“Loved it!”
Reviewed 30 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Absolutely loved my stay at Far Horizons Villa for two nights in November. The place is actually better than the photos!
After enjoying the sites on the winding and steep roads to get there, I was greeted by the whole team with a cool welcome drink, big smiles and the glorious views.
My room was lovely and bright, with a huge shower and comfortable bed and air conditioning that was easy to control (as opposed to other places where you can freeze!). The balcony provides more access to the great views of Unawatuna Bay beneath and also the perfect spot to watch the monkeys jumping between the trees close by.
Upul prepared two delicious dinners for me; the first night a chicken curry with lots of other side dishes and a seafood pasta (my 'surprise me' meal). The breakfasts were huge with fresh fruits, eggs and coffee to set me up for the day.
Lesley & Ken have prepared a very informative guest information folder that was great to read to learn more of what the area has on offer and were also very helpful in guiding me down the hill on my walk to the beach.
Overall, I would highly recommend Far Horizons for and have already booked to return with a group of friends in February of 2016.

“Love this place”
Reviewed 24 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Our family (6 adults and one 5 month old baby) stayed for three nights at far horizons as an end to our holiday in Sri Lanka. We were looking for relaxation and a bit of luxury. This was certainly achieved. The villa has amazing views and is so peaceful. The pool and grounds are well maintained with a variety of wild life in the treesfor your entertainment (monkeys and peacocks). Upul and Pumi made our stay that extra bit special cooking delicious food and attending to our every need. We were made to feel very welcome by Lesley and her team.

“Awesome place in Unawatuna”
Reviewed 6 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

person found this review helpful

One of best places we ever stayed! An absolutely must-have in Sri Lanka when you come to Unawatuna. At first the villa itself is beautiful. It's very new (I think we were the first commercial guests) and everything was very clean. The architecture of house is amazing, everything is built of strong wood and natural stones. There are even some traditional furnitures.
The next point we want to mention is the garden with its infinity pool. It was very good for relaxing and enjoying the awesome view together with a fresh opened coconut in your hands. They also serve fresh fruit cocktails and some snacks during the day. The food (we ate breakfast and dinner) was very delicious and fresh made. If we had any extra wishes, they immediately did everything to solve it.
We last think we would to compliment it the staff. We got a very nice and warm welcome and everybody cared for us. They also gave us a lot of information what to do, even Upul was like a tour guide and joined us on our tripes to explain everything. The owners Lesley and Ken are from the UK and do care about three guests a lot.

We would like to say thank you to everyone and want to come back again! We will recommend it 200% !!!

“Paradise!”

We were lucky enough to become the first guests at Far Horizons, having earlier spent a couple of days at LakeView Villa, Lesley & Ken’s original property, a short distance away. Far Horizons shares a number of features, including an infinity pool with a jaw dropping view, but in this case overlooking the beautiful bay at Unawatuna.

This brand new property is simply stunning and I was transfixed by that views. Our rooms are large and airy, fully air conditioned and have everything to provide a real home from home feel, and the all-important mosquito nets over the beds. We had a lovely balcony that overlooked the garden, pool and sea beyond. The rooms were spotless and there has obviously been a great deal of care and attention to detail in furnishing them.

Lesley was there to meet & greet; she’s very friendly and seemed very efficient during the booking process and prior to our arrival. After she’d left, it was Upul & Piumika, the husband and wife team who look after the property, who spoilt us and looked after our every need. They prepared delicious breakfasts, lunches and dinner, which included Sri Lankan dishes, international favourites and local sea food.

The villa is situated a short [10 minute] walk from the beach and a little further to the centre of Unawatuna with it’s beach restaurants and shops. It’s only a short journey by TukTuk to Galle for a walk around the fort.

We left feeling thoroughly relaxed and can’t wait for an opportunity to visit again.

I would highly recommend a stay at Far Horizons, the longer the better. It’s stunning, you won’t be disappointed!
