“Paradise”
Reviewed 17 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018

We treated our families on our stay in Sri Lanka and booked Villa Golden. It was perfect! Our two families felt so pampered - we had the beach on our doorstep, the pool, garden, a beautiful home and wonderful, helpful and friendly staff and owners. The food was also delicious! It was very hard to leave to the house to go sightseeing but the surrounding area is also packed with things to do. A lovely surprise was to see the wildlife on the property - chameleons, land monitors, crabs, and two friendly cats. Also the fisherman come onto the beach early morning and you can buy fish fresh from the boat if you’re early enough. If you’re looking to treat yourself this is the place.

“**Wow what an amazing villa we can't wait to return**”
Reviewed 4 January 2018 for a stay in December 2017

From the moment we arrived at Villa Golden for Christmas we could feel our stress disappear after a very long flight . The villa is a lovely size and has lots of places to chill out. The interior design was really tasteful. Large sofas and comfortable beds. My kids loved the pool and the beach is right in front of the villa.
It was great watching the fisherman pull in their daily catch. We brought fish from the fisherman and Pushpa the chef cooked us some amazing meals. Pushpa cooks the best curries we loved the Prawn/Chicken/ Pumpkin curries. The breakfast was very yummy and lots to choose from. The pancakes went down really well with the kids and the adults loved the fresh fruit and buffalo curd everyday. We did go out for dinner but the food wasn't as good as Pushpa.
Susantha was so helpful telling us where to go. We loved Galle its great for shopping and wandering around the streets.
We stayed for Xmas and it was so sad when we had to say goodbye to all of the staff. Villa Golden is a very special place and I can't wait to return thank you Bart and your staff for a wonderful stay.

“Fabulous villa by the ocean!”
Reviewed 17 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Villa Golden is just a short tuk tuk ride from the centre of Galle and well placed for the other beaches in the area. We stayed here as a family for 10 days and it was absolute bliss!

The villa has recently been refurbed so there are two large double rooms with their own bathrooms and another double bedroom which has an interconnecting bathroom with a room with two bunkbeds (sleeps four) in it.

What really made our stay was the staff. They are so friendly and helpful and Pushpa's cooking is incredible! Highly recommend the prawn curry and coconut rice!

There is a lovely pool and you can walk straight from the gardens on to the beach. We came at the beginning of the off season but were lucky with the weather as only a few storms.

Yes the wifi is a bit slow but are you really coming on holiday to sit on your ipad?!

Fabulous villa and would highly recommend!

Another wonderful time at Villa Golden with Pushpa, Susantha and Bandular. We mostly relaxed and enjoyed the pool, the garden and company of our dear friends there. Pushpa's curries were again delicious and Eddie our 8 year old son just adored being Susantha's shadow for the 8 days we were there. By chance we went for dinner in Hikkaduwa and met a super kind family with a Batik making business. Eddie was offered to return the following morning and make his own. This was definitely a highlight of our stay, such a experience for a little boy to work with a really local lady and produce his own elephant Batik in their back yard. We ate out a couple of times, but with Pushpa's delicious food, it was hard to top. We will miss everyone there a great deal, but plan to return as soon as we can. A big fat thank you to everyone who has made our stay so perfect.

“Overall a relaxing stay, but had some downfalls.”

We stayed at Golden Beach villa for two weeks 2-17 July 2016 with a family of four. We were expecting some rain but we're lucky with hot sunny weather for the two weeks. Only when we left did the weather change to sunny, windy and rainy all in one day. All the villa staff Pushpa, Susantha and Bahdula were lovely, polite, kind and very helpful. The meals were freshly prepared based on our choice, we just paid for the ingredients. However we noticed some of the ingredients purchased were very expensive for example we were charged for cooking oil equivalent to euro 5.65 . So if you want to eat in, be prepared to pay a similar price to the restaurant. Bahdula the night security was very discreet and we never felt he was intruding in the evenings. The villa was comfortable and clean but the decor is in need of refresh. The view outside the villa was amazing and it was lovely to take our meals on the patio overlooking the sea. The villa was very relaxing and we made full use of the swimming pool and the hammocks. We took walks along the beach and took some local trips with advise from the villa staff. Note there was some building work going on right next door and we could hear some drilling and hammering and It did impact us. It would be helpful to have a pack made up with information on places to go and recommended restaurants etc. Our daughter was kindly allowed to watch Pushpa prepare and cook some meals and is going to practise some dishes at home. We were disappointed that the Internet connection was slow and did not always work. If you need to rely on Internet connection then the broad band will not work for you how ever the engineers came several times for repair you can get between 00.07 to 4.5 mps. We noticed in local cafes and restaurants you could get up to 30 MPs We had some great trips out in tuck tucks to local venues for example to Galle, which was enchanting. We had a very relaxing holiday.
