“Great Holiday!”
Reviewed 4 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We had a fabulous time at Villa Five - I would highly recommend it for large groups! The staff were all lovely and very attentive, the villa itself was very spacious, well kept, super comfortable beds and great views of the sea from the balconies.

Easy tuk tuk ride into Galle, Unawatuna, and a nice beach bar / restaurant walking distance along the beach.

The kids (there were 7 in our group) had a great time playing in the pool, playing handball, cricket on the lawn, fossicking on the beach out the front and looking for / swimming with the local turtles! The staff cooked great kids dinners every night - such a treat for us to sit back and relax.

Food was great, and nothing was too much trouble for the staff who went out of their way including cooking two birthday cakes for us, decorating the villa with balloons for my daughter's birthday, and organising fireworks on the beach for us, booking babysitters, organising touring vans at short notice, the list goes on.

Apart from a minor hick up with transfers from Columbo on arrival, everything went super smoothly!

Sri Lanka is a great place for families to visit and staying at Villa 5 made it relaxing for everyone. Friendly, safe, fun, interesting!

Hi Caroline,
Thank you so much for the glowing review. The team all commented on what lovely a lovely group of children they were.

We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Villa Five. The team work enjoyed celebrating the birthdays. We haven't had two in the one stay before and never had a child. The staff love spoiling the kids. The fireworks are always a hit too!

Once again, thanks for the lovely review and the adults had time to relax.

“You Must Come”
Reviewed 3 October 2017 for a stay in August 2017

My family and I absolutely loved our 8 day stay at the gorgeous Villa 5. The interior of the villa is a design heaven and every creature comfort has been considered, with both care and flair, making it a stylish abode that appeals to both adult and child. Our spacious rooms had the most divinely comfortable beds and the bathrooms, both the inside ones and outside ones were a complete treat. Each room had a spacious covered balcony, which was perfect if you needed a quiet shady place, whilst still making the most of being outside and of course taking in the breathtaking views of the Indian ocean. There are thoughtful touches everywhere, excellent amenities and the staff are incredibly welcoming and attentive - being always near but never hovering. The pool and outdoor areas are wonderful places to relax during the day and the children spent many delightful hours swimming and cooling off. The food at Villa 5 is delicious, so much so that we ate most of our meals here. The dinners were outstanding both for their value and their taste and their portions were definitely very generous.
There are plenty of excursions available from the hotel and Galle itself is a great place to explore but in all honesty, we didn't feel the need to move far and daily walked just 5 minutes from the villa to a beautiful and safe lagoon, where we relaxed and had fun. Location, location, location......
Thank you Villa 5 for having us stay. We had a wonderful time x

Hi

Thanks for the lovely comment and wonderful review of Villa Five.

It is great to hear that your holiday to southwest Sri Lanka was wonderful. The "devinley comfortable beds", food and service of the team is second to none, and it certainly does make for a more relaxed holiday.

We are indeed lucky to be just a stroll away from the magnificent natural lagoon, and it is a lovely way to spend the endless hours of island life...

We hope you can return again one day!
warmest regards
Danielle

“Luxurious hidden gem”
Reviewed 12 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We recently visited Villa 5 on the beautiful southern coast of Sri Lanka. The setting and location is second to none. The villa itself is the epitome of taste with beautiful attention to detail (bed linens, layout etc) with a feel of luxury throughout. However what further elevates this property is the great team of staff who are fabulous with every need catered for with a smile.

The food and menu offered are delicious and we were also lucky enough to have a cooking class with the chef which was fun and informative.

Highly recommend!

“Absolutely amazing!”
Reviewed 13 June 2017 for a stay in April 2017

What a place! Everything has been thought of here, staff are amazing, food quality and choice extensive and beautiful interiors.
The villa was beyond expectations, with HUGE rooms and bathrooms, masses of outdoor space, DIRECT access onto the beach and close to restaurants, bars etc.
Cannot recommend this place enough!
