sea from the balconies.
Easy tuk tuk ride into Galle, Unawatuna, and a nice beach bar / restaurant walking distance along the beach.
The kids (there were 7 in our group) had a great time playing in the pool, playing handball, cricket on the lawn, fossicking on the beach out the front and looking for / swimming with the local turtles! The staff cooked great kids dinners every night - such a treat for us to sit back and relax.
Food was great, and nothing was too much trouble for the staff who went out of their way including cooking two birthday cakes for us, decorating the villa with balloons for my daughter's birthday, and organising fireworks on the beach for us, booking babysitters, organising touring vans at short notice, the list goes on.
Apart from a minor hick up with transfers from Columbo on arrival, everything went super smoothly!
Sri Lanka is a great place for families to visit and staying at Villa 5 made it relaxing for everyone. Friendly, safe, fun, interesting!
My family and I absolutely loved our 8 day stay at the gorgeous Villa 5. The interior of the villa is a design heaven and every creature comfort has been considered, with both care and flair, making it a stylish abode that appeals to both adult and child. Our spacious rooms had the most divinely comfortable beds and the bathrooms, both the inside ones and outside ones were a complete treat. Each room had a spacious covered balcony, which was perfect if you needed a quiet shady place, whilst still making the most of being outside and of course taking in the breathtaking views of the Indian ocean. There are thoughtful touches everywhere, excellent amenities and the staff are incredibly welcoming and attentive - being always near but never hovering. The pool and outdoor areas are wonderful places to relax during the day and the children spent many delightful hours swimming and cooling off. The food at Villa 5 is delicious, so much so that we ate most of our meals here. The dinners were outstanding both for their value and their taste and their portions were definitely very generous.
There are plenty of excursions available from the hotel and Galle itself is a great place to explore but in all honesty, we didn't feel the need to move far and daily walked just 5 minutes from the villa to a beautiful and safe lagoon, where we relaxed and had fun. Location, location, location......
Thank you Villa 5 for having us stay. We had a wonderful time x
We recently visited Villa 5 on the beautiful southern coast of Sri Lanka. The setting and location is second to none. The villa itself is the epitome of taste with beautiful attention to detail (bed linens, layout etc) with a feel of luxury throughout. However what further elevates this property is the great team of staff who are fabulous with every need catered for with a smile.
The food and menu offered are delicious and we were also lucky enough to have a cooking class with the chef which was fun and informative.
Location is perfect. The villa is as beautiful as it gets. With direct access to a beautiful beach.
Staff is very friendly and well trained to help you in anything you need.
Food was very good as well.
What a place! Everything has been thought of here, staff are amazing, food quality and choice extensive and beautiful interiors.
The villa was beyond expectations, with HUGE rooms and bathrooms, masses of outdoor space, DIRECT access onto the beach and close to restaurants, bars etc.
Cannot recommend this place enough!
