A private villa in Sri Lanka is an incredible option worth considering for part of your Sri Lanka holiday. There is an amazing range of private holiday villas, beach villas, bungalows and hidden hideaways and at a price level that is many times lower than the same standard staffed villa would be in Europe or elsewhere. These villas are always fully staffed and generally very luxurious. They feel in many ways like a private version of your own luxury hotel, but often with an added local and authentic family -run feel.
The personal touch and privacy afforded makes them a fantastic option for anyone who is not looking for the slick service or facilities offered by the larger hotels. They can be superb value too - particularly for families or groups of friends and some are set up just for couples too.
One factor which adds to the value is that food is generally purchased for you at cost price by the staff and cooked for you by the chef. You can even accompany the chef to market, or buy it yourselves if you really want to get involved!
At Experience Travel Group we have selected a select group of very professionally run villas throughout Sri Lanka that we feel will add to any holiday experience. We’d encourage you to talk to us and we’ll talk to you about what could work for you. Call us today on 020 7924 7133 or fill in the form at the bottom of the page.
