We had the most amazing family vacation in Suriyawatta. Three kids, 6 adults all with our own requirements and the staff accommodated us all beautifully. They all went above and beyond to make sure we had the best time. The pool is GORGEOUS. It has a beach but due to high tide we couldn't experience it, but we didn't miss it because of the pool overlooking the beach. Overall, a definite repeat.
We planned this holiday with our family spread across various countries, meeting in Sri Lanka. We choose this place as we had visited previously and again were not disappointed!! The location of the villa is amazing, well maintained and extremely comfortable. The staff are absolutely incredible and went out of their way to cater to our every need. The chef whipped up superb meals which were enjoyed by all. The manager of the villa ensured our comfort. Definitely recommend this destination!!!
Suriyawatta is a beautiful, picturesque villa overlooking the beach in Weligama.
We booked the villa with our friends, our group consisted of 3 families young families and a single friend. Children ranging from 0-4. The aim of the holiday was to have a relaxing couple of days where we didnt have to worry about safety or entertaining the children, while still having a fun holiday with friends. We hit the jackpot!
The villa is perfect for groups and families, there is enough space for 14 people sleeping, and the space around the villa compliments this and allows everyone to find their own space for some quiet time. We found ourselves moving from area to area throughout the day. We didn't once need to leave the villa.
There are a few things to do around the area, however I have to say, you will probably be more than happy staying put. ;)
our little one spent the whole day splashing around in the infinity pool, while we enjoyed the views from it, the pool has both sun and shade so we could send the whole day there without worry. There is a seasonally safe swimming beach two houses down.
The staff were really fantastic, they were there when we needed but never made us feel uncomfortable. There is a chef, whose food was fabulous, the manu catered for all, and enough options for the whole stay, although they ma now have run our of chocolate fudge cake ;)
This was a great trip and it was all done to the villa and the staff.
Thank you :)
We have just returned from 5 days at the Suryiwatta Villa and all I can say is WOW. Amazing service, amazing views, great food, plenty of games for everyone to keep busy and an absolutely stunning private beach area.
The villa has been so well thought out by the owners and offers great fun for all the family.
Sanjeewa the house manager and his staff were so welcoming from the moment we arrived and could not have done anymore to make us feel welcome and relaxed.
Whilst relaxing in the villa, we managed to see large lizards, monkeys, gecko’s, frogs, chipmunks (or something that looks similar) and so much more, so that was also a highlight for the kids.
We will be back very soon and look forward to spending some more time exploring the area.
We had the most fantastic stay at Suriyawatta. Sanjeewa and his team were exceptional in the way they looked after us, nothing was too much for them. Food was amazing, both for the adults and children, every day was a feast. The villa itself is beautifully appointed, with a well thought out design that allows plenty of space for children to run around. Lots of lovely spots to relax in the garden or by the pool. The view is outstanding, we sat watching the ocean for hours. Location wise it is lovely and peaceful, yet close enough to Galle (30 mins by car max) and a short Tuk Tuk to the surfing beaches around weligama. The only negative was having to leave!! Thank you to the whole team for a memorable stay.
Located in Turtle Bay in Weligama, Suriyawatta is a very special villa designed with barefoot family holidays in mind. We were a family of 9 - 3 couples and 2 teenagers and a tween. I've stayed in more than a handful of villas on Sri Lanka's south coast and Suriyawatta is the clear winner!
The location - perched on a hill side overlooking the Indian Ocean -- only a few minutes from the surf schools and conveniences of Weligama, walking distance to Cape Weligama Hotel (if you wanted a spa experience or a fancy night out). It's about 45 mins to Galle. But honestly, you won't want to leave.
The house and garden have been designed to allow everyone their "own space together." There are ceiling fans every few feet on the wide verandah of the main house allowing the shade-seekers to see the ocean and the pool from the comfort of the verandah. The shadows in the garden from the frangipani trees are magical. There's a sound system (SONOS) with garden speakers. There's an infinity edge pool which enjoys both shade and sun. There is a seasonally safe swimming beach two houses down -- the walk along the beach is only possible at low tide and involves scrambling down some rocks, but it's super easy to walk from the house gate down the beach road (100 paces at most!).
Sanjeewa and the household staff are wonderful. They are present but not hovering. The chef is very willing to try recipes. The house menu affords plenty of options for diverse palettes/tastes.
We'll be back!
Ou family had an amazing time at this villa, the staff attention to detail was fantastic, Incredible food, the booking service through Villas in Sri Lanka was easy and the concierge service made all transfers very easy. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a great, relaxing villa. Thank you again to the whole team.
