It was a privilege to stay at Ambalama. The villa is in a lovely location, close to Galle with good transport into the town. The sea vista must be seen to be appreciated. Above all the team are solely focussed on their guests. They are authentic and helpful. Rashan is a superb chef. Gayan and Chandra and excellent butlers, and...

The Ambalama Villa is a gem of a holiday villa! The architecture of the villa follows the classical principles. The main building’s high ceiling and opened windows facing the ocean are perfect for the climatic conditions of Sri Lanka, drawing warm air upwards to the top openings and naturally cooling the interiors. The bedroom pavilions with its slanted roofing, soft...

This is a special and beautiful place. I have stayed in a lot of villas in different places in Asia and in the US and I think this is one of nicest places I have been. Beautiful decor, very open feel and easy step out to a great beach to walk on. At the same time there is a great...

Service was great. The house boys are very attentive and very prompt towards our requests. The look and feel is simply marvelous with a sea view literally welcome you everyday. It is very private if one who loves your own space and services. The rooms are all AirCon although we don't really need all the time. Outdoor shower was amazing...

Imagine a place with the most incredible views and sunsets, the ocean on your doorstep and service that is phenomenal! We stayed at this villa with our two children, parents, brother and his girlfriend for 3 nights. Wish we had stayed longer. Dont worry about the local activities as you will not want to leave the villa and its surroundings....

I recently stayed at Amabalama with my partner and 2 friends. This would have to be the most memorable holiday I have had in a long time. I don't know where to start, the villa is gorgeous (even when it rained for 3 days), Roshan (Chef) cooked the most amazing food. Our favourite was the tuna tataki, seafood pie and...

From the dining experience to the bedding experience and the Indian Ocean setting of the villa, I was blown away by my week's stay in Ambalama. The staff are more than just delightful - their level of attentiveness, can-do attitude accompanied by their disarming smiles made the stay an extremely homely one. Just being pampered by their unobtrusive ways and...

We stayed here for 6 nights with some friends and enjoyed every minute here - we found it hard to leave the villa for sightseeing. The location being right on the beach, views of the rolling waves from every part of the villa, bedroom, living & dining room, together with the warm and attentive service of all the staff made...

A truly beautiful villa. We brought books but found ourselves just sitting by the pool or living room gazing out at the ocean, mesmerized. Children had so much fun that even before we left they were asking their parents to make plans to go back for the next school vacation. Staff are very friendly, yet very professional, and pampered us...

We stayed here for 6 days and we could not have picked anywhere more perfect. There are so many villas to choose from and it took us ages to decide but from the moment we arrived we knew we'd made the right choice - Ambalama is by such a wide margin the coolest villa on the beach. There were only...
