Sri Lanka, South West Beaches
Info : Rock Villa
This is a lovely heritage-style beach front villa on the south-west coast of Sri Lanka, with beautiful accommodation, a great pool and impeccable service.
Rock Villa is the newest addition to well-known villa management company Taru Villas, and this new beach-front property is very much in keeping with their high standards and excellent reputation. The villa itself is white-washed and has lovely colonial touches such as ornately carved window boxes, exposed wooden beams and a terraced veranda. Inside there is plenty of space and light, with elegant décor and lovely period-style furnishings. The villa is set amidst 2.5 acres of tropical gardens and coconut palm groves and is set back 60metres from the beach. The beach itself is clean, un-crowded and beautiful – a perfect, peaceful spot. There is also a large swimming pool with sunbeds, hammocks and parasols.
There are 4 deluxe rooms and a sumptuous two bedroom suite allowing space for up to 12 people. All rooms are en-suite with clean, modern bathrooms, A/C, safe boxes and fans, with the suite also boasting a private veranda, dining room and pantry. All rooms are bright and airy with comfortable beds and lovely furnishings. The staff at Rock Villa are extremely attentive and helpful, and the food is always freshly prepared, authentic and delicious. They make sure the candles are lit at night, the pool is clean and that there are plenty of snacks available throughout the day.
This villa is in an ideal location and is absolutely beautiful throughout. It’s a perfect choice for families, groups of friends travelling together and for anyone looking to end their holiday in Sri Lanka in style on a beautiful beach. Highly recommended.
Deluxe - This is our first really 'upmarket' category. It might be a beautiful tiny hotel with very limited facilities or a 5* resort hotel with all the trimmings; but any hotel in this category will be a well-run establishment with very comfortable rooms, a strong service ethos and excellent food.

Being the only guests in several locations, and one of only a couple in others, we stayed in the best rooms and enjoyed lots of little surprises along the way.
