This area of the island is beautiful and Ridee Villa played a massive part in what was a magical, warm, and welcoming trip. The most outstanding aspect of our stay would undoubtedly be the kind and gentle staff who went above and beyond to ensure that my partner and I were comfortable and happy.

Stayed here for three nights over Christmas. They arranged a transfer from the airport for us at 12.30am in the morning which arrived in Unawatuna about 3am. Gorgeous room. One of the newest and most modern hotels we found in Sri Lanka. Incredibly warm and generous staff - they could not do enough for you. One minute to the beach....

My husband and I stayed at Ridee Villa for 6 nights in December in a superior double room. We found the room to be very clean, spacious and tastefully decorated. The room had a safe and fridge but no TV - this is something we think should be included for the price. The room was cleaned daily and fresh towels...

It started with a warm welcome - warm towels to wipe our faces and cold drinks. Our room was small, but it contained a king size bed, table and chairs, a safe, fridge and a small closet. The bathroom was large and modern. Everything was scrupulously clean. There was a good breakfast with lots of selection. There were several lounge...
