A children’s bunk room cleverly has a larger bottom bed for a nanny. The master suite has an adjoining room with twin beds for smaller children. Hidden amongst the tropical planting lies the water slide (use at own risk) snaking it’s way into a plunge pool that rather geniously is separated from the main pool to allow kids to splash around whilst the less frantic can relax in calm waters. A large terrace offers ample tanning spots. The garden suite rests quietly by the pool and looks out across the lawn, on which many a SL vs the rest of the world cricket match is had, towards the yoga sala that is large enough for all. The chef is excellent and all food will tickle the taste buds. In all, this is a fabulous house that exudes wonderful energy and promises a fun time for all family and friends.

Paradise
This is the most spectacular villa! We had a fabulous family holiday in this amazing hideaway on the south coast. The house is gorgeous - so effortlessly serene amidst stunning gardens, wild jungle and long sandy beach. The pool - water slide, splash pool, everything for everyone. The bedrooms were ultra luxurious with enormous beds and amazing en-suites. And the food is just superb - fabulous local cuisine - family friendly but also using plenty of local flavours and ingredients. The MG team were so welcoming, kind and looked after us incredibly - we just totally relaxed. They helped us book excursions, travel and local things to do and see (when we could tear ourselves away from the villa!) We only had 8 days there but we could easily have spent far longer. Utter paradise!

The most amazing week of my life I think!!
I can’t even find the words to describe my time at Meda Gedera with Fiona and her team. From morning yoga in a beautiful shala on the edge of the Indian Ocean, to the mouthwatering food delivered to the table each night, every bit in between was nothing short of perfection. The villa itself is absolutely stunning, the team every bit as friendly and kind hearted as Fiona herself, and the views second to none I’ve ever seen in my life. I cannot wait to be back next year!

Magical Mada Gedara
Maybe one of the magical places I have ever been in my life. Situated in its own grounds surrounded by incredible lush jungle. I was blown away by the constant delightful bird song. Energised by the sound of waves breaking at the bottom of the garden. Rarely have I been anywhere where I felt so close to nature. The Villa is beautifully/eclectically/comfortably decorated. From the minute you enter you feel totally at home. The most delightful team who are super attentive but not remotely subservient. Nothing was a problem. The bedrooms, spacious and incredibly comfortable, Waking up in the morning to the sound of the sea was a joy. The nearest town is about 10 mins away in a Tuk Tuk which are constantly on hand. Great beaches nearby to go for sundowners. I could wax lyrical for hours on Meda Gedara. Total paradise!!! I will definitely book again. Rae F Dublin

THE BEST PLACE EVER
I have been to MG 3 times now and every time I go back it's a reminder of just how magical this place really it is. The thought, effort and creativity that goes into every single piece and part of this place is quite incredible - inspirational in fact! The swimming pool, water slide, yoga shala, garden down to the beach, yummy food, homely energy and more, make your time at MG such a unique and special experience. Fiona and every single one of the staff at MG go above and beyond to ensure you have a comfortable stay in Sri Lanka, rich with fun, luxury and experiences. It completely exceeds all expectations and I couldn't reccommend it more!! Book if now for an unforgettable, life changing trip.

STUNNING villa and exceptional service,
We’ve stayed in quite a lot of villas in this part of Sri Lanka and Meda Gadera is in a league of its own. Fiona is an amazingly attentive host and the whole team is exceptional. We had fabulous food and service and even saw a green turtle laying 109 eggs right next to a magical BBQ on the beach. I can’t recommend this place highly enough. Fabulous house, superlative staff and a stunning location.

Magical family stay in Meda Gedara
Meda Gedara is an incredible villa to stay with all family generation. Decoration is perfect, garden is beautiful with breathtaking view of the sea and the waterslide is definitely a highlight for the kids AND adults! The staff is absolutely amazing, always helpful and ready to help you to make your stay memorable. Again thousands of thank you to all and the chef for delicious food. As well a special thank you to Charis, we'll never forget the monk blessing in the temple. Thank you as well to the owner Fiona for the very efficient and friendly exchanges that we had via email to organise this memorable stay in MG.

As good as it could possibly get!
19 of us, three generations all had the very best of holidays at Meda Gedara. Two weeks of fabulous food (including mangos and more mangos!) and wonderful, wonderful spoiling personal hospitality. The most beautiful empty beach (not great for swimming but the pool more than compensated) at the end of the garden, kite flying, temples, surf lessons, tuk tuks on command. And the house and garden areas are as gorgeous as the photos! Altogether amazing.
