After travelling through Asia for 2 months with my boyfriend we wanted to treat ourselves with a nice hotel and a couple of chill days by the beach, and we couldn’t have picked a better place! As soon as we got out of the tuc tuc in front of the villas majestic entrance we were amazed. We were welcomed by smiling faces and a traditional Sri Lankan welcome ceremony, followed by a refreshing welcome drink.

Our room was beautiful and had an entrance towards the big garden, just in front of the beach. While many of the other beaches in the south can be crowded with people on the beach and in the water, the beach in front of the villa was almost completely empty with just one surf shop! We were a bit unlucky with the weather but still experienced some wonderful sunsets on the beach.

The food was amazing!! We had a big breakfast every morning and had plenty of options to choose from from the à la cart menu, with everything from traditional Sri Lankan dishes to seafood, pasta and salads. One of the nights they set up a table for us on the beach with a fire, torches and candles and it was a night we will always remember!

I would happily recommend Mosvold to friends and family or anyone visiting Sri Lanka, staying at Mosvold Villa was definitely one of the highlights of our trip!

Beautiful setting, lovely rooms, amazing food and superb service. My husband and I have stayed there three times and we will keep returning. The chef prepared us a gastronomic special menu for our wedding anniversary dinner and Ellin and her team made our evening extra special.

A small and delightful, well managed hotel, that ticks so many boxes.
Our spacious and comfortable bedroom with en-suite bathroom was spotlessly clean.
The food - we ate too much - was beautifully presented and tasted so good. It was nice to see the chef talking to so many guests and getting direct feed back on what they had just eaten. There is a good size swimming pool, which has recently been re-grouted and a small spa which was amazing. The garden area at the front of the hotel is beautifully maintained. How they have such a fine green and healthy lawn is a mystery to me! The staff were very friendly and tirelessly helpful.
Can't wait for our next stay,

My wife and I have just spent 2 fabulous weeks at this stunning hotel/villa and can thoroughly recommend a stay here to anyone. It is a beautiful villa in a stunning location right on the beach but what really makes it special is the people who work there. The friendly, happy and helpful team provide a very high level of service and made our stay such a memorable trip - we really felt welcome and there was nothing that Sean (Manager) and the team could not do for you.
The food was great with lots of choice for all palettes and to eat in such a beautiful location under the stars and trees with the waves crashing in the background will never get boring!
All the rooms looked great and while it is not noisy at all the quieter rooms would be to the right of reception.
The location we found to be ideal with Weligama (for more surfing) just a quick tuk tuk ride away and Galle (worth a visit) well within reach. We also organised a Safari to Yala National Park through the hotel and this was another great day out (3.30am start but back by 3pm).
We were fortunate to meet Kurt and Nilanka who own and and run Mosvold and you can see that the positive approach to life, people and business they have really rubs off on the whole team at the Villa.
When we get to Sri Lanka again we will certainly visit and will be recommending this place to a lot of friends!

This place is an experience! The beautiful entrance just giving you a hint on what to expect; The amazing location beachfront, the beautiful view, the nicely designed room (all but one with a sea-view), the food and the attentive staff: Mosvold villa does not disappoint! Try the spa with a view as well, and leave yourself pampered from one of the skilled crew, or simply nip a glass of wine in the bar or a ice coffee on the verge of the garden where the beach begins. OR you can simply go a two hundred meters to your right and be on a nice surfing beach.... Highly recommended, and one of the best places - to our experience - on Sri Lanka.

Room Tip: Over the bar is the suite - adds even more to the experience
