“Stunning house on family friendly beach - perfect Sri Lankan holiday”
Reviewed 16 July 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Elephant Palace is the perfect place to enjoy Sri Lanka in luxury with a family - it was our best holiday together yet. The house, garden and pool are beautifully designed. The beach has incredibly fine golden sand and is a great place for kids to swim safely and learn how to surf. The staff team were friendly and the service was excellent. We loved waking up to huge fresh fruit plates, smoothies, porridge and curds. The lunches and evening meals cooked to order were delicious - highlights were lemongrass prawns, ponzu seared tuna and the selection of Sri Lankan curries. The villa is only 20 minute TukTuk ride from Galle Fort and is very close to lots of other great beaches and restaurants - the delightful Cafe Ceylon is just over the road. We will be going back!

“Heaven On Earth -You will not want to leave”

Stayed for 5 nights over UK half term - mid February.
Can't say how much we enjoyed our time in Elephant Palace.
The staff are amazing, and the location is perfect.
Two teenagers and two adults were totally happy with this location.
The villa is beautiful, very well set up for all your desires. Coffee in the morning, tea mid morning, and amazing lunches and dinners on request.
What is lovely about this villa is that although it's on a main road (yes you can hear the beep beep of Sri Lanka but thats part of it) but it's also totally private and with ultimate attention from the staff that the owners provide, all with a walk on beach (which is deserted) is just bliss.
It's the first time I have hired a villa with staff, and these guys kill it.
You feel isolated but also you walk out onto a beach that is safe for swimmers and kids and lots of surfers to look at, and also pop next door for some lessons if you need them.
The villa is beautiful and well equipped with everything that you need.
Yes it's not cheap, but on the other hand it's very reasonable compared to staying in a hotel, but then you dont' deal with other residents.
I would come back to this villa in a heartbeat. Thanks Rob..Holiday of a lifetime.

“Wonderful Place to Stay on the Beach”
Reviewed 19 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

If you are looking for a great place to stay in South coast Sri Lanka, this is it! ..........
When we stayed at the Elephant Palace we seemed to leave the hustle and bustle of the world behind. We were greeted by the house keeper & cook who were very in tune with what we were looking for in a retreat. Our room faced the ocean and was very well appointed. Beautiful public areas with relaxing but elegant colors and furnishings.

The rooms are super clean, the beds are dreamy and the balconies overlooking the pool and beach are actually large enough to really enjoy.This villa is gorgeous inside and out. The beach area is very clean and beautiful views.
During our stay we were pampered like royalty. I can honestly say we had the most wonderful time during our stay.
