“The best place to stay in Sri Lanka”
Reviewed March 1, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

We've just returned from a wonderful 10 stay at Palm Beach Villa in February 2013. We chose the villa because of the very good reviews we'd read on Trip Advisor and that with it's advertised facilities convinced us to book. We certainly weren't disappointed!

It's a lovely house which really is a home away from home. We were a small party of 5, which included our one year old son and the facilities were perfect. Our primary reason to visit Sri Lanka was to get married and the vila hosted ours and their very first.

If you're looking for a venue to get married at in Sri Lanka, this is the place. Our photographs are incredible. It's got every backdrop you could wish for from the house, through the garden and of course the beach. Lasitha is very diligent and is a very attentive wedding planner. Tryst him and he will do you proud.

Lasitha the villa manager and his team were superb in every way. They did their utmost to make sure we had a great time and seemed to really delight in making sure our needs were met in every way. Lasitha's local knowledge was very helpful. He took us grocery shopping, took us out for day trips and took charge of helping us organise all of the technicalities associated with our wedding and it's registration in Sri Lanka.

The house is everything you could want. The bedrooms and bathrooms are lovely and calming, the living room is a great place to relax in, the garden and pool is where we spent the majority of our time and with a small boy to contend with, I must say it was perfect. Lasitha and Patrick kept the pool spotlessly clean at all times. There's even a TV room, which has satellite TV/DVD, access to the internet via a laptop computer and even an electronic keyboard on which we had hours of fun.

We'll definitely return to the villa. It's a wonderful retreat and whilst Wadduwa itself is a relatively quiet town, with not much happening to see, it's a fantastic haven in which to base yourself, whether you want to sit back, relax and enjoy being spoilt at the villa, or use it as a base to explore the many wonders of Sri Lanka.

Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous!

“Fantastic Holiday”
Reviewed January 7, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

We spent 11 fantastic days at Palm Beach Villa during the Xmas period. Family of 9 we were picked up at the airport by Lasitha, the Manager who was so helpful and drove us around to visit places. Also showed us the best places for buying groceries and spoilt us with lots of lovely Sri Lankan food for breakfast, It was a feast everyday. Patrick, and two Prema's were great trying to please us in every way possible. The Villa was very comfortable and well equipped, just by the beach. The kids enjoyed themselves in the pool, just the place for a family to spend a fantastic holiday. It was sad leaving the Villa and hope to visit in the near future.

“Fabulous Sri Lanaka beach vacation rental”

We spend a fabulous week at Palm Beach Villa in October 2012. The house was fantastic - large, comfortable, clean, and well equipped with modern fittings and equipment. It is right on the beach and also has a great pool if ocean swimming isn't your thing. The staff were extraordinarily helpful and friendly; they really added sparkle to our stay. They accompanied us on our food shopping excursions, gave excellent advice on local produce and cooked absolutely delicious meals. They also arranged great day trips so that we could get out and see a few things in addition to blissing by the pool. A really outstanding experince.

“Amazing.”

We stayed at the Palm Beach Villa for 9 days in March, 2012.

First of all the villa is beautiful and well-equipped especially we liked the local wooden decorations. The lush garden and the pool were well maintained and clean. The palm trees and the sandy beach were fabulous. Everything as it was promised. The staff was amazing (Lashita, Anne, and Patrick): they were friendly and helpful. Our kids (5 and 7) loved the villa, the pool and the beach. It is like your own island.
Anne was very kind and tried to accommodate to our children's taste (no spicy, only chicken). Patrick waited us on the beach with torch as we went over the hotel without having been asked just to make our way back safe in the dark. Lashita's help and attitude was exceptional no to mention how wonderful driver and guide he was. They made our stay unforgettable. We will be back,

“Simply the Best!”
Reviewed March 11, 2012 for a stay in March 2012

We have just returned from a wonderful holiday at Palm Beach Villa in Wadduwa Sri Lanka. We were travelling with our 1 year old and 3 year old children and the whole holiday was simply fantastic
We were met at the airport by the villa manager Lasitha who took us to his luxury 9 seater van with fridge and cold water for the transfer to the villa, on arrival we simply could not believe our good luck, the pictures on the website of the villa and surrounding area looked good but they did not do it justice, it was magnificent in every way. The rooms were huge, all with air conditioning; it was immaculate and beautifully furnished with wireless internet, a laptop, fully equipped kitchen, lazy boys, satellite television, four poster beds, Jacuzzi bath and much, much more. The outside area was even better with huge clean pool with so many pool toys and inflatable’s for adults and kids, the garden was kept beautifully and is surrounded by palm trees and at the end of it is the gateway onto the most stunning of beaches which gives you a real sense of paradise. The sunsets over the sea every night were truly spectacular! The beach is deserted and great fun for all the family while just next to the villa is the 5 star Blue water hotel if you want to pop over for dinner or the spa.
It must be said the highlight of the villa was the staff that work there and make your holiday truly relaxing in every way. Patrick the night security is always there to help in the evenings while Ann the house keeper cooks a great breakfast makes a superb fruit salad as well as traditional Sri Lankan curry for dinner. Lasitha the villa manager who will also drive you on any day excursion you want and gives advice was incredible, his attention to detail, from setting up the beach chairs to cleaning the pool and from providing local knowledge to bringing his own auto rickshaw for us all to have a go on was second to none, he even organised an elephant to come to the villa! All of the staff were excellent with the children and were of a great help when needed!
The surrounding areas are great and the new highway to Galle makes it a quick and easy day trip, other fun things are the turtle hatcheries a trip to Colombo and generally soaking up the local life
Without any doubt I would recommend this villa as the perfect holiday destination made extra special by the staff, we will be back!

“Awesome Experience”

After traveling all night, we arrived in Sri Lanka and, as promised, our driver was right there to greet us. We arrived at Palm Beach Villa and immediately were greeted by the staff. All tiredness left us and we were amazed by the lushness of the grounds and the beautiful home that would be ours for the long weekend. Can't say enough about how wonderful the staff, Lasitha, Ann and Patrick are, they really are the core of what made our trip so special. Lasitha has great knowledge of the area and is available to take you on any excursion you wish. Ann is a wonderful cook and made us delicious meals. Patrick was also very accommodating and helpful. The house was everything it is advertised to be and more. My only wish was that we had more time to do more touring. All in all a wonderfully relaxing time!
