Koggala, Galle, Southern Province
Ideal for family reunions, groups of friends or anyone wanting a relaxing getaway. The villa is situated in a stunningly beautiful location on a hillside overlooking Koggala lake, just over a mile from the beach and 25mins from Galle, but in total tranquillity, far away from the noise and crowds. Set in a 1.5 acre tropical garden, at the end of a finger of land extending into the lake, it is accessed via a 200m single track through the cinnamon plantations which are the only neighbours.
The villa is fully staffed and our villa manageress, Sonali, speaks excellent English and will ensure you have a wonderful time. She is also an exceptional cook and will prepare all your meals and shop for you, if you wish. All dietary requirements and preferences can be catered for. Meals are not included in the rental price, but the only additional cost...

Lakeview is a very special place to stay. From the moment of booking communications with Lesley were excellent and very helpful answering all our questions including the important matters of tonic water and lemons! Our transfer from Colombo airport organised by Prageeth, the villa travel manger, was very smooth and comfortable. Arrival at the villa up a very narrow green...

We have spent time in villas in many parts of the world, and Lakeview was equal to all of them . Why? Well it could have been the spacious accommodation , the simple but natural gardens with purple faced monkeys swinging in the trees, the infinity pool shared by the local kingfisher, the coconuts collected for us by the gardener...

Lakeview Villa is absolutely amazing! The first thing to wow me was the view, and the house was designed to maximize your view from everywhere. The bedrooms and en suites are very spacious. The king size beds are quite comfortable as well. The house is very well maintained and very clean. The house manager/chef, Sonali, is wonderful. She is a...

About the neighbourhood
The area provides plenty to do, whatever the length of your stay. Take a boat trip on the lake, or visit the numerous beaches, where you can enjoy swimming, surfing, snorkelling, diving, watersports, etc. Within 10- 40 minutes from the villa you can go whalewatching, do yoga, a canoe or cycling tour, visit Galle Fort, Koggala Lake, spice gardens, temples, tea plantation, turtle hatchery, get close up with elephants, etc. Further afield are the national parks at Yala, Udawalawe, Sinharaja and many more, but if all that sounds too strenuous, just curl up in a hammock with a book, have a massage or watch the wildlife from the balcony. .
Car not needed
