“Excellent and Enjoyable Stay at Samadara”
Reviewed 22 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We really enjoyed our stay at Samadara. Its a new villa so it hasn't really been discovered yet but you wont be disappointed if you try it out. The design and setting of the house, set on gentle hill top overlooking acres of paddy land. Its just fifteen minutes fro the best surf at Midigamma and 25 minutes at most to best beginners surf at Welligama. Its really cool. Lovely big rooms, very tastefully decorated. Madura and his wife are complete stars. Thanks you.….I will come again. Definitely.

“Sometimes dreams come true”
Reviewed 21 July 2015 for a stay in January 2015
person found this review helpful

Samadara – the name of the house took me straight back to childhood afternoons, reading a book and lost in glorious, far-away places. No way was I going to forgo the lush jungles, wild animals and tea plantations, where the children had exotic adventures and drank lemonade made with freshly picked lemons, for an ordinary game of hopscotch outside.
And, miraculously, I was not disappointed. When the car came up the driveway twisting and turning between cinnamon fields and coconut palms, I knew that Samadara had it all, the beauty and thrill of extravagant nature with its huge jackfruit trees and sweet-smelling frangipanis, flowering climbers and flamboyant birds.
The house itself is spacious, elegant and cool and reveals the cleverness of the two women who created it, the famous architect and the mistress of the house.
There are spring hoppers in the mornings, lazy minty drinks by the huge pool before supper, cool rooms and beds equipped with mattresses that you would never willingly get out of – only the mornings are too beautiful to miss! Also, how could you not venture outside the grounds to explore the villages, the ancient sculptures carved in the rocks, the Buddhist temples and the nearby beaches, try the prewar train that takes you all along the coast to end in Galle Fort, and where you invariably strike up conversations with the other passengers, for the Sri Lankans are open and kind.
I shall be back, hopefully!
