“Splendid House - Quiet Location - Don't Try To Self-Cater”
Reviewed 9 January 2011 for a stay in December 2010

Other reviewers have done justice to this house: large, airy, cool, well-furnished and -equipped, stylish. It is a lovely place to spend a week. If you want somewhere to bask and be looked after in comfort it is perfect. Otherwise, it is off the beaten track and there are no facilities within walking distance which means that a trip to Negombo is needed for any shopping - and you will need to organise this in advance if you don't have a hire car. The cook, Manith, and the houseboy, Nalin, are always on hand and willing to help. The owner, Ravi, was keen to make our stay as agreeable as possible, and succeeded. The villa is next to the lagoon but there is no beach - swim in the pool, not the lagoon. The weather was abysmal while we were there but that didn't take the gloss off our stay. If hot, sunny weather was on the cards I would be back tomorrow.

“A luxurious hideaway”
Reviewed 19 December 2010 for a stay in November 2010

We had the unexpected pleasure of discovering The Lagoon Villa as an emergency alternative to a beachside stay when the hotel let us down last minute. The Villa is beautifully designed and furnished with impeccable taste, taking luxury to the next level.

It wouldn't be discovered by chance - tucked away in a small village about 15 minutes ride out of Negombo, but wow, what a gem of a find! The ultimate thrill was having our own personal chef who specialised in both Sri Lankan and Italian food. It doesn't get much better than that.

The caretaker, Nalin, couldn't have been more helpful. He droped us at a store one day and even came in with us to make sure we got the best price!

We loved our reading time on the balcony looking out onto the lagoon and lazy afternoons by the pool in the beautiful garden.

A truly relaxing stay and one which we wouldn't hesitate to repeat.

highly recommended.
