This is a super location and gives a good run to the so called 5 star hotels with their welcoming property, the peaceful atmosphere, the service which goes beyond the call of duty and their thoughtfulness in making your stay an extremely unforgettable experience. Wije and his team make you feel so much a home always surprising you with what they can do to make our stay a fabulous one. Kudos to this hotel which is beautiful and perfect in every way. Their intentions of customer delight are so genuine and Wije has trained the boys so well. They strive for perfection in whatever they do. They are truly serving you with all their heart. Thank you so much for making our stay so pleasant and certainly a memorable one. I am definitely a repeater for many times. Kudos Wije and the team at Imagine Villa Hotel. Simply superb. Wish we had more places with the same level of courtesy and professionalisms.

We were lucky to have booked this little hotel for a whole week at the end of our trip. This gave us the chance to enjoy everything. We had a generous room and the pool was long enough to really swim. The kitchen was great! The cook (one of the owners) is native Singhalese and worked in Belgium before, with outstanding results! And don't forget to test the bar, if you are there! The hotel sits right on the beach (sand and rocks). To swim in the Indian Ocean, you should walk a bit, but you might miss peacocks, a mungo, turtles, crabs, fish and the wonderful sound of breaking waves right in front of your room... ;-). Coming to the best part... we were used to very good service on Sri Lanka, but staff and the owners of the villa were really so attentive and friendly as if they knew us for a long time. My wife had her birthday when we were there and we (owners, staff and me) managed for some surprises on that day, including a chorus of all(!) staff. :-) Great place, will return for sure.

Stayed for 7 nights last month and can not fault this hotel. We were promised the best room with amazing views and it didn’t disappoint. Photographs do not do this hotel justice, the owner was incredibly welcoming and couldn’t do enough to help us. All of the team were amazing and nothing was too much trouble. We ate in the restaurant for dinner three times and were left speechless by the quality of the cuisine. Would highly recommend this superb hotel.

Having just sent 2 nights in this beautiful hotel as we travel Sri Lanka on our honeymoon,we are already wishing we had booked for longer. The owner is so welcoming and checks daily if all is okay. The staff are so friendly and helpful. Rooms are spacious, spotless and have amazing views of the ocean. We had lunch on both days and I can highly recommend the tuna salad and the burger which my husband had on both days!The pool is quiet, perfect for chilling out. The breakfast area is fabulous and they serve dinner here as well.It's a short tuk tuk into town and they will call you one approx.350rupees. You can feel the western touch within this hotel and one of the best I've stayed in so far in Sri Lanka! We will definitely be back.

Spending three weeks in Sri Lanka and moving from hotel to hotel every one to two days, we spent two days here. Fantastic! This hotel is run by Marnix from Belgium and his customer service and attention to detail is of the best European standards. Yes, it is a small bit away from Mirissa but RS350 will get you in there in a Tuk Tuk. The Villa is located on a vast expanse of what can only be called deserted beaches which to me, more than makes up for its location. You wont go wrong with a stay here.
