After arriving in a thunderstorm a few hours late we were greeted by the driver at the airport and taken the hour or so to Beruwala. Throughout our 10 day stay nothing was too much trouble for Shan and Tharindu. Chris (owner) was also on site frequently and was invaluable for arranging trips, restaurant bookings and tuk tuk trips around town. The staff were great with the kids and during a thunderstorm that the kids were very scared during Shan even brought the table to the room so we could eat the meal we had ordered down there! The rooms were clean and spacious, the bedding changed every 2 days and towels provided for the pool and room. The wifi worked well (apart from after the storms but that was a wider problem) and the villa had some portable insect nets for the kids. We had the 2 downstairs rooms. The food was made to order with a small charge (around £6 per meal), the portions were large and the quality was good, Tharindu the chef deserves special mention. I'd particularly recommend the Sri Lankan curry for 2 with the various veg based curry dishes and your choice of meat as well. The gardens and pool were lovely and we had good fun looking at the birds, lizards and the house animals (pony, cow, guinea pigs, dogs, guinea fowl, chickens). We had a great time on the activities we did, nearby temple complete with big buddha and elephant, whale watching (2 hours drive to the south) where we saw blue whales, train to Hikkiduwa was hot and busy but a good experience nontheless, had a couple of days in the Cinnamon Bey hotel nearby (very good value for pool use and lunch buffet at 3k rupees for adults and free for kids under 6) the highlight for the kids was the turtle sanctuary (around 15 mins in a tuk tuk) where they let us release hatchling sea turtles into the sea at dusk. The only slight downside (hence the 4 stars and not 5) was the grout in the pool that I know Chris was addressing after we left and he had some free time. It lead to a few cuts on the kids feet and meant we didn't use the pools as much as we would have liked. A huge thanks to Chris, Shan and Tharindu for an enjoyable 10 days and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to others. It was great also to meet Chris's family who were also visiting at the same time.

Despite having worried about being so close to the road, we all slept really well. The kids felt completely safe and made very good use of the pool. With Wijaya Beach right around the corner, it was very easy to get to the lagoon and the bar/restaurant. A great stay - but too short! Thank you
