You would never expect this place when looking at the road it’s off nor the rutted lane to get to it. It is a haven of beauty, I won’t quite say tranquillity, as it's close to the airport's flight path and the local bird calls are loud, strident and very insistent, especially at 4 am! The grounds are quite something with an offshoot of the lagoon running through them with trees growing all over the place. Quite delightful. So far so good but now comes the but! But the dinner offered was meagre, poor and horribly overpriced, quoted in dollars then charged in rupees. I can’t say what exchange rate they used but I would guess it was an attractive one, to them that is. The manager was most insistent we committed to dinner the second night before we left for the day and simply refused to take ‘we don’t know if we are eating in or out’ for an answer, he simply kept asking and asking, in an increasingly determined voice. He nearly ended up in the lagoons offshoot! We fell for buying a bottle of wine, as they only had wine or beer, only to find for $25 we had a bottle of cheap South African plonk I would have paid no more than £5 for in the UK. The second problem concerned my wife. We acknowledge she is very attractive to mosquitoes so when she woke up with a leg looking like a spotted dick, we, initially, put it down to the little flying blighters. However, all the bites were on the one leg in touch with the bed, none itched, and she was only bitten a few more times in the other 23 days we were in the country. So, were they mosquito bites or something else in the bed? We will never know for sure, but we have a pretty solid idea of what caused them. I am delighted we were only staying there for two nights, and should I ever return to Sri Lanka I will make sure to give the place a very wide berth. A pity because all but one of the staff were first rate.

When you arrive here and go through the gate, it is like entering another world, an oasis in Negombo. Everything is beautifully done with lovely little features everywhere... water pools, vegetation. Our suite was huge and lovely and rustic with a massive carved wood door which was locked with a metal pole. The food was a little questionable (there was lots of microwave pinging going on) compared to other places we stayed, but we could live with it. The lady at reception (sorry, can't remember name) was lovely and really helpful with trying to get our delayed case from the airport. All in all, would recommend.

The villa opened its doors to my family and I to host a dinner party and Indira,Janith and team went above and beyond to make the occasion extra special! The stay at the villa was amazing as well. It really felt like home away from home. The stunning interior designing, delicious food and relaxing environment is just out of this world. Love the villa including Tipsy and Missy (the true owners). A 10/10.

A great place to end our 10 day trip around Sri Lanka. Peaceful and relaxed, an ideal hotel to spend the start or end of your holiday. Rooms and dining tables are spread out in different areas giving an air of calm, relaxation and privacy. The pool had just been cleaned and was lovely. We had the honour of meeting the owner, and were very well looked after by all the staff. Room was very comfortable and clean. Breakfast and dinner very good.

Intimate, charming, impeccable service. Wonderful location. Had the pleasure of meeting the owner, Rolf; shared his stories over local arak and snacks. A great place to begin touring the exotic Sri Lanka. A very special stay! Will highly recommend to future guests.

Quaint and artisan complex with sizeable and comfortable rooms. Would suit older visitors or those with young children. We visited on our honeymoon and found we were the only people awake when returning home from dinner at 10pm!! Bit strange and had to convince staff to give us a couple of beers to drink at that time. WiFi a little hit or miss. Struggled a little with the service compared to some other places we stayed in Sri Lanka. But clean friendly and nice setting.

A hidden gem - cannot recommend highly enough. Everything about Villa Hundira was a wonderful surprise. An oasis within a walled garden, with wonderful views of the lagoon. All the rooms are filled with treasures, old and new. Comfortable beds, quiet air conditioning, lovely bathrooms and tasteful art and tapestries made in their workshop. Breakfast was delicious and service excellent.

Villa Hundira has only a few rooms, devided over special corners that give you the idea of ultimate privacy. The middle of the premises consists of a park like part full of mangrove and other lagoon like plants and scrubs with acces to that lagoon . The staff is so friendly, helpful and talkative and provides you tea during the day on their own initiative. Also for the menu (lots of choice and very well prepared) they help you chose the right drink to your meal. I really found my rest and peace here after a 3 weeks full hiking holiday. Every meal was served at another spot, so that you keep wondering and discovering. I had to leave in the middle of the night but even so, 2 staff members were there to do the job as if it was during day time, being of full service and even waving me out. Fantastic place to come back to and spotless clean.
