Fantastic experience to stay here. Each room and the overall hotel has had the fullest attention to detail with nothing left unthought of. The surroundings and location make you forget all about any city hustle and bustle and the staff are simply exceptional. The range and depth of food was really satisfying, and the kitchen would also prepare some specific meals we requested too. We've been lucky to stay in many good hotels around the world, but Reef Viillas has the best combination of location, facilities, design, atmosphere and staff attentiveness that we've experienced. Would highly recommend and stay again without hesitation.

Finest Boutique hotel I've ever visited

Posted Oct 6, 2015
Location: the property touches the water. While the beach is not world class, the property faces the west which is ideal for sunset. The pool is lovely as well.
The Irish proprietor is always on site to welcome and greet the guests. He makes the experience as personal as a hotel stay can possibly be. Not only did he build and design the property, train and manage the staff, but he also takes personal care of each guest, ensuring they feel like a guest in his home. The devil is in the details. At this boutique, no stone is left unturned. Every coffee table book, napkin, pillow case, and door knob is hand picked or custom made. The property is immaculate and the service is nothing short of excellent. problem solving staff anticipate your every need and even go beyond that. While eating breakfast, one staff with idle time walked the beach and selected the finest shells and delivered them to me while I ate. I didn't ask for it - he just did it. What a nice little gift I thought. I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling in Sri Lanka who may be looking for a boutique hotel rather than a big beach resort. The character of this place cannot be replicated. it is truly special. wonderful sunsets, nice pool. Privacy. Big beautiful villa suite rooms full of antiques and colonial trinkets. great food and personal relationships with those serving you.

Reef Villa and Spa

Posted Oct 12, 2014 on Hotels
Just had the most amazing and relaxing week at Reef...from driving through the wooden gates, entering the main house and the ocean suite (Namal) just blew us away from the moment we arrived!! The beautiful colour schemes, size of the rooms, the granite bath, rainfall shower, the many historical artefacts, pictures, floor tiles, not to mention the beautiful grounds, swimming pool, outdoor restaurant and gardens, every detail has been so carefully planned and selected by Brendan and Bernadette. The extremely high standard of service, the staff, the most amazing food also make Reef one of the very best places we have ever stayed!!! A favourite of ours was enjoying the most stunning sunsets by the pool with cocktails each evening. We will definitely be returning!!! A huge thanks to Brendan and Malith (General Manager) for a perfect week!

Wonderful break.

Posted Sep 7, 2014
Pros: Everything
Cons: Backs on to the beach a little off putting when you come to the hotel across the railway line but once I side. Heaven
Nothing to fault, food room staff were excellent. Felt very relaxed would go back again. Thank you Brendon Patricia
