About this location

The Western Province region

Negombo is the ideal place to start and end your Holiday in Sri Lanka. Sun worshippers, prepare to stretch out, curl your toes in the fine yellow sand, and get a superb tan on sundreched palm caressed beaches in Negombo. You can start tours from Negombo to Kandy, Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage, Anuradhapura, Galle, Hikkaduwa, Polonnaruwa, Trincomalee, Yala National Park, Kosgoda.....

The Villa is situated 10 mins from the historic beach city of Negombo. It is also very popular as its only 20 mins from the International Airport. The Villa borders the very famous "Negombo Lagoon". Negombo is one of the most popular towns for tourists . There are plenty of bars (of all types), restaurants and shops. The town also has some ancient catholic churches.

Negombo is historically a Catholic Town and as such people are VERY approachable , generous and welcoming. You will never be short of things to do. There are many things that will entertain you .

Finally, the Villa is also only 40 mins from Colombo (city)


The most relaxing activity is the boat (catamaran) rides along the calm lagoon with a fishing rod! You can watch the endless calm waters, stalks and flying fish!

For the Nature Lovers there are plenty of birds to watch. For the culture lovers there are plenty of Churches to see and the morning fish market is a hustle worth seeing. As Negombo is a fishing town with thousands of colourful fishing boats.

You may also go for rides in the very popular local mode of transport called "Tuk Tuk" - basically it is a three wheel Taxi.

"A fresh breeze for the soul"

The Villa is delightful, with a constant fresh breeze from the lagoon. The location is ideal for trips to Colombo or Negombo and is in a nice quiet community that feels safe. The Jetwing Lagoon resort is just a few hundred meters away.

The breeze is so enjoyable, we preferred to turn off the AC and open the doors at night. Mosquitoes are common in Sri Lanka, but the continuous breeze from the lagoon meant no mosquitoes, a welcome respite I assure you.

The villa has a nice colonial charm, with exposed rafters in the house and verandas. Everything was kept clean and tidy inside and out. Lovely landscaping and a protected walled in yard and gated entry made us feel comfortable, as our younger children do tend to take unannounced excursions (we are travelling with our four children, ages 4-9).

The lagoon is home to lots of creatures so wildlife watching is a lot of fun. In just a few days we had seen two monitor lizards, two ruddy mongoose, and many different birds.

Upul, our host, made sure all our needs were taken care of, yet was sensitive to ensure our privacy - his staff were friendly and helpful.

If you are looking for a beach, I recommend a trip to the Jetwing Negombo resort north or Negombo. The beach is long and the swimming is nice. It's _relatively_ clean. Go past the breakers and the surf is quite calm and with no riptide while we were there, even if the waves do pull hard near the beach. After some initial concern, even the older children were going out past the breakers.

Our stay was delightful and exceeded what we had hoped for.

"Excellent, quiet location near beaches en Negombo and good base for visits to Colombo"

Large house with pleasant garden and veranda direct at the Laguna. Friendly and helpful staff. Pick up services to and from airport or railway station in time. Well equipped kitchen. Bed and bathrooms okay. Living room specious and fine terrace. Shops near by. The Jetwing Laguna hotel is a five minutes stroll and offers a perfect swimming pool (100 m!) and a very good restaurant with reasonable prices. Bus or tuk-tuks services close to the villa. Fish market or local fishermen offer fresh seafood. A great spot for a few relaxing days.
