“A Slice of Heaven!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2012

I stayed at Villa Suriyagaha in July 2012 together with my son and his girlfriend. We chose the villa because of the excellent reviews it had received on Tripadvisor and I am delighted to say that not only were the reviews entirely accurate, if anything they understated just what a gem is hidden away some 30 minutes from Colombo airport. There is nothing to fault and everything to praise about this slice of heaven! Sandie met us at the airport and throughout our stay provided a wealth of information and advice about places to visit as well as organising guides and transport both locally and on the occasions when we went further afield.

We stayed in the bungalow which was modern, spotlessly clean, beautifully appointed with great air-conditioning and, best of all, just a few paces from the large and well–kept pool whose sunbeds are amongst the best I have ever seen! Our breakfasts were sumptuous and the only reason I didn’t have more evening meals at the villa was to preserve my rapidly expanding waistline! My son was very happy with the Wi-Fi facilities and I was very happy with the quality of the wines that Sandie had in stock!

All in all Villa Suriyagaha provides an absolutely superb experience and I hope to return at some future date. For those thinking of booking, please read all the reviews over the last 5 years. There is not an inaccurate word amongst them which says everything! Congratulations Sandie and good luck in the future.

John Malpass.

Everything from the Airport pick-up (supervised personally by Duncan) to the moment we checked out was 1st class. Having initally booked just our first night prior to going on tour, we arranged the last part of our holiday to allow a 2 night stay back at the villa. It was clean, spacious, very relaxing and excellent value for money. Food could not be bettered + drinks were very generous. Nothing is too much trouble for Duncan or Sandy. Hopefully one day we will be lucky enough to return!

I along with my family members travelled to Srilanka in the month of Feb .Our first stay was at Villa Suriyagaha in Waikkal . It's a very beautiful villa . Well maintained and greenery all around . Ranewali beach is just walking distance away from here . The location is just ideal for people who want to stay away from hustle bustle of the city and spend quality time with their peers . It gives you very homely warmth . In short its not at all commercial . Sandie and Duncan's hospitality is par excellence . I would sincerely recommend this place to everyone . Wish we could spend some more days here . Very much impressed by this English couple who really take good care of you with big smiles on their faces . They have expansion plans . Wish them all the best ! And look forward to visit them again .

We went with a large group of people and had booked 4 rooms,and we had a wonderful time there! The breakfast spread was great! Every room had a personal touch and everything was maintained very well. Our driver was with us, Sandy and Duncan were accommodating enough to put him up too. It felt like we were right at home.

Sandy and Duncan's house is the best place place we stayed in during our entire trip in SL! We started our trip at Suriyagaha and the next 3 places we stayed in (2 of them 5 star hotels) were not even close.

We had an amazing service starting from the cleanliness of the rooms, the pool and the super tasty spread for breakfast. The location is beautiful with pristine beaches nearby. It was 9 of us and we booked 4 rooms and our trip was off to a great start due to our stay here!

Room Tip: All are awesome! But if you want to cook yourself, there is a seperate guesthouse by the pool

We stayed for nine nights in the bungalow and have never felt so relaxed and welcome. The bungalow is immaculate, clean , modern and well equipped. We had a fantastic time relaxing and managed to fit in a few trips and a massage. Duncan and Sandie were excellent hosts who catered to our every whim with a great big smile at all times. Sandies home cooking was delicious and Duncans drinks were very large and welcoming after a long day. We would not hesitate to return and will recommend this villa to all our friends and family. The pool was huge and clean at all times.
