7 of us visited Kumara for a week in Feb 2017.
It was simply perfect. The place is stunning. The individual guest houses are beautiful and the communal area and pool are paradise on earth.
Kelum the manager is one of the nicest, friendliest, most helpful people I've ever met. All the staff are great and go above and beyond. From arranging tuk tuks, to sorting out trips to national parks, to beer runs! Everything was catered for.
Kumara is only a short drive to Mirissa beach (beautiful, with lots of restaurants, bars - strongly recommend Zephyr.) and from Welligama (not quite as nice, but good for surfing.)
I can't recommend the place highly enough. the photos on their website don't do it justice (which is saying something.)
Just stop googling, stop thinking about and book Kumara!!
My husband and 2 adult children and I stayed at Kumara for the Christmas week in 2015. We normally spend the time at home but decided this year to go away. What a wonderful decision that was. We arrived at Kumara after a long drive from Colombo to be warmly greeted by all the staff, dogs included! We were shown around the villa and each chose our own private villa. Our kids asked where all the other guests were! Nothing was a problem for the staff. We had our lunch served as ordered on line and cold beers were in the fridge!
Each day breakfast was served as ordered and it was delicious. The cooks certainly knew how to cook. Kellum organised all and anything we wanted from tuk tuk drivers for our beach excersions to a wonderful Christmas lunch of baked whole fish with all the trimmings.
The villas were superbly decorated, comfortable and everything was thought of even to the Nespresso machine. We spent many wonderful hours around the pool and pavilion watching monkeys in the trees, birds flying into the pool for a drink and the lovely sunsets. I would highly recommend Kumara Viila to anyone. The best part of our trip to Sri Lanka was our time spent at here. Thank you to the owners for sharing their special place and the staff for making it a truly memorable Christmas for us.

The Villa (s) are incredible. The Staff are fantastic. Its a perfect spot to hide away from everything, its hidden away just enough, but very close to Weligama if needed. Its so peaceful. We were there with our kids (3yr old & 1.5yr old) who just loved the environment to run around in. Its worth noting that the villa's are very separate, so for younger children you have to be happy for them sleeping in a separate building/ villa to you. All in all we can't recommend this place highly enough. You de-stress in a instant! The Pool will be missed. Its amazing. The host was always on hand prior to our visit to ensure we had everything we need once we arrived.

We have just returned from a very relaxing stay at the beautiful Kumara Luxury Villa. Every detail has been thought of at this villa to ensure that your stay is perfect. The main pool pavillion is the perfect place to relax with day beds and bean bags, and of course, the beautiful pool. The sleeping pavillions have are breathtaking, with amaxing outdoor bathrooms and plenty of room. Finally, the staff and service was top notch - delicious food, helpful service, and never feeling like they were 'hanging around'. Do yourself a favour, book this villa and don't think twice.
My wife and I just stayed at Kumara Villas for 5 nights and have to say if you want rest and relaxation this is the place to go.
The guest manager, Kelum is always on call to arrange any tours or transportation and is such a good guy, along with the rest of the staff, very friendly and helpful. The food is amazing, pick from a menu of the best traditional Sri Lanka food.
The villas and pool pavilion are designed with the utmost attention to detail, with every amenitie covered.
Amazing place to stay, and 5 minutes to Mirrisa beach and Weligama.
Cannot recommend highly Enough!
