“When can we go back?”
Reviewed 15 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

I have just come back from a fantastic two weeks at Surangana Villa - quite possibly the most beautiful and relaxing place to be on holiday. For the first week I was joined by family (including my one year old nephew, who was looked after immaculately, they have a lovely cot and high chair and were happy to make any food for him) and the second week by a group of friends. The villa itself is stunning and only a short tuk tuk ride to some wonderful beaches for swimming and surfing and of course Galle Fort for a bit of culture and shopping. There is a mass of space at the Villa with some wonderful bedrooms and plenty of outdoor living. Two swimming pools provide plenty of variety, both with infinity edges looking out over the jungle. Most days we were joined by monkeys swinging around between trees – it felt like our very own safari park! We were looked after beautifully by Manoj and his team. Nothing was too difficult - the moment we felt thirsty someone would miraculously appear to offer a glass of lime and soda, rose or a Lion beer! The food was absolutely delicious and there was a lot of variety. We even enjoyed a cooking lesson – learning to make Sri Lankan curry and string hoppers – we will be attempting to recreate these in London quite soon but I have a feeling they will not be up to the same standard! Everything else was so easy – Manoj booked our tuk tuks, beach towels were produced and whisked away at the end of the day for washing, he organised our restaurant bookings for the occasional lunch or dinner out and joined in enthusiastically in our table tennis and card games. We were utterly spoilt. A huge thank you to the whole team – we will hopefully be back soon!

“Holiday of a lifetime!”
Reviewed 19 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

This was our first visit to Sri Lanka but not the last for sure! Contact was made early with Mr Mike then Manoj at Surangana to ensure we had everything we needed for our holiday. From the moment we stepped off the plane at Colombo we were made to feel welcome and the luxury of the trip began. There were refreshments for us on the bus and when we arrived at the villa the staff greeted us warmly. We were a large group with children and the staff had breakfast ready for us.

I cannot speak highly enough of the staff and how they went out of their way to make our stay memorable. By the end of the trip they instinctively knew what we wanted. Manoj organised everything we needed from food and meals, Park safaris, fishing trips, whale watching... We even had a tattoo artist come to the villa.

The place itself is a magical spot. Set in park like surroundings. Monkeys and other wildlife in the trees. Beautiful pools and comfortable rooms. It would have been possible to have spent the whole time at the villa. We didn't need to eat out as the food at Surangana was exceptional!

I know I can speak for the others in our large party when I say it was the best holiday ever.
A big thanks to the whole team!

Rachael that is so nice of you to write such a glowing review, especially as its so soon after you have left the villa. We really try to make it a home from home so that guests feel relaxed from the minute they arrive, so seeing such positive feedback, especially from such a large party, is invaluable to us. I will pass your lovely comments onto the staff and you are welcome back to Surangana anytime. Thx Mike

“Paradise found”
Reviewed 17 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Having recently returned from a very special week in Surangana, we came from Australia, India and South Korea for a family reunion of sorts, and to celebrate a birthday. Thankfully we found Surangana for our stay and what a place to reconnect. The villa is simply stunning - the photos don't come close to doing it justice. We spent a heavenly week in this little piece of paradise and could not have asked for more.

Manoj, the villa manager, was the perfect host and our needs were met before we were aware we needed them. His team were super professional, discreet and so efficient – you could be mistaken for thinking the villa is run by a 5 star establishment. Priyanka, the chef extraordinaire, produced the most delicious food we had in Sri Lanka – after travelling for 3 weeks around the country before arriving at Surangana, we definitely saved the best till last.

The villa with its peaceful surrounds and staff - so marvellous - made it difficult for us to find a reason to leave and explore the region.

Having experienced numerous villa holidays in Europe, Asia and previously Sri Lanka, Surangana is without a doubt one of the best villa experiences to date. The question should not be, ‘would I go back’, but rather, ‘how soon can I go back’…..?! Surangana surely has to be one of Sri Lanka’s best kept villa secrets!

“Totally magical house and garden”
Reviewed 16 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Just back from a wonderful week at Villa Surangana. The house is beautiful and the garden bounteous and the situation totally magical, but Surangana is even more special because of the people who work there. Can't praise them enough. Manoj, the villa manager, is totally charming and so helpful - a lovely discreet and kindly presence for whom nothing was too much trouble. The food was delicious and every person who was on site was absolutely sweet. The house is beautifully furnished but also extremely comfortable with a good flat screen tv, wifi and sound system to keep the teens happy and I don't think we have every played so much table tennis! The house is also very convenient to get to all local attractions, including Galle and it's easy to book tuk tuks to get you around through Manoj as well to surf, whale watch, go out and explore using the house bicycles etc.

We so didn't want to leave! Both families agreed that is was the nicest villa experience we've ever had - and we've had quite a few through the years. We really hope to be back one day, but for now we would just thoroughly recommend it to anyone who would enjoy being in a lovely house, deeply embedded in the natural world being looked after by a lovely lovely team.
