Beautiful villa set in vast, lush grounds with a golden beach on the doorstep.
The villa is well located and a short Tuk, Tuk ride away from ATM & supermarket as well as Galle Fort, which we enjoyed visiting for shopping and eating out.
The Villa is right on a busy road but it is gated and this does not affect ur stay as the rooms are all to the front and we were not aware of any other noise but the crashing of waves on the beach.
The decor is beautiful with local wood carvings and homely touches. We would have preferred a washing machine but Susantha did arranged for our laundry to be done for a fee.
Initially we were concerned about the 24 hour staff but they were all lovely and very discrete.
Villa cleaned daily and sheets & towels washed every 2nd or 3rd day. Delicious heathy Breakfast included every morning too.
We enjoyed several evening meals prepared by Pushpa & Yasuri which were delicious and my husband very much enjoyed a cookery lesson from them.
Susantha was a great host, nothing was too much trouble. He organised our outings, giving us local advice. Always smiling and approachable.
The night guard was so friendly and it did feel good having him lock up and patrol the garden at night.
We all had a fabulous sleep in the very comfortable, net draped beds and only got 2 bites the entire holiday.
All in All, we had the most special vacation on this beautiful island and hope very much to return to Villa Golden again in the future.
“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.
