About Sonali

South Point Villa was built as the our beach holiday home.

Although it was built in 2004 we purchased antique doors and window dating back to the British and Dutch period, when they ruled Sri Lanka. All details have been looked into. Staying at South Point Villa and South Point Abbey is like staying in a Sri Lankan home with an excellent and personalized service by staff who has been in the family for many years.

South Point Abbey was a 200 year old house walls built with coral beautifully restored. The clay tiles are the original old tiles which are very cooling to the feet.

The owners live in Colombo with their two sons.

Sonali purchased this villa in 2016

Why Sonali chose Southern Province

The owners fell in love with the location and knew this was the perfect spot to built their dream holiday home. The beautiful coral formation in the sea and soft golden sandy beach was perfect.

South Point Abbey -4 bedroom luxury family villa on the beach
average rating of 5.0 based on 8 reviews


  • 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.

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.

It was all a dream!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 9 people staying at the Abbey and honestly we were all blown out of our minds by the beauty of the house, the private beach, the gorgeous infinity pool, the garden and of course the kindness and discretion of the staff. We want to thank you Sonali for this incredible stay! Everything was made so easy: whenever we asked for some info we got it, the transport to and fro the airport was arranged last minute, the re-booking after our first stay was a life saver. We honestly feel like we have a second home in Kathaluwa now :) Hat goes off to Mr Gamini for organizing everything, Mr Shanta who cooked GREAT food with the catch of the day, Mrs Sumali who is always smiling and our favorite Prageeth aka the YES man!

Outstanding House for Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

I will try not to use too many superlatives in order to give a balanced view of our stay! We have just returned from 7 nights in the Abbey - family of five with 3 children aged 10, 9 & 6, my husband and I plus his mother who is 81 year old diabetic Sri Lankan - quite a gang! From the moment I first contacted Sonali it was clear that she runs a tight and efficient ship! Her driver Upali picked us up in Colombo - their van is big and safe and has a number of seat-belts and he is a confident and safe driver who is very calm - this is beneficial when driving in SL!

SERVICE: the staff of 6 are trained to standards that we would be challenged to find anywhere else. We typically stay in 5* hotels but chef Shantha, housekeeper Sujith and others were capable of fulfilling our every whim whilst never being intrusive. The children could wander into the kitchen for fresh fruit drinks at any time (or a quick snack!), each meal was presented with flair and flourish and the table decorations take your breath away! Rooms and bathrooms kept spotless and the entire property was kept sparkling and gleaming throughout our stay. FOOD: mouth-watering, delicious and tempered to the right degree of spiciness' depending on your palate. All dietary needs catered for and we were treated to all sorts of foodie delights. Marvellous fresh fruit, fresh fish and curries of every description.

HOUSE: charming and yes, slightly rustic. Very efficient air-cons which were lovely at the end of the day, but also lots of ceiling fans which kept us cool. House is kept spotless, beds made and bathrooms cleaned daily. About 10 m from the sea, resulting in a very cool ocean breeze throughout the day. ENVIRON: softest sandy beach, rabbits, charming school opposite (we spent the morning). Meet Nimali the sewing lady who run up local costumes & dresses and sarongs for us; go to Marissa beach for good swimming; can also swim in front of villa. We released 43 turtles into the sea and kids say it was a high-light of the trip, together with a fishing trip on Lake Koggala which SouthPoint will arrange. We caught some fish and bought crab for our curry and saw cinammon bark being peeled - all wonderful and earthy and simple. We will return - our children cried upon leaving the staff and the house - truly a holiday of a lifetime!
