The most relaxing week ever

We spent 6 nights at Mandalay villa and we could not had better stay for our first time to SriLanka. Ancient local character house in perfect harmony with Koggala lake. Gorgeous by all means. My kids and us were spoiled by chef Chinthaka with all his amazing dishes, a true travel to SriLanka cuisine. The staff wad extremly helpfull and always ready to make our stay a dream. Thanks Dalsi, Nimal and Peyanesa for being there. We had friends for dinner in Mandalay and chef Chinthaka suggested to have a local traditional show with fireworks: it was just mind blowing for all of us. I recommand it strongly. Lot of unforgettable memories for all of us. We will be back soon!!!!

Ultimate relaxing family holiday!

We had such an amazing time at Mandalay. The staff were so lovely and looked after us without bombarding. The pool was the perfect temperature and we enjoyed 7 nights to just relax, read our books, swim, catch a tuk tuk to the local restaurants and beaches and basically have a lovely, relaxing time (as relaxed as it can be with 3 children!). Our girls are 4 and 6 and relatively strong swimmers, the pool is divine however it was only 6 year old who could stand in it so something to be mindful of. We had monkeys leap from tree to tree around us which was lots of fun plus there were a few local dogs hanging around but they were lovely and very relaxed and unobtrusive. The Chef is amazing - much better at the local Sri Lankan cuisine than the western style so we ended up doing it the Sri Lankan way for breakfast lunch and dinner! Delicious! Huge room upstairs and downstairs had two single beds that actually fit our 3 (king size singles). Internet / Wifi was available and we took our Apple TV which was great although they had plenty of DVDs to choose from. All in all I can highly recommend the Mandalay Villa - we had a great stay!

Best of both worlds - on a large tranquil lake and next to Sri Lanka's stunning beaches.

The villa is located on Koggala Lake and only 5 minutes from the beaches - 10 minutes from Weligama and 40 minutes to Galle Fort. The three-bedroom (one large master bedroom, one twin and one double room) villa is set on the lake with its own boating dock where a local fisherman can take you to visit the nearby Cinnamon Island and Spice Island which we highly recommend. The fisherman also took our children fishing to their absolute delight and the fish was then placed on the grill by the in-villa chef. The villa represents a simple and relaxing way of living. The villa has a large pool in the heart of the property so if you are travelling with children it is great to watch them from the outdoor dining area or even from the top floor master bedroom. The two younger children in cots upstairs under the large oversized mosquito nets, whilst our younger two slept in the twin rooms downstairs. It was an adventure for all the family and the convenient location meant that we could pop out to nearby restaurants or spend the day in Galle Fort.

An epitome of Sri Lankan style of architecture, Mandalay is set in the sleepy village of Kathaluwa on Lake Koggala. Located about 700 metres to Koggala Beach, the villa captures spectacular views across the water to the mystical, uninhabited island of Madol Doova. It is also at convenient distance from the historical city of Galle, which is home to the Galle fort, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The villa offers the perfect location to enjoy a typical Sri Lankan rural experience while being at an easy distance from local attraction and beautiful beaches.
