“Excellent from top to bottom”
The decoration and attention to detail, the facilities, the staff, the food, the location (5 mins walk from the beach, 5 mins tuk-tuk ride to Weligama town). Just wow.
The review about feeling like a millionaire sums it up. Relaxing atmosphere, so close to nature (monkeys and iguanas living next door) tiny fly eating geckos and regular bird and chipmonk visitors. The excursions were fab, releasing 2 day old turtles into the sea, seeing whales and dolphins and the elephant safari, out of this world.
The food amazing!! Recommend the tuna (to die for) and red snapper. They even catered for our fussy children.
The staff were so conscious and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble.
The only negative... going home. I wish it was the hotel California instead.
We came to South Point Villa for the Sun, heat and the ocean but we will come back for the food and friendship. The chefs cooked us curried prawns, curried chicken and fish. Breakfast has been made for us every morning by our house maid Indrani. My wife and I love shopping locally so we go to the small fruit market around the corner and buy bananas, papaya, pineapple and passion fruit. The store by the railway tracks has bread delivered every day so that completes breakfast. We have had the chef make lunch for us a few times as well. The Calamari is great, as is the BLT if you are looking for a taste of home. We have also had butter fried cuttlefish and simple egg sandwiches. Other days we have cooked for ourselves and worked our way through the ample leftovers.
We stayed in The Chalet for the month of March 2018. The house was perfect for the two of us. The Chalet has two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a wonderful outdoor area. The overhead fan keeps us cool and the pool is only a few steps away. We have been able to use the villas next to the ocean when they have been empty and the ocean view at all three of them is great. The villas are all meticulously maintained by the army of gardeners and maids. We were offered a free boat cruise on Lake Kogalla where the rental Cottage is located while there we saw monkeys and eagles. A stop at Cinnamon island completed some of our souvenir shopping for friends at home.
We have enjoyed meeting all of the staff at South Point Villas. Mr. Gamini has been a wonderful resource for local knowledge answering all of our questions. Anil (Mr. Fixit) has been ready willing and able to fix any little issues that have come up. Mrs. Sonali the owner has been a pleasure to deal with quickly replying to emails and answering any of our questions. Our house maid Indrani is a treasure. She has made our breakfast, made out beds and kept the house clean. When we moved to one of the other houses for the afternoon, she followed. She made sure we got across the road ok and had everything we wanted when we arrived.
Monkeys, Peacocks and a Mongoose visited the garden as well as many other local birds.
We enjoyed everything about our month here and happily recommend it to anyone looking for a great vacation in Sri Lanka.
