Fantastic!

  • 5 out of 5
We had a truly fantastic time at Southpoint Abbey. We stayed there for 2 weeks with our two children, aged 2 and 4. The staff at the house were lovely, and couldn’t do more for us – the cooking was amazing and they toned down the spice for the children. The children would go into the kitchen to watch Janaka cooking the meals. The house itself is beautiful – really airy and stylish with large rooms and clean bathrooms. The pool was great for the kids and it was lovely to be right on an amazing beach. My son (aged 4) and husband went off fishing in the early mornings accompanied by one of the staff from Southpoint Villa next door. The owners of the property (who live in Colombo) came to see us and were really friendly and helpful – our kids played with their sons on the beach and they took us on a boat trip on Koggala lake. They are doing a lot of work raising money for local people and a lot of the proceeds of the Abbey and Villa go to charity. Although the property was on quite a busy road, we were not disturbed by the noise, and you weren’t really aware of this once inside the house. Once you crossed the road you could walk into the lanes within the village. We walked to the station (5 minutes) and took the train to Galle (about 20 mins) which the kids loved. The people in the village are really friendly and loved to interact with the kids. We would thoroughly recommend this property, and think about our whole holiday with great fondness and happy memories. Sue, Chris, Thomas (4yrs) and Ella (2yrs)

Owner's Response: We at South Point intend giving our guests an unforgettable experience. Our staff take excellent care of our guests and look into details to make their stay memorable. Our aim is to give the best service.

Staying at South Point Villa and Abbey is like staying in your own private beach villa.

The villas are kept spotless and daily fresh flowers are kept in the living areas. The beach in front of the villas are swept daily. The housekeeper has been in the family for over 50 years and most of the other staff have been with the owners from the inception.( 2004 )

Sri Lankan meals are served in clay pots or on banana leaves. Barbeques can be arranged on the beach, garden or near the pool. Fresh lobsters and crabs are brought alive to the villa on order only.

We use local products and handlooms to help the community. Staying at South Point Villa is to experience gracious Sri Lankan style living.

Outstanding House for Family Holiday

  • 5 out of 5
I will try not to use too many superlatives in order to give a balanced view of our stay! We have just returned from 7 nights in the Abbey - family of five with 3 children aged 10, 9 & 6, my husband and I plus his mother who is 81 year old diabetic Sri Lankan - quite a gang! From the moment I first contacted Sonali it was clear that she runs a tight and efficient ship! Her driver Upali picked us up in Colombo - their van is big and safe and has a number of seat-belts and he is a confident and safe driver who is very calm - this is beneficial when driving in SL!

SERVICE: the staff of 6 are trained to standards that we would be challenged to find anywhere else. We typically stay in 5* hotels but chef Shantha, housekeeper Sujith and others were capable of fulfilling our every whim whilst never being intrusive. The children could wander into the kitchen for fresh fruit drinks at any time (or a quick snack!), each meal was presented with flair and flourish and the table decorations take your breath away! Rooms and bathrooms kept spotless and the entire property was kept sparkling and gleaming throughout our stay. FOOD: mouth-watering, delicious and tempered to the right degree of spiciness' depending on your palate. All dietary needs catered for and we were treated to all sorts of foodie delights. Marvellous fresh fruit, fresh fish and curries of every description.
HOUSE: charming and yes, slightly rustic. Very efficient air-cons which were lovely at the end of the day, but also lots of ceiling fans which kept us cool. House is kept spotless, beds made and bathrooms cleaned daily. About 10 m from the sea, resulting in a very cool ocean breeze throughout the day. ENVIRON: softest sandy beach, rabbits, charming school opposite (we spent the morning). Meet Nimali the sewing lady who run up local costumes & dresses and sarongs for us; go to Marissa beach for good swimming; can also swim in front of villa. We released 43 turtles into the sea and kids say it was a high-light of the trip, together with a fishing trip on Lake Koggala which SouthPoint will arrange. We caught some fish and bought crab for our curry and saw cinammon bark being peeled - all wonderful and earthy and simple. We will return - our children cried upon leaving the staff and the house - truly a holiday of a lifetime!

Wunderschönes Haus

  • 5 out of 5
Ich kann dieses Haus nur wärmstens empfeheln. Es ist vieeeeeeeel schöner als uf den Fotos dargestellt. Wir waren als 6 köpfige Familie dort im Alter von 28-55 Jahren. Das allerbeste an diesem Haus ist der Service. Man fühlt sich iw ein Filmstar und unser Koch hat jeden Abend landestypisch gekocht. Wir würden jederzeit wieder dorthin fahren, dann aber NUR in dieses Haus!!
