Had a pretty disappointing an experience at Club Villa last weekend. This Geoffrey Bawa designed resort hotel is an excellent piece of tropical architecture and the settings are great but very poor state of the current management lead to a very bad experience last weekend. My wife and I have stayed here many times over the last 10-15 years when...

We stayed here for two nights and a bit of relaxation at the end of our busy three and a half week tour of Sri Lanka. It was just the right sort of hotel for that: beautiful gardens, a lovely, shaded pool with plenty of tables and chairs, good food, friendly and willing staff. We didn't find the trains disturbing,...

We quite enjoyed our stay at Club Villa, but in comparison with other resorts we stayed in whilst in Sri Lanka, it is overpriced and run down. The location is nice, next to the train tracks and near the beach, the yards are lovely and well maintained, and the pool is lovely. We especially loved the complimentary afternoon tea by...

We really liked this Villa. Clean and tidy, very attentive staff, great pool, very very easy to do nothing. In fact miles of beach are just a few steps across the local train track. It might seem odd to have the train run at the end of the garden but it was not frequent and we gazed at them and...

Reviewed 24 March 2017

This might sound harsh (especially to the helpful rank and file staff) but it has to be said because Club Villa is grossly over-priced, over-rated and over the hill. It is lacking in the ambience so many come for, hoping to find it in a much touted Bawa-designed resort. How so? 1. My wife was put off by cleaning rags...

This is a great place...a real oasis of calm and tranquility. Yes there's a train that goes past every now and again but it just adds to the character and I loved them and I'm no trainspotter!! It's tucked away in a quiet spot and can't be seen from the beach. If you are intereasted in seeing Lunuganga and brief...
