“Amazing place - paradise on the beach!”

We (two adults, two children of 10 and 12) had the most amazing 7 days at Villa Golden. We arrived there after a 2 week tour around the island (also visiting family) and immediately felt relaxed and at home. The villa and grounds are stunning - even the pictures on the website don't do it justice! Bart was wonderful to deal with from the start - very responsive via email, and answering any questions we had promptly. The great level of communication continued, with Susantha calling our driver the morning of the day we were due to arrive to ask if we wanted supper that night. When we arrived the kids went straight to the pool (and in fact spent a lot of the next week there!) and then we all went down to the beach - too rough to swim in August, though we could play in the waves. Beautiful, and with no-one there. The different spots in the garden, and variety of places to sit was wonderful - from sofas under the covered terrace, to hammocks looking out over the ocean, to a table and benches where we had our sundowner gins - with Chianka and then Suranga bringing us freshly cooked poppadums and then bringing lights out as the sun went down. The inside of the house was equally gorgeous. Breakfasts were delicious, and Pushpa would prepare whatever we asked for - her cooking was so great that we had Sri Lankan breakfasts as well as suppers! Everyday morning after breakfast we would talk to her about what we wanted for supper (including curries without chili for our daughter who doesn't like hot food) and then either we would get the ingredients if we were passing the shops or she or Susantha would go out and get them. The system of being billed for your ingredients only (and the tuk tuks if needed to go and get them, plus for Pushpa to go home if she stayed late cooking) was wonderful, and meant we were eating delicious food, accompanied by whatever drinks we wanted, at incredibly cheap prices. A real bonus. Chianka or Suranga would heat up the food and serve us, and then clear it all away for us - a complete treat to be so looked after. All in all staying at the Villa Golden was like being at our own little private hotel. Susantha, Puspha, Malanie, Chianka and Suranga were all utterly charming and helpful - sorting out whatever we asked, and even doing more (such as Pushpa taking home and hemming the sarong our son bought, and her and Susantha bringing us herbs from their garden to take home!). A wonderful wonderful relaxing stay in a beautiful place - we adored it and hope to come back soon. Thanks to Bart and the team for creating such a paradise.

We spent 15 days there with friends and 4 young children. It was fantastic! The villa, the garden, the pool, the sea view: everything was amazing!! The staff is so nice and helpful. Pushpa cooks wonderful meals. The children had a lot of fun. They wanted to move there!

“Golden, indeed!”
Reviewed 28 June 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Totally relaxed after our stay at beautiful Villa Golden. I was there with my wife and we both had the best time of our lives! A big thanks to the staff: Pushpa and Sosante. You are the best! I will send you the pictures, by the way.
Everything was great! We loved relaxing by the pool or on the terrace next to the beach or on the lounge sofa on,the veranda. Or in one of the hammocks. Haha, yes it 's true: we were not really into exercising over there... Went to see a temple nearby and the Dutch Fort in Galle, which was great. And some very nice restaurants not far from the villa. Kingfisher in Unawatuna: wow! The rest of our stay at Villa Golden we prefered the garden, the pool and the beach. I can still hear those soothing waves! Our room was just wonderful and the breakfasts were so tasty. Two times we had some rain, But this was our best holiday ever! And... yes, we will come back!!!
