From the time you enter the gates to the walk to the infinity swimming pool, no tall claims but you will be amazed at the luxury provided in a simple setting. Kurulla villa has it all, lush greenery, the infinity pool, gorgeous rooms and my son - two years old just loved the open air shower.
To get up to the sound of birds and squirrels on your doorstep and one morning; a large snail was too amazing for my two year old. And not to forget my 87 year old dad just could not get enough of lounging in the pool area and dipping his tired legs every now and then.
The staff were very prompt and always there to help but never once got in the way, though the hygiene standards of the kitchen need to be stepped up a notch, everything fitted in so superbly to our plan to have a great family holiday. The cook really amazes you with the variety and what was most charming was whenever he did not know to make a dish the real sri lankan way he would go this house and get his mother to make it for us. Very cute and to top it all we realised this only on the lsat day. Thanks to him my son always got his food on time and oh Lolla the dog, she was part of the family, and so friendly-though sometimes we got the feeling she owned Kurulla villa. Even the night watchman was so courteous.
We have been using trip advisor for four years now and have stayed at almost 11 such apartments/villas; so if you want a real peacful holiday with you going to the market in a tuk tuk, the cook takes you to the market mind you..in his pink little tuk tuk. And we have not had fresher fish and the amount of passion fruit we gorged on was amazing. Kurulla villa gives you abundance in terms of location, peace, fun(the beaches close by and the turtle farm was inspiring) Just a word of advise, ac needs to be in the third room, the net over the bed needs to be perforated, may be two more fans in the living room may make a big difference and yes the kitchen hygiene needs to be upgraded just a little bit.
But all in all from my father-amazing place, from my son-life could not be better and exciting running around one more time in the garden and jumping in the pool, from my wife-well she could finally catch up on her sleep and myself-of course we will be back.
Trevor, Nikki, Kidd and the rest of the family will be back
