Stayed with Wolley for a week and loved it! His place is simple, quiet and clean. The villa is inside a walled garden with beach access 3 minutes away by foot. Wolley will cook local dishes for you for super cheap and I highly recommend this... you won't find better rice and curry for your money! This place is an absolute steal for someone looking to stay away from the hustle and bustle of places like Hikkaduwa.

Room Tip: When we stayed, only the upstairs room in the villa had A/C. This will only affect you on the hottest nights, though.

Stayed about a week here, it was fun and interesting.

Wolley (the host) cooked tasty meals, and took us on very nice tours around --
mangrove boat tour, night fishing on the river, safari at Yala National Park.

I'd recommend this place for those want to be close to nature,
and also tour the various Sri Lanka attractions around.

Thanks again Wolley for your nice hosting!

We went to the villa to have lunch as the Wolley the owner was taking us on a number of excursions through Sri Lanka

As vegetarians he went out of his way to make us so many different dishes and we ate so much and the taste was awaesome

The villa is set on the edge of the river and while we were there the local fisherman were checking their nets and one came right next to the shoreline where we were sat which was a fantastic experience.

Just up the river we could see local boys from the village doing the swim club and training so we found out Ambalangoda is very famous for the life guard trade. SO many of the guys from this one village go to hotels all over the world, in the same trip we met 3 others in Dubai!

Great experience and one I suggest as many people that can get there go through as this is the real Sri Lanka not the typical 5 star hotels ...

Enjoy ..
