Beautiful villa with exceptional views

We had the most fantastic stay at Suriyawatta. Sanjeewa and his team were exceptional in the way they looked after us, nothing was too much for them. Food was amazing, both for the adults and children, every day was a feast. The villa itself is beautifully appointed, with a well thought out design that allows plenty of space for children to run around. Lots of lovely spots to relax in the garden or by the pool. The view is outstanding, we sat watching the ocean for hours. Location wise it is lovely and peaceful, yet close enough to Galle (30 mins by car max) and a short Tuk Tuk to the surfing beaches around weligama. The only negative was having to leave!! Thank you to the whole team for a memorable stay.

Brilliant family beach villa

Located in Turtle Bay in Weligama, Suriyawatta is a very special villa designed with barefoot family holidays in mind. We were a family of 9 - 3 couples and 2 teenagers and a tween. I've stayed in more than a handful of villas on Sri Lanka's south coast and Suriyawatta is the clear winner! The location - perched on a hill side overlooking the Indian Ocean -- only a few minutes from the surf schools and conveniences of Weligama, walking distance to Cape Weligama Hotel (if you wanted a spa experience or a fancy night out). It's about 45 mins to Galle. But honestly, you won't want to leave. The house and garden have been designed to allow everyone their "own space together." There are ceiling fans every few feet on the wide verandah of the main house allowing the shade-seekers to see the ocean and the pool from the comfort of the verandah. The shadows in the garden from the frangipani trees are magical. There's a sound system (SONOS) with garden speakers. There's an infinity edge pool which enjoys both shade and sun. There is a seasonally safe swimming beach two houses down -- the walk along the beach is only possible at low tide and involves scrambling down some rocks, but it's super easy to walk from the house gate down the beach road (100 paces at most!). Sanjeewa and the household staff are wonderful. They are present but not hovering. The chef is very willing to try recipes. The house menu affords plenty of options for diverse palettes/tastes. We'll be back!

Best Villa Rented in Sri Lanka so far!

I would highly recommend Suriyawatta. We have rented a few villas in Sri Lanka and by far this one has been the best. Beautiful location, stunning views. Access to a private beach. Great staff. Tastefully furnished. Good food Everything was just perfect (Okay just one tiny thing - I would recommend they keep a range of toiletries in the bathroom) We had a great stay and really hope to be back

A magical place!

If you're looking for a true private holiday, this is the place! From arrival to check out we felt so well looked after and amazed about the house. It's about 2,5 hrs from Colombo airport. There are big gates when entering with security at the street gate and by the sea gate including the beautiful dog Lola. We slept 5 adults and to babies in this house but we had 2 rooms empty. One we used for massages. Lovely and very cheap. We did yoga one day with a local instructor which was fantastic. The staff are very helpful and kind. Chef cooked great meals which we decided ourselves. Try the hoppers in the morning w an egg in. Local breakfast - yummy. Lots of lovely fruits. We had BBQ (red snapper) one evening under the tree. Delicious and stunning setting. The pool is lovely and it's great for kids as there's a small shall area of the pool. But the pool is also fenced off from the house so it's safe for the kids. Sanjeeva- house manager was very professional and speaks perfect English. Around the area there's not much to see or do. I'd suggest you just stay in the house and enjoy the pool and the sea. Thank you very much again for looking after us.
