“A wonderful end to our Sri Lankan holiday”
Reviewed 13 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We stayed here for two nights at the end of a fantastic holiday and what a place to spend a couple of nights. An enormous villa and only 3 of us, we didn't use half of it! We were greeted with smiles and a delicious supper cooked by Nalin, breakfasts were great and both meals we had were two of the best we'd had in Sri Lanka. The views from the upstairs bedrooms and balcony of the lagoon are wonderful, the pool is cool and welcoming and there's wifi throughout - a bonus for our teenage daughter. It was a great location for a trip in to Negombo for last minute shopping, we didnt' have time to do half of the activities we could have done and all too soon had to go to the airport, transport arranged and only half an hour away. We were made to feel so welcome, the manager phoned to apologise that he couldn't come over, then the owner called by to see we were ok - great service and highly recommended.

“Pure luxury and peace”
Reviewed 20 February 2012 for a stay in February 2012

We stayed at the Lagoon Villa for ten nights although we did venture out to see the sights for a couple of days. The accommodation is perfectly located and has fabulous sea/lagoon views from the upstairs bedrooms. The garden are really well cared for and the swimming pool is such a welcome respite when things get a little warm. We ventured out on the bikes and the local people were so friendly it was impossible not to say hello to everybody that you passed. The villa is cared for by a local man named Nalin who is a jack of all trades. He can take you out in the evening in his tuk tuk, take you fishing or take you on a boat on the lagoon. On top of this he also can cook for you!!

“Perfect for adults and children”
Reviewed 16 January 2012 for a stay in December 2011

We were three couples with 1 child each (all three children were under 3 years old). We stayed there for a week and spent one of the best Christmas we have ever had.
The Villa is very comfortable and extremely well decorated. We had to make a few arrangements with the furniture to accomodate all three families and that was not a problem at all.
We were looked after by Nalin and his wife who cooked us fantastic breakfast, lunch and dinner every day, including our Christmas lunch. We are all very fond of the aubergine dish they made for us and that we are desperate to copy (without success so far!). They were again very keen to accomodate our needs and served the three meals at the time we wanted or to match with our excursions without a problem.
Nalin was also excellent at organising transportation for all 9 of us, whether it was in three-wheelers to go into Negombo or in mini-van to go to Colombo or Pinnawala Elephant Orphenage.
The villa is in a location that is quiet so we relaxed a lot. The facilities of the villa are amazing, and we spent a lot of time in the pool with our children. The villa is safe and every day maintenance was never a problem.
Pick up and drop off was organised for us from andto the airport as well.

All in all, I found it very easy to book the villa, we all found our stay incredibly relaxing and stress-free and my daughter, when looking at picture still says "I want to go to that house again", to which we say "we'd love to go back too."
