Description

Villananda is a beautiful beachfront property with polished concrete, antique doors (Ambalangoda is the place for antiques in Sri Lanka) and decorative objects carefully selected from the local area. Villananda is only a few minutes away by tuk tuk from the town of Ambalangoda.

The two spacious bedrooms are equipped with king-size beds (180 x 200 cm) with mosquito nets and air conditioners. Each has a writing table in the corner.

In one bedroom, the bed can be adjusted into two single beds 90 x 200 cm.

Each room has an en-suite bathroom with solar heated water and separate toilets.

Bed linen and towels are of European quality. Breakfast, filtered water, daily housekeeping and wifi are all included.

The living room/sitting area will allow you to enjoy the eclectic library with a few good books to discover, comfortably seated in the lounge area, unless you prefer an internet session on the coffee table or on the veranda. A speaker system is waiting for your iPod or other MP3 player.

The fully equipped kitchen (2 gas burners, refrigerator, microwave oven, toaster, kettle, coffee maker ...) will allow you to cook for yourself, if you prefer not to order lunch or dinner from our reasonably priced menu.

The vast terrace overlooking the garden, the pool, the quiet sandy beach and the sea will welcome you for meals and relaxation.

The private pool is carefully maintained and the water quality monitored every day. Swim peacefully, while enjoying the show of the waves.

At least one member of staff will sleep overnight in the adjoining service accommodation. The manager and his team will be available to answer your questions and other needs, including arranging trips.

Great chill out to start our holiday

I have never relaxed as quickly or as totally as I did here. By day 3 I opened the shutters onto MY pool and MY very own beach and felt so at home. Sampath and the guys totally looked after us, whatever you need you can ring for. Being Brits I didn’t find this easy at first but they are truly wonderful and put you at ease. The food was amazing. Breakfast and dinner were both delicious, so much do that we didn’t venture out at all. The curries were authentic and so tasty and prices were great. We used the three days at the start of our adventure as pure chill out and time to catch up with my daughter. The villa is wonderful. The pictures don’t do it justice. The 2 bedrooms are spacious with huge netted four poster beds and en-suite with walk in wet shower. The kitchen is huge, high vaulted ceiling with big American fridge . Everything you need and beautifully finished. The garden is spacious with a good pool and grass area. This opens up to a wonderful beach which really is as good as it gets. Wide, long, golden sand and turquoise sea!!! The town is close by but as I say, for once we didn’t feel the need to explore. Thank you Sampath/ guys for a very special time and to Martin for great communication and instructions throughout. We will be back🥰👍

Beautiful, private and quiet

I stayed here with my wife and in-laws. Location is stunning with a 30 second walk to a beautiful and almost completely deserted beach. The accommodation was clean and the beds extremely comfortable. Sampath and the team are great and give a perfect balance of privacy and interaction. They all know the area well so have some fantastic advice. Would highly recommend to anyone, especially if you’re looking for a nice relaxed time.

Perfect beach villa

Right next to the beach with it’s own pool the villa is amazing. Friendly staff who cook traditional Sri Lankan food which is amazing! Close to town so you can dive into the local culture or stay in and chillax!

We were there a bit out of season, but the property is spacious and modern, the garden are and walk to the beach is stunning. This property made the trip, we had such gracious hosts who cooked fresh meals for us in the evenings. Highly recommend.

Lovely beach side villa with a great team!

We really enjoyed our stay in villananda! The property was so nice and just on the beach. The team is really lovely ! They made our stay very enjoyable and memorable! We were celebrating an anniversary and the team organized decoration and fireworks at the villa, alongside a full bbq. The food in the villa is amazing we ended up eating there all the time! I highly recommend this villa if you are looking for some pampering, peace and quiet away from the hecticness of the outside world!

I had the pleasure to stay at this stunning property and I can honestly stay it blew our mind! Located directly on a quiet and beautiful beach it offers everything you can wish for on a relaxing holiday! The house is clean, beautifully furnished and has an amazing pool! The property manager and his team made our stay petfect and were available and helpful whenever we needed them! Make sure you have a barbecue with fresh fish from the market prepared for you right in your garden! Can totally recommend this place :-)

Amazing

Have just returned from two glorious weeks at the villa. From the time we walked in through the gate I knew we were in paradise. The villa is kept immaculate by the wonderful team who were very helpful at all times, including daily room cleaning, pool cleaning and gardening. The breakfast was plentiful and delicious and we also ate at the villa each evening as the food was so good with plenty of choice. The team also kept the property secure and arranged transport (tuk tuks) whenever we wanted to pop out. The beach is amazing and quiet, generally used by locals and there is lots to do in the area. We didn't do a lot on this trip to Sr Lanka as we have toured previously and just wanted to chill out in the wonderful environment we were in. We did visit the turtle hatchery (10 mins walk away) on a few occasions and were able to help look after the turtles by feeding them and even releasing new turtles back into the ocean on two occasions - this was a real Moana moment for my grandaughter and was an experience I will never forget. We went to Ambalangoda for general suppliies such as snacks and water as it is less touristy than Hikkaduwa and cheaper. We were here during the recent attacks and we felt totally safe at all times with the team looking out for us discretely at all times. I would go back tomorrow if I could. I thank Sampath and his team for helping to make such wonderful memories and I really hope to return again. I really miss the place already!

Best place to stay in Sri Lanka

This was our third stay in Villananda. Like two times before it was absolutely perfect ! The place is really paradise, You are all alone and the beach in front of the house is just yours! The staff is great, reliable, very kind, helpful and friendly. Mr.Sampath, the manager, is such a great person and becomes a good friend. We are really grateful for his fantastic support. He fulfills all your wishes as fast as possible. He is always there, when you need him, but he will never be intrusive. He is a great help when buying fish from the fishermen :-) Vidula is a great cook, preparing a wonderful breakfast every day and he prepares all dishes according to your wishes perfectly, whatever it is. We had wonderful BBQs on the beach. Everyone else of the staff (Shanaka, Lahiru, Tarindu ... ) becomes a friend. The house is wonderful. If there are any problems, they will be solved immediately by Sampath. It is great to swim in the nice pool, looking over the sea from there. Anyway, you should know that the main road is right behind the house, so you can hear the street noise in the bedrooms at night. But that was not disturbing us, because the sound of the waves brings you to sleep :-) Beds are very comfortable. A big kitchen and living room (but you will not stay inside the house, hahaha !) You can also hear the music of the "breadman's" car. When you hear it, go outside the house on the street. Then you can get fresh bakery products and more directly "out of the car" for less money. The "breadman" is passing by in the early morning and several times a day. For pictures of the house go to Villananda`s homepage. The pictures there are all real ! Villananda is really worth the money. The place is just a few Minutes away from Ambalangoda, where you change money and where you can get anything you need to live. Wonderful markets there. We love Ambalangoda, a wonderful town! If you want to buy fish, get it from the fisherman in front of the Villa, when they return from the sea. It is fresh, tasty and cheaper than at the market. Sampath will you help you to choose the best fish ;-) There is a bus stop really near to get to Hikkaduwa or Galle by bus, really cheap ! Train station in Ambalangoda. There are a lot of beautiful temples around to visit. You will not get bored there. So Villananda is really recommended. !! We will be back, guys :-) Love you all !
