The place is a really great place to stay, the rooms are huge, and very comfy. The food served to us was amazing we had the breakfast and dinner there every day and were left stuffed after each course. Would recommend to anyone visiting Colombo.

What a great way to learn the meaning of the Sri Lankan greeting, Ayubowan, as my family of 5 was welcomed into this wonderful urban chic oasis strategically located from central Colombo, airport, and access to major roads to key destinations around Sri Lanka. The setting is an ideal escape for rest and relaxation, or from the chain hotels found... More

Just average. Water clogs on balcony when it rains and they find it difficult to drain them. Photos yet to be updated in the website. Friendly staff but overall experience is just average. Call villa and check on each details before booking.

We used La Villa Santuary for our last destination of our backpacker tour through Sri Lanka, before we went back to Germany. A bit outside of Colombo, but town visit is good manageable by tuk-tuk. The communication before we arrived was quite good, professional and helpful and train station pick-up as well as airport transfer at the end of our... More

One of the best rooms we had in Sri Lanka. As we were the only guests there, we got a room upgrade with the staff really taking care of our every wish. They organised dinner which was delicious and reasonabelly priced. They were also very helpful checking our train times, organising tuk tuks and generally giving useful tips. The only... More

I think this has to be the best place in colombo. Our room was large and has beautiful views. We spotted many native birds and other animals. There's a nice pool & very quiet location. Staff Anthony and Raja added a special touch to our 2 days in this place. BBQ was fantastic. The place is very modern and architectural.... More

This place is a gem amidst the busy city of Colombo. Set in a scenic location with beautiful lush greenery near the Parliament building, It's just a few minutes drive to town. Here, you can enjoy their super friendly butler service, a wonderful personal chauffeur and chef who really make you feel pampered. The villa, including the private pool, is... More
