Well done. Great place to stay.

My family and I stayed here some time ago. I never got around to writing a review about this place. From pick up the airport right to the end of our vacation all was fantastic. The decor in the bungalow is very tasteful. It has two bedrooms with AC. Both bedrooms adjoin to the bathroom. The terrace just as you walk out the main entrance is an excellent place to sit in the evening and watch the sun set. Listen to the ocean, talk, play board games, read. It has great WiFi and the added benefit if you have a mobile with a local number...when our credit ran down; a quick message to Sudath and we could call again within minutes. The food. We had breakfast each morning. Bread. Eggs (fried or scrambled) lots of fruit bananas, pineapple and melon. Toast. Coffee and tea. This was served around 8.30 to 9am. We also had dinner in the evening. Mostly fish or chicken curry with rice. The price for dinner was very reasonable. The food was always hot to warm. Never ever cold. The on site security and staff were polite and couteous. So what makes this place work so well? The price is very reasonable for the great service you get. For example on a full moon day you are informed the night before that if you want chicken or meat you should make the order because on full moon day many places don't sell meat. Secondly, it's how it's all presented and completed right down to the cleaning of the house. You never feel imposed upon. I stayed in one other place but in comparison I would not hesitate to book here again. It's great for a family 2 kids. Also what I liked a lot was the house book. In the house book you can find information about transport costs, ordering dinner etc. Everything is clearly presented. What else can I say? Communication with Sudath was very easy, by email and whatsapp. In addition, Manju (tuk tuk driver). With local phone from Sudath we could explore Galle and many other places and then just call Manju and he would pick us up. For sure we always told Manju approx time and we would call him 30 or 40mins before we planned to leave. Would I return? Absolutely. A really great getaway place from mainland Europe. Circa 12 hrs door to door via Dubai or Istanbul.

Stunning!

We've stayed for 11 nights in December with our family and absolutely loved it! The villa is beautiful and equipped with everything you need, in a stunning location! From the terrace & garden it's just a few steps into the ocean with its ~1.5 km 'private' beach. Occasionally we've met local families or fishermen & a handful other tourists staying at one of the few beach houses - otherwise this stretch of fine sandy beach is completely quiet and private! Sudath & his staff are so friendly and welcoming, they helped us with all our wishes and needs beyond expectations. We especially enjoyed the home-cooked dinners on our terrace, or some fresh fruit juices & coconuts while relaxing under the trees! There are also a lot of options for day trips & tours and Sudath helped us with recommendations & arrangements! For example, the tourist town Hikkaduwa with its beach-bars & restaurants is just a few km down the road for a change of scenery and also trips to Galle or Mirissa are no problem. In our case, we enjoyed this little spot of paradise so much that we almost didn't want to go anywhere else! I'd return anytime for this tranquil perfect holiday spot! The pick-up & return service to the airport is available and makes it so easy to get here in just ~2 hours. Hope to be back soon!

"A hidden gem"

This was the last stop on our two week holiday in Sri Lanka and we definitely saved the best till last. Sudath is a genuine "Mr Fixit" and had helped us earlier in our holiday by arranging transport services to pick us up from the airport and take us to various destinations all along the west and south coast. They say pictures never lie and whilst that may be true in theory, they can sometimes be taken in such a way as to hide some less desirable aspects. The pictures of this villa, the beach and the wonderful food are all true reflections and the location is stunning. There were 4 of us in our family group - mum, dad and two adult children and the layout of the villa was ideal. The staff were friendly and the night housekeeper was a true gentleman. Sudath made his daily visit and was always willing to help with any questions we had. This is a true paradise retreat and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Thank you for making the last few days of our holiday truly memorable. We will be back!

Description

2 bedroom villa right on the beach

The town of Ambalangoda in the Galle district in Sri Lanka is known for the renowned ‘Devil’ mask dances and the views of the Indian Ocean. Although, the place sees lesser tourists visiting its shores, if it is a quiet and calming holiday you are looking forward to then Nil Villa is the perfect spot. Besides a few fishermen and children, you have yourself and your loved ones to enjoy with. Take your time and relax in the tranquility afforded by this town, as you relish the villa’s rustic and authentic Sri Lankan charm and who knows, you might be lucky enough to witness an actual mask dance!

Two, well-furnished and air-conditioned bedrooms are available to guests at the villa. The master bedroom is furnished with a canopied double bed, featuring sheer, white drapes that are perfect for a good night’s sleep. The second bedroom is furnished with two beds complete with mosquito nets. There are writing desks in each of the bedrooms, in case you wish to tidy up some work. A bathroom that is fully-equipped with amenities, and sports a similar rustic design is adjoined to both the bedrooms. It is equipped to provide solar hot water as an environmentally friendly initiative. Nil Villa offers guests the chance to have the entire beach to themselves, as the villa extends out to its sandy shores in the most glorious way. You simply have to walk down to the sandy coast and enjoy endless views of the Indian Ocean, as the tide rides high or low depending on season, swim to your heart’s content, sunbathe and lounge on your beach towels without any disturbances. With swaying coconut palm trees fringing the periphery of the villa, and lush greenery on the gardens, this is a restful and relaxing spot for anyone to enjoy a holiday with friends and family.

With a rustic aesthetic in its interiors and quarters, the villa prides itself in giving you a holiday home that celebrates the heritage of Sri Lanka within its walls. There are polished cement dividers in the living area, for an antique ambiance, wooden ceiling, and whitewashed walls. With antiques lying around, you will feel at home and at ease while you relax on the comfortable sofas. A library lined with bestsellers collected with care over the years is at your disposal!

The black, wooden doorway leads to the terrace which has been furnished with a dining area for four, overlooking the stunning panorama encompassing the ocean and the vast skies. There is ample lighting in the living area casting a cozy glow in the room to create a nice ambiance for everyone to relax. The kitchen is an open-concept and is fitted with all the amenities and modern appliances with a kettle, toaster, stove etc.
