“Perfection in Paradise!”
Reviewed April 10, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We have experienced the most wonderful stay at this beautiful villa. The team have been absolutely fantastic, seeing to our every wish with 100% enthusiasm and professionalism! We will miss them all, however we will definitely be returning!
The food has been outstanding and we ended up eating here every night...Delicious!
The location is perfect, with just a short Tuk-Tuk ride to the beach and shops. We definitely recommend this villa to everyone. You will be very well looked after and will definitely have an enjoyable stay!

“What a gem!!!”
Reviewed March 19, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Arrived at Villa in time for my daughters special birthday - the table was laid for a banquet - as evening fell the pool was filled with balloons, the BBQ was set up, musicians arrived and to finish off - fireworks. Our stay was amazing - villa cleaned everyday with fresh bed linen and towels etc. The breakfasts were out of this world - everything so fresh. We thought we would eat dinner at Villa maybe one evening then eat out the rest of the time - we did the opposite - the food was so good and the choice varied it made for such an relaxing end to the day. Tuk Tuks were on call to ferry us to some beautiful beaches or the shops if we needed to go at any time. Senaka, our host, was fantastic and gave us lots of good advice and helped book trips - he also arranged a taxi to pick my granddaughter and I up from airport. Nothing was too much trouble. It is a holiday which will be difficult to better - Sandul Villa was definitely the icing on the cake. FABULOUS.

“Too much good stuff to say ... Not enough space to write it all”
Reviewed February 22, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Greetings all

What can I say about Sandul villa and owner Sanaka and his staff

We are a well travelled family and have been to many places around the world but I have to say the service, the attentive nature of Senakas staff and their genuine commitment to get it right has overwhelmed us and I would rate this holiday as one of our best in terms of accommodation and service

The villa can sleep 10 in spacious bedrooms which are all air conditioned and cleaned daily by a really friendly guy

Next the service

Breakfast will overwhelm you and again the attention to detail by the chefs and the waiter is superb

The staff who are only there when you want them are genuinely attentive and became part of the great evenings spent around the dinner table where we dined for probably half of our stay as we found the villa was one of the best places to dine in the area anyway

Senaka arranged a party for one of our groups wedding anniversaries which included a BBQ, cocktails, fireworks, a cake and a calypso band. All for a lot less than a evening in a British restaurant ... Stunning

Senaka provides transport to the beach with some great tuk tuk drivers who were alway smiling and on time

Finally. If you want a first class holiday experience where the owner is just a call away and does everything for you, this is the place for you

We lived like kings and queens and will be back ... Very chilling

Don't miss out before the word spreads and only kings and queens can afford it

“Great, relaxing vacation home!”
Reviewed November 30, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We were a group of six family members and good friends. We were impressed even before we met Senaka. He responded to our email promptly, with clear instructions and confirmation that he would pick us up at the airport and from a Colombo hotel. He is professional, helpful and sensible. In turn, his team match his standard in terms of quality of food (excellent Sri Lankan food!), table service (restaurant-style plating and serving), great amenities (comfortable beds, roomy bedrooms, wonderful pool and outdoor terrace).
Senaka also arranged transportation for us with three-wheeler drivers who were friendly, pro-active and contactable. Overall, a very memorable vacation experience at Sandul Villa.

“We Will Be Back”

This is the most comfortable villa we have ever stayed in. It is well appointed. The house is spacious and airy and provided many areas for the extended family to relax in. A beautiful pool has recently been installed and was a complete win for all of us. We were very graciously hosted and all the meals were stunning. The chef accommodated the childrens needs and continuously produced their favorites meals (especially the breakfast pancakes)
Each night the table was beautifully laid out on the verandah and we enjoyed a gracious but relaxed life style. Senaka went to a great deal of trouble to make sure that we visited key sites in the area and no request was too much trouble. Our grandchildren were very happy in this villa and had ample opportunity to play. We definitely recommend this villa to any travellers in Sri Lanka.

“Cozy villa”
Reviewed February 5, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

We have stayed here for 8 days of winter holidays (beginning of January) with a company of 8 people and a child (5 years boy). Sandulvilla appeared to be a very comfortable, mini-hotel like place: there is a daily service (room cleaning e.t.c.) and everything for your needs. There is different beaches located nearby, where you can get for free with a "tuk-tuk" given by villa's owner Senaka.

Many thanks to Senaka, who have payed really-really much attention to us: he took us from the airport personally (not just sent a driver), was arranging all the transfers we needed, gave us a driver to get us to distant towns and places, adviced nice places to visit e.t.c.

Especially we liked villa's food: there is a personal cook for making meals you ask for, and he is really magnificent. There is NO other place around where you could get better food (we have visited a number of restaraunts nearby). You can choose meals from menu or you can just ask for any meal you like (i.e. fresh fish and seafood super-recommended).
