“Beautiful Villa - our 2nd holidays at Villa Tanjuro”

As the first time, we have spent relaxing and beautiful vacations at the very confortable Villa Tanjuro with great pool. Priyankha's Cooking is excellent and we enjoyed very much the help of Jayantha for all other needs.
Beaches: Jayantha has arranged a good and friendly Tuktuk Driver for us. He showed all the perfect swimming beaches, near Tangalle.
One day trips to Yala and other places in South Sri Lanka can be arranged.
We are missing the kindness and smiling of Jayantha an Priyankha and would like to recommand the Villa for perfect holidays to everyone. Many thanks to Romain and Juliana for her friendly help, arranging such beautiful holidays for us.

Our 10-day stay at Villa Tanjuro was a cultural experience thanks to Priyanka and Jayentha who so generously shared their lives and culture with us. They helped us with everything and prepared amazing authentic meals for us. The villa looks exactly like in the photos and we felt very much at home. The pool area is lovely, as is the pool. We would love to come back! Villa Tanjuro is a true gem!

“Amazing holiday and stay”

Sorry for late review Romain but we have only just got sorted from moving house , sold our house whilst in Villa and its been non stop since
I will start by saying the communication with the owner was superb and the booking process was very easy. It was a bit scary arranging every thing from England flights , air port pickup Villa, and two other Hotels we stayed in but it all went to plan.
Traveled with Emirates for the first time can not praise them enough the A380 was amazing.

Romain gave me the number of a driver he uses and i arranged directly with him to be picked up from airport the trip down south was just over 4 hours the new motorway made a huge difference, stopped half way for a short break .
When we pulled in to the lane where the villa is situated in Tangalle we were pretty tied but excited , we were met by the Villa manager Jayantha and his wife Pryanka who laid on some cool drinks for us after which we were shown round the villa, my daughter was going to use the separate bungalow but opted for second bedroom in main Villa.
I did arrange for Pryanka to cook lunch and Dinner for us during our stay but after a few days opted just for dinner as we are just use to snacks at lunch time, Pryanka does not hold back on the number of courses and we found it too much for us and i hate to see food wasted after the effort she puts in, you just tell her what you fancy and she will cook it for you for a small fee plus the cost of food , which is very cheap .
If you wish to do some cooking yourselves the supermarket on the left at the top of the main street is English quality and cheap and air conditioned,only 6 minute walk away we always got a tuk tuk back to the front of lane so lazy, we bought our water from the first shop on the corner after you turn left out of the lane.
I have to say we only saw a couple of other western people during our stay as it was out of season but we did feel safe at all times , it was a delight not to be pestered by beggars and people trying to sell you something like many holidays we have been on. English is spoken in all the shops and banks.
The villa was clean though out with some lovely furniture in the lounge, nice big beds mattress could be thicker, no running hot water, but electric shower good be a bit careful when showering as floor does get slippery, the cooking is done on gas hotplates and the kitchen is well equipped.
I did find it strange that none of the sinks had plugs which made washing up a bit awkward.
Gardens and pool are great, temperature of water just right for cooling off,was cleaned daily by Jayantha, had monkeys in the garden a couple of times which was exciting especially for my wife who locked herself in the bedroom.


The beach which is one minute away was always totally deserted, was a little scruffy a lot of rubbish on tide line but still beautiful went on for miles , high waves made it to dangerous for swimming , used to go up for walks and watch the fisherman bring in nets, couple of bars on beach and restaurant.
I did arrange arrange two hotels before we left England one at Undawalawe safari resort as we were doing afternoon safari and needed to stay overnight one word superb, and the other one was for overnight stay near Colombo airport night before flight back again good hotel sorry cant remember name.
The trips i would recommend are Undawalawe safari taking in elephant orphanage , Turtle watching, long walk at night but amazing. we rounded holiday off with a three day trip which we arranged through our driver , we went to Ella in the highlands what a trip up stayed overnight and then took train through the highlands 26 tunnels and the driver met us at Nuwara Eliya what a amazing trip, then went on to Kandy stayed overnight then went to Temple of the tooth very busy as it was Poona time but added to atmosphere , then went to tea factory and finally to Hotel for last night.
It was with out doubt the best holiday we have had Country amazing (sorry for keep using that word) Villa and staff excellent great things to see round ever corner what more can i say.

Reviewed 16 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

A very nice holiday villa. The couple who manage and cook were very nice and accommodating. The food was very nice. The pool is a good size and was enjoyed by all. Ideal place for a barbecue; owners should consider getting one.
