This was a fantastic place to stay. It feels like home with all the comforts. The room is large and clean, the pool was exactly what our children needed, and most of all, the hospitality of the managers is amazing. They took great care of us and helped us with all our needs. It feels like an oasis in the hustle and bustle of Colombo. It has all the comforts of a big hotel with a feel of a family home. Thank you Colombo Villa for making our Sri Lanka trip wonderful!

The stay was wonderful for a family with young children. The room was spacious and comfortable, and included robes for everyone. The huge 4-poster bed was comfortable and big enough for two adults and a toddler. The pool was small but perfect for kids in the 7-10 range. It even had many "learning" swimming floaties for my toddler to participate in the fun. There were board games available for everyone to play. Our first evening there, we did not want to go out for dinner so we ordered take out and the staff were helpful and accomodating for us to eat poolside. The breakfasts and service made us feel like royalty. There were also fun books to read, including small British books called "Don'ts for Husbands" and "Don'ts for Wives." They provided an evenings' entertainment for my husband and myself and gave some wonderful advice to boot!

Colombo Villas is located in a lovely leafy area of Colombo - it makes for a restful day after travelling or a haven from exploring the city. All rooms are large and the beds are very comfortable, it has a feeling of being in a home not a hotel. The staff are helpful and informative. One added bonus is the resident Ayurvedic Healer Gamini who has a deal talent for his craft and provides excellent Reiki treatments and a very reasonable cost. We really appreciated the advice we were given in terms of where to eat and also on transport decisions - it was a most pleasurable stay and we'd go back anytime we were in Colombo.

Colombo villa is a beautiful place located in a great locality in the heart of Colombo. Accomodations are large and spacious. I took a triple room as it was just one night with my folks and it was perfect. The staff was super nice and what amazing breakfast! They also have a small pool to take a nice dip in. I loved that they had a bicycle and I took it out for a wonderful ride early morning. Location is just perfect and you can just walk around the area. This will totally be my place to stay the next time I visit. Cheers
