Just had the most amazing 4 nights at Ambalama. The place is just gorgeous (although some areas look a bit tired).. and very comfortable. The staff are some the most hospitable I’ve ever come across in Sri Lanka - the chef Roshan’s food was delicious and we were so well looked after by Gayan, dilshan, Dileepa and watchman Thilak. We will most definitely be back again!

Room Tip: Sea in front of the villa is not good for swimming so you have to walk a few meters away

We chose Ambalama for the location of our wedding and were blown away by its beauty when we finally arrived. The location is idillic with views of the ocean and beach along with the beautiful grounds themselves. The staff were outstanding and were happy to assist with any issue big or small and the food prepared was fantastic. I hope to return again at some point in the future.

Location of the place was at perfect proximity from most of the pubs and experiences we needed. The villa it self is very basic and authentically beautiful with a wide beach view that relaxes your eyes. The staff are very attentive to your needs and the chef's food is good. Make sure you ask Roshan for his chocolate cake.

Returning for a second visit, the villa is just how I remembered it from 5 years ago. Well maintained, very comfortable and picturesque as ever. The ocean swells and strong breeze this time of year kept us away from seaside frolicking, but the infinity pool was the perfect alternative. Chef Roshan’s skills in cooking, baking and grilling anything to perfection meant that we didn’t want to eat anywhere else. From Sri lankan to Western to Chinese cuisine, he puts his heart in his cooking, and the results are delectable. Each one on the staff team did his part to ensure we were well looked after. It is truly an idyllic location and so well fitted and staffed that Ambalama is a truly a home away from home!

We have visited several times & Ambalama remains the perfect place to get away from the hustle & bustle of city life. The staff are as gracious as ever - attentive, helpful & service is from the heart. They seem to be able predict your every need as if by telepathy! The villa of 4 large double rooms has seen improvements over the years & is beautifully maintained. The Ambalama team led by Head Chef Roshan was always spot on & food was absolutely delicious - from Western to Chinese to Sri Lankan. Breakfast was a delight & each afternoon, we were surprised by a wonderful cake or some savoury morsel - so delicious. It was a pleasure planning the daily menu with the chef & his skill/diversity is impressive! July is hot & humid in Sri Lanka - the seas were ferocious & did not allow us to swim in it but the infinity pool was perfect! We had a totally relaxing week & highly recommend if you want some down time to recharge & rejuvenate! Thank you Chris & the team @ Ambalama!
