Lovely villa just a short tuk tuk ride from Galle. Very friendly staff and great driver. Excellent beds and showers. Superb pool and large garden. Steps lead up to the ocean but there was no access at this time of year due to high tides.
Food was very nice - it might be an idea to have a list of dishes from which guests could choose.
Lovely villa with a beautiful large garden leading directly to the sea. Due to the time of year there was no beach but the view of the sea was fantastic. The pool was amazing and we spent many afternoons relaxing in the peace and tranquility of the garden, listening to the sound of the Ocean. Great staff, nothing was too much trouble, from ordering transport, trips to shopping and drinks, and lovely breakfasts. Perfect base for exploring, Taranaga the driver was a perfect guide and very accommodating. Also, Tuk Tuks readily available. Galle is about 10 minutes away by Tuk Tuk and Unawatuna around 20 minutes - both worth a visit.
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.
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.
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!
