"Wished we could have stayed longer!"

We spent 2 nights at Ratnakara and wish it could have been more. The villa is huge as there was just the 2 of us there. It would comfortably fit 12 plus guests. The bedrooms are large and open out on … More

Ratnakara is a luxurious, large and comfortable villa. Set amongst a jungle full of monkeys and beautiful rocky bays. There is a small bay just down the driveway and the walk to the lighthouse is a must. The staff are professional, warm and very attentive to all your needs. The house dogs were friendly and our kids loved them. The pool was huge and I would do laps every morning. We enjoyed the cooking from the chef and found deciding what to eat the most difficult aspect of our day. We absolutely loved staying at this amazing villa and could not recommend it highly enough for every type of traveller. Do your self a favour and book this villa whilst in Srilanka. We are so glad we did...

"Luxurious villa with 5 star hotel service"

Family (2 children, 9 and 11) had a fantastic end to our holiday by staying at Ratnakara for 4 nights. Days spent in the amazing infinity pool with views over ocean and nights spent relaxing and being cooked the best Sri Lankan dishes of our whole holiday.

Very spacious and luxurious accommodation attended by staff who made us feel very welcome and could not do enough for us. Highly recommended and very good value!

"Relaxing, wonderful stay with all the trimmings :-)"

We stayed at Ratnakara for only 3 nights and wished it could have been longer! The villa is wonderful and charming on a grand scale. It sleeps 10 with enough space for privacy if you are travelling with friends or a group. As there was only the two of us we felt like royalty! With a huge pool – (60ft) or so, suspended off the side you get great views and can do laps!
We were well looked after by the staff who were lovely. They gave us space but were attentive when needed. We felt spoilt having all our meals cooked for us and it being just the two of us, but nothing was too much trouble.
There was still some landscaping going on around the villa as the villa is newly built, but that was starting to take shape and given a few more weeks will really add to the 'jungle' charm of the place.
The upstairs lounge is the coolest part of the house as its all open. The breeze is lovely in the evening since the villa sits quite high. We would recommend anyone stay here if you fancy a bit of luxury, want a fabulous holiday and love the privacy of a villa as opposed to a hotel. The food is probably much better!

"most luxurious stay in Sri Lanka"

My girlfriend and I only spend a couple of nights in this amazing villa and had the entire place to ourselfs. This had defnitiely been the most luxurious stay in Sri Lanka and we couldn't help ourselfs to show all our friends the pictures of the villa and offcourse the infinity pool through facebook. The staff is great and the chef cooks amazing meals for you. Wassanta is an excellent host and really looks after you. This is one of those places where you can really relax and don't want to leave. We would love to stay here again.

"An amazing place to stay!"

We were fortunate to be the first guests to stay in this amazing property, which is spacious, well laid out with an great pool too.

The staff are very attentive to your every need and nothing is too much trouble.

Don't be put off by the 4 hr drive from Colombo its definitely worth it, if you are looking for a really relaxing and quiet break away from our action packed lives.

Thoroughly recommended.
