Lakeview Villa is a truly magical place, it really made my heart sing. The views are idyllic and the villa itself is built to make the most of the location, everywhere you turn you see a different aspect of the view.
Our 3 children LOVED playing in the garden and we all loved watching the monkeys swing from branch to branch as we swam in the pool.
In addition to the villa itself the staff at the villa are truly fantastic. They are kind and went out of their way to make our stay special. Sonali's cooking was delicious and she made meals that we could sit down and eat together as a family, all of which were very tasty.
Thanks so much, we will definitely be back!
For those with high expectations and experience of various places across the world, then Cinnamon House will quench your thirst for a high-end, luxurious holiday. We have stayed in a similar house (designed by the same architect) in Lamu in Kenya but this house won hands down with its ideal location and amazing staff. It’s basically your own boutique hotel, right on the doorstep of a private beach which you can surf from, or 10 minutes in a tuk tuk from main Weligama beach where easier surf is and more eating places. The staff did absolutely everything for us when we asked. They did our food shopping, ordered tuk tuks and taxis, kept the house immaculate, prepared our bedrooms every morning and night and generally made sure that we had the most wonderful holiday. Jianyha is the main man running the house and he was wonderful. Calm and in control, friendly with a very high level of professionalism. The chef prepared us the most delicious foods from local curries to even the best spag bol the kids had ever had!
There were 8 of us and the villa was huge and spacious so no one ever felt cramped. In fact it’s easy to lose yourself in the villa.
The pool area is designed as it’s shaded most of the day which was perfect in the searing heat and the sea breeze cools everything done.
Little things that made all the difference to us was: comfy beds with great pillows, beds prepared at night with a different display of flowers or towel design every night, amazing views, air con, outstanding staff, meals when we wanted.
But to sum it up, Heena and the house staff made the stay at this wonderful and unique place, like no other holiday.
I would impress upon anyone to choose this villa and this location.
It really was out of this world.
