Villa - The 'Villa' is a similar concept to the 'holiday home' in Europe, with some key differences. Our villas in Asia are always fully staffed with cooking and service provided for you. Staff will generally cook meals to your specification and purchase food and drink for you at cost price. They are generally pretty smart and luxurious too and feel in many ways like a small private hotel. Nonetheless, your villa is still effectively a home and therefore you cannot expect the same level of training, English speaking or slickness that you might expect from a hotel at a similar cost. As the owners are not generally holiday professionals we cannot guarantee the quality of a villa matches expectations in a way we can with hotels. That said, the personal local touch means villas are generally much more friendly and interactive than hotels and have much to recommend them. The privacy and space makes them wonderful for families, groups of friends or couples looking for privacy and relaxation.
It was clear that Nick was immensely knowledgeable about Sri Lanka and we felt his overall service to assist in identifying the type of holiday we required was superb. All places we stayed in were brilliant but, for novelty value, the Mudhouse was one of the most memorable. From pick-up to departure we can only say that out guide and driver was absolutely magnificent. Always helpful, smiling, knowledgeable we became good friends over the two weeks.
