This is the perfect place to relax in a superb location and a fantastic inhouse team. The food is outstanding and the staff discreet and yet ever present to make your stay perfect. We were a family of four and enjoyed our 4 days immensely. We will certainly be back.

A wonderful place to stay with the most stunning view. The staff were excellent and the chef was top notch. He could cook anything you ask and we had the most fabulous food.

Our stay at Ambalama Villa was considered one of the highlights of our 9-day Sri Lanka trip (it is on par with our trek up Adam's Peak). My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights in December 2015. We were lucky enough to have the entire villa to ourselves as the remaining rooms were not taken. The crew comprised...

My wife and I spent 6 days with 2 friends at this wonderful luxury villa near Galle, Sri Lanka. In short, if you want relaxation, superb setting on the beach, an exquisite luxury villa, exceptional food, amazing sunsets, setting to die for, and unobtrusive and friendly Sri Lankan hospitality then don't hesitate to book Ambalama! You won't be disappointed!

My family (2 adults and 3 children) stayed at Ambalama for 3 nights at the beginning of October. We simply loved the villa. We had a wonderfully relaxing stay and were superbly looked after by the wonderful staff.

After the marvellous experience of last year,I knew what to expect in terms of the amazing proximity of the sea, the sunset views, the sound of the waves as you fall asleep. The food was excelent in 2014 but has gotten even better I think and the chef is game to execute requests and does so with panache and imagination....
