This is an amazing villa, and the photos really don't do it justice! The place is so much bigger than it looks, but the high ceilings and large furniture makes it all look to scale. It's not - the place is huge with enormous bedrooms and bathrooms, and vast open public areas, all beautifully set up and decorated. The garden, pool and beautifully integrated water slide are a delight, and the gate at the bottom of the garden leads right down to the remarkable beach with it's yellow, black and red sand. The waves can be very powerful so beware, but it's a very picturesque beach. The staff are great and we would all highly recommend the food packages available - you're quite a long way from any restaurants, so it's definitely your best option, and well priced compared to eating out at anywhere with similar quality food. I really can't recommend this enough - it's a brilliant villa for a family get-together, or for a group of friends to use as we did when attending a friend's wedding nearby.

The best we have ever stayed at

From the moment we stepped into the villa we were amazed by the luxurious but homely atmosphere. It was very child friendly and the staff led by Roshan did a wonderful job in making us feel welcome and to provide us with all our needs. We couldn't have asked for more. We highly recommend Meda Gedara as the best holiday spot in the area anyone could ever have with their family or friends. Thank you to all the staff at Meda Gedara for looking after us so well and making our stay memorable. We definitely will be back.

My family and I stayed here for a week, we didn’t want to leave! The house is impeccable, they have thought of everything from an entertainment room for kids to a water slide for the pool. We had the most incredible time. We definitely hope to visit again.

If you look at the pictures and read all the reviews you know this place is something special. But nothing prepares you for the moment you really enter this villa! This place is magic with the best staff and food you ever experienced on your holiday (thanks Roshan and team, you are the best). Actually this is not a true holiday villa, it feels like home! And we are already looking forward to return...

A haven of luxury and sophistication

Meda Gedara villa is a haven of luxury and sophistication. From the exquisite yet relaxed living areas, the luxurious bedrooms with private bathrooms, the panoramic views of the indian ocean to the expansive garden areas with infinity pool, water slide and plunge pool. The staff led by Roshan (chef and manager) made our stay utterly memorable with their attention to detail and the most amazing meals. Nothing was too much trouble for them! They organised everything including a day trip to Galle, a visit to the nearby surf beach even some cooking lessons! All we had to to do was relax and enjoy the villa and its increadible surroundings. Meda Gedara is also very family friendly. The children never got tired of the water slide or relaxing in the cinema room after dinner.

Beautifully decorated beach villa

The attention to detail is apparent the moment you step through the large antique double fronted doors onto the beautiful hand-made Vietnamese tiles. Your gaze is immediately taken through the sitting area and into the garden with an incredible view of the alluring ocean. In between this staggering view, on a lower terraced deck, is the main swimming pool with sloping beach-inspired access ideal for small children as well as the more mature swimmer.

A teak staircase winds its way upstairs, past vast windows onto the 6-bedroom lined landing. Each bedroom is unique and filled with 4 poster beds, fitted mosquito nets, air con, comfortable seating, interesting curios and artwork; all bathrooms are delightful. A children’s bunk room cleverly has a larger bottom bed for a nanny. The master suite has an adjoining room with twin beds for smaller children.

Perfect for a couple without children, is another bedroom, charmingly housed in the Garden suite. It looks out across the lovely lawn on which many a SL vs ‘The rest of the World’ cricket match is held. An umpire’s hut is appropriately situated close to the action on the other side, whilst also doubling up as a look-out point to the beach, or as a shaded ‘refreshment pavilion’.

Hidden amongst the tropical planting lies a 74-foot water slide snaking its way into a plunge pool that rather generously is separated from the main pool allowing hours of fun whilst the less frantic can relax in calm waters. A large terrace with comfortable loungers, provides ample tanning spots.

Discreetly positioned further down the garden, is a stunning and spacious Yoga pavilion with wonderful views out to sea. The beautifully landscaped garden ensures this is a gentle and quiet area perfect for yoga and meditation, whilst hammocks swing between the palm trees, down by the beach.

Returning to the house there is a brightly coloured and cushioned ‘TV room’ for exhausted children, it’s conveniently nestled right in the middle of the villa, it has a ‘peep window’ so that parents can check on snoozing kids without disturbing them. There is also a wonderful grown up ‘Cinema room’ with projector and huge screen.

The chef is excellent and cooks an expansive range of cuisine and is very happy to offer cooking lessons on site. They have created amazing set menus so that no decisions need to be made daily, there are also inspired vegetarian and vegan menus. They have a separate kids menu. The chef is supported by a fantastically efficient team of 7 staff, seamlessly working behind the scenes.
This villa encompasses every creature comfort, in abundance. A spoiling home away from home, with luxuriously large beds, reassuringly lovely linen and a shortage of nothing.

Meda Gedara is a fabulous house that exudes wonderful energy, and promises a fun and very comfortable holiday for any group, large or small, of all ages.
