“Already booked to go back! ”
Reviewed 19 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

person found this review helpful

Wow. This really was an amazing place to spend a week. The villa is so close to the sea that you hear the waves lapping in as your head hits the pillow in a large and airy bedroom with a huge 4 poster bed. Opening your bedroom door in the morning to an empty beach with palm trees beautifully littered along the coast line doesn't get boring. If you want somewhere beautiful, quiet and ultimately relaxing, this ticks all the boxes. You'll also be served amazing food by the charming chaps who work at the villa. Fresh fish, prawns, squid, light curries and dhal and make sure you get hoppers for breakfast. Finally, the villa is in a great spot for day trips out to Galle fort, Mirissa beach, diving and whale trips, and if you fancy a bit of a night out Unawatuna. Can't wait to go back next year!

“Absolute heaven”
Reviewed 27 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

After an amazing trip to Samudra last August I returned this April with friends, for 10 days of relaxation in the sun. The house itself is gorgeous, designed to ensure you spend the majority of your time outdoors enjoying the sound of the surf and the amazing view, which alone is enough to make you fall in love with the place. Inside, the bedrooms are spacious and airy with extremely comfortable four poster beds and private outdoor showers. The team at Samudra are exceptional and could not be more helpful to ensure you truly relax and switch off from the world!

“One of the best villas I have stayed in”
Reviewed 25 April 2016 for a stay in November 2015

Really and truely paradise right here, I can't express how lovely the villa is and its surroundings. The beach outside the villa is stunning, the villa itself is beautifully designed and the staff are perfect. A holiday rental like no other. The location is super, near to Galle and not so far from Weligama, right in the middle of Sri Lanka's favoured South coast.

“Samudra is the perfect place to relax and spend time with loved ones”
Reviewed 29 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Samudra is my happy place - everything is beautifully decorated, the outlook is stunning, the pool is perfect, and the staff will look after your every need. Samudra boasts one of the best chefs who will cook whatever you ask with fresh, local ingredients. Waking up to the sound of the waves is such a privilege, and the garden, beach and pool mean you are spoilt for choice about how to relax. I've stayed over five times now, with friends and family from all over the world, and Samudra is always their Sri Lankan highlight. I'll be back again soon!

“Tranquil paradise”
Reviewed 19 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Following a magical time at Samdura House last year my partner and I couldn't resist returning for another 10 days and have left again with only WOW.

The garden, pool and beach are as beautiful as remembered and it was great to see both Ruwan (we resp recommend his rice and curry and range of fresh salads) and see Sanjeeva, who was as helpful as ever. Everything is done for you here, all you have to do is relax and admire the view of the garden wildlife with daily visits from exotic egret birds, turtles, chipmunks etc and the beach, which apart from a handful of surfers feels private it is so secluded..

The addition of day bed facing out to sea for afternoon snoozes and additional pieces of antique furniture and art make for it as close to perfection as I have every experienced. Its a place to go to unwind and find tranquility and we are already looking at dates for next year.

“Perfect beach side escape - great food, location and service.”
Reviewed 10 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We had such a fantastic stay here, visited because a friend highly recommended it and we were not disappointed.
The staff onsite were amazing and the food was second to none. Nothing was too much trouble.
The villa itself is beautifully furnished, the little touches like books, board games and tourist guides make such a difference.
Would recommend this to someone that wishes to relax in beautiful beach side surroundings,

“absolute paradise!”
Reviewed 5 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

This place has it all! Set within a beautiful stretch of pristine coast line with lush tropical vegetation sprawling onto the golden sand, it really is paradise. The house itself is simply exquisite with everything one could possibly ask for to complete the perfect stay. The high end Sri Lankan interior design throughout the property rivals that of any top end hotel resort with the attention to detail adding a certain flare I have not experienced before; whether that be the ice cold flannels handed to you upon arrival scented with the most amazing fragrance to the flower petals dotted across the bed it really is an experience that is a must for anyone visiting this amazing country. A true highlight are the wonderful house staff who can be on hand throughout your stay to make your trip even more comfortable. I would highly recommend staying in and having the on site chef cook for you - his garlic and chilli prawns are to die for (his famous chilli eggs are also a must try at breakfast!). This place serves as a great place to simply kick back and relax for your entire stay or use as a great base given its convenient location whether you fancy a jungle safari, trek up Adam's peak or some whale watching! it really is too good too good to be true - I couldn't recommend it enough.
