We had a wonderful week at Peacock Point. The villa sits in a small estate comprising tea, cinnamon and other crops; you will eat some of this produce during the stay. The room was clean and air conditioning and internet worked well. The staff were excellent and cooked us some fantastic curries in the evening - quite the best we had while staying in Sri Lanka. If you enjoy peace and tranquility (not always easy to find in Sri Lanka) then this is an excellent place. It is to be noted that its location is a 10 minute tuk-tuk ride from restaurants and the beach highway - tuk-tuk costs about £1.50 to the beach; there are some good places to eat about 10 minutes away by tuk-tuk - we enjoyed Ceylon Cafe. If you don't go out, the chef will leave you food so you can dine in. The owners were very helpful in this respect as they gave us a local mobile phone and the useful numbers that we needed - very thoughtful so we could call up a tuk-tuk when needed. We spent time cycling and at the beach but always enjoyed coming back to Peacock Point in the evenings - it felt very restful.
We also really liked here was the guided tour of the estate by Malika; the peace and quiet; the huge bed; the staff. Recommended.
We spent several days at Lakeview Villa enjoying the peace and tranquillity before heading to Far Horizons on the coast.
The villa, more of a colonial mansion, sits on the shores of the large and impressive lake at Koggala. The villa contains every creature comfort that you could ask for. It starts with the wow factor of the infinity pool overlooking the lake as soon as you walk through the front door and just gets better.
Four large en-suite bedrooms, all with stunning views and a multitude of places to sit, relax and unwind making the property ideal for those wanting to get away from it all. There’s even a cinema room, very popular with the children.
Lesley was there to welcome us; she was great during the booking, and she left us with Sonali and Lasantha who take complete care of you, Sonali’s cooking is something else, just amazing.
We loved our time at Lakeview and would love to visit again, for longer next time. I would highly recommend a stay at Lakeview for utter peace & quiet.
