Reef Villa & Spa, Wadduwa, Sri Lanka

Charming boutique beach hideaway, ideal for the start or end of your Sri Lanka holiday

Suites from around £300 per night on bed and breakfast basis

Romantic, tropical boutique hotel filled with original colonial antiques, set on a stunning beach on Sri Lanka’s southwest coast, and just a couple of hours from Colombo airport - making this beach retreat a perfect start or finish to your holiday in Sri Lanka.


The 7 suites, named after Sri Lankan flowers, share a wonderful sense of grandeur and comfort. Beautiful writing desks, tables, chairs and other antiques fill each room. All suites are large (100-120 sq.m) and have cool, tiled flooring, air-conditioning and high ceilings with enormous pankah fans. In the modern bathrooms, polished granite is prominent - you could practically swim in the vast tubs. Double sinks stand on a wooden slab in front of a huge Venetian-style mirror and a curve of stone hides your rain shower; some suites have their showers in a small garden. Ayurvedic toiletries include lime and lavender handmade soaps. Each suite has a private terrace, perfect for relaxing or enjoying a private dinner.  

Activities & Experiences

If relaxing by the pool, strolling along the beach, or indulging in a blissful spa treatment isn't sufficient, the hotel can arrange a variety of excursions. Take the hotel's tuk-tuk and driver to the 300 year old Maha Viharatemple in Wadduwa, (15 minutes away) and examine the relief sculptures of Lord Buddha or visit the atmospheric Richmond Castle (20 minutes) to appreciate this fine example of British and Indian colonial architecture. Or head to tourist enclave Bentota, where the hotel can arrange a meandering boat trip through the thick mangrove swamps. 

Facilities & Services

Reef Villa is set in 3 acres of beautiful tropical gardens, with a swimming pool and a tennis court. Plus an excellent little spa that also offers early morning yoga classes.
