The kitchenette was really useful where we could make our own tea/coffee and lunch if necessary. Although we had a great week of sunshine the villa is designed for year round staying. I can imagine being in the glass walled sitting room during the monsoon watching the sea crash onto the beach - maybe next time. We ate in three nights and the food was excellent on each occasion. The staff did a great job all round and we plan to return. The only downside is that Ambalangoda does not have much in the way of restaurants but with the quality of the food at the villa this is a minor issue. The tuk-tuk drivers are very safe, timely and knowledgeable (and patient). All in all a great week. Well done Green Parrot Villa and staff.

                                                                                                    This extremely aptly named cool retreat is comfortable and elegantly furnished, and we were very well looked after all week by Kingsley and his team, who cooked excellent Sri Lankan dinners for us every night (and showed me how to make the delicious aubergine dish). Kingsley was also very helpful in suggesting day and half day outings and booking a driver for us. We enjoyed cocktails on the terrace and cooling off in the pool, and we both had a marvellously relaxing hour-long massage at the house. !n September, just pre-monsoon season, the sea was too rough to swim in from the beach opposite the villa, however our walks along the picture postcard beach were perfect, and the sunsets spectacular. We saw nothing to suggest a need for a 24 hour security guard on the property but were nevertheless reassured by his presence. The charm, comfort and coolness within are a contrast to the bustle, obvious poverty and general untidiness without, but it is also only 12 years since the tsunami hit many parts of this coastline. On the Galle road there is a tsunami museum and a brutally graphic memorial to the many hundreds who died here. We enjoyed our visit to Galle, which is more touristy than the busy, teeming Ambalangoda, and has some more upmarket shops. We did a long day trip to the Udawalawe national park and enjoyed the safari experience although it would have been better to go earlier or later in the day for an opportunity to see the elephant herd. Kingsley will take you in the tuk-tuk to the river just 15 minutes away for a lovely 2 hour boat trip, mangroves and all, not forgetting the obligatory trip to the Buddhist temple on one of the islands. We ate lunch in randomly chosen roadside restaurants on two occasions, sticking to vegetable curries, which were very good. On your outings try to have handy a collection of 100 and 200 (50p and £1) rupee notes for tips; these are small sums but make a difference to guides, waiters and drivers. Whether you just chill out at the villa, or use it as a base for sight-seeing trips, Samudrawasa is a wonderful place to stay. I felt real regret on leaving it, and Sri Lanka.
