About Sonali Gunaratne

South Point Villas comprising three luxurious beach villas and located next to each other with a total of 14 bedrooms are family owned properties on the Southern coastal belt of Sri Lanka.

South Point Villa, the first property, was built in 2004 as our family, beach holiday home - to escape from the city life we lead daily.

The second, South Point Abbey, was restored in 2006.

The third, South Point Ocean was built in 2016.

As Sri Lankans, we extend warmth and courtesy toward everyone we meet, and the staff at our villas is well trained to receive every guest in like manner.

As the owner of the properties, I ensure that every villa is clean, spotless and well maintained.

Once the booking is confirmed, a detailed newsletter is sent to the guests outlining all relevant information.

Guests too can respond with their special requirements including any special occasion they would want to celebrate.

We can arrange the airport pick-up and we ensure the smooth arrival and departure of our guests.

On arrival at the villa, the manager and staff will welcome our guests.

I oversee the smooth running of the day to day operations, and I am contactable over the phone 24/7.

2 doctors are available to make house calls. Hospitals available in Galle. In case of an emergency, I will be there to assist our guests to channel doctors and check into hospital.

It is very important to me that our guests have a memorable stay at our villas - just let us know what you want.

Sonali Gunaratne purchased this villa in 2016

Why Sonali Gunaratne chose Ahangama

We fell in love with the location and knew this was the perfect spot to build our dream holiday home as the serenity of the quaint village was mesmerizing.

The beautiful coral formation in the sea and the soft golden sandy beach were just perfect.

The fact that there is hardly has anyone on the beach made it seem as though it’s our own beach.

The sea was inviting - the clear waters and the coral reef seemed the ideal bathing spot for my young children.

What makes this villa unique

Staying at our villas would be like living in your own private beach holiday home. We provide a personalised butler service to our guests from airport pick-up to the villa and until the airport drop off.

The staff rise early, and will be at your service to brew your morning tea or coffee. They wind up for the day only after the last guest has retired for the night.

The villas and the pools are cleaned twice a day. The beach too is swept and tidied.

There are no river mouths that lead into the sea within 20 km on either side of the villas.

Our villas are ideal for families with children, couples who want to be undisturbed, and our staff are very good with children.

Each property has both female and male staff to serve the guests.

Guests will have the privacy they seek.

The 3 beach villas are very close to the breaking of the waves and have breathtaking views of the Indian Ocean.

Fantastic!

  • 5 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.

Absolutely stunning 200 yr old Dutch house

  • 4 of 5

Eight of us stayed at South Point Abbey for two weeks. All of our needs were met by the very attentive staff, in particular Prageth, Nilusha and Sureth our chef. The house was always clean and the pool and garden areas immaculate. I was a bit shocked how busy the road outside was in 'rush hour' although the noise of the sea drowned this out. The food was always wonderful and Sureth gave us mini demonstrations which was great! The bedrooms were large and comfortable, the bathrooms spacious and the terraces perfect for reading or just chatting. Sonali, the owner, was a joy to deal with from start to finish. We did the Udawalawe safari, the elephant orphanage, the local tea plantation and Whale Watching from Mirissa. We went to Galle, the local town, and enjoyed good shops, restaurants and bars. Sri Lanka is a beautiful, lush country with much to enjoy. I found the local people always friendly and helpful, but found the roads pretty scary at times! If you want a really peaceful and relaxing holiday, I would thoroughly recommend South Point Abbey. However, beware that the sea was pretty rough and we saw lots of sea urchins!

Absolutely charming!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay in South Point Abbey. The staff were wonderful, the

house full of history, the garden and pool magnificent. The road outside can

be a little noisy at 'rush hour'. The staff could not have done more for our group

of eight! The chef gave us little demonstrations of cooking and provided more

and more interesting dishes every day! The air conditioned taxi was always at our

disposal and the staff even helped us to buy rail tickets!

We did find the sea too rough for snorkelling and quite a lot of sea urchins!

A family get together 15 of us will never forget

  • 5 of 5

We were looking at a tall order and when we looked at the criteria for our family get together. My parents in their 70's, their three sons, wives and 7 grandchildren aged between 18 and 2. This place appeared to tick every box when we booked the trip and smashed the criteria into the stratosphere when we got there. It just got better everyday, to say we didn't want to leave is an understatement.

We had 15 people so hired the Villa and the Abbey, they are next door to each other and each had a pool. Then there was the beach which was only yards away. The bedrooms are massive, air conditioned with adjoining bathrooms. They are kept pristeen by the team of wonderful staff who you barely notice. As you know with kids near a beach, and pool, sand and water was constantly dragged into the houses. You would never know it, gone, before you had chance to apologise to the staff. The rooms were all tidied and beds made before you were back from breakfast and if you wanted coffee, tea or a beer you simply had to ask and you could sit at any of the beautiful parts of the property and enjoy the sun, the shade, the peace and quiet or go and be a part of the action at whichever pool was populated by the kids that particular day.

We stayed for 12 nights and we all ate together at the Villa and spent evenings after at the Abbey. The food was first class and the chefs would cater for whatever tastes you wanted. We all love spicey food and the local dishes were superb and graded heatwise to peoples different preferences including dad who asked for super spiced and got exactly what he wanted! That was him happy for the whole fortnight. They also catered for the younger children and made excellent pizza's, soups, pastas and burgers when they fancied some less exotic food.

Everyday was made special by the staff, hand picked by Sonali who we did not meet, but we did meet her son who took the older kids quadbiking while we visited their family tea plantation. We also met her husband who dropped by to deliver another beautiful cake and a welcome bottle of wine. Nothing was too much trouble.

We ate out a couple of nights at posh hotels in Galle and realised the food at home was just as good so not worth the effort. What was lovely was taking a 2 minute tuk tuk ride to the nearby Fortress Hotel for pre dinner cocktails which we did a couple of times.
