“Great place and very friendly people - best place with young chi” We traveled as a family with two children (5 an 1,5 years) and stayed in Sandul Villa for one week end of march 2013. For us it is a perfect place, lots of space, great garden, very friendly and helpful people - all you need to make it easy traveling with little children.
We always felt safe and sort of pampered and spoiled by Tarange and Sarat who came every morning to the villa to prepare breakfast for us, drive us around by tuk tuk (on demand) and cook fantastic dinners in the evenings. The villa is as great as it looks on the pictures. There´s even a baby seat for cars, baby chair and a baby bed available - all very clean and happy to be used. Senaka, his family and staff are very friendly and very helpful.
The turtle farm, the boat trip on the river and the temple were great, most of the time we spent on the beach in the lagoon (which is ideal for little children) or "at home" on the terrace and in the garden. Senakas children came around and played with ours happily in the house and in the garden.
When we continued our journey further south Senaka organized us a good driver and even borrowed the baby seat - the change to "normal" accommodations was huge and we told everyone we met on the journey to go to Sandul villa in Beruwela - a great place to stay. We hope very much to come back one day!
