It is about two hours drive from Colombo airport. We could not have chosen anywhere better. We would rate it excellent in every category -...

Following a 10 day trip around the hill country of Sri Lanka, we finished our second trip to Sri Lanka with a return trip to Reef Villa & Spa. Once again, it exceeded our expectations. Despite a succession of luxury hotels and resorts on our 10 day visit, our two children again announced that Reef is the "most fabulous" of...

We stayed at Reef Villa for 7 nights, and it was everything that we had hoped for...and more. There are only 7 suites at this marvelous Boutique hotel, and we stayed in one of the 4 ocean suites.

First, we feel qualified to write this report as we are travelling extensively for pleasure in Asia, South America, japan and Europe. We do only 5 star boutique hotels or small luxury resorts and rate on such comparable basis. The Reef Villa is clearly one of the best hotels in Sri Lanka. The design and deco is fantastic and the...

Dear Wolfgang and Helle Thank you so much for staying with us. My puppies seem to be causing mischief! But they are so little and just love to play.
